Say ‘Aloha’ to a Golf Family Getaway

Fragrant plumeria floating on candlelit water…surfers catching gentle Waikiki waves…a round of golf on some of the world’s most beautiful courses. These are the images that come to mind when  someone mentions Hawai’i, and now the keiki (kids) can join in on the fun for free! Choose from Oahu’s breathtakingly lush fairway or Big Island’s black-lava lined championship golf greens with Prince Resort’s new Kid’s Golf Free Promotion. With three resorts in paradise, this is an excellent opportunity for parents to take to the greens with the kids for a family day of golf; and who knows…it could ignite the mini-Martin Kaymer or Yani Tseng’s inside them.

Golf is a healthy and social sport that provides fitness benefits while having fun. Known to help improve cardiovascular health, increase focus, provide a good dose of of Vitamin D (aka the sun vitamin: which is essential for strong bones) and a better night’s sleep (believe me, even 9 holes will have getting the best sleep of your life.)

Now, about where you’ll be sleeping. On the Big Island, sister properties Mauna Kea Beach Resort and Hapuna Prince Hotel are located on the golden sands of Kauna’oa Beach. The former, opened in the 60’s, is a Kohala Coast landmark, the latter boasts all ocean-facing-for-sunsets-to-die-for rooms. Both have dining options from the super casual to the extra fancy (though laid-back Hawai’i-style attire is fine throughout the properties.) In O’ahu, the Hawai’i Prince lays at the beginning of Waikiki and fronts Ala Wai Boat Harbor (made famous in the opening credits of Gilligan’s Island) and enjoys the sprawling ‘Ewa plains as home to their 27-hole championship golf course.

Kid’s Golf Free is available at the Hawaii Prince Golf Club for children ages 12 to 17 years old accompanied by a golf round purchased by a parent. The promotion is valid from April 1 through December 18, 2011.

Bonus! From April 1 through September 30, 2011 the resorts have a Kids Eat Free promotion for when the day of golf makes them ready for delicious meal. For more details and to book visit
