Against the clear sky, Waianae mountains and happy clouds — at our feet, the fairway stretches out to an undulating green reflecting in a mirror lake — it’s the 397-yard, par 4 ninth hole of the “A” nine at the fabulous Hawaii Prince Golf Club in Ewa. Arnold Palmer and Ed Seay designed it to challenge and delight golfers at all levels of play. Now, in retirement, you get to tee off here.

It’s not a daydream — throw your clubs in the car! Hawaii Prince Golf Club kama‘aina greens fees are $59 every day; but Mondays and Tuesdays, seniors over 60 can make advance tee times and play for just $39. Have lunch or breakfast at the Bird of Paradise while you are there.

Director of Golf Ted McAneeley told us, “All three nines are fairly open, with many ways to the hole, so everyone can have fun. There is no better instruction than Brian Mogg’s Golf Academy, right here at Hawaii Prince. PGA teaching professionals will sharpen your game or share the basics in private or group lessons.” If golf is on your bucket list, check it off now.

McAneeley knows sports. He played hockey for the Edmonton Oilers in Canada and the Seibu Ice Hockey Team in Japan. The Seibu Company recruited him in 1986 to open Prince Resort properties in Hawai‘i. After that, he became GM of Hawaii Prince Hotel Waikiki, and later, Mauna Kea and Hapuna Beach resorts. Eventually, Ted found his way back to the Hawaii Prince Golf Club. For all his success, McAneeley is a humble man who lives aloha. At Hawaii Prince Golf Club, he offers seniors and golfers of every age a friendly, world-class golf experience.
