View Full Version : Disc golf in Hawaii?
December 7th, 2009, 11:57 AM
Does anyone know of any courses or disc golf activity on OAHU?
i have google searched it and found a few websites but they all seem to contradict each other (some sites says there are no permanent courses, some say there are, ect)
I want to send a few discs to my cousin (who does not know anything about disc golf) in Honolulu for Christmas, but i was not sure if he would be able to use them on a real course.
So if anyone personally knows anything about the disc golf scene on oahu let me know

There are no permanent courses on O'ahu. There's an unofficial object course at UH-Manoa, and the local club (http://www.hdga.org/) has semi-regular events where they set up portable baskets at various parks, but that's about it. The only real courses in Hawaii are on Maui.

what adam says is correct. i played the UH Manoa course a few months ago when i was there on business. my review (along with others) is here: http://www.dgcoursereview.com/course.php?id=3095
it was enjoyable to play, although it would be hard to sustain Disc Golf as a hobby on Oahu with the limited window of play time available.

What is the deal with Oahu and DG courses? Are the people just shoehorned in too tight for any room to huk? Is there a law against the importation of galvanized steel? I remember when I was there. I was 19 and couldn't even rent a Honda 90 to ride around the island because you had to be 20. I was stuck at Pearl Harbor or in downtown Honolulu. That really sucked, though for some reason, there was a military base right on Waikiki Beach that served alcohol to servicemen of any age. It was the first time my government ever let me get drunk, even helped. So, why is Hawaii so far out of the loop?

I was on the big island a couple years ago and there was at least one and rumors of two courses. One was near Hilo and I didn't get a chance to play it but there was at least one stunning shot over the surf from cliff to cliff.
Most of what I read at the time was that you should go with a local since they don't take kindly to strangers showing up on their course...

December 7th, a good day to crash their courses.

I spent the last 3 years playing disc golf in Hawaii. I was living on Oahu and what Adam says is true. The local club, HDGA, sets up a course every month and hosts a tournament. There are no permanent baskets on the island. However, Maui has 2 permanent courses that are both very fun. They have a website too, mauidga.com (i think). There are a few sanctioned tournaments each year starting with the big island open in January. A super party and a phenomenal tournament. If you want any more info send me a PM and I'll do my best.

http://www.MauiDGA.org/ -- but the site doesn't have any obvious info about the courses!
