The Prince Course, just .8 miles from the house, was named the Number One golf course in the State of Hawaii. By Golf Digest. It is also included in their prestigious list of "America's 100 Greatest Golf Courses." The Prince is one of Hawaii's most challenging golf courses, with a USGA course rating of 75.3 and a 145 slope. But fear not. Five different tees on each hole allow you to set your own challenge. Named after Prince Albert, the only son of King Kamehameha IV and Queen Emma, The Prince is Robert Trent Jones, Jr.'s masterpiece. Looking as if it had emerged full-blown from nature, it chugs uphill, jumps ravines and careens downhill like a roller-coaster. Adjoining it is one of the most magnificent golf and clubhouse facilities in the world, the 60,000 square foot Princeville Golf Club. Here, golfers can enjoy the amenities of the Princeville Health Club & Spa and the Princeville Restaurant & Bar. http://www.princeville.com/play/prince_desc.html
