Ginella in Hawaii: Best value golf course for each island

With some of the finest hotels and golf courses in the country, Hawaii can certainly be an expensive destination. But that doesn't mean you have to go broke playing golf.

Thanks in part to a strong local golf community, Hawaii is one of the better states in the U.S. when it comes to (relative) bargain courses, featuring some outstanding municipal and daily-fee facilities.

And the best part is, on each of the four main islands, you can find at least one great bargain.

I detail my favorites in this Golf Channel Morning Drive segment with Gary Williams.

Four great value golf courses in Hawaii

• Top value golf on Kauai: Wailua Golf Course

• Top value golf on Maui: Kahili Golf Course
