The golf is pretty good in Hawaii, that's no secret. But few people, especially couples, go to Hawaii just to play golf. That's why staying at a nice, centrally located resort can be paramount. The Sheraton Kona Resort & Spa at Keauhou Bay is one of those resorts. Centrally located on the Kona Coast between several great golf courses, it's also a perfect launching point for many other wonderful activities. Mike Bailey has more from the Big Island.
There are two golf courses at Kona Country Club on Hawaii's Big Island -- the Ocean and the Mountain. But if you want cool ocean views, the Mountain -- not the Ocean -- is where you'll want to play. The course, as its name would imply, certainly has a mountain feel, but it also has a mountain viewpoint, meaning that the best seats in the house are often the highest.
