Golf Tour: Showing The Kauai Lagoons Course –
By Wayne Halm –
Not enough time for golf – but enough for some fun.
On November 17th 2014 I showed five meeting planning magazine editors and writers the Kauai Lagoons Golf Course. You bet I enjoyed this – a writer just can’t meet too many editors.
The Editors and Writers:
Dan Johnson – Senior Editor – Smart Meetings
Susan Campbell – Editorial Director – Elite Meetings Magazine
Natalie Dupuis – Assistant Editor – Collision Media
Eric Anderson – Digital Content Developer – Meetings Focus
Bruce Serlen – Freelance Writer – Cvent.Com
I was asked to show them this 18 hole Jack Nicklaus designed championship course – and do it in an hour and a half. That is a tall order, I had to put the pedal to the metal.
We stopped on the 5th hole to appreciate the challenge – and talk about Mango trees, pigs, and other wild things.
Out near the airport we watched a plane land – and looked at the Macadamia Nut trees.
On the 14th hole we paused to admire the ocean views and take a picture.
We stopped at the 16th tee and took another group picture before touring this signature hole.
On the 17th and 18th holes we looked out over the ball devouring lagoons and talked about the Trade Winds.
Okay, maybe it wasn’t as much fun as actually playing the course, but we did what we could with the time we had. Still, there were smiles – oh yeah, there were smiles.
Come play golf with me.

Beautiful photos! Looks like you gave a great tour despite not having time to play the course. I assure you that a tour will not suffice for me, I’ll need to play!!
Thank you – and yes, you do need to play this course. Come play golf with me.
