Five Reasons we Have Been so Successful
National Golf Tours started in 1977 when Gene and Diane decided to take advantage of an airline promotional offer to receive one free ticket to Hawaii if your brought a group.  Voila! The first NGT was underway!


For the first few years the group went strictly to Oahu, as the tours coincided with the Hawaiian Open PGA event. In the late 80’s, outer islands were added to the itinerary. Over the past 29 years NGT guests have played almost every public, private and Military course in the islands, including: Oahu CC, Honolulu CC, Mid Pac CC, Koolau, Turtle Bay, Makaha, Hickam AFB, Waikele, Ko Olina, Kapolei (Oahu), Kapalua, Kaanapali, Wailea, Makena, Maui Lanai & King Kamehameha (Maui), Manele Bay (Lanai) Mauna Kea, Kona CC, Hapuna, Mauna Lani, Waikoloa (3), Makelei, Waimea & Discovery Harbor (Hawaii), Princeville Prince and Makai, Poipu Bay, Kiele, Puakea, Wailua (Kauai) and others. This February, NGT guests will enjoy play on the island of Hawaii. Weather conditions are usually perfect on the Big Island.

NGT golfers may always look forward to Winter, Summer and Fall tours each season

Pre-Set Tee Times
The main perk of an NGT tour is the time saved when your golf schedule is arranged in advance of play, leaving more time for you to practice, travel and socialize with other guests. Just request the specific NGT Golf Itinerary for your upcoming golf vacation. This helps you plan the days you choose to join in the daily fun and games. Large groups have clout! We often obtain reduced guest green fees as well as being able to book play at many quality private venues in the Hawaiian islands.

Daily Golf Tournaments
for Men, Women and Teams. Prize fund included in this nominal golf/travel package. Competitions include: Stableford, Individual Low Gross/Net, Team 2-Ball Net Foursome, Orange Ball, Low Putts, Nassau, ECCE 9, Foursome 123, Better 9, Closest to the Pin, and others. Fourteen golfers have achieved HOLES-IN-ONE during NGT daily tournament play. In each competition you will play in a division with other golfers of your skill level.

Plan Ahead and Save
Last minute, impulse travel planning, is the major reason for High travel costs to that favorite golfing hot spot! Often the prime golf times are already gone. NGT golf is booked months in advance to gain group discounts and ideal play arrangements.

Pamper yourself. This golf tour is quite different from going on your own. It is a Guided Excursion. 60-100 hours have preceded your departure date to make absolutely sure all those stress areas have been eliminated for you. Relax and think about your game. The primary reason over 60% of NGT guests return each year, is the knowledge that substantial advance planning has been done to make their annual vacation fun and carefree.

“Every year we are  energized by the happy, class reunion atmosphere on these tours. It is obvious at the start of every tour that golfers have a great sense of humor, demonstrating a well-developed ability to give and take a joke. This relaxes all of us and makes for a good time on the course, off the course, and at group socials. Being around golfers and kidding with them is a winner every time for us.”
