A Match Made in Paradise – Your Perfect Golf Vacation – Your Daughter’s Dream Destination Wedding
If you are dreaming of the perfect golf vacation, and if your daughter is dreaming of the perfect destination wedding, then a trip to Maui might be the solution to your problem. For a wedding on Maui, there is no requirement for either the bride or groom to be US citizens. All are welcome. Maui weddings are extremely popular among citizens of Pacific Rim countries, be they Americans, Canadians, Australians, New Zealanders, Chinese, Japanese or Koreans. Maui weddings are especially popular among golfers.
Maui County, which includes the islands of Maui, Lanai and Moloka’i, is home to some of the most spectacular golf courses on earth. The two courses on Lanai, known as The Challenge at Manele and The Experience at Koele, are no doubt the most impressive, and there are package day trips to those courses, with transportation by boat from Lahaina on the island of Maui. On Maui, there are many impressive courses in Makena, Wailea and Kapalua, and there is a beautiful course in Spreckelsville, the Maui Country Club, which dates from 1925.
Should you take advantage of groups rates to fly your entire wedding party to Maui, should you decide to give your daughter away on the beautiful island of Maui, then a wild beach wedding might be just the thing for you. Beach weddings are very popular on Maui, where there are beautiful white sand beaches, with crystal clear to turquoise-colored water, smooth as glass on the surface. Between January 1st and February 25th of this year, 684 beach wedding permits were issued for the island of Maui, alone.
Only 183 were issued on the island of Kauai, during the same time period, only 191 on Oahu, only 32 on the Big Island, and none on either Moloka’i or Lanai. Maui is the place that people come to marry. Typically, a father will walk his daughter down an aisle of frangipani blossoms, right there on the beach, where he will give her away in marriage, making for some spectacular wedding photos. Should you bring your wedding party to Maui, you will even have the opportunity to rent a large vacation house or estate, sufficiently large for yourself and your wife, the bridal couple, and all of your guests.
A Maui golf and wedding vacation offers many exiting opportunities for entertainment, including helicopter tours, luaus, sunset dinner cruises under sail, and relaxing spa treatments. Amazingly, some parents have so much fun at their daughter’s Maui wedding, that they return on their own anniversary for a vow renewal ceremony – and another opportunity to golf on Maui and Lanai.
Visitors planning to stay anywhere from Lahaina to Kapalua fly into JHM – Kapalua West Maui Airport, while visitors intending to stay in Spreckelsville usually fly into OGG – Kahului Airport.
