Shanks for the Memories

In the winter of 1988, with all of four months under my belt as travel editor at Golf Magazine, I assigned myself the task of visiting Hawaii, specifically the Big Island, Kauai and Maui.
Like any jaded New Yorker with a few stamps in his passport, I traveled to Maui under the impression that the Valley Isle’s reputation as a barefoot paradise had long since faded.. I figured beautiful Maui had morphed into overbuilt MOW-ee. At …
