    I think only one airport near Kona but check that. Airport is really close to Kona the city. May be another airport on other side of island so it depends where you stay. Weather, it is Hawaii so always WONDERFUL

    I honestly don't know. I did see golf carts but they were being used exclusively by the staff. I would suggest you give the resort a call.
