Six islands in the South Pacific make up American Samoa, the most southerly of the territories of the US. Samoa is almost literally the center of Polynesia, being about equidistant from Tahiti, Hawaii and New Zealand. The native culture had become permeated with influences from the US by the Sixties, and some places around the islands have suffered from excessive commercialization. Nevertheless, the tropical climate continues to attract tourists by the tens of thousands every year. And though the main island, Tutuila, is less than 100 square miles, room has been found for a full-sized layout. The local parks and recreation department oversees Ili'ili Golf Course; and even if its 18 holes are nothing special, it is still in one of the world's paradises.
