Large open forgiving fairways!

Course was amazing but the high winds made it challenging often going up 2-3 clubs and down 1-2 clubs. The wide fairways were nice. The course was further off the beach and up in the hills more than I had thought

Fun Upcountry Course

Was looking for a nice course but didn’t want to spent $250 plus a round. Read the recent reviews and was ready to give it a try. Course was really nice and the staff were great. Kept us in the loop on when we should head to the first tee. Course was a cool layout with pretty generous fairways. The greens appeared to have been recently vertical-cut but rolled pretty nice despite. I would recommend and at the hot deal price of $28.00. Yes so so worth it.

Nice option to the resort courses

First course played on the island and adjusting to the turf and wind made play a bit more challenging. Played two other resort courses and found the rough here more punishing than the other two. The bunkers have pea gravel instead of sand and that was another adjustment.
Overall well maintained and in good condition with great views.

Best bang for your buck on the Big Island

I’ve played this course several times. Staff are always friendly, course is usually in good shape and pace is generally 4 hours or less. This time I had an 8:06 tee time and played in 3.5 hours with a gentleman that was local. It’s been a joy every time I go and definitely best bang for your buck in the area.

Very nice experience

This is a great, affordable Big Island golfing option. There is a lot to like about the course as it is in great shape with good amenities. The fairway grass is quite long so the course plays longer, sometimes much longer than the yardage. I also found, for whatever reason, that I needed one more club than the yardage indicated on my approach shots as the uphills were steeper than they looked in many cases. The greens are well protected with pea gravel bunkers so it's a good test.

Nice course

Some rough spots in the fairways. No sand, just crushed stone in the traps. Otherwise good condition and layout. Friendly staff and good pace of play for large number of players. Enjoyed playing and would recommend others to play.
