Waikoloa Village golf, wide and walkable.

Course is wide open and it is good for those who like to drive the ball. Four sets of tee boxes. It can get windy up here. The sand bunkers are filled with volcanic grit., because of the wind. However, they are playable. The course has a few forced carries. Course has an interesting layout and it is walkable. Fairways are thin with a number of dead spots in them. Same with the greens. Would play again because it's an interesting layout. It's a fun course as it dares you to go for it. Would play again. A bit pricey for its conditions. For after golf amenities it's hard to beat Johnny's Restaurant which has both good drinks and food.

This course needs TLC so bad!

Poor fairways and poor greens. That’s all you get at this course. Not worth the money. Really I have no idea how they got their good ratings.

It's golf in Hawaii so how bad can it be.....but

It's golf in Hawaii so why am I complaining? Well...I got a hot deal on golf now for $90 so we bought it. Then at the check in counter they said we shouldn't have gotten that deal because that's for residents...but they let it go. Well...to be honest I think I got robbed at that price. The fairways were awful. The grass was diseased or something. You could hit a beautiful shot right down the center and chances are you're still playing off of dirt or diseased fairway. Greens and tee boxes were okay and not a problem. The majority of the sand traps were not sand at all but large pebbles. Yes...like rock pebbles. You'd think of all places that you'd have no problem getting plenty of sand for your traps....Hawaii would be iit. Bottom line....if you're on vacation, pay the extra $100-$150 dollars and play Mauna Kea. You won't regret it. You did'n't come to Hawaii to play an overpriced municipal course. I'm sure this place has seen better days and for their sake I hope it won't be long before they turn it back around and make it an enjoyable place for those who aren't paying the resident fee.

Poor conditions

I’ve played this course before and it was enjoyable. This time, the course hadn’t been watered for a month per an employee, so the fairways and greens were pretty brown which was frustrating since I’d paid in advance and wasn’t able to get a refund. I know things are tough with the pandemic, however paying regular rates with the course conditions are they were, didn’t sit well with me.
