A good "muni" course with ocean view

The course is fairly easy even from the tips. Condition is average. Green is slow. Some holes have ocean view which is really nice. With GolfNow hot deal, this is good value. The visitor rack rate is not worth it.

Enjoyed it.

A nice course, very forgiving. The staff was very friendly and the price was a good value relative to other courses on the island. Course conditions could have been better but they weren’t bad.

Big Island Day 1

We stayed at a Waikoloa Village resort and have a view of both the Second Hole and the Third Tee.

Not much discount as a resort guest, $5, but a nice savings on a Hot Deal.

Course had some nice views of the nearby volcanos.

Typical resort style course, with fairway bunkers, and many greens protecting the greens.

Course winds through both resorts and residential neighborhoods.

Small pebbles in the bunkers instead of sand.

Great alternative to the high end resort courses charging much more.

Not worth your time

The course is OK, but the pace of play is NOT monitored and horrible. Even for the golf now reduced price, not a good value at all.

Had a fun day

Nice layout, challenging and fair. Good staff that is helpful and welcoming. Very fair price. Played with Cec who lives near the course and had a fun time. Experienced the “Lahaina Noon” (No visible shadow as the sun was directly above us at 12:19 PM”. Thank you Cecilia!!

Surprise

I was confused by name, and hoped to play down by the ocean. My mistake, but easy to make. Greens were in great condition, just too slow. Fairways were better than most public courses, not country club quality.

Good course, greens are molasses

The course is a good one to have a nice day of golf. Not overly challenging but fun for all levels. The greens are so slow you almost need a driver to make a 10 foot putt. My only issue with the course.

We enjoyed our round

Friendly, helpful staff. Course was in good shape. A forgiving course for the casual golfer. Found a Golf Now special for $98 green fees, which was fair and reasonable I the land of exorbitant resort golf fees. We live locally and will definitely be back as soon as we have our HI drivers license and qualify for local rates.

The greens are very slow and the traps have gravel instead of sand and are inconsistent.
