Club rental not recommended

The course was in great shape except for the bunkers, they were wet and packed. They had Callaway clubs, but it was not a matched set. The grips were worn and terrible. Somehow I ended up with a blister on my left hand. I used the same brand of glove I have for years and years and I have never got a blister playing golf. Did give you a bag of six balls but they were the cheap super soft. I would think for what you pay to play here they could at least give you chrome soft (x). I would recommend the course, but do not recommend the club rental

Tough Track

Well maintained course, rough was thick ,lava fields swallowed up a few of my balls. Green aeration affected putting and we had a 3 putt max. Views of ocean, mountains, and nice homes made the day.

Simply beautiful!

Wonderful layout, beautiful scenery and 18 different holes - all memorable.

Easier at least for me than the North Course.

Fairways, greens are in pristine condition. Doesn’t hurt when you play well and get to see humpback whales playing off the shore.

Great course if you don’t get behind a 6-some.

Course layout is spectacular but after 4 hole came up on at least 2 groups in front of us waiting at every tee. On a couple hole there was a third group in front of us at the tee as well and it had 6 player. It is ridicules to pay $235 for a round and have them let a group of 6 go out in front of us. Tried to buy a sandwich from the cart since there is no snack bar at the turn didn’t see her for at least 2 hours then when she did show up only had a vegetarian sandwich. If you want to play a great course and don’t mind waiting 20 minutes plus at every hole this is the place for you.

Unforgettable

If get a chance to play this course do it. The holes on the water are incredible. The course plays fair. So much fun to snap a few photos along the way. Great time. Only criticism is that there is no 19th hole. It would have been awesome to debrief the round over a drink and a bite. Pricey but worth it.

Expensive but nice

Very nice course, the 15 th. Hole did not disappoint as far as pictures is concerned! Very nice par 3. Other holes was beautiful for pictures. Love the design of course. It was challenging and fun. A little overpriced to me.

The most beautiful course I ever played.

This course should be in your golf bucket list. If you stay and play there, you will notice the grounds keepers start working early in the morning. And there are more grounds keepers than players! That alone will tell you how well this place is being kept. Spotless, meticulous and absolutely gorgeous! And if you can, stay in one of their resort because you won't be disappointed.

Perfect Hawaii conditions

This was my 3rd time playing this course and it never gets old. One of my favorites in all the Hawaii islands. I can't recommend this course higher.

Wonderful

This is such a great course. A must play in Hawaii. Several ocean holes and a par three (we both birdied!) that definitely rivals Mauna Kea's famous par three across the ocean. Staff was super friendly and the course was in great shape. Can't wait to come back!

Experience of a lifetime

As an avid average below golfer it was a fun and challenging course. I am a straight shooter. Someone with a draw or fade might find lava and no ball. Holes are different features. For not knowing course I handled well

playing on carpeting

Course conditions were perfect, like carpeting. Staff was a little dry but helpful. They lacked the enthusiasm you would expect for a high dollar course. Oceanside holes were spectacular. No push from anyone behind us. Perfect pace to match perfect conditions. So nice!
