Wow

This was our second round of the week and had a blast. The views here can't be beat. Lots of fun holes to challenge you. Greens were quick, but not as fast as we're used to in Las Vegas, so we left a few puts short until we got used to them. If you have to pick the North or South course, this is the one we'd recommend.

Mike's review

Great course! Really windy the day we played, but sunny and warm. Whale & dolphin siting on the holes by the ocean - great views from those holes! Fun course to play!

One of the Best

South Course at Mauna Lani never disappoints! We played in a 20 MPH breeze and followed two foursomes (we were two) and still played in 4 hours. Greens were rolling true and a little on the quick side compared to other courses, which was very nice.
The staff here is one of the best anywhere and always friendly and welcoming.
The pro shop is one of the best as well, with a lot of nice apparel and accessories, for both men and women. They do get “resort prices” for everything so you will pay a bit of a premium for all things (food, drinks, apparel, etc) but great offerings.
This is one of my favorite places to golf…anywhere. The North course is great too, but I think with the great views (ocean, lava, floral) and playability of the course, the South can’t be beat!

Mauna Lani South

I'd put this in the top 3 courses I've ever played, and it might be at the top. I played the blue tees (71.4/125) on a Monday morning under blue skies with just a hint of wind. The pro shop was well stocked and the employees were friendly with lots of advice about the round. While the practice areas were what you'd expect for the price tag, I especially appreciated the employee who waited until I'd hit 20-30 practice chips and cleared all the balls from the practice green once I'd moved on to the first tee - great service!

Simply put, the course is unbelievable. Even though there are maybe "only" 6-7 holes that play at or along the ocean, the course conditions are unrivaled. You'd be hard-pressed to find a piece of grass out of place. The bunkers are perfectly kept, and the greens roll as true as any I've seen. On the whole, the layout is pretty flat and forgiving off the tee - perfect for resort golf. The only real trouble is the lava rock hazards lining the course, which will definitely spell death for your ball if it finds one, but it's so uniquely visually striking it almost doesn't matter.

Holes 6 and 7 and give you brief taste of ocean before heading inland until hole 12, when the course crescendos to the climax at the famous hole 15. It's par 3 requiring a full carry over water - the closest us mere mortals will ever come to playing Cypress Point. Regardless of the set of tees you play, it's worth going to the back tee and taking a picture/hitting a couple shots/wondering if there's a prettier golf hole in the world. The concluding holes play away from the ocean back toward the clubhouse, but they're a satisfying conclusion to an incredible round. Anyone can play here and have a perfect day; from beginning to end, it's an unforgettable experience.

Must Play on Big Island

Truly spectacular setting. Played North Course the day before and this also had amazing views but South course has spectacular holes with amazing views. Generally very playable off the tees although I had a good driving day. Played with my wife who is a good 18 handicap and she loved it and very playable. I truly think this is a must play. Use GOLFNOW. Saved almost $100.00 for the two of us compared to price on the course website. Spent it on some golf shop goodies!

Beautiful course.

An amazing course with beautiful views of the ocean. Greens are tricky to read, fairly quick...a little firm, possibly dried by the extremely high winds today. Combination of manicured fairways and unforgiving lava roughs made for an interesting round. Drivies in the fairway got a lot of extra roll but if you hit the lava, you are toast. Staff was great. Pace of play was good probably because the nasty wind kept people away today.
