Only complaint: bunkers need work. Recommendation: stay out of binders. Hard pan in most.
Not worth it
For the money, wouldn’t play here again. Decent layout, kind of redundant, only one true oceanside hole and it’s #3. Not one of RTJ jrs best, imo. Greens need replacing, very poor healing after punch several weeks ago. Putting surface looked like a basketball hide. I’d rather go to Makani, loved it! And much less $.
Good course but Mother Nature rules
Wind was brutal on the front nine. Made holes played into the wind extremely difficult. I asked when the best time of day was to avoid the winds. Staff just smiled and said it was up to the gods. Fun course regardless.
To many ridiculous bunkers.
The course has 90 bunkers. As a senior golfer some bunkers you couldn’t physically get out.
If half of bunkers were removed the course would be outstanding.
The staff, starter, driving range. and beverage cart were excellent.
Scenic and challenging
Awesome views, cool ocean breezes and challenging golf, what a great course
very nice scenery
The course was scenic and a challenge to play due to many of the greens are elevated. The greens were bumpy since they were punched a couple weeks ago. I still enjoyed the day.
Great Course. Very fun to play. Awesome views.
The greens had been aerated and sanded a week before. They were still rough. They were mowing the rough and it looked like they were going to bail hay. That is the reasons for the average rating on course conditions. The staff, the resort, overall exceeded expectations.
Greens just renovated, no reduction in rate, still beautiful but of course an extra challenge to negotiate. Bunkers in poor condition, matting evident in most. We received reduced rate but not through the golf pro shop. Certainly not worth full rate at present.
Our lasting impression is the beauty of the course and we’d definitely recommend it.
Old people on a tough resort course
Fun to finally play here and a nice finish to four rounds on the Big Island. A couple of holes were a real challenge on long approach shots faced by us older golfers. Happy to stay under three digit scores for two 78 year old duffers!
