Pace

5hr30min to finish 18 holes. The parties ahead were slow incredibly slow. No Marshall regulated, and when we tried to play ahead, the parties got mad. Beautiful place and good condition, horrible pace.

Overall okay experience

Thee course was in pretty good condition, bunkers maintained, yardage markers were spot on, greens were The only complaint I have is the pace of play. The whole round was hit one shot, wait 5 minutes. If the club would space the tee times out a little more, maybe 10-12 minutes between spots, it would eliminate the hold up. At one point we had 3 4-somes on the same hole.

Great course at a great price

Royal Kunia golf course is one of my favorite courses. The entire staff is very professional and always very accommodating. The weather yesterday was beautiful and the pace of play was great.

Beautiful Views

The greens were sandy and it was difficult for anyone in our foursome to read them well. We all putted below average and could not get dialed in. The course is in good shape and is fun to play with spectacular views from nearly every hole. Moderate difficulty. Clubhouse and pro shop are not Country Club caliber. We payed $65 each with a cart and that was fine. I would not play here if I had to pay $120 or more which is the sticker price. More of a nice muni than a Golf Club or Country Club.

This is a fun course with a great layout. Overall is pretty open and you can really go for it on some of the holes. My only BIG complaint was that we got kicked off the course with at least 45 min of sunlight left and were told the 14th hole was our last. We knew that we were one of the later tee times but we could have come close to finishing.

Great views, good staff, not acceptable green conditions for price

A really solid layout, with great views, tons of bunkering all let down by greens that shouldn’t be attached to a course at this price or location. This may be a seasonal thing for Oahu and mid April being the most difficult green maintenance...I don’t believe so as the rest of the green areas on the course were better maintained. For non-residents, this would be a tough price to pay for this quality.

DIFFICULT WHEN WINDY

The course layout is fantastic. As this was the first time that I played this course, I was lucky to have been put with two local guys who could tell me where I should play my shots. The wind that day was gusting and this course has just enough water to make you think about almost every shot; excellent grass and the greens run true.

More than I expected

The club house isn’t much, 2 friendly attendants assisted me getting checked in with my TeeOff confirmation. The starter had a bucket of balls waiting for me in a cart as I left the club house. Driving range and practice green as small but in great shape and wasn’t crowded at all. It’s a little confusing to get to the first tee. The course is well kept. A perfect mix of challenge and fun. For most of the round pace was great 3 groups got bunched up and a hard par 4 which then kind of haulted the pace for a little while. The views are amazing and the course is fantastic. If I make my way back to Oahu I’ll be sure to play Royal Kunia again.

Not a bad golf course. Everything else was sub-par.

The employee in the restaurant was super nice and helpful. The club house was practically a double wide trailer.
No marshal with slow play and the carts are really really old. No drink cart. Don't put up the wind shield. Can not see through it.

This is a great course. Condition is very good. Staff great. Pace of play a bit slow though. The views of Pear Harbor Diamond Head and Waikiki are second to none!

My first trip to Royal Kunia CC

Well we showed up early for our tee time 2:12 or so and they let us tee off early, but also told us we need to head in by 6:15 so I thought something was up, played played the first two holes seemingly OK no waiting, however from there on we waited on every hole every Teebox every fairway wait till we finished, I noticed not many people fix their ball marks on the green, Which were all very challenging., It was a beautiful course not very well picked up but all in all I liked it I doubt I’ll be back though.
