Good golf - don’t expect a view

Want golf in Hawaii to feel among nature. Ideally ocean views. Or, a round amongst the trees and hills. Ko Olina is set amongst homes in a resort community. While a pretty course it is not the experience I would prefer in Hawaii.

The course itself is challenging. The many two tiered make approach shots and chips important. Water is not really a problem except for 2 holes

One bummer is the range. They have mats for warmup. Would expect a grass range at a top course

Nice course

Great course for those looking to play where the pros play. Course’s biggest defense are the greens which are almost all elevated and have undulations. Driving range is nice and food is generally priced as any resort would be.

Greens were recently aerated, which was the only detractor from this course. Service is amazing, course is beautiful. Great course to play.

Great greens, great staff

I enjoyed this course despite playing poorly. The pace of play was slow compared to Turtle Bay yesterday where I was able to play by myself after my partner dropped when it rained.

The course at Ko Olina was in excellent shape and the greens were outstanding. Smooth and fast. Excellent staff, very aloha. Apparently the range is mats twice a week and that's what I got but the range is well marked and there is a nice putting green.
