This course has some challenging and interesting holes. Lots of beautiful trees and plants. I believe the average course conditions reflect the drought they are experiencing and the fact this no longer a private course. That said, the course was not in bad shape, but definitely short of excellent. Plenty of trouble, and some different, but fair, holes. Lots of birds, wild turkeys, and even goats nearby on one hole. I enjoyed playing this course. The people at the course could not be nicer. They had a nice selection of clothes and hats in the pro shop.
Great Views, Perfect Weather
This course is up on the ridge at about 2000 ft, looking down to the west coast of the Big Island. Every hole is different. Due to ongoing dry conditions, the rough especially has many dry spots and therefore bad lies. But the fairways are in good shape and the greens in excellent condition. The staff is especially friendly and helpful. There is a cooler in the pro shop with some beer, sodas and some sandwiches and granola bars, but that's it. So, friendly people, great weather and a well maintained course with imaginative holes. What's not to like?
On vacation, you want to hit your longest drives, approach large greens from everywhere, hole out putts without triple breaks, and do all of this without a house anywhere in sight for miles. Expect to make a birdie or two at this course because it's all right there in front of you, no tricks. The grass was sparse in areas due to summer heat, but, kudos to the course for saving water. I love this place, and you will too.
Hawaii Altitude Golf
Makani plays around 2,500 feet above sea level. The course layout is very enjoyable with the last two holes very challenging (can you say TPC Sawgrass?). The greens are the magnificent part of this golf course.They rolled a little slow, but very nice on our round mostly because of drought conditions and they are a little long. If you're looking for a finely manicured resort course, this isn't it. If you're looking for a fun course to play with good challenges, play here.
Fun Course To Play
For us this was the best course that we played on the big island. The pace was great for us. We didn’t have to wait on any holes for the people in front of us. I was impressed with how many couples played the course the day we played. It was nice to see so many women enjoying golf.
Fun Course to Play
We had a great time playing this course. It was a relax atmosphere a fun course. We took the advice of the Starter and used our best ball on hole 17 it worked to perfection as we made the green on the first shot. So far one of our favorite courses.
