Great course with some nice views

Like all of us, it’s been a few years since I was on the Big Island. I knew I wanted to play Kona Country club and getting a time wasn’t a problem. Staff at check in were friendly and accommodating. There is a grass range and it’s ok. Range balls are mainly “lost balls” probably from the course. $ 10 for the basket is a bit rich. Overall course conditions were nice. Fairways are wide and generous. Some of the greens were slow others medium speed. I guess weather dictates how low they can cut and roll them ? 85 degrees every day so guess you have to be careful. There are 2 or 3 holes on each 9 that play alongside the water and have spectacular views. Per other reviews, they allow single players so pace can be slow. Pace was better than when I last played there in 2019. If you are staying in Kona it’s worth playing and I can’t wait to go back next year.

Stunning ocean holes!

My buddy and I tried to course in Sunday at 12:20. The course wasn't super busy due to the heat but it was not bad at all. The carts have a built in range finder and show hole placement. The course was beautiful and I would highly recommend.

Fairways are good greens are very good almost pertfect

Best buy for golf in Kona. The play is very slow, Single players are sent out, which creates slow play.
NO ON-COURSE RANGER TO MONITOR PACE OF PLAY.

Overall amazing

A few fairways need some love. They look like they got fertilizer burned. But other than that I’d play it everyday!

Very Slow Pace of Play

The play was very slow, we finish in over 5 hrs. No ranger on course to move the slow players.
Greens and fairways are very good. The tee areas are not very good. Driving range poor grass hitting areas.

An absolute gem

This course was fantastic from start to finish. First, patiently I waited for a hot deal to come out and the price to drop. Usually, the round costs $180 per person, but the hot deal dropped it down to $69 on the day of play. From that moment forward, the course was fantastic. The views are outstanding. The course condition was perfect and pace of play was about 3:45 for my 11-year-old son and I. Another huge plus, the staff was so welcoming especially to my junior son. I highly recommend Kona Country Club if you are playing on the Big Island.

Great Time despite the Spider

I have played this course other times and the greens were extremely fast. Today they were just perfect. The pin placements seemed a bit easier for me. Just had a great time, pace of play was great, weather comfortable, breezy. Screamed like a girl when a Huge Spider was crawling up my shirt after I went looking for some lost balls in the brush.

Beautiful oceanside holes

Course has generous fairways, but with ample bunkering to penalize wayward shots. Many picturesque holes along the water. Greens were very slow the day we played, but may have been due to recent rain.

Very nice course

The clubs we rented had seen better days and some of the T boxes for ladies were in awkward spots but on the whole a very nice course with spectacular ocean views.
