Plugged

Greens were terribly slow due to plugging last week. Pace was ok but slowed on back 9 for a 4 hour round.

Great value for the money

Best scenic experience I have ever had on a golf course and I have played many including Pebble Beach. Fantastic holes right on the coast line with beautiful palm tries framing both sides of the fairways. My only complaint was the fairways were not constantly lush everywhere because it appeared watering was inconsistent.

GO ELSEWHERE - Sadly Lacking in Aloha Spirit

I booked a time for my wife and I to play via GolfNow. Everything was great until we got to the course for the 2:45pm time, at which point, we were informed that golf carts had to be back by 5:15pm. (Sunset is around 7:15pm, so clearly, this policy is just aimed at getting the staff home from work without any real regard for golfers)
Additionally, the manager would not allow our kids to ride with us without a rider surcharge. I get that part, but in light of the unfriendly cart policy, charging me full price for what was essentially 9 holes, then charging me to bring my kids on top of that - I ended up paying about $200 for nine holes. The staff - all of them, to a person - ZERO ALOHA. Zero friendliness. Zero helpfulness. Zero concern or consideration for the customer. Really sad because I love playing the actual golf course. But wow. Shockingly bad customer service and not the kind of aloha people expect on the Big Island.
Take your Big Island golf business elsewhere!!

Fun at Kona Country Club

As a newer golfer I like that the fairways were wide and the holes were pretty straight forward in design. The course was in great condition and the carts have interactive GPS screens. Beautiful views of the ocean!

Great Ocean Course

Highly recommend this course. Have played here every time I come to the Big Island. Personally, I think it’s the best course on the island especially if you want to play next to the ocean.
