Jungle Golf

Royal Hawaiian was a beautiful course. The par three's were all amazing. Fairways are generous, but, if you are off the fairway or off the green much you will lose your ball. It is thick jungle and balls just disappear. The greens were crazy slow so that was disappointing but it is on the rainy side of the island so everything is very wet. Carts cannot go off the path because of this and walking is out of the question because of the length between some holes. I'd recommend the course just for the beauty of it.

Normally great

With 3 nines why did I get placed behind a wedding party of over 30 partiers. What is usually a great game and course became a process of avoiding drunks. A great course I will play again I am sure this situation will not repeat. I strongly recommend this course.

Always excellent

Not only were the greens excellent, cart girl, clubhouse and pace of play was great…………. As always.
Make sure to hit em high with the wind and stingers into it. Course plays to the ponds with some balls actually “bouncing” towards the hazards! Great challenge.

Fun course

This was a fun golf course. I was paired with another good player. We both played well and had a challenging round. The layout is great. The greens were in great condition. They offer good practice areas. I recommend playing this course.

Ok course

Honestly not sure why this gets such a high rating? Three nines and you don’t get to choose? AB is by far the best choice. Decent shape fair layout, had a good partner. Pace of play is just horrindous, really makes it un enjoyable. 5:25 is simply not acceptable.
4 minutes from my house to bad it isn’t a rock star course…
