Had high expectations after watching Sony Open last few years on TV.
$350 with required caddy,
Walked from parking lot with small bag. No access to locker room allowed. No showers available after round. Walked back to car to leave bag and walk back. Hhmm. Interesting start.
Driving range? Mats. Putting green? Small and busy. Like a typical public muni? Sort of.
Caddy good but, had to cover 3 of us. Basically just scoped distances which my watch did equally well. Good guy, just hard to split across 3 guys in different carts.
Divots on fairways not filled. Ball marks on greens. Bunkers played well. Rain of a few weeks ago maybe stressed general condition of grass and grounds?
After the round no access to bar, dining room or any place to sit and add up cards with playing partners. “Sorry” offered from staff. Was encouraged to order a beer at snack shack which had only a few chairs all in bright sun, no umbrellas. Hhhmm. Interesting end.
Long winded conclusion? Visitors from other private clubs welcome? Maybe not. Ko Olina, Ewa, Waikele all better all much much less. In my humble opinion.
A Challenging Classic
A private club but open to guests at a sister hotel on Waikiki. Service and facilities were very good and the course condition was excellent. The real story is the way a really good architect [Seth Raynor] was able to make a thoroughly undistinguished plot of land into a reasonable test of golf.
