Rude staff, cool course

The exec course is pretty fun; lots of variety.

Staff ruined the experience. I called weeks ahead and asked if military members who live in Hawaii can get the Hawaii rate, and was told definitely. I went on memorial day and the guy told me they weren't anymore. I politely said thank you and to have a great day and the guy silently ignored me and gave a rude look.

Then on hole 6, they turned the sprinklers on the tee box and I got soaked and my bag and phone got soaked. Then on hole 12 they told me to hurry off the green so they could turn those on as well. Then I left my rangefinder on a tee box and went back literally 90 seconds later and some greens keeper had taken it. He gave it back later.

Otherwise a really great par 3 course, but the staff treat you like an inconvenience. Which is weird bc it's business based on recreation.

First Timers

First time booking the course. Paid $20 online in advance and booked under “Hawaii Kai executive”. Did not realize that I booked the Par 3, as it did not say anywhere online. Ended up losing the deposit and played the long course. A bit disappointing so watch what you book!

First time playing. Booked online with GolfNow and paid $20 in advance. Didn’t realize it was actually the Par 3 course. Ended up playing the long course and had to fork out an extra $53. Watch what you book I guess, but nowhere in the reservation did it mention the Par 3.

Hawaii Kai Executive is just the right amount of challenging

This course plays up and down a steep hill which makes it fun, interesting and,being Hawaii, gives beautiful scenic views. As part of a larger course course it is well thought out, well mainatianed and challenging. And just plain fun. A classy brief afternoon experience.

Condition was sooooo bad

Although we originally booked the executive course we ended up playing the main course. It has a ton of potential because the layout and views are great. Lots of elevation change and so strategic holes. But the conditional was soooooo bad. Andulating tee boxes, crab grass fairways, diseased and furry greens and overgrown everything. It is a shame because it could be awesome.
