Nice course, unfortunately with just aerated greens

We are on vacation and tried this course as it is near where we are staying. The positives. Nice course with lots of variety in hole layouts. Decent rental clubs sets. Virtually empty. We played our round in under 3 1/2 hours. Never waited on a shot. The negatives. We found out when we checked in at the pro shop that the greens were aerated YESTERDAY. While this MAY have been displayed on the Golf Now site it was not obvious as I did not see it. I was sensitive to this as the course we had planned to play was just aerated this week so we chose to change plans to Hapuna. Needless to say, lots of 3 putts. Golf club rental at Hapuna is usurious at $135 for 2 sets. I know it is a pain, but if you come to Hawaii and plan to golf more than 3 times, bring your own clubs! Finally, after all the 3 putts, the bar was closed (appears permanent as the furniture was gone). I sure could have used a gin and tonic.

Nice course

Really enjoyed the round. Course was in great shape. Greens were immaculate. Play only slowed the last 4 holes - which I hear is typical. Look for great rates on golf now.

Hapuna golf course

We had a great time playing at Hapuna Golf Course. We moved along well and found the course to be in nice shape. Little narrow little short from the regular tees but very fun afternoon.

Spectacular Course

This is a great course. It wiggles it’s way up and down the lava flow with spectacular vistas a some difficult blind dog legs. The course is in great condition. The Bermuda rough is just that- thick and spongey. Greens are nothing short of perfection with minimal blemishes. Like it’s step-sister? Cousin maybe? Mauna Lani, it’s worth playing.
I did encounter some slow play, a very slow foursome. They let several parties play through at the turn and the universe was again the way it should be! It was a great outing!

Beautiful course

Couldn’t use discount coupon because it was booked through GolfNow. Nobody’s fault but Mine for not knowing. Greens were punched in April and still rolling a bit rough.

It can be challenging

Course can be narrow without some course knowledge but great views and there's a beer cart!

Sanded greens

Greens were sanded the day before we played. Didn’t know it when we showed up at about 10am. Turns out the sent a email a 8am offering to help me cancel the reservation. Didn’t notice it until that evening.

Can’t imagine how fast the geens would have been without the sand. Additional benefit is we almost had the course to ourselves. Had a food time. Views were great.

Excellent greens

One of the best course conditions I’ve ever played. Fairways and greens were perfect. Course is a little tricky due to blind shots but it was still great
