Great round of golf as expected

Mauna Kea is one of the must play resort courses on the BI. Not that any of the courses are unworthy. From arrival, check in and post round, service was top notch. The course wasn't busy after Thanksgiving, so we never felt pushed or needed to wait. Signature hole #3, is always a photo op.

No Brainer at $110

If you’re lucky you can snag a night before $110 hot deal. As a 13 handicap shot an 87 and was thrilled. Very challenging course that has strategic bunkers and holes where you’re better off laying up. Lots of elevation changes and do your best to stay out the rough obviously. Club rental was $60 and you get Taylor Made sim2 irons and two sleeves of TM balls. Practice facility and balls included. Loved the experience and remember the next shot is the most important.

Wonderful Kona Coast golf course

No wind, so course played easier than when the trades are blowing. Greens still accepted many threes and a four putt. Probably the player's abilities played a part.
