Great track

Beautiful and challenging golf course with some spectacular views. Course was in excellent condition. Only issue was no restaurant/bar area so eat before you play as there is no food available. You can get a drink from the cart girl.

Nice lava rock lined course

A well maintain course. The pace of play was better than average, about 4hr15min. We enjoyed very much the different course setting with plenty of lava rocks. There are a few holes with ocean views but otherwise an inland course. Overall a very nice experience.

The greens on the slow side as compared to our regular course’s. Many fairways are wide open but a few are a bit challenging with either narrow or trees- splitting fairways.

The price is pretty stiff, over value, probably carried over from the more famous South Course. If you have time and don’t mind spending extra, it would be a good experience.

Screw the last guys review! This place is great!

If you are super golf snob and came to hawaii to play serious golf than this course is more of a fun little warm up. Go to Mauna Kea and spend $250+ to play on a serene and challenging course. If you want to have fun with your kids and you don’t take yourself or golf too seriously than it’s well worth the money. My son and I played a 4:30 tee time we were the only ones on the course and just had a the best time bonding and working on our game. Your in hawaii abs there are ocean views. The staff is amazing and friendly. Super laid back yet professional. This course should have more good reviews to it detour people to have sone fun. It will now be the first course I play with my son before we take on a more challenging course like Mauna Kea and I wish had done things in that order this time. Remember it’s about having fun,
