Simply beautiful!

Wonderful layout, beautiful scenery and 18 different holes - all memorable.

Easier at least for me than the North Course.

Fairways, greens are in pristine condition. Doesn’t hurt when you play well and get to see humpback whales playing off the shore.

What a way to wreck a place

If you love time share selling practices, this is your place
Troop is know for squeezing everything out of you and let the service fail
Club house restaurant closed for “rethinking “
If you want to rethink, dump Troon like others have
If you go there , great course. But bent over and think of Christmas

Great course if you don’t get behind a 6-some.

Course layout is spectacular but after 4 hole came up on at least 2 groups in front of us waiting at every tee. On a couple hole there was a third group in front of us at the tee as well and it had 6 player. It is ridicules to pay $235 for a round and have them let a group of 6 go out in front of us. Tried to buy a sandwich from the cart since there is no snack bar at the turn didn’t see her for at least 2 hours then when she did show up only had a vegetarian sandwich. If you want to play a great course and don’t mind waiting 20 minutes plus at every hole this is the place for you.

Unforgettable

If get a chance to play this course do it. The holes on the water are incredible. The course plays fair. So much fun to snap a few photos along the way. Great time. Only criticism is that there is no 19th hole. It would have been awesome to debrief the round over a drink and a bite. Pricey but worth it.

Expensive but nice

Very nice course, the 15 th. Hole did not disappoint as far as pictures is concerned! Very nice par 3. Other holes was beautiful for pictures. Love the design of course. It was challenging and fun. A little overpriced to me.

mauna lani wik wiki actually for Keiki’s

Don’t be fooled into a round on this so called course. It’s not a “quick” 3 par track. It is 100% a kids or beginner setup. At 39.00 for the 9 holes it is a serious ripoff to adults that play a little. For kids up to age 10-11 i’d recommend it but that’s it. The course is glorified mowing of old driving range and a fairway and that’s it.
An adult 15-30 hdcp won’t pull out anything beyond a PW and the putter. save the 39.00 per player and use the range!

The other great course in big island

This was my second best course in the big island to the south course. Even though the scenery was not as beautiful as the south course, the layout was more challenging and fun. The course is just as well taken care as the south. I played in Mauna Kea too but the courses in Mauna Lani are much better kept and not crowded.

The most beautiful course I ever played.

This course should be in your golf bucket list. If you stay and play there, you will notice the grounds keepers start working early in the morning. And there are more grounds keepers than players! That alone will tell you how well this place is being kept. Spotless, meticulous and absolutely gorgeous! And if you can, stay in one of their resort because you won't be disappointed.

Outstanding Course

My brother in law and I were staying on the 8th fairway and we decided to play one more round that week. It was a little more money than we expected but was well worth it. I have played a number of courses all over the world and this is in my top 5 . Loved the layout, had our cheering section on the balcony of our residence as we played the 8th hole. The greens putted true and the scenery was outstanding. The only critique i might have is that there could have been better and more sand in the traps. Otherwise it was a really enjoyable experience. Didnt hurt that I shot a 79 . 5 stars for sure.

Great Course and great staff

Spent 3 weeks on the Big Island and had several great experiences on both Mauna Lani golf courses. The South course gets all the attention because of several ocean holes but the North is a real hidden gem. The layout is tighter, most holes are tree lined with some nice undulations. A nice mixture of Par 4s and Par 3s with a couple of Ocean holes. The course condition was outstanding, the outside staff and in shop staff were very friendly and helpful. Our experience at Mauna Lani was better than my experience at my private club in Arizona. I encourage you to visit the Mauna Lani Golf Resort and experience the wonderful staff, great course conditions and the hidden gem, North course.

Perfect Hawaii conditions

This was my 3rd time playing this course and it never gets old. One of my favorites in all the Hawaii islands. I can't recommend this course higher.

Wonderful

This is such a great course. A must play in Hawaii. Several ocean holes and a par three (we both birdied!) that definitely rivals Mauna Kea's famous par three across the ocean. Staff was super friendly and the course was in great shape. Can't wait to come back!

Experience of a lifetime

As an avid average below golfer it was a fun and challenging course. I am a straight shooter. Someone with a draw or fade might find lava and no ball. Holes are different features. For not knowing course I handled well

playing on carpeting

Course conditions were perfect, like carpeting. Staff was a little dry but helpful. They lacked the enthusiasm you would expect for a high dollar course. Oceanside holes were spectacular. No push from anyone behind us. Perfect pace to match perfect conditions. So nice!
