Club rental not recommended

The course was in great shape except for the bunkers, they were wet and packed. They had Callaway clubs, but it was not a matched set. The grips were worn and terrible. Somehow I ended up with a blister on my left hand. I used the same brand of glove I have for years and years and I have never got a blister playing golf. Did give you a bag of six balls but they were the cheap super soft. I would think for what you pay to play here they could at least give you chrome soft (x). I would recommend the course, but do not recommend the club rental

Out of bounds * 2 for GolfNow

LET ME START BY SAYING A BIG THANK YOU TO THE STAFF AT MAUNA LANI. FOR FIXING THE ERRORS OF GOLFNOW

Very frustrated with GolfNow, I booked Hapuna Golf course for today. last Friday the course staff contacted me to say that GolfNow didn’t alert users that they had aerated the course and they highly encouraged me to rebook elsewhere as the greens were still not good. When I did this GolfNow refused to reimburse me and instead sent me 10+ $20 coupons to be used next time I book some golf, covering the cost of the booking.

I then booked MAUNA LANI North Course - when I arrived there today I was told the North Course was aerated and the greens were not in good condition. Again the golf course was explaining to me what GolfNow didn’t.

Thankfully the staff were able to find a slot on the South Course for my son and I. Really enjoyable round but very frustrated with GolfNow

Tough Track

Well maintained course, rough was thick ,lava fields swallowed up a few of my balls. Green aeration affected putting and we had a 3 putt max. Views of ocean, mountains, and nice homes made the day.

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!
