Smoke rising from Mauna Loa in the background

Loved seeing a bit of Mauna Loa erupting in the background. I paid for my wife to ride and the time she had and the company she provided made my day. Weather was perfect and staff was nice.

Course layout great - Robert Jones Jr design. Course conditions were slightly below expectations. Pace of play very slow with several 5-somes on a Wednesday! No amenities on course.

Very reasonable

Greens are in great shape but some of the fairways and rough have damage from the nenes. Nice layout.
Course can and did play extremely slow with a group a few holes ahead having 2 open holes in front of them and no marshals. Still if you can get a good price its one to play.

Slow play

Typical public course
They don't care about pace of play just give us our money and hack away
Back nine was faster
Cheaper than other courses but was priced closer to its playability
