Deteriorating conditions

We played this course in January 2021 , when it was in immaculate condition, and again in late October 2021, when at least 1/3 of the fairways had gone brown. The greens were in a little better condition. There were above ground hoses and small sprinklers place everywhere, making us wonder if the course had an underground sprinkler failure. We would not play here again until conditions improved dramatically,
spending our money instead at the Wiakoloa Village Course, or Hapuna, or Makalei.

Best Value Around

Whether you snag a Hot Deal or not, you will get good value golf at the Waikoloa Village GC. Great staff, beverage cart service and offerings, true greens, and forgiving fairways. Very fair course. My wife and I are going back again in two days and will book more plays here over the next month before returning to the cold and rainy NW. Don't pass this course up!
