Beautiful course

We had a wonderful day at Hapuna. The course was in great shape with beautiful fairways and very nice greens. The greens are fast and in excellent condition which is the way we like them. Some had trouble with them but I thought they were difficult but fair. Would like to play again.

Worth playing

Greens were good. Fairways / rough could use some care and more water. Things seemed very dry, although might be drought related.
Sand traps fair.

Very nice course!!!

Be ready for some great greens, elevation changes, blind shots and great views. Greens were very smooth and rolled very easy. Grounds keeper said they roll the greens three times a week and cut every day. Elevation changes make you consider almost every shot. Was windy so also had to adjust clubs for that. Best course I played while in Hawaii. An ice cold towel to refresh at the end of the round was a great touch and welcome as the day was warm.

Very Nice Course, Slow Play

My wife and I played and encountered the course was constantly backing up and there was a wait time between tee shots. Highly recommend that the course hire a course marshal to keep the pace of play on a timely basis.

Overall very impressed with the course.

Windy but fun

My wife and I were sent off as a twosome but do to slow play ahead we hooked up with the twosome behind us on hole 6 who were beginners and hitting off the wrong set of tees plus always looking for lost balls. They were nice and we enjoyed the round. The goat family greeting us at a few holes was interesting and a good photo op.

Good and challenging

This is a good test of hitting a straight ball. Some fairways require straight shots. Other fairways are wide and forgiving. Due to distances between holes it takes about 4-1/2 hours. Overall good value for Hawaii.
