Poor condition

Greens were good everything else poor.
Golf carts poor no gps and sprinklers or other yardage markers poor
My fault I suppose, since part of Mauna Kea resort I expected similar conditions, carts and amenities as Mauna Kea.

Hapuna Delivers

Great track! The course offers challenge to all levels of golfers. The greens were in very good shape and were fast in comparison to its neighboring course which are very slow. The course was in good shape and I would happy to play there again many times.

Beautiful course

Unfortunately the winds blew from the East at about 40 mph. Standing upright was an achievement.

Fun golf course

Had a great time with a good rate at Hapuna. I loved the layout and can’t wait to play again as I didn’t always know where I was going. I played as a single and 4 foursomes let me play through so round was less than 3 hours! A definite must if you are staying on Kona side.

Great course!

This is a challenging (but not too challenging) course that has a beautiful layout with beautiful views! I booked this on GolfNow and got the above rate for teeing off at 2:30 and for using GolfNow rewards. They want the carts in by 6, so there's a risk of not being able to finish your round, though we had this tee time twice and were able to finish the round both times. Lots of fun!
