Played both the kings and the beach courses and as resort courses in pretty good condition considering the amount of traffic they get. The greens are true. Some bunkers are better than others which is true of the fairways as well. Overall nicely laid out with some great views, the staff are friendly and helpful but can't say that they're... More

Really surprised at condition of the fairways, greens and bunkers. Not a bad layout but grass was growing in the bunkers and bare patches on a lot of the fairways and greens. Wouldn't play there again with all the other choices on the Island considering the cost and the much better conditions of these other options.

We purchased a three round package for this and the Kings course that bought the price to about $90 dollars a person, we ended up golfing this course twice. The practice area and driving range are good areas to shake off the cobb webs from your flight and is well maintained. The start of the courses is very well controlled... More

I've been playing here since the 1990s and this course is still fun, though the fairways are starting to show their age. There is a lot of good golf course maintenance, the greens appear to have been aerated about a month ago, leaving some slowing lines and sand. Our pro shop experience was enhanced by Jamie who was pleasant and... More

Everyone one at the golf course was very friendly from the cashier at the pro shop to the starter to the greens keepers. Would definitely recommend this course as it is very nice, somewhat challenging, and offers amazing views of the ocean and lava rock formations.

The price is high but this is Hawaii! I liked the fact that while you warmed up, the starter would let you know when it was time to go to the tee blocks. So you didn't have to waste time waiting and could continue practicing, nice feature. Also, there are some stunning views along the back nine. You get range... More

Just played this course, it is run down and feels tired. Maintenance is not great and due to bad business they have closed a clubhouse, merged some holes from another , now closed course, etc. The starting holes are not the starting holes as originally planned by Trent Jones, Jr. Teeing off on Hole 1 over a big lake is...

This is a pretty deceit layout. The greens are good and the fairways are fair. There are a couple of dumb holes but most every golf course has those. The maintenance is very good. As for a layout I believe the Big Island Country Club is better.

I recently play a round on the Beach Course while staying in the Waikoloa area. This course is "hands down" much more scenic and challenging than the King's Course (which I also played). The layout wraps around the resorts and condos, but it is nicely tucked into the real estate and has many scenic holes. There is only one hole... More

Only had enough time to play 9 holes and they offered a rate on their beautiful course. Had a great time!
