What can i say apart from this is an expensive experience and not really grate value for money. The course itself is well laid out however it's not in the best nick and the greens are well slightly patchwork style. For what you pay in green fee's i expected better to be honest. The rental clubs are Nike and appear... More

Have played this course 4 times during our stay, course is in wonderful shape and features fast greens. I don't understand the negative reviews I'm seeing.... I would recommend this course to anyone. As with all golf courses there are discounted rates available if you're accustomed to seeking them out. PS....the dreaded "Waiko-BLOWA" wind was only prevalent one day.....we still... More

If your expecting a great golf experience for your $110+ greens fee, forget it. The course is in horrible shape. The fairways have numerous bare sports as do the greens. The bunkers have little or no sand in them. If you want a good Pro Shop, go there by all means. Good cloths and not all that expensive, for Hawaii.... More

Free shuttle from hotel to golf resort, golf cart and free water bottles included in green fee, friendly staff, very good driving range, beautiful golf course, long distances to and between holes, strong winds make the course difficult to judge distances. But overall, very enjoyable experience.

Decent rate of $125 if you stay at a resort and play after 11:30 AM. Do look for promos to get free club rentals. There are three sets of tee boxes with the seniors and ladies tees together. Course winds through condos and various lava formations. Some holes require crossing water and there is a hole that plays along the... More

To play here you must have the Golf Hawaii card or be staying in a villa that has an original gold membership. The rack rate of $140+tax is nonsense for course like this, although in Palm Desert they wouldn't be much cheaper. At $85 it is easier to swallow. The restaurant serves a good burger and beer selection. The Beach... More

Great pro shop, beyond that not in the class of other courses that charge $150 a round., that's if you don't look for the online promo that includes clubs. Otherwise there is a $55.00 per person club rental on top of the round. No gps in carts,no balls, bag tag, tees. One ocean view hole, others in and out of... More

Challenging from beginners, but what course isn't? Course is in good shape. Great staff. Pricey unless you are staying at a Hilton property and can get a discount.

Nice views, especially when you got nearer the water. We tried it since it was close to our property. Gave a good rate to guest.

Fun course but didn't like all the grass clippings left in the rough. It was very deep, a couple times couldn't find our ball. Great Pro Shop, lots of shopping.
