The course layout was interesting and challenging, and there were some picturesque views along the ocean. However, I can only describe most of the course conditions as neglected. Not only did the fairways have large dead brown areas, many of the greens shared the same condition. This was unfortunate as the course has the potential to be rated excellent.

Has potential to be really nice, greens were horrible though. Who ever they have cutting cups is awful there is old cup placements all over the greens and they are really dry and bumpy.

I was staying in Kings Land Waikoloa and decided to play a round of the beach course. The course is relatively easy to play and quite forgiving. A lot of the course is not along the coast but when the gold course does reach the ocean, what a view! The 7th hole probably one of the most famous and memorable... More

Hole #7 by the ocean makes the Waikoloa Beach Golf Course worthwhile. Once, in the winter season, a whale breached right off the coast when I got to the green! This course requires more accuracy to get around the lava fields and to play in windy conditions. In general, the golf course is maintained in good shape.

I love this course! I drive up to Waikoloa from Kona everytime we come to the island just to play here. It is a challenging, beautiful, very enjoyable course. Breathtaking short run by the coast. It is terrific golf, be ready for wind in Waikoloa, but it is a round worth every dollar & stroke!

A little disappointed in the Beach Course. Wasn't in nearly as good shape as the Waikoloa King's Course. Still wonderful.

Robert Trent Jones came through again on this wonderful Waikoloa Beach Resort Course. Very generous fairways with lots of risk reward shots. Wind stayed down making it a perfect morning for golf!

If you are staying at the Hilton, make sure the concierge books the course for you since you will get a nice discounted rate. A nice course with wide fairways so you don't lose too many balls. A few ponds, but it seemed they had quite a few sand traps which I always found. The name "Beach" is a little... More

we played both the Beach and the Kings courses. the fairways are ok, the tee boxes flat, but the bunkers are hard and a lot of fabric showing in them, the greens were pretty spotty with a lot of bad patches like they had a virus. maintenance on the greens and bunkers was not up to par with the cost...

Staying at the Marriot and as the wife had the car, they sent over a much appreciated shuttle to take me to the course. The staff was fast and friendly and the rental clubs were Nike something or others and were fine (though I wouldn't buy them myself). The course itself was in excellent shape with green fairways and fast... More
