It's pretty but not breathtaking. The terrain is kind of flat - my wife and I both thought it looked like Florida, except for the lava. Greens were quite sandy - recent top dressing I assume. We liked the Kings course more than the Beach course. Hapuna and Mauna Kea were both more challenging and visually appealing. I certainly wouldn't... More

Greens were better than the last 10 years but still the course is poor quality in comparison to others. Kings is better so play there if you have the choice. If you want the Ocean experience than Mauna Lani South Corse has it in spades over this one.

I like everything about the course. A beautiful and challenging course.The staff was courteous and the driving range was included in the green fee. I suggest that teeing off after 10 30 AM will save you a lot of money.

My family played the beach course and the course was in good condition. I expected to pay high greens fees but I also expected the service that went along with those high fees. We had an afternoon tee time. We saw the beverage cart on hole 1 and didn't need anything at the time. There were four bottles of water... More

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
