Nice scenery, especially if you spend a lot of time looking for your ball.

First, I am a lousy golfer. The scenery is fantastic at the Pali Golf Course. Staff is friendly and efficient. Fairways could be better, but hey, it's a municipal course... read more

This municiple public golf course is nestled at the base of the Pali Highway on the Windward side of the island of Oahu. What a difference from the overgrown jungle vegetation of the near by courses in this area of Koolau and Royal Hawaiian. Since this course is a municiple course, you will need to have a Hawaii Golf card... More

Yes it's owned by the city of Honolulu despite being on the eastern side of the Ko'olau range. Yes, it's a golf course as there are tees and holes. Yes, they have a scorecard. But that is about all the yeses I can muster for this place. Certainly the number of rounds played here each year must be off the... More

Played 9 holes here and was entirely unimpressed. It's a much cheaper option that many of the courses on the islands, but there's a reason. If you want a quick, cheap round, go here. If you're looking for a nice course to play on Hawaii. Skip it. This isn't it.

First, I am a lousy golfer. The scenery is fantastic at the Pali Golf Course. Staff is friendly and efficient. Fairways could be better, but hey, it's a municipal course. Greens are average. If you're used to playing immaculate private courses, then this might not be for you. But, for everyone else, I think it's pretty good.

Cheap for locals to walk and play.. good exercise.. good staff.. good food in clubhouse.. its a muni but you get what you pay for.. nice layout.. great for locals and not as wet as Ko'olau at 1/4 the price.

If you're expecting manicured fairways and beautiful tee boxes, this is not the course for you. However, the greens are in great shape and the course layout is interesting with spectacular views of the Koolau mountains. At 6500 yards, it requires you to be fairly long off the tees. The fairways are forgiving and wide - go to Koolau golf... More

The views are second to none in this price range. The course itself is not as spectacular. There are no discernible fairways and the bunkers are best played with your putter (as told to me by a local). As a Midwest golfer I struggled around the green here with the little to know grass sprouting out of the clay. It's... More

Beautiful golf course but staff was GROUCHY and not friendly! Very disappointing!!! Rates were GREAT/ VERY LOW included cart.. but Marshal and others were difficulty to even get to SMILE. They seemed only to want to harass. Would NOT go back.. Golf should be enjoyable not hostile environment!
