“Gimmicky overpriced without any magic.”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 29, 2013

What is it with Troon courses. The guys behind the counter are so bitter and unhappy all the time? No exception in Hawaii. What a bunch of sourpusses. Probably as the course is so overpriced and they feel bad ripping off golfers. The locals pay $80 and that is all it is worth but Hawaii loves to squeeze the tourist. The views are great but the course is nothing to write home about. Go to the muni's. They are more fun.

“Yes, bucket list”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 28, 2013 via mobile

Indescribable views. Wide open fairways. Professional and courteous staff. Played 18 in 3-1/2 hours. It's well worth the money, play it if you have the chance. Afterward, you will say it is the best course you have played and you will remember it for a lifetime.

“Golfing doesn't get much better...”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 23, 2013

Great PGA course with great views of the ocean on just about every hole. The wind made it very very difficult. As did the greens (fast and tricky), but overall this course has definitely earned it's #19 in the USA ranking by Golf Digest.

“Good course but not after being sanded.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 17, 2013 via mobile

I've played other courses after they have been sanded but this was altogether different. Each green was like a beach! Felt like an inch of sand. Made putting impossible. Discounted rate but glad we didn't plan on scoring the round.

“Great Difficult Course”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 15, 2013

This was a real test! The greens are like lightning! You know when you watch the PGA and the pros cant keep the ball on the green, and you say wow if they cant then we are sunk, well this happened here on almost every hole!
