Owner description: The Top Golf Experience on Kauai; Our 27-hole Golf Facility was designed by Mr. Robert Trent Jones Jr.-in the late 1960s. We recently went through an extensive renovation to 18 (Oceans & Lakes Nines) of our 27 holes (Woods Is Still Open But Was Not Renovated). The new 18 was opened in January of 2010 and is now know as the Makai Course. The new and improved championship Makai course is a breath taking par-72 at over 7,200 yards. We proudly boast some of the most epic ocean/mountain views Hawaii golf has to offer.

“Best views in Hawaii”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 31, 2013

Makai Golf Course is a RTJ the second is a good test of golf. The "resort style" treatment of players adds to the joy of your experience. The views go get from the front nine around the sixth and seventh holes are unsurpassed in all of Hawaii.

“WOW, beautiful views and challenging holes!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 30, 2013

We've played the Prince but since the Makai was redesigned this is our new favorite. Less expensive but for us equally challenging and equally - maybe even more - spectacular views. Clubhouse has some lunch items; for a great variety go to the Princeville shopping Center just 2 minutes from there. Several restaurants and food bars plus a nice bakery.

“Beautiful Holes”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 17, 2013

This course has some of the most pretty golf holes in the world. They are challenging, but fair for the average golfer. The staff here does a nice job of making you feel wlecome. The couse was also in good shape. Look at the website for deals on specific tee times.

“Golf @ the Makai Golf Course”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 27, 2012

Very pretty views and this course was quite a lot easier to play than the Prince Course. The staff was very friendly & helpful. The cost was comparable (85.00 for 9 holes, which included the cart)
