“Disappointed”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 6, 2013

First, if you have a choice, play the Makai Course. It's in better condition than the Prince Course. While the greens are good, the fairways are in poor shape. Divots are everywhere. No sand/seed bottles are provided. I was told it was too expensive. As to the course, there is a lot of target golf and blind shots. Also, severe elevation changes on many holes. Thought I hit some great shots off tee only to find ball in rough. If you spray the ball, you will have no fun and lose a lot of balls. To me the course seems to be a little to tricked up. To many lay ups off tee. Takes driver out of your game on many holes. Makai is the more enjoyable course. Play close to a hundred rounds per year and a 6handicap.

“Prince Course”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 26, 2013

This course is amazing. I played in mid-June of 2013 and had an excellent experience. The course is in excellent shape. The service was terrific. The course is very challenging...bring lots of balls. I rented clubs and they offer top quality rentals.

“Great Golf”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 26, 2013

Beautiful course with breathtaking views. Front nine playable, back nine very challenging. Twilight rates are better than early morning play and they begin at 12:30

“Magnificent views on a very difficult course”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 25, 2013

This is an absolutely beautiful course. However, it is very difficult and quite frankly, an "unfair" course. Many pros have played this course and even they would agree that it is beyond tough. If you don't mind paying a lot of money to play and lose a lot of balls, then this is the course for you!
