As many other reviewers have said...Makena has seen better days. The views are spectacular, but the course is not in a good condition as I have seen in the past. They are trying to get as many players as they can out on the course and on the day we played, it was very disorganized at the start. Compared to the friendliness at the Dunes, this course takes a back seat.
Saying all of this, it was an enjoyable play. Not a beginners' course, but I am a high handicapper and enjoyed it and didn't play too badly.
