“Makena Mntn Course”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 16, 2013

Got a deal on this fabulous course with gorgeous views on golfnow.com. It winds its way up Haleakala. The views are beautiful, course is in great shape and some of the holes are tough but well worth it. Pay attention to uphill and downhill shots and adjust club selection. Uphill ones may fool of you don't add enough stick and on putting too!

“Great course”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 6, 2013 via mobile

Mostly great views, slow greens and a top notch restaurant on site. I would highly recommend this course for its challenges and overall experience!

“Good...if you can get a good price”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 3, 2013

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.

Challenging to play, good price especially with the loaner clubs/shoes if you are staying at the Makena Beach and Golf Resort.
