We played a round of golf with a group of friends. Beautiful course and views are breathtaking. Would definitely play here again and highly recommend it.

Played Mauna Lani for the first time - been on Big Island twice before. Glad I did. Fun layout with spectacular ocean holes and views. Played the South course - really fun...even in 20-25 mph winds! Just a click lower than Mauna Kea in my book...but that is a pretty high bar. Highly recommended.

The South Course seems roughly equivalent to the Beaches Course at the Waikoloa Marriott/Hilton, but much more expensive. The Mauna Lani course condition is slightly better. Both courses have good staff. The Mauna Lani is much less crowded, probably because of the price. There are some great views on several holes. We enjoyed our morning there, but will probably not...

Played the South Course at Mauna Lani. Every hole is picturesque and the course is in very good shape. Hands down the best course I played during my stay and probably top five I have ever played. Loved it.

We stayed at Muana Lani Resort for a week. Loved the location. Nice beach out front, and another a few hundred yards down trail. The room was nice. The hotel halls are outdoors and tiled. The tiles are dirty and broken, and grout is gross in many places. Very 70's feel, And probably not updated since. Not a big deal... More

I have played both courses several times and consistently receive great service and wonderful golf. Will play here every time. Although would much prefer to walk and carry my clubs, the way golf is meant to be played.

came ten years ago, the course is still good, with good view. Though the grounds are not as good as it used to be.

First of all get your tee time from golfnow as you will pay a lot less for fees. Also bring your gps or range finder because they are not supplied. The course is poorly marked save for the 150 yardage. We did see the cart girl several times. There is no starter and we were not told where the washrooms... More

We have played the North Course at Mauna Lani for over twenty years and it seems to keep getting better. This place is in the best condition ever. The tees are pristine as are the fairways and greens. They have a lot of people here to assist you starting out. Cory was a great help at starter and later showed... More

This review is only for the South course as I've never played the North. Course is always in impeccable condition. Very playable as it's a resort course so fun for all types of handicaps. Can sometimes be windy but that's Hawaii for you. The par three 15th may be the best par three in golf.
