The golf course is pretty good, quite hard to find way around the course, and some of the holes you t-off towards players coming towards you. You have to work it out for yourself as the staff do not help at all. They are very rude and act as if they don't want people (tourists) playing there. They gladly take... More

We went early in the day due to the heat. It cost $45NZ for club hire. The clubs were a mixed bag, not all clubs were available, didn't bother us as we are definitely not pros. No cart is available. There are a few obstacles but all made for great entertainment. We only did 9holes (2.5ks) approx. had a few... More

Possible one of the most picturesque, quirky golf courses I've ever played. Zigzagging holes and greens. The service wasn't the best which was a shame because what they have here is amazing.

I decided to play a round of golf on my last day on Rarotonga. The "clubhouse" looks more like a sports bar with a pool table and the people there seemed surprised that anyone showed up at all, but the package deal including clubs and balls was fantastic, and even though the course itself was not in the very best...

Played 9 holes here with a few mates. Not many sets of clubs available to hire but shared a set between a few of us. Flat course, open to wind which we experienced. Very confusing layout, the right tee hard to find. Shared fairways for a number of holes so had to watch out for balls from ahead and from... More

Small but challenging, especially when it comes to finding the next tee! Get an early start as there aren't many hireable clubs. Only nine holes, watch out for the high towers and guide lines, enjoy!

Well, this was my first round of golf and it was fine. It was very enjoyable as I went with locals. I would have felt and actually would have been completely lost otherwise. It seemed such a different thing to do there. No complaints, relatively cheap drinks. Have a go!

We always have a round of two of golf when we visit annually. But this year when we visited, the man there was unhelpful to the point of being rude. Needless to say we didn't play golf and would consider hard again in the future to go. Shame as the course and location are great. Next time perhaps a lesson... More

We had a great night at the golf club on our recent visit to watch the Warriors play in the NRL. There were lots of local and visiting fans like us and it felt like watching with a big group of friends. We wouldn't hesitate to go again and were made to feel really welcome. Thanks guys. Sue

Unfortunately the staff aren't the friendliest - not what I would have expected on an island that prides itself on welcoming visitors. From a technical perspective the distance markers are not accurately located (this was checked by GPS). Overall a nice golf course for a relaxing game while on holiday.
