Hosted by Head pro Tom. Beautiful ocean, mountain and coastline vistas. Stunning sunset.
Great flora and fauna detail with Tom. A fantastic experience and highly recommended. Thanks for the approach tips on that signature hole Tom.

It’s like playing in paradise. I hadn’t planned on playing on holiday - as it was a bit expensive and I didn’t want to take my clubs from UK to Hawaii. However when I arrived and saw how stunning it is, I couldn’t resist.

The practice range and greens are spectacular - with as many balls as you need.

The course itself is incredible, the tee boxes are nice they could be greens, and the greens and fairways are immaculate. And the views are unbeatable.

Rental clubs were great, with Callaway Rogue irons and Hybrids, Callaway Epic Flash driver, Callaway Mack daddy SW & GW, odyssey exo putter and I can’t remember the 3-wood. Plus you get 6 Makai branded balls. Golf carts with GPS and distance to the green are included with the green fees, which makes things a lot easier.

The staff are great - checking in regularly along the course to see if you need anything and sometimes offering advice. The drinks cart finds you a couple of times on the course too. Ice cold beers just makes it even better.

It’s awesome, can’t recommend it enough.

I frequently walk the mile and a half from my home to the Makai Golf Club snack bar to have a breakfast burrito or scrambled eggs and croissant with a cup of freshly brewed local coffee. Made to order. They also serve lunch items, wine and beer. One can order "to go" or comfortably sit at outdoor table under a roof and gaze out at the beautiful golf course or look the other way to watch folks playing tennis. There is an upscale bathroom and a golf shop with clothing and a variety of items plus a driving range. Oh and there is a TV turned to a sports channel... Can make a morning walk pure delight.

My husband and I were told this tour was great...however, we were skeptical. A tour around a golf course at sunset doesn't sound that appealing. Boy were we wrong!

Tom, our guide, has worked at the gold course for many years and is fulfilling a dream of his to play golf and live in Kauai. He was so personable and friendly and he even tried to remember everyone's name!

The tour itself was so beautiful. We decided to do this tour at the last minute and we were so happy that we did. The views are literally worth millions. The day of our tour was the day after a giant windstorm had gone through Kauai. Trees were down (almost on houses), the conditions were still windy, and the scenery looked a little different due to the storm. However, we saw Queen's Bath, long distance views of Hanalei, and the most gorgeous sunset.

GREAT TOUR!

We golfed several times for the Wednesday afternoon golf scramble during our 3 week stay on the north shore of Kauai. The fee -$ 150 includes club rentals (new Calloways), an hour golf clinic, 9 holes of a golf scramble and then time to continue to golf the back nine after the scramble. We also got to see beautiful sunsets from Hole 14 and Holes 6 and 7 with magnificent views of the coastline.

Did not really know what to expect, and what a pleasant surprise.
Randy our tour guide, took about 40 people in 20 gold carts around, stopping along the way and providing great information on the area.
The golf course is set in one of the most beautiful, breathtaking locations and a sunset is the best opportunity for those stunning pictures we all want to take.
Really enjoyed it.
Do take a light jacket or a shawl. It can get a little nippy in the evening.

Thank you again for joining us and for taking the time to share your memories. Aloha!!!

This sunset tour combines adult go carting with phenomenal views, great information, and meeting of people everywhere. Our group of 6 ranging in age from 13 to 75 had the best time. Views of Hanalei Bay, Queens Bath, the lighthouse.. I would include pics but don't want to ruin it for you. Absolutely the best. Can't say enough about it.. your guide Andy/Andrew will will disappoint you.

"Adult Go Carting?" Thank you so much for that description of our Sunset Golf Cart Tour....I can't wait to use that going forward! So happy to see that non-golfers such as yourself were able to experience and appreciate the stunning beauty surrounding The Princeville Makai Golf Club as that is exactly why we came up with the idea! Also pleased to hear that you were able to experience the Unmatched Aloha of our teaching professional, Andrew Schmidt. He truly exemplifies the meaning of "Aloha Spirit!" Thank you so much for joining us and taking a moment to share your thoughts. We look forward to seeing you out here again very soon. Aloha!

See the spectacular views for $50 (1 cart/2 people). Check in around 4:30, get 2 for 1 happy hr priced drinks, and drive your cart for a fun and informative tour of some of the most beautiful views on north shore. We've been coming to Kauai for 19 yrs and this was something easy, different and fun to do.
