As a holiday only golfer, I found the course to be a little over done with the water traps. Several balls later a bit of frustration set in a I found myself losing interest in the course.

As part of our tour package we received unlimited golf. The course was amazing and it was great we received a free golf buggy to use for the day. We also had a chance to go to mini golf and for $22fj each it was a very entertaining arvo.

The food at the golf club is also cheap and delicious. Chicken pizza was the best!

Definitely get down there and check it out!

Brother and I played the course several times during our stay. Its a great course, which changes from high tide to low, or if there is rain in the hills - we experienced all of these conditions. Day 1, I won, as I only 'mislaid' 2 balls, where brother 'lost' 10 - good chuckles for me in the superb 19th afterwards. Next round though, my chuckles were not so evident as I had 'mislaid' 9 balls, and brother had lost only 3 - so we were square through two games, and equal at the 19th (but don't have the caeser salad, as it was definately the worst we have had, anywhere in the world)! Beer was good and cold, and a hospitality cart cruises the course to keep you hydrated.

The despatch supervisor is Jone (pronounced John) and he and his staff go out of the way to make you welcome and ensure you enjoy your experience on a very good, japanese designed, challenging golf course. The club staff are equally efficient and friendly and we were sad when we had to say goodbye when we headed home. Brother doesn't want me to tell you about the third round - can't understand why :)

Great venue, great fun

Played course once on recent trip, I don't ply much these days but surprised at how well I actually went. Didn't find the water too often even though there is plenty there. Major storm the night before a bit of water lying around but excellent drainage on course and greens were great.
Also had dinner there one night and takeaway pizza another night. Good pizza and very reasonably priced for Denerau.

My partner and I recently stayed at the Sheraton. We spent most of our time at the Golf Club. The beers are cheap and pizzas are huge! The staff are friendly and always smiling. The band keeps everyone entertained. Highly recommend this place, it was a welcome change from the overpriced Sheraton.
