“Nice Course”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 25, 2012

The course isn't as good as it is on the website but is still worth a hit! Definitely stay for a drink, the staff are so happy to have you there.

“Good Time”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 11, 2012

I didnt actually play, but hubby and son did,
They enjoyed there time there, but after playing 18, thought 9 was a better option. Hiring a cart is a must.

Looks great with lovely Country club building and facilities. We didn't play there, but a walk there from our resort was well worth while

“Beautiful course but a challenge !”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 5, 2012

Absolutely beautiful course with lots of palm trees, waterlillies, and tropical foliage, but challenging to play on as it gets so wet. It pays to keep your ball on the fairway (if you can !) since once you get in the rough your ball will sink into the soft ground and be lost. A previous reviewer gave up after the first hole and I can see why, but it DOES get better and slightly drier as you continue round. There are also lots of drains, the river, lily ponds and 66 bunkers to try your patience.
A golf cart is recommended as it's a long course and can get very hot, but be aware if you're physically challenged that you can't drive on the all the fairways so will have to do a certain amount of walking.
We tried the driving range the day before we played to "warm up" and it's very basic, no shelter at all.
We found both the lady in the pro shop and the groundsmen to be very friendly, which is typical of Fijians; lovely people.
