“Beautiful!”

Love the surrounding beauty here. It is romantic and the weather is always great, the scenery is to die for and the hotel is a first class venue.

“Conditions Dictate Quality of Play”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 4, 2012 via mobile

The course is highly playable with a variety of tees. There are a few up and down holes but most subtle turns one way or the other. Terrain is 'rolling' with many opportunities for uneven lies. Greens are medium to large in size and some offer significant undulation.

The key is the weather, the wind can ratchet up into the 30-40 mph range and make your round a little more challenging than enjoyable.

“They make you feel appreciated!!!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 9, 2012

From the time you arrive, they are jumping to help you out and get whatever you need. Beautiful course with great views. I highly recommend it when you are visiting the big island.

“Book your tee time later in the day”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 29, 2012

Early in the morning is great at Hapuna, but at 7 or 8 AM tee times, high winds blowing down from Waimea uphill may be a challenge for the first 9 holes. Sorry no "wind checks" at this course. Biggest benefit: you'll have the course to yourself early in the morning. Complimentary coffee and baked goodies (maybe yesterday's, but who cares?) await you, while you head to the driving range... where the unlimited range balls are also complimentary, so check in early. Drop your bags at the entrance and a staffer will come retrieve them in less time than it takes to park your car. This is a resort course with dramatic ocean views below you, but beware of the greens, upon which your ball may roll 20-30 feet away from the pin depending on where you land and how the wind blows. These greens are fast and unforgiving when you tap your ball on the downhill slope of many greens. Challenging but a great Big Island Golfing value!

“Fun course!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 23, 2012

Can be challenging, but fair and fun. Great for Ohana (family) golf. Spectacular view looking out over the 16th hole, my favorite on the course.
