“GOLF AT THE AFRICAN AIRPORT”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 3, 2013

This is a terrible course! the expensive green fees and inner nine holes are amidst a barren, african style like tundra, virtually devoid of vegetation and adjacent to the takeoff point to the airport! Cant even hear yourself scream!- We left and at least our money was refunded.

“Economical value compared to Mauna Kea”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 30, 2013

The Beach course was in very good condition. I was pleasantly surprised. It was busy. Chances are you will not be able to golf alone. It was very well maintained. Relatively forgiving. Worth the $135 paid.

“Beautiful 7th hole”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 27, 2013

well maintained golf course, 7th hole at the ocean is worth the price of admission, would recommend getting a Golf Hawaii card to lessen the impact of the golf rates.

“Better golf in Waikoloa”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 26, 2013

It has been bout 10 years since I last played Waikoloa beach course, and it has really gone down hill. Despite playing in the morning, it played like the greens had not been rolled, and the bunkers had not been dressed. Fairways were certainly not as prestine as I remember, with muddy areas and bare areas. For the price, I would have expected better. On the positive, the pro shop staff was very nice and flexible in having to adjust the tee time.

“great view on Beach Course #7, but in only fair shape”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 24, 2013

We have played the Beach course three times over the last 8 years. The view from the par 5 #7 hole is spectacular,..we have seen our share of whales breaching the water as we putted our pars in [!!] the last time we played [first week of March]. That one hole is almost worth the [expensive] greens fee, but the rest of the course had several fairways in pretty rough shape. Also, we only saw the cart lady on the 9th hole, she had only two sandwiches left ,and there was no drinking water for us anywhere on the course. Most golf courses i have played do have water stations every few holes. Just none to be seen here. There was no place to get a snack at the 9th hole turnaround; so overall, the services were lacking. I do not expect a full course meal when we are out to play golf, but occasionally, it's nice to grab a soda or candy bar at the turn.
