I'm probably one of very few who would call this a good golf course, but it's a delightful golf experience. It's ridiculously economical and very walkable - pretty rare these days. It's a bare bones 'locals' course, and a great place to meet interesting folks. It also has a delightful driving range - wide open with great views (no, you can't drive the ball into the bay....I tried).

We flew to Kauai to golf for a week and one morning woke to rain, although it seemed to be clearing, so we headed to Kukuiolono figuring we could walk away from $18 if the weather didn't cooperate and we were glad we did. Two of us golfed 18 holes here with a cart for only $36. You can't beat that! The scenery was great, the price was right and we met two great people. The ground was a bit hard so it took some getting used to...

This is a fabulous lil' 9 hole course and the people for the most part are very courteous
There is one guy there at that course who is unbelievable rude for a public servant, and Mr Grady is totally accurate in his description of him. (Rude Rude Rude review) He needs serious psychiatric help.
Aside from that one guy, the place is Kauai's best kept little secret, I live here down the road and take my son there to hit balls at the driving range every week, which has a killer view of Niihau island and Lehua Island. The place has picture postcard views and is fabulously maintained, don't miss it, it is $9 to play, try and beat that value!!!!! You will thank all the people who steered you to this place, People have weddings at this place, there is a lovely Gazebo overlooking the Pacific. God bless Mr McBride (r.i.p.)who bequeathed the land to the people of Kauai. Aloha

This little public course is just FUN! Though the condition is only fair, the views are spectacular, the price is ridiculously low ($9 recently), and you can wear almost anything you want. I think it's the best bargain in golf -- anywhere.

The golf course was very good; however, the Ranger ruined this esperience for us. We had a foursome and waited on every shot, increditable because we were playing behind a twosome. We were on eight when the Ranger suddenly appeared and rudely stated you have to play faster or pick up your ball, we explained the situation but he shouted pick up your ball or play faster. We played the nine holes in well under two hours but could have played faster if not for the twosome. After the round I tried to catch the Ranger; however, he ran away and hid. A scenic course, reasonably priced but poorly managed. A complaint to the office resulted in a I just work here comment, How many times have you heard that?? Avoid the Ranger and you will have a great day, he totally ruined what could have been a perfect day and I'm NOT that sensitive.
