Good resort golf experience and reasonable prices (for Hawaii). Course in excellent condition, just reopened after 90 days closed down. Good pace of play, no food at the turn and one restroom closed (hole 4). Some spectacular holes and views. Well worth playing

We've enjoyed playing this course many times over the years and will continue whenever we visit this island. The fairways are wide with quite a bit of undulation and rolls; many of the tee boxes and greens have elevation changes; greenskeepers do a great job...More

This golf course charges premium green fee rates, but delivers a 3rd rate golf experience. The views of the Pacific from some holes are great. The condition of the greens was just plain poor. Many had uneven blotches of fungus. After the round of golf,...More

My wife and I love this golf course. Links style set up in beautiful shape. Great views, lots of elevated tees and in very good shape. The forward tees for the ladies are more than fair. Definitely a favorite course on the big Island.

We knew we were in for an interesting day when the big sign in the pro shop said "No Wind Checks". Russell was the cart guy and starter and he was very helpful. The tradewinds were forecast to hit the Big Island at 10 AM...More
