I had a very enjoyable round of golf at the royal Hawaiian golf course this week. Perhaps the most scenic and picturesque course I have ever played. Very challenging with dense jungle and ravines in play on most holes. My only issue was that the greens were only recently aerated although I got a discount on green fees. Also I... More

The former Luana Hills course is built in the midst of a tropical rainforest. They are undergoing a rather extensive reorganization, with their fourth owner. The scorecard distances are not accurate, and the hole layout is being rearranged. There is plenty of mud on this tract, but sadly no ball washers. The golf holes are set up for target golf....

The only thing this course has going for it, is that it has great views. My husband and I showed up for our tee time only to discover that there was no driving range! They don't tell you that when you book your tee time. This course has apparently changed hands and is in a transitional phase. The club house... More

I hadn't been out to Royal Hawaiian Golf Club (formerly Luana Hills) for about six years. It was much too painful to play, as a beginner. I was able to pull together a foursome for a nice early morning, tee-time. It was about 80 degrees and breezy and not a drop of rain in the sky (rare for the Windward... More

Great layout. Very few back to back holes. Front nine is on the side of volcanic mount and back nine is cut through the jungle.

It's a love/hate relationship with this place. It's one of our favorite courses to play in Oahu because it's absolutely gorgeous, but it's also where we lose the most golf balls. Bring plenty of extra sleeves and your water balls - you'll use them all. This is target golf at its best...or worst. If you play from the black tee... More

This golf course has changed ownership and is now called ROYAL HAWAIIN. What a wonderful golf course - do not forget to take a camera. Some of the scenery is amazing. The views of the countryside, and the golf holes will blow you away. We played here the day after playing Ko'olua Golf Course - they are a little different... More

This golf course is unique. the views almost made me forget that I came here to play golf. Every hole seems different. The course is nestled into the hillside. Giant trees, flowers, ravines, streams all are part of the experience. The only bummer is that they do not let you walk the course. I guess the distances between holes are... More

Played Luana Hills last week (3/11). This is definitely a unique golf course. The setting cannot really be described in words. Think Jurassic Park. I really am amazed they were able to carve a golf course out of this jungle setting. My wife absolutely loved it. The downside for us is that we went on a rainy day, and it... More
