Overview

The Top Golf Experience on Kauai; Our 27-hole Golf Facility was designed by Mr. Robert Trent Jones Jr.-in the late 1960s. We recently went through an extensive renovation to 18 (Oceans & Lakes Nines) of our 27 holes (Woods Is Still Open But Was Not Renovated). The new 18 was opened in January of 2010 and is now know as the Makai Course. The new and improved championship Makai course is a breath taking par-72 at over 7,200 yards. We proudly boast some of the most epic ocean/mountain views Hawaii golf has to offer.

The sunset golf cart tour was beautiful. Our guide stayed with us the whole time. He was great. The views were breath taking. The sunset was so worth it. It overlooked The Queen's Bath. This was well worth it.

I had a good time playing the course. No 3 hole is spectacular. The greens where punched three weeks ago and where very soft and spongy. Very slow greens. I would play it again but it is pricey!!!!

First a disclaimer: we played most of the Makai course; we missed the last 4 holes on account of rain. It's not an inexpensive course, which made giving up difficult. But frankly, it was still worth it. The course was challenging but not ridiculous. It...More

Makai is a beautiful course, with outstanding ocean views on several holes. Many of the holes are quite challenging, and there are a lot of bunkers on the course, but it's still worth playing. They have new carts this year, with car-type bucket seats that...More

Very well maintained course with picturesque views on most holes. Not very challenging but you still have to hit the ball in the hole to score well. Staff brought fresh pineapple out on course and checked on the experience multiple times. Note: No windmill features...More

As I recall, we paid around $250 with club rentals. Multi round prices are a good deal if you plan to play more than one round.
