Course layout is excellent and well miexed with challage ones for most golfers. Good condition of greens but bunkers are not properly maintained as thoses are not sandy bunkers. My sand wedge was damaged. Overall rate is very good when you

have good skills to avoid bunkers in playing.

Course was very dried out...fairways sparse, and we had to move the ball around to find some grass, the bunkers are ground lava rock. The layout was pretty fun, and with a lot of TLC it could be a nice course. It seems that there are a lot of young local types that play here with a limited knowledge of golf etiquette. The really great courses on the Big Island are private, tied to the Four Seasons or $175 to play, so your choices are rather limited.

I had to cancel playing a few days earlier due to medical condition. In the meantime, I was able do a drive-by quick look at the course. I was not then impressed at all with what looked to be (at first glance) a very plain mediocre boring old-style golf experience.

BUT THEN when I decided to give it a chance, the golf course came to life! The fairways were not perfect but were quite playable. The hazards were plentiful but avoidable. And the greens were superb. Besides playing some of my best golf ever, the beauty of the Hawaiian mountains and seashore with rolling hills to guide the placement of each hole was exquisite.

A surprisingly exhilarating day enjoying the day.

Yours Very Truly Grateful!

Liked that this was an easy access, no frills, straight up see it & swing golf course. Loved that it was an RTJones Jr. design and not extreme or tricked up on any of the 18 holes. Course condition reflected that watering was reduced, but not to the point that the greens would not hold a well-struck approach shot. Compared to some other courses on the island it was not 'too dryed out'. Staff gets a solid grade A-. Really my only knock would be about the bunkers, which were not sand -filled but some mixture which had a content of very small pebbles. Bunkers get a C+ :-( I want to play here again & hope that I can bring a buddy or two over from the mainland when I do!

Had a nice round at Waikoloa. Signed up as a single. Staff tried to get me a game, but none were available. However, connected with two other singles while on the course and ended up having a nice round. Played in a tad over 4 hours. Course was very long from the forward tees which made it tough when the wind kicked up. Condition was good though I had trouble adjusting to the slow greens. Some great views of the area. Nice staff. Would play there again.

Waikoloa Village is a very nice public course. Well-maintained and has a challenging but not too difficult layout. The traps do take some getting used to as most of them have crushed coral instead of sand. Completely differnt when itting outt of them. Greens are firm but roll pretty true. Overall, it's a great course for the price. Will definitely play again next tie we are here.

The Waikoloa Village course is actually in the town of Waikoloa Village, about 6 miles inland (mauka) from the Waikoloa Resort area. The course is really nice, is relatively easy to play (wide fairways and few hazards), and was in very good condition when I played. Greens rolled true but were a little slow, probably needed mowing. The layout was really nice and views probably would have been amazing, but unfortunately it wasn't a very clear day. Nene geese were everywhere, but not a problem. Even saw some wild turkeys. I played in the afternoon, but wind was not a factor as I had read it could be. Overall, it was a terrific round at less than half the price (I found a GolfNow Hot Deal) of the courses in the Waikoloa Resort area where I was staying, weekday afternoon play was light and I finished in 3 hours which was awesome, and I would definitely recommend the course to anyone who would just like to play a good round and doesn't need the gingerbread of the high dollar Resort courses.

Waikoloa does not have the stunning views of some courses, however the price reflects this. Wide fairways with good, fast greens made for an enjoyable round. We played as a two ball and were played through by a slower group but later in the round we could see that matches were bunching up behind them, so pace of play could be an issue for late starters. We found ALL the staff very helpful and happy to chat or answer questions.

If we were here for a longer period we would play it again but we only have 3 weeks and want to play as many different courses as we can. Lucky us !

Good value for money as there are tee time deals around, well done to the staff especially the course marshall.

Very nice course. Very friendly staff. Just watch out on #17 if you stank it left past the poles that say no carts beyond this point. It actually means nothing beyond that point. We misunderstood the signs and my son got yelled at that he was on private property by the next door neighbor. My son hit his bal quickly and we left. We were met at the green by the ranger who spoke to my son and drove him back to repair a scuff mark in the grass. Not a divot a scuff mark. Other than that it was a very nice course and will probably play it again. This was a hot deal on golf now,com.

Being a 15 handicapper, I enjoyed the resort-width fairways off the white tees & the generous greens. both were in good shape. the greens were quite fast and broke noticeably toward the ocean. Always seem to get paired up with someone that is very sociable and fun to golf with. will golf here again.
