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.

Got a great hot deal and paid $50. A very good price/value for this course. I don't believe it warrants up to the $100 it is in the morning. But, the staff was great; friendly and welcoming. The greens were very good and the fairways in nice shape. Several holes offer very nice expansive views toward the ocean. The day we played it was not blowing (this area evidently has a reputation for being windy) and the threatening clouds/rain showers never showed up (in fact, it made it much more pleasant in temperature). Definitely a very good course that was fun to play (we were two couples). The one semi-negative is that many of the bunkers contain coral (some have sand) and it not only 'sails' a ball that hits it on the fly, but makes it very tough to hit out of. Overall, a good experience!

Have never played a course while tradewinds gusted up to 30 mph. Very challenging, but you could play. Saw a lot of birds(Nenes, turkeys and some I didn't know so had to take the photos). Viewso f Mauna Kea with the observatories and snow on top on one side and the Pacific Ocean on the other were awesome. All the staff very helpful and friendly. Course in great condition. Would have love a drink cart to come by.......Love Waikoloa Village so I had to buy the shirt

It was okay for 18 holes off resort and in the middle of February. The pace of play could be improved. Too many bottlenecks along the way. Very reasonable prices for a course of this level. Fairways and geeens were in good to very good condition. Recommend for an afternoon of golf.

The course benefits from being about a 20 min drive from the Waikoloa Beach resorts. With the course being at a higher elevation, you get some pretty nice views of the coast. The course itself is pretty wide open. Greens were fairly flat and slow.

I paid $100 on GolfNow. Didn't think it was worth $100, but given its golf in January in Hawaii, I guess that's par for the course.
