Very dissatisfied in course conditions. Course had been recently aerated and we were not told when booking. Greens still had bumps and sand in aerification holes. I don't recommend course only due to the course''s management not being honest about this. Otherwise course was good. Disappointed that Golf Now didn't tell us about aerification. I don't know if that is Golf Nows fault for not notifying or the courses fault, bUT either way it was disappointing for us.

Aeration alert, while we were aware of the aeration, would like to play again after greens are back in shape. The fairways were well kept, though course was bone dry. Staff was great, booked online advance tee time, rain in forecast, called the course and they moved tee time to another day without even questioning, big props. Starter was helpful and informative; not your typical course, some greens are huge, others are minuscule. Pace of play was good, other than a fivesome out in front of us, but course wasn't busy so we still had three finish in 3:50. Variable tee options for various skill levels, not any yardage marked on course other than tees and 150 markers. Some holes had pin locations that felt a little gimmicky. Some hidden water as well. Overall it was a good experience, will return if second or third round for the week, wouldn't make this my only HHI golf experience in a given time frame. Water coolers were located about every other hole which is a big plus in the humidity of the Island.

Overall recommend checking out course!

When I scheduled my round there was no notification of the condition of the greens. There was know mention of it when I checked in either. The greens had just been sanded an were, for the most part, unputtable. The course should have given me an option to play or to get a rain check to play when the greens were in better condition. I realize the need for this type of maintenance, but the customer should be given the option to play or not.

The starter was very friendly and informative. Told us of the large greens and getting the right yardage. The course was in very good shape and the greens were fast and puttable although they were very big with many undulations. It is a very hard course for all players. There are numerous water holes and bunkers. This would not be for the high handicapper. Playing it several times would be helpful.

Our threesome enjoyed playing this course very much. The greens were in great condition, fast and consistent. The fairways were also in good condition. The layout is playable and most enjoyable. The starter was very friendly and helpful. It was our first time playing here and we would definitely like to play this course again.

This course is very difficult to play without local knowledge as there is trouble everywhere and no good way to know where it is. Some of the greens and pin placements were borderline silly.

Also didn't like that 9 green to 10 tee did not pass the clubhouse.

But it is a very challenging course, in my opinion several shots harder than the course rating, staff was nice, free range balls and it was in good shape.

First time at course. Unfortunately very dry and brown Bermuda. Greens in good shape. Pace was great because it was afternoon on a hot day and no one else was playing. Never played on a course that has a true rectangle green with matching traps on either side.... unique?. No stop at clubhouse at turn. Want to play it again once it greens up.

The greens were great but some of the fairways were a bit dried out and brown. Sneaky water hazards that are not easily seen from the tee box so check the water location before hand on each hole. We played a morning round and paid extra to do so the value can be higher if you play later. Range balls were not limited at that time of day so you could work on your game a bit before the tons if you get there before your tee time which added value to the round for me.
