Overall a nice course. Great views of surrounding landscape. Friendly staff. Only complaint was some of the course that was being refurbished and under repair during play. All water hazards were non existent, water drained out and dug up. Part of the course was taped off due to repair. The course was just watered right before our round so it was really wet during play. I think they must be refurbishing the course because it was in severe repair. Usually GolfNow advises of such things but we were given no warning about these repairs when we booked tee time. Course maintenance workers were also maintaining the course during play, walking on the greens fertilizing the green while you were trying chip on green or trying to putt. They couldn't even wait for you to finish your business on the green first. Lawn mowers going off right next to you while teeing off. No golf etiquette whatsoever. Despite these set backs I still had a great time.

I read the reviews on golfnow before making this one of the five that I played this week. I'm not sure what these golfers are used to but this course should be closed for repsirs.The fairway didn't exist on some holes, MAJOR PROBLEMS !!! Some greens were decent and the layout was not that bad. The two major problems are the cost and the grouping.For the condition of the course NO ONE should pay over $30 to play this course.There was a group of nine, nope not four players then five players, All nine teeing off and a group of six much further ahead of me. I'm just trying to warn you like I wish someone would have done for me.

I forgot how much fun this course is. From the great staff in the pro shop to the excellent short game and range facility a great experience.

Gotta think your way around the front while the back is "let's get some birdies". Can't believe it took me this long to come back. Great improvements with new management and ownership.

Excellent conditioning great scenery and strategy to the course. Really fun time all the way around.

Olomana needs a lot<br/> Of work. Drainage is the issue. Only<br/> Half of the course was open and when it is open to all 18 it still needs work.<br/> If it was $20 to play it would be worth it. Anyone and I will just go to another course.<br/> Love the views and the greens are great and employees are amazing. but everything else needs help.

Fantastic round of golf on Independence Day, the course was not very busy, despite being a federal holiday and a Saturday. Played in the morning starting at 0800 and finished by 1100 even with a slight back-up near the last two holes. Conditions on the course were outstanding, Pacific Links has done some needed work on the fairways and you can tell they are spending money to improve the course. The restaurant upstairs from the pro shop has some great views of the course and the staff is great. If you come to Oahu, play this course, it is worth the short drive from Waikiki for the views and the course.

Greens and bunkers on the whole are good and improving, need a little more sand and drag. Fairways are showing work to improve, eliminating most major dips, still have a way to go with seeding. Tee boxes were generally hard, but this is after several days of extreme heat.

I consider this my "home course" - play on average about once a week, 9 hole practice for league play at other similar courses. Has nice variety of challenges.

Paired with junior girl golfer that was fun to watch and a cut or two above my game.

This place was in very poor condition; especially considering a $100 rate.....! Very dried out fairways. Greens were OK, and fairway staff were very nice/accommodating, but the track needs some water and fertilizer!! I'd look elsewhere...there are plenty of options!

Green fees have been raised since Pacific Links purchased the course although the course is basically the same with muddy terrible fairway conditions especially on the front 9. Cosmetic improvements to the snack bar (a new roof), landscaping near the clubhouse, and new seats at the driving range seems to be the reasons for raising the fees. Greens are ok but some of the bunkers have virtually no sand and is as hard as cement. Number 14 is now a temporary par 3 instead of a normal par 4 although no mention of this was made when we purchased the green fees. Pace of play was also extremely slow although a marshall was spotted driving around several times but making no effort to speed up slow players. Although we got a discounted rate on golfnow.com, it was not worth it. Olomana used to be a fun reasonably priced track for the locals but is now no longer affordable nor worth it.
