I played the course with three friends on my 83rd birthday. I commend the course for having multiple tee settings, which made it possible for old geezers like us to play from a suitable position (gold tees). The course is in excellent condition with good fairways and reasonable rough. The greens are undulating and extremely fast, which took some time to adapt to, resulting in a lot more 3 putts that we're used to, but it was fun nevertheless. All-in-all it was a delightful experience despite the fact that we were caught in a rainstorm on the 15th hole and didn't complete the round.

The course is in immaculate condition. I thought the course was made unnecessarily difficult due to strange placement on trees. The greens are sloping, hard and fast, so you are penalized for good approach shots. Overall, a good experience, but a bit of a contrived course.

The Ewa Beach Golf Club is a great layout with close to pristine conditions.

Unfortunately that's the only good things I can say about the course, as it suffers from a major pace of play issue and horrible customer service, likely due to poor management.

Also, conditions could be better, lots of play and few golfers who know that fixing your ball mark, plus one, is a honor.

The result for me was a round destroying pace of play that killed all rhythm, it really was difficult to play waiting forever on every shot, certainly impossible to enjoy.

The starter allowed me to play as a single, behind a fivesome, while behind me was just a threesome, not the smartest. Yes, they actually allow fivesomes, they told me that they even allow sixsomes sometimes, really???

Calls to the pro shop hoping for a ranger went unheard, and later in person after my "round" my comments were further ignored, all I got was "you completed your round and in less that 4 1/2 hours... what more do you want".... wow,, I did not realize that that was the true measurement of golf.

In light of the above, the course is expensive and time consuming and unless you get the first tee time in the morning you are likely to leave frustrated and with buyers remorse, such a shame!

I suggest choosing another of the many great tracks on Oahu.

Generally straight fairways with well positioned trees and bunkers to challenge your selection of shots. Fairways were in very good condition. Greens rolled true. Sand in bunkers was hard packed. Open course makes it very hot when the sun is out. Cooler with ice and a face towel are provided. There are cold towels available at the cart return to cool off - a nice touch.

Beware that there is no driving range - only putting and chipping area.

Tucked away in the heart of Ewa Beach is a beautiful golf course. Trees and water features that make this course beautiful are also what makes it challenging. The greens and fairways are emaculate, the roughs very thick and greens undulating. There's also full service restaurant with excellent food.

Great course and greens conditions as always!

We were a twosome playing behind a 5-some that got more than a hole behind the group in front of them. We did more waiting than we'd have liked but still enjoyed the course.

Holes 17 & 18 will test your skills in closing out a good round!

We’re Canadian snow birds. Ewa is our favourite course and we play it regularly. Of the handful of courses we play, it is easily in the best condition tee to green. It’s very beautiful and straight forward unless you neglect to consider the large kiawe trees that tend hang on either sides of the fairway. Shots slightly off line may put the branches of these large trees in play. Greens are in excellent condition, but usually hard and quick. Staff are courteous and friendly making this course a great overall choice.

The course is well maintained and has an interesting layout. Everyone was very friendly and took the time to explain the course as it was my first time playing here. The pace of play was at times very slow and that's probably because singles didn't get paired with other single players causing a slow pace. That being said, this was a great course to play and I highly recommend it.

Great views with an outstanding layout. The course lies at the tail end of the coastline so wind could be a factor depending on the time of play. It was extremely hot and humid during our round; however, the moderate tree coverage in the rough areas provided relief. The course is rather straight forward; however, if you get the ball offline (in the rough) the trees could become an issue. Pace of play was a little slower than I would've liked; however, it was a holiday weekend so I will take that into consideration. Bunker structure was solid and placed in strategic positions for the long hitter. Overall I would highly recommend playing this course whether you are a novice or experienced player. They offer both a local as well as military rate. Twilight rate proved to be the most economical.

The grass out here is like carpet. The greens were fast and incredibly smooth. This is a pretty flat, tree lined course, with good length to it. The holes are very well designed and fun to play. You cannot get a bad lie out here, it's just manicured to perfection. My only complaint is that there isn't a driving range, but there is a chipping green that you can hit shots of up 100 yards on. Overall, this is a fantastic course that has the feel of an exclusive country club.

If you're a straight hitter-avoiding the rough-this course may be relatively not so difficult; otherwise, the sticky rough and the undulating greens could prove the round very challenging.

Very well maintained. The only downside of the course is its bunkers. A handful of its sand bunkers are full of sand that is as hard as concrete. Despite the bunkers, I love playing at this course. Great value on golfnow.
