Course was nothing spectacular, no bunkers, very few yardage markers but not really needed as most holes were par 3. Pro Shop staff was very accomodating and gave us free used balls and tees for our round. Our round was very cheap with rented clubs and for what we payed the course was definitely adequate.

Initially I excluded this course because it is par 3 course but I couldn't resist the great deal I got on this course.<br/> The pro shop is under renovation, check-in was outside of the building, however, the guy was very efficient and helpful.<br/> The course is kept in a decent condition, a good place for kids, beginners, or somebody who wants to practice short games.<br/> Some holes are surprisingly beautiful,<br/> worth to go for once at least. If you are not into a par 3 course it is not your best choice to spend 2 hours on your holiday.

This is probably one of the best values in golf in Hawaii right now. Yes it is a par 60 and mostly par 3's but its still challenging and has great views for a great price.

Front nine was boring, thought this place was not worth the 12 dollars I paid. The the back nine more than made up for it. Beautiful views, hilly, just plain fun. Course conditions were poor. Cart ran out of power and had to push it in on the 9th hole. But I play there again for $12.

No par 5. Very short but fun to play. Construction going on, not easy finding the check in desk, golf cart not needed but was very weak( nearly had to push it up a hill on the path). Overall I'd do it again

I played 18 holes here with my wife. We both had lots of fun. The course layout is excellent and offers lots of challenges and good view holes. We particularly enjoyed the driving range before the round. The course was a little wet when we played however, it was overall good value for the money.

This was my first experience at Bayview.<br/> Although the weather was excellent, the course was very soggy. It seems to drain poorly, making for a muddy quagmire in places.<br/> The grass was very long, even in the fairways, but the greens were in a little better shape. The rough was very thick and wet, requiring me to sometimes club up a couple of clubs to ensure I'd get out of it.<br/> The greens fees were very cheap, so I guess I got what I paid for.<br/> There was a lot of construction to a local sewer project going on, shortening one hole from a par 4 to a par 3, and creating a couple of detours.<br/> The staff were friendly, and doing their best.<br/> There are some beautiful views of Kaneohe Bay on the back nine.<br/> All in all I did not have an experience I could recommend, but if you're just looking for a quick, cheap round, go for it.

This course is great for practicing your short game although there are 6 par 4 holes (3 front / 3 back nine). Because the par 4 are short one could drive the green, makes it fun for us weekend warrior's. Flags are visible for all holes from the tee.<br/> There are no sand bunkers, only grass/weed pits. The greens are nicer now compared to past conditions. There are no Course Marshalls so sometimes the pace of play can't be very slow, depending on how many less skilled players are ahead of you.<br/> The Snack Shop just opened recently and the food is average.<br/> The two tier Driving Range allows for warming up or just practice. Great place for one to teach a young golfer provided the instructor has golf manners and allow a faster player or smaller group to play through. Beautiful scenery on the back nine.

Good course for both beginner and experience players. Greens in good shape, fairways ok, Only grip was the need for a marshall on the course for slow groups. Had a group with 7 players in front, holding up everybody behind. No limit on number of players in a group?

This is a good course for beginners or those who want to play a quick round of golf with friends. It's a par 60, with four par 4s that you can use driver or 3-wood on.

Greens are in mostly good condition though 2 or 3 on the back nine are a little rough, not enough sun gets to those spots. The fairways on two of the par 4s are pretty narrow so you can lose your tee shot if you're not accurate. The view of Kaneohe Bay from the 15th tee is pretty nice.

The staff was pretty friendly and groups seemed spaced out well. A marshal would be nice to hurry the slow groups along though.

Bay view still has some work to do but I enjoyed the round. Greens are in great shape. Some holes (1,2,5,6) need attention. This course will give you a run for the money and I certainly will play on it again. Perfect for the second round of the day.

Great shape and can't beat the price! With GolfNow discount it was almost 50% off but regular price is $20 per w/cart so it is a bargain. Par 3 course with 3 par 4's a side. Not as easy as it seems on score card. Very challenging holes.

Most of the par 3 holes are fairly short (under 130yards). The par 4s are adequate. The greens were well kept. I could see that management was putting $$$ back towards the course through the repairs that were being done to the bridges that connect up the courses (along with the conditions the greens were in). The course had other golfers but was able to play at a comfortable pace and did not feel rush.
