Unimpressed

Course had some interesting holes, but lacked a true Hawaiian feel. Uninteresting landscapes and many condos dominated the round. Green had been freashly sanded without notice and there were many dry spots around the green. Have never played a course with crushed coral in the bunkers, it wasn't difficult to to hit out of, but it made for tough putting. It was like watching a pinball machine.

Wonderful course

Course layout is excellent and well miexed with challage ones for most golfers. Good condition of greens but bunkers are not properly maintained as thoses are not sandy bunkers. My sand wedge was damaged. Overall rate is very good when you have good skills to avoid bunkers in playing.

I believe the bunkers contain small pebbles due to the winds that come up out there. I think that without it all the sand blows away.

Course has had better days

Was very surprised that this course has not been well cared for. Sad to see it in such poor shape. Too bad the neighborhood isn't more appreciative of the jewel it has here.

Ho Hum

Course was very dried out...fairways sparse, and we had to move the ball around to find some grass, the bunkers are ground lava rock. The layout was pretty fun, and with a lot of TLC it could be a nice course. It seems that there are a lot of young local types that play here with a limited knowledge of golf etiquette. The really great courses on the Big Island are private, tied to the Four Seasons or $175 to play, so your choices are rather limited.

Surprise in Paradise on Big Island Kona

I had to cancel playing a few days earlier due to medical condition. In the meantime, I was able do a drive-by quick look at the course. I was not then impressed at all with what looked to be (at first glance) a very plain mediocre boring old-style golf experience. BUT THEN when I decided to give it a chance, the golf course came to life! The fairways were not perfect but were quite playable. The hazards were plentiful but avoidable. And the greens were superb. Besides playing some of my best golf ever, the beauty of the Hawaiian mountains and seashore with rolling hills to guide the placement of each hole was exquisite. A surprisingly exhilarating day enjoying the day. Yours Very Truly Grateful!

Best track/cost in area

Liked that this was an easy access, no frills, straight up see it & swing golf course. Loved that it was an RTJones Jr. design and not extreme or tricked up on any of the 18 holes. Course condition reflected that watering was reduced, but not to the point that the greens would not hold a well-struck approach shot. Compared to some other courses on the island it was not 'too dryed out'. Staff gets a solid grade A-. Really my only knock would be about the bunkers, which were not sand -filled but some mixture which had a content of very small pebbles. Bunkers get a C+ :-( I want to play here again & hope that I can bring a buddy or two over from the mainland when I do!

Value on the big island

Through GolfNow we obtained a good rate for the t-time. Rental Clubs were decent but high at $69 per bag.

Good round.

Had a nice round at Waikoloa. Signed up as a single. Staff tried to get me a game, but none were available. However, connected with two other singles while on the course and ended up having a nice round. Played in a tad over 4 hours. Course was very long from the forward tees which made it tough when the wind kicked up. Condition was good though I had trouble adjusting to the slow greens. Some great views of the area. Nice staff. Would play there again.
