A Prince of a challenge

What a shame the Prince Course is going private because visitors to Kauai will certainly miss this course. It's probably the most difficult course on Kauai with lots of memorable holes. Another renovation will reportedly soften the course, which has one of the hardest opening holes in all of golf. A top 100 course, it's also a lot of work. High handicappers will struggle with the forced carries, difficult elevated greens and uneven lies.

Absolutely Must Play Course

Played for the first time on my honeymoon. Was better than I expected with great a staff who were extremely friendly. Was fortunate to play by myself and my wife who rode along. The course was in great shape although the the greens were much slower than I would have guessed. No need to be long off the tee (I used driver 2x only) but need to keep it straight and controlled. If you ever have a chance to play, it's absolutely worth it. The sights and vistas are second to none.

Course was amazing but EXTREMELY HARD.

I'll start off by saying the staff and facilities are top notch. They literally go out of their way to make sure you have the best experience possible. Now on to the golf.. I consider myself an above average golfer. I have a 3.7 index but absolutely struggled on pretty much the entire course. I'm the type of golfer who plays best when I can hit it long off the tee. This is not one of those courses. I think I was able to pull my driver out of the bag twice. The course is the definition of target golf. A lot of the greens were all or nothing. If you aren't straight off the tee and fairways you will require a couple dozen golf balls. However the greens are fairly large but not very flat. I recommend this course because the views are second to none. Absolutely stunning visuals. Play this course to say you did and take a lot of pictures but you will not go low.

Bravo Mr. Jones Jr.

You step up to the first tee and you think...oh my gosh...what do I do? Thankfully the course starter tells me that a shot of 220 to 230 is called for to a landing area that slopes away from you to the hazard. Intimidating? You bet. If you miss that, the fairway zigs right then left and its narrow! You think to yourself...I didn't bring enough golf balls. That is the true beauty of this golf course. Mr. Jones Jr. designed a course that makes you think. Yes, you have to think about every shot you play. If you do that, you will have a truly great golf experience. I did. I found this course to be breathtaking, difficult, but fair. Its not for everyone but if you've got game...you have to go. This course gave me my most memorable golf experience. Loved it. Bravo Mr. Jones Jr.

Live like royalty on the Prince course at Princeville

Word of warning: The Prince course at Princeville will break you. But you'll still enjoy every minute of its challenge. This beautiful brute ranks no. 22 on Golf Digest's list of "America's 100 Greatest Public Golf Courses" and in a tie for 46th on its list of "America's 75 Toughest Golf Courses." A $5 million facelift has the iconic Robert Trent Jones Jr. course on Kauai's north shore looking spectacular again. The extensive refurbishment project finished in 2012 added tee boxes, rebuilt bunkers and covered all the greens with seashore paspalum while enhancing playability in certain areas. The rejuvenated 13-acre practice area includes a beautiful driving range that transforms into a six-hole par-3 course in the late afternoons. The "Mini Prince" -- designed for beginners and families to walk -- features holes ranging from 65 to 91 yards. The big course roams though thick vegetation that gobbles up errant shots. It flirts with a few ocean views on the sixth and seventh holes before diving back into the jungle. A waterfall behind the 13th green provides striking natural beauty. The 66,000-square-foot clubhouse is just as magnificent with floor-to-ceiling windows and The Tavern Restaurant by celebrity chef Roy Yamaguchi. Little touches - like the free pineapple slices delivered during the round - shows how dedicated the staff is to making every visit enjoyable.

Great views

A strategic course with many forced carries. Bring a dozen balls just in case. Enjoy the views, play from the correct tees, and remember your on vacation.

a challenging layout

This is a beautiful course that roams over acres of hills near the ocean. You rarely find a straight hole. A few lay-ups off the tee are required to put you in position for your next shot. They also have a great pro shop.
