Simply beautiful!

Wonderful layout, beautiful scenery and 18 different holes - all memorable.

Easier at least for me than the North Course.

Fairways, greens are in pristine condition. Doesn’t hurt when you play well and get to see humpback whales playing off the shore.

Great course if you don’t get behind a 6-some.

Course layout is spectacular but after 4 hole came up on at least 2 groups in front of us waiting at every tee. On a couple hole there was a third group in front of us at the tee as well and it had 6 player. It is ridicules to pay $235 for a round and have them let a group of 6 go out in front of us. Tried to buy a sandwich from the cart since there is no snack bar at the turn didn’t see her for at least 2 hours then when she did show up only had a vegetarian sandwich. If you want to play a great course and don’t mind waiting 20 minutes plus at every hole this is the place for you.

Unforgettable

If get a chance to play this course do it. The holes on the water are incredible. The course plays fair. So much fun to snap a few photos along the way. Great time. Only criticism is that there is no 19th hole. It would have been awesome to debrief the round over a drink and a bite. Pricey but worth it.

Expensive but nice

Very nice course, the 15 th. Hole did not disappoint as far as pictures is concerned! Very nice par 3. Other holes was beautiful for pictures. Love the design of course. It was challenging and fun. A little overpriced to me.

The most beautiful course I ever played.

This course should be in your golf bucket list. If you stay and play there, you will notice the grounds keepers start working early in the morning. And there are more grounds keepers than players! That alone will tell you how well this place is being kept. Spotless, meticulous and absolutely gorgeous! And if you can, stay in one of their resort because you won't be disappointed.

This was my 3rd time playing this course and it never gets old. One of my favorites in all the Hawaii islands. I can't recommend this course higher.

Wonderful

This is such a great course. A must play in Hawaii. Several ocean holes and a par three (we both birdied!) that definitely rivals Mauna Kea's famous par three across the ocean. Staff was super friendly and the course was in great shape. Can't wait to come back!

Experience of a lifetime

As an avid average below golfer it was a fun and challenging course. I am a straight shooter. Someone with a draw or fade might find lava and no ball. Holes are different features. For not knowing course I handled well

playing on carpeting

Course conditions were perfect, like carpeting. Staff was a little dry but helpful. They lacked the enthusiasm you would expect for a high dollar course. Oceanside holes were spectacular. No push from anyone behind us. Perfect pace to match perfect conditions. So nice!

Call course before booking online

The rates jump up and down, best to contact proshop prior to booking on golf now. I received a better deal through course.
The course is amazing with perfect fairways and greens cut through lava fields, 1 of a kind experience.
Would be nice at that price to have gps on carts to help with course layout.
Overall a must

Save the best for last

By far best conditioned course and greens I played during the week Beautiful views along the ocean with a mix of challenging holes and typical resort type layout. Pro shop was well stocked for both men and women and staff were friendly.

I played as a single and played round in 3 hours. Two foursomes were kind and let me play through.

Lava, Palm and Paspalum Paradise

A palm lined and lava outcropping tropical delight. Paspalum greens were perfect, rolling quick and smoothly. The rough requires a firmer stroke as this amazing grass strain sticks the blade unlike the common bermuda found at Mauna Lani's penny pinching neighbors. Playing the tips you'll find the use of visual intimidation off the tee is ever present yet the fairways are quite large to compensate for the blustery typical trade winds. Outstanding #7 and #15 par threes on the ocean are not only amazingly beautiful but fair compared to the monstrosity of near by Mauna Kea's two Pacific signatures. The par four #13 is as well quite beautiful down to the ocean side green overlooking the bay and #15. Off the back tee the excellent just inland par four #14 looks like the meeting of heaven with a slice of green fairway overwhelmed by Dante's Inferno of several black lava outcroppings. Nothing like this hole on earth! Aim for the jagged big black mound slightly right and you'll find the fairway is more than ample to capture good drives. Along with its uniquely different but also great North course Mauna Lani was clearly the best of the Big Island north west coast resort courses. With the magical year round turf you could play these two fine tracks every day and never have the same experience because of the ever changing winds off the brilliant warm blue Pacific. Paradise found.

Awesomeness

If you have the chance to play here do it you will not be disappointed. At arrival to leaving the property you will enjoy every moment of your experience. Course conditions were the best on our trip and we played 7 different courses on Oahu and kona. The best hands down. If you can play early morning or pick a day in the afternoon that the wind won't effect your experience, as the trade winds can push upwards of 40 mph afternoon. Enjoy!

Golf and whale watch!

This course is so enjoyable and provides spectacular scenery. There are several holes adjacent to the ocean and of course their signature 15th hole has an ocean carry. The course was in perfect condition. Most of the holes provide plenty of bail out opportunities and thus is not as tough as others and perfect for me. Next time I'm on the Big Island I will definitely play this course.

Glad we played the South Course first. North Course was easier, but with no views. The staff was very good and helpful. Enjoyable day.
