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.

Very pretty course, playable

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

Wind was too much.

I really would like to play this course again without the 40 MPH winds. I liked the layout, conditions were great, and pace was great. It didn't stop blowing for the whole round and by 18 it was almost ridiculous.

Incredibly maintained

I spent two weeks on the Big Island and have played eight different courses, so far. The South Course at Mauna Lani was in the best shape of them all by a wide margin. The tee boxes, fairways and greens were all in excellent condition. I played a couple other courses (Mauna Kea and Hapuna) that had greens that were also smooth and fast like this course, but the fairways on those courses were in poor condition. I played in the afternoon, so I paid $140 plus tax. It was the most expensive round I played, but it was worth it. The pace of play was also the best I've seen by a significant amount. My wife and I finished in two hours and twenty minutes. Great course! I would recommend it to anyone visiting the Big Island despite the high cost.

Best course on the island

The course is immaculate. Greens roll very true and the fairways were real grass, unlike ever other course I have played on the island. Much better than waikoloa beach and village courses. The 15th hole is breathtaking and there is a stretch of 3 holes that borders the water that is beautiful. I will definitely play here again.

Could play this course everyday, forever.

Course conditions were immaculate and the best of the six courses I've played on the Kohola Coast including Mauna Kea. I enjoy a wide open resort course with scenery and Mauna Lani delivers in spades. Four of the holes are along the ocean and the views were spectacular. We even saw a whale breaching near the 13th hole. I was going to play the North Course but ended up playing the South Course 3 days in a row. After Mauna Lani, everything else is a let down.
