Golf Advisor: Top Courses in Hawaii
It’s clear the money here goes to the Palmer course. Greens were slow and bumpy and bunkers needed sand like a fish needs water. The course layout itself is not impressive. If I wasn’t told I was in Hawaii, I would think I was at my average muni in San Diego (not Torrey Pines). Very little interaction with the ocean as you just meander through rental properties and maintenance sheds. On the upside, the staff was very friendly and I enjoyed them. The course was just a disappointment.
Awesome and spectacular
The overall experience was absolutely most enjoyable,
Pace slowed down a tad but nothing to be close to annoyance,
A positive experience
Friendly resort course
Fazio is a game & wallet friendly re$ort course. Open fairways, well kept, friendly staff & great food @ Leilei's
Old but Pretty Course
Overall a very pretty little course. I came on a random Thursday and it had been misting for the first part of the morning. As a result, I was able to golf alone with seeminingly the entire course to myself. However, this course definitely benefits those who tend to miss-hit now and then. Impossible to lose your ball for the most part because of how it’s constructed. Fairways are wide and pretty straightforward. However, the course is well-maintained and the oceanside holes are something to remember. Appropriately priced at $85.
Great lay out
I played the Fazio course early there was only one group ahead of mine and the pace of play was excellent. The fairways were excellent and the rough was fair it made you think about club selection if you ended up in the rough. The bunkers are playable not too much sand but they still allowed for getting the ball close to the hole if you played the proper shot. The greens were slow on putts but it was tough to have the ball stick on approach shots that was the toughest thing to adjust to . Overall this is a great course and the staff was very friendly and helpful
I have played both the Palmer and Fazio courses at 10 times each. I have stopped playing the Fazio course because the bunkers are hard and packed. I've mentioned this to staff many times and all I here is yes we are aware of this and we are in the process of reviewing the course and making improvements. My family and I fly in from Texas and arrive at the rental house I call for tee times and find out no improvements have been made so I spend twice the money and play the palmer course. Someday maybe??
Every time we play here it’s a great experience! Staff is friendly, course is well laid out, and pace is great!! I especially like the fact the ocean view!! Outstanding round of golf!!!
Course was very playable the staff very friendly enjoyed the round looking forward to playing again
Nice course and worth the money
More than I usually pay for golf but not a bad value considering the price for non residents in Hawaii. Good layout, not crowded at all, in good condition, and nice views of the ocean on some holes.
A little pricey for the Palmer course, their reason being PGA and big break tournaments played there, however the Fazio course was in just as good of shape and it’s more scenic with more ocean views. Also when you book on line they don’t tell you about the local high schools using the course which is in my opinion not right,while it’s fantastic turtle bay opens up for these fine youngsters, there should be some warning just like if they were punching the greens, we as consumers should be given all of the details before making our decision to book.
Decided to play this course vs. the Palmer course. Very pleased with the layout and beauty of the Fazio course within Turtle Bay. Will play this course again and also try Palmer in the future.
Nice course to Play on the North Shore
The course was uncrowded, in nice condition, but very windy. Wind is almost always a golfers nemises on the North Shore. I played alone for most of the round and was never waiting to tee off. I enjoyed the round very much and certainly recommend the course to golfers looking for a fun round on Oahu.
Only play with a discount
I wouldn't pay full price for the Fazio course but for $50 after same day play on the Palmer course well worth it. Strange design with numerous holes on the front nine having a large bunker fronting the green, limiting options. Also sand is really waste areas with rocks and no sand. Avoid the bunkers at all costs. I am glad Tom Fazio didn't learn too much from George. Tom's resort courses are the best. George, not so much.
Top notch on all aspects
Great place, great people, beautiful course in great condition. Recommend playing here for golfers of all levels.
Great course and beautiful setting. In great shape. Layout was not the most creative, but the amazing vegetation and ocean hole make it worth playing.
Great Course, Beautiful Scenery
This course was in good shape and in a perfect setting. Moderately difficult, but reasonable. Beautiful setting on the north shore in Turtle Bay.
