One of the few golf courses.

One of the few golf courses that non-residents can book at Golf Now in Hawaii.

Good little gem

We wanted to golf while on the island and found this little gem on golf now. Paid in full with golf now to get the locals rate but have a feeling they would have given it anyway. There was nobody playing (not surprising for a Wednesday local course) so pace of play was up to us. The prices in the pro shop and snack shop were reasonable too.

The course itself wasn’t in tour shape but I’ve seen a lot worse. Having said that, they did disclose that they had just aerated the greens but they really weren’t in too bad of shape.

Great views, green grass with forgiving layout, and cold beer made this a great day off from the beach. Lol

Great local golf course

This was our first time playing Royal Kunia CC. The course layout was good but there was a picturesque back ground. We were behind a group of locals that could hit fir distance but lacked accuracy. So we waited 3-5 minutes every hole. We never saw a marshal monitoring speed of play.
The staff was very friendly.
The snack shop was closed when we finished the ninth hole. The sign said they closed at Noon???
We go back to play because it was a “resort” course, being wide open.

Great course, but very long round

This course was a great price and has many amazing views of Waikiki. Most of the holes are quite interesting.

My only issue was that on the first par three the course was backed up for more than 30 minutes. It seemed like there was either overbooking or people were taking way too long due to a contest on the par 3s. Either way, it needed a marshal to move things along and there was no one in sight.

Nice layout

The premium clubs were not premium clubs. The cart had horrible brakes needed to apply breaks 30 feet before you needed to stop.

Worst pace of play I have ever experienced

At one point, there were 5 groups on one hole. One of the groups was a 5 some. This is the second time I have experience this on this course. We started at 1 pm and finished 14 holes. We did not see a course ranger at any point through the day. At 6 pm (still an hour of daylight left) a course ranger came and picked up the flags and told us the carts had to be in by 6. 5 hours and we still had 4 holes left! As we were getting in car, we noticed the group of 5 were still playing the 18 hole (6:45). This course clearly only cares to get your green fees and overbooks more than it can handle.

The course is beautiful but it is ashame that it is mismanaged. I will not be playing it again.

Beautiful Course!

Rolling hills, beautiful trees and flowers, stunning views, wow! Fairways were nice and greens pretty good considering how hot and dry it has been. Lots of bunkers and water hazards, but not overly difficult. I only lost one ball! Very friendly staff! However, the clubhouse and pro shop was the opposite. More like 2 temporary old wooden buildings, bad bathrooms, the "bar" had a couple of old tables, a single wooden shelf of liquor, and an old beat up cooler with a few beers. Major let down. If the club house was at least a 3* instead of a 1*, it would be right up there with the best courses on the island!

I personally like this club as the beautiful layout.but the fairway's condition is not so good and the greens too.
I wish to go there and be satisfied with all conditions.

Delay due to 5 players.

The play was slow and delayed due to former team who have 5 players.
It had tl be splitted to two teams to prevent delay.
