Great Escape!!

My wife and I tried this course specifically because of the "Hot Deal" on GolfNow.com. Upon arrival we were placed behind a group of 14 visiting "hackers" who tried their level best to keep up the pace of play. A little on the slow side (finishing at 5hr + 30min). The course is in OUTSTANDING shape, the greens are running quick (not overly fast) but true, and the occasional view of Waikiki and Diamond Head are a treat. Our tee time took us into the tail end of the day when the sea breeze basically stopped which brought out the insects. Beautiful course with a nice comfortable layout made for a very affordable and enjoyable vacation day.

Solid Option On The South Shore

Royall Kunia is a decent golf course with very nice views of Pearl Harbor on several holes. I found the layout to be interesting yet very playable. The course is in decent shape and the greens for the most part ran true, but the course is not immaculately manicured like some of the resort courses you will find in Hawaii. The staff is extremely friendly. The clubhouse and amenities are, however, somewhat "bare bones." I found the pace of play to be somewhat disappointing, with my round exceeding 4 hours and 45 minutes. Nonetheless, the layout, the views, and the friendliness of the staff place this course in the "recommend" category for me.

SLOW PLAY

We gave up after 5 hours when we were standing on the 15th tee. Ridiculously slow. The course was OK shape but for the price we paid, it was in poor shape. They had gas golf carts which means you get to breathe the fumes for 5 plus hours. Don't waste your time or your money.

Great course after the first few holes

This course is in great shape and super fun except for the first few greens. They were in horrible condition. Staff was friendly and sent us out early before a big group which allowed us to play fast.

WAY too much money

I have no problem with the layout of the course or the condition of the fairways and rough. Problems are no sand in the bunkers and the greens are worse than horrible.

To charge a non resident $150 for greens that are unputtalble is a total ripoff. In addition the layout was find but certainly not worth $150 even if the greens were perfect.

Play somewhere else or leave your clubs at home.

I'd play this course every day if I could.

The service at the Pro shop was A-1 friendly and genuine and courteous; far better than any mainland pro shop. Every one was great and so was the course.

Hassled by marshal

Hassled by marshal to speed up. Mind you, we were on the end of the 16th hole and had 2 holes left to play. We finished the 18 in 3 hours and 45 mins which was some of the fastest play I can possibly do. An average golf round for a group of average golfers is 4 1/2 hours. 4 hours is going fairly fast and 5 is slightly slow. 3:45 minutes is extremely fast okay. We’re not pros and we’re paying $150 on vacations to enjoy the morning golfing. I don’t expect to be hassled and have the last two holes ruined because I’m told to speed up. The greens on top of that were in horrid condition and fairways were in just okay condition. Sand traps were like cement. Pretty good views and overall I had fun but that ruined my experience there being hassled at the end on top of expensive play with bad upkeep. We got half off at another course because their greens were being repaired as it seems they were trying to do here. Bad management overall and you will feel it. And no matter how dat you play you will be hassled. Enjoy.

Great Value Course

The course set up and conditions were awesome, except for the greens. The greens were not in very good condition today and was tough judging putts and chips.

The view of Diamond Head and Honolulu were beautiful and the course holes were challenging.

Course in challenging

Played during weekday on a overcast and intermitment rain. Took 4 hours to play, nobody ahead or behind.

Very hilly with flat lies only in the fairway.

Biggest disappointment were the greens. Some type of disease left burnt grass spots and dirt patches on nearly every green.

Price should be reduced until they greens can be fixed.

No "rain checks" for medical problem

My partner (72 y/o) aggravated his old hernia injury when he got his golf bag out of his car to put in my car before I drove us to the course. He thought he was ok to golf, but by the 6th hole, he was in significant pain. We asked if we could get a "rain check" because of his medical problem, but they said: "No, no rain checks". Very disappointing.
