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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

I booked a tee time the night before, arrived and was told I was a single....on a day full of foursomes. I started off playing alone for the first few holes, but because the course was packed, I ended up chatting with the foursome in front, and on the 4th tee I asked if I could join them. They thought it was a good idea, and I played with them the rest of the thoroughly enjoyable round.

The course itself was one of the best if not the best that I have played in Hawaii. The course was interesting as it moves through rolling land. The conditioning was absolutely perfect - the tees were smooth, the fairways cut tight but the ball seemed to sit up, and the greens were firm and holding, and a reasonable speed.

Great day, and other than speed of play, possibly due to Sunday morning, a fantastic day. I would go back, even for the full rate.
