Returned after several years

This is a great course for the money. The layout is good, course conditions were great. Pace of play was very slow. We had a foursome in front of us that had to be 2 holes behind. It finally became so frustrating that we skipped a hole so that we could finish in a reasonable time. No marshalls. It would have been a 5 1/2 +++ round if we wouldn't have skipped a hole. But it was a holiday weekend and rookies were out.

Must play on Kauai !!

Do not mistake the fact that this is not a "resort" course. Plays in the natural surroundings with plenty of variety on each hole. Greens are in excellent shape.

Great Golf especially for the money in Hawaii

The course was in great condition with beautiful views and interesting holes. Pace of play was good. Practice range was okay not great. Got a good tuna sandwich for a reasonable price with chips included. One negative was the lack of covers for clubs on the carts and with a bit of rain during the round that was somewhat concerning. But overall it was a good track.

Maybe the best deal in Kauai?

Played this course twice. After six nice but standard hole, we get to a more hilly part, and we’re in for a great ride. The back nine is very solid, specially the 11 to 18 hole where you have to think your way on a very good design . Golf is not cheap in Kauai but at 85$ this is a very good deal. Also the café is a popular spot and the food is good.
