Below average and over priced bone shaking cart paths

Its Hawaii the sun is shining and the weather is perfect. Shame about the experience at this course. On first greeting via phone and in person the lady receptionist / front desk was unfriendly and bordering rude. The course and cart paths are in terrible shape. The cost was $67 and worth about $30. Great location with an amazing energy with the mountains and ocean (distant view). Could be good to great but actually poor. No bar just a fridge. 4 handicap - tight holes but not very tough, mostly driver wedge par 4's from the tips. Pay the extra and pay $100 to play somewhere memorable.

Great course for value

A very scenic course for a reasonable fee. The greens were better than the other two I have played at a much higher rate. Course was not busy-as a single I could play holes again.

Course near me

The cart paths definately need a lot of work. Easier to get on grass as soon as possible. Love the course layout but hardly a level lie to be found. Even steep enough to make it hard to get the ball up on many holes. Beautiful views of ocean and mountains plus the tropical hues of many trees. Depending upon when you come it can be slow going but generally it moves along OK unless you are behind beginners. Compared to all but the military courses it is a reasonable value.

Course is in terrible shape

The greens were the worst on the island by far. Almost had to play automatic 2 putts. Definitely will not go back even though it is as cheap as it comes for non locals.

This course is ok to play once

Some of the views at this course were spectacular. Disappointed in the greens. Didn’t seem to be well maintained & certainly did not roll well. For the premium you pay as a visitor, not sure it’s worth it.

Makaha Country Club

A little out of the way but a good golf course.

Too bad they did not have more money for maintaence. The bunkers need work as do the cart paths.

If those things were fixed it would be great.

Needs some love, but still fun.

3rd time to play course in the past 15 years as I'm from the Mainland. The cart paths still need to be fixed...so what. Green fees are reasonable, rental clubs are in good shape and reasonable ($48 with tax), the fairways are nice, not perfect, but nice, the are greens fun...they will break uphill towards the ocean, sounds crazy, but it does happen. Views of surrounding mountains are beautiful. Staff was friendly. Pace of play was under 4 hrs on day I played. I think some expect too much as I read some of the negative reviews as this is a local course and NOT a resort course. Go and have good time and appreciate the fact you not paying overpriced resort fees.

Avoid this course

I've heard of goat tracks but, this was a chicken tract. Literally first tee box had 10 chickens on it and the course was in horrible shape. Greens are very bad along with rest of course. The cart paths are great if you like off roading. On the plus side it's super cheap as far as out of state hawaii golf goes but, I wouldn't play it again for free.

Fun round

Standing on first tee as a single was asked to join a threesome , they too were also from Washington state. But they being retired live in Hawaii for extended periods so this was there home course. Friendly group and helpful, course knowledge was nice. Agree the views of the ocean and mountains were nice, I always prefer courses without homes bordering the course and that makes this one an added benefit. I do agree on how rough the cart paths are. Finally a very friendly staff in all areas.

Friendly staff

The course is great, beautifully situated in a valley between mountains and a view of the ocean from some holes. The pace of play is casual so it makes for an extremely relaxing day. The carts are well maintained. The only negative thing I have to say is the cart paths are really bumpy and needs patching or repaving (parking lot too).

Very fun course

Very well layed out course. Enjoyed playing it with excellent scenery. Not as well maintained as a resort course, but far superior in layout and playability. Staff was great, especially the starter. Gave me a few tips that helped out. Driving range is servicable along with the practice green. My only real complaint was the sand traps and cart paths. Do not drive fast on the cart paths, they are so bad they'll rattle your fillings loose. Sand traps were absolutely terrible. It was like hitting off of hard barren dirt. I don't think they've been raked or had sand added in years. For the 30 dollars I paid it was a bargain. Will definitely play this course again.

Aging Course Needs TLC

Makaha CC is an older course with a somewhat challenging layout. Although the fairways are in good condition the greens are quite inconsistent and in need of renovation. The staff is top rate and very friendly.

Great Hawaii value

Somewhat hilly but made for great views of the mountains, valley and ocean. Not very long but the greens very tricky to read. Friendly staff including the cats and chickens.

Simply Great

I did book a tee-off at 0700 am, I was alone, watching the sunrise.
The course is located in a wonderful surrounding, and is a great shape.
I truly did enjoy.

Good value

Course was priced pretty well for Hawaii and the course was in really nice shape.

Greens were slower then expected, but if you had a downhill put they ran...

Carts were kind of rough as are the cart paths.

Overall a really great course for the money and a nice relaxing round - I would play it again - good value
