Never Play Hapuna when is windy.
This gets affected by the wind like you have no idea. Too many holes play against the wind. I waisted 5 minutes on the one tee box trying to keep the ball on the tee. I can’t believe the golf course doesn’t offer GPS . For the money the they charge they should.
Starter could be a little nicer. Maybe having a bad day.
windy windy windy
it was so windy it was impossible to play shouldn't have teed off course should recommend not to play once the wind gets crazy
Great condition and great staff.
Staff was very friendly and accommodating in the pro shop. Course was in excellent condition especially the greens.
Always love playing in Hawaii, specially great rate & great course!
Great course. Excellent condition. Fantastic scenery. Great design with some challenging holes. The only issue was that we played in the afternoon and the last 4 holes play directly into the sun. We could not see anything. Other than that perfect experience.
Hapuna was fantastic
Hapuna was great. Course was in fantastic condition, especially the greens. Lot s of elevation changes wit beautiful views of the ocean
Played this course a couple times back in February of 2016. Got to use the new surf the earth golf boards at the time which was super fun. Played with a fantastic couple older ladies from Idaho. Course was in good condition and great views of the ocean from the higher elevations. Of the two courses, I would still play Mauna Kea all day due to the ocean holes and layout though....
Great course and time
Went out 9 am Sat 1st. Rented one of the new golf boards, had a blast, did not realize what an intense workout they would give you. You are basically using your weight shift to turn..trust me you havent used these muscles in years. But a lot of fun once you get the hang of it. I can see these bringing in new people/kids to the game. Hapuna is in great shape,tees, fairways and greens. The staff is friendly and helpful, and gave me plenty of instruction on the golf board.
Outstanding New Greens On An Average Big Island Course
Hapuna, from my understanding, recently renovated their greens and I can attest that the renovation was successful. The greens rolled incredibly true and smooth and putting was a pleasure. I was, therefore, surprised that there were no marshals on the course to stop the group playing ahead of my group from driving right up to, and on some holes, on the greens.
The layout, while having some decent views of Mauna Kea and the ocean, unfortunately is either surrounded by housing (the back nine) or a construction zone (the front nine, around which new homes currently being constructed.) The fairways are wide and in decent shape, but there is very little room off of the fairway and penal grasses laying in wait just off the fairway. Unfortunately, for me, this reminded me too much of any resort course in Southern California to be on my "must play" list on the Big Island.
Played this on our second day in Hawaii and what a surprise. Wonderful layout with grass defined fairways. fairways were firm so you got a good roll, but this was partly because of less watering. Manageable elevation changes with ample fairways. Miss them and it was punishing due to the tall native grasses.
Greens rolled nicely and were well maintained. I believe this is a Palmer design and with a bit more maintenance it could be a gem. The cost is an estimate as it was part of a 2 round package with Mauna Kea. Definitely worth including in a gold week.
Fun course, had a great day
Played Hapuna in April 2018. Our day was pretty great, pace of play was fantastic, no one in front of us and no pressure from behind. Course layout is pretty cool, lots of great views. It's set in the foothills above the ocean so not actually on any oceanfront property. Some construction going on for new home plots but it never bothered us. Greens, fairways were pure and rough wasn't punishing so you could play from everywhere. Only criticism is for a resort course they should give a little more room off the tee, some of the tough par 4's are pretty tight and unforgiving unless you are swinging driver well. I lost more balls than I expected but that's my fault due to making poor swings. Hybrids and irons off tees are options in a lot of places but will make some holes into the wind play really hard. Can't compare to Mauna Kea or Mauna Lani as I didn't play but rate is bargain compared to those other premier ocean courses. No restaurant on site just Bev cart which is decent. Showers available which was great after a long day in the hot sun. Staff was really nice and took good care of us. Overall a great experience. If you want a great challenge, chill experience, and great views for $160 this is a great value and choice.
This was a wonderful course. From every hole you can see the Ocean. While the greens were not the best they still rolled relatively smooth. The course layout though was very nice and challenges a skilled golfer. If you are looking for views, this is definitely the course the play.
