Best course I've played.

Holes 13 and 14 gave me the impression I was playing conditions similar to what the pros face at Pebble Beach - Pacific Ocean to the right, with winds coming off shore. Beautiful course, challenging elevation changes

Greens are dying - Feb 18

This was the 4th time I played the course at USMC Kaneohe. The staff is not friendly at all but expect no less at any military course, customer service is not a goal. The greens have been dying for many months but now several are dead and one of the par 3’s, #4 is now a temporary green in front of the dead green. Several more greens are basically sand and dirt and only certain parts of the green are usable. Not sure if this is a fungus or fertilizer treatment issue. Sad to see this happen to a great layout. No information is available on their web site or at the course on the problem area or possible solutions for this dilemma.

Gem of a military course

Back nine on the ocean are as dramatic as you can get. Beautiful finishing holes. As most military courses the price was right and it was certainly worthy of playing on a two week trip to Hawaii and four islands.

Windy weather

Fabulous back 9; all tough in the wind

Lucky enough to link up with a former Naval Commander and get access to Kaneohe. Quite a busy course. Played on a very windy day. and only a couple of holes were with the wind, several against, but mostly a crosswind.- a two club crosswind! Front 9 was pretty basic, but the back 9 was super, with several holes right along the water. Great views, and very difficult shots with the crosswind. On a calm day, probably not overly challenging, but a good course with some stunning views. I'd like another crack at it!

Poor mans Pebble Beach

Fantastic Billy Bell design, at least for the back nine that plays along the ocean and dunes. The front nine, not so special, playing mostly flat through filled marshland. Pace of play is very slow, as Kodak moments along the ocean holes, as well as fully booked tee sheets, slow things way down. Trade winds dominate, as in most Hawaiian courses.

" A Real Gem"

This place is incredible….from the facilities, staff, course, conditions, etc, etc, etc. I played here every Saturday and many other days for the last 3 years. Truly a real treat. The club manager Todd M. and his team are second to none. The course is always in great shape from greens, to views, etc. Alway plays quite difficult because of the wind. Challenging but very fun….
