Golf Advisor: Top Courses in Hawaii
A decent course in a nice setting
This is a solid golf course but nothing special stands out, other than some great views. I liked it but these 5-star ratings seem way off to me. For a course located right on the ocean, there are very few holes where you see the water. The bunkering is well done with large bunkers protecting elevated greens and good green complexes. It has mostly straightforward fairways with a few on the back-9 that have some undulations and rolling terrain. The front is mostly flat. Walkable course. I met a bunch of fun locals playing and this is a casual "ready-golf" environment.
This course is the best value in Hawaii
Played here 3 times while in Kauai. Pace of play was pretty good considering that this course is busy all the time. Really enjoyed playing this course and there is some incredible views along some of the holes.
The wife and I played here on our honeymoon years back... You could pay 3 times as much at off-peak times and still won't get your monies worth as you can here.
Watch out for the roosters EVERYWHERE when hitting into some greens!
The beach is BEAUTIFUL right next to the course and the layout is fun and not that daunting!
The kicker here is the PEOPLE working there - they bought us a few coronas after the round and were asking us tons of questions... such a great friendly atmosphere! So laid back and genuine!
It's a MUST play when you can get there!
Any trip to Kauai must include Wailua
At $48 for outsiders, Wailua is a bargain, but you should play it for much more than that. This historic golf course is a find at almost any price. Sure it can get crowded, but the views and feel of Wailua are unlike anything else in Hawaii. Here, you get to mingle with the locals while playing a championship level and historic course. The views alone are worth more than the green fee, but this track has all kinds of challenges, including a good bit of elevation change on the back nine.
I played Wailua for the first time in September. Was joined up with a guy, same first name. This round was meant to be. For under $50 with cart (wife riding for FREE), this is an outstanding value!!! The twilight rate after 2 p.m. , when I played, is a fraction of the almost $200 to play onsite at Princeville, where we stayed for the week. Wailua is a player-friendly course, allowing spots on each hole to safely play to. The conditions are excellent. The views are amazing, with 3 holes along the ocean. The 17th, a downhill par 3 with the Pacific beckoning, is THE prettiest hole ever!!! My playing partner and I both hit our tee shots onto the green, scoring 3's!!!! This is a spot that you stand in awe, bring your camera (see attached photo), and count your blessings for this game!!! The staff is friendly and provided a great full set of rental clubs. I would highly recommend this course to anyone.
Great golf course right along the ocean. Lots of interesting holes in a tropical setting with palm trees swaying in the fresh ocean breeze. Forward tees ( at almost 6000 yards) maybe a little longer than most women are used to. Fairways and greens were in great shape. Today, my wife and I had a wonderful time playing very affordable golf in paradise,
a pleasant surprise
This course was recommended by our driver. "Nothing fancy, just a nice municipal course worth it's money", we were told and that proved true. This course is in an old coconut plantation at the Pacific shore. You here the waves calling constantly. Kauai is in paradise and therefore so is this course. A lot of fun for a mere $48.
