Usually the course us in great shape, but this time was a major disappointment!!! They were completely overhauling the bunkers on seemingly every hole. Workers were all over the place, and they didn't even move when we approached the greens. It was an uncomfortable round, to say the least. Paying full price during this month is a complete ripoff. We were not informed of the horrible conditions prior to the round too. Will definitely avoid this course for a month or two.

Great golf course. Pro shop,is geared toward Japanese visitors and size of golf shirts are not much more than large. Restaurant has an excellent menu and everything we tried was awesome. The course set-up was really tough for a Sunday round. We thought that the guy making the pin location decision had a hangover. Very tough pin placements even for a 3rd putt. Course is in Awesome shape and will play here many more times with no hope to putt well.

The wind picked up at times throughout the day, so proper club selection to beat that wind is a necessity. I joked that I'd left the course and was still trying to wrap my head around the speed of the greens for hours later. Quick in a good way, but you'll guessing during your first visit.

Except for the pace of play which was slow at times, I have nothing to say but good things about this course. The staff was friendly, the pro shop was well stocked, the course was beautiful and well manicured and the greens were true and fast. Many had a lot of slope so you definitely wanted to be below the hole. Carts had GPS which is nice.

Played solo late in the afternoon on a Monday, went off at 3:30, finished at 5:30 after passing another single and a twosome. Fun course in great conditions, though not quite as challenging as I prefer, even from the blue tees (~6500 yards). Wasn't really any one hole that stood out as amazing, pretty simple layout. Staff was friendly and helpful. Not necessarily one that would be on my list again for a return trip to the island, but I haven't played them all yet, so not much context.

The staff was absolutely amazing, the starter was very helpful in providing some tips before teeing off. The greens are elevated and fast. The layout is very enjoyable and scoreable if you put the ball in the fairway. This one is worth checking out! We had such a wonderful time. We will definitely be back. Maybe next time I will break 100.

Another absolute gem on Oahu. The staff was absolutely amazing, the starter was very helpful in providing some tips before teeing off. All of the greens are elevated, you don't want to attack front pins and be short as it will roll 20 yards back down the hill. The layout is very enjoyable and scoreable if you put the ball in the fairway. The greens were rolling nicely. Definitely worth checking out!

Pro:

Well maintained course

Great looking amenities

Cons:

No carts were available until the tee time

Driving range are worn down mats with no tees

No snack cart

Most snacks in the turn shack were out

Snack shack said they "didn't want to refill them"

No Marshal

Waited up to 4 groups deep per hole

Slow pace of play

Shared my feedback with the clubhouse and they didn't care at all

Twilight tee times are a free-for-all and they don't care about the twilight player because you weren't full fare

Overall:

Course is overpriced for the layout which leaves a lot to the imagination. No real memorable holes. Service is really bad. There are better courses on the island.

Aloha,

Thank you for taking your time to leave your review with us about your experience. We are very sorry to read your review and see there were several areas that did not meet your expectations. In regards to the golf carts, we had a very busy day and yes some groups did not receive them until their tee time as they needed to be turned from morning rounds when those golfers finished. In regards to the comment about the staff not caring, we do care about each persons experience. I received a report from my assistant you spoke with about your round and we are working to improve areas that you mentioned.

Very well maintained, fun holes a little bit of everything. Great to be able to play such a well conditioned course this time of year since I'm from NorCal. Come to island once a year to stay with in laws.

Staff was great from club house ,driving range to starter. Not the most difficult track but not as easy as some course on island. Open fairways but tough approach shots. Greens in great shape. Elevated tee boxes where fun and water hazards are well positioned. Water hazards are unquestionably the signature of this course. Plenty of people playing in the afternoon pace a bit slow. And food the course had at snack shack disappointing. Top of list to play again on Oahu!

This is probably one of best kept public courses on Oahu. The entire atmosphere, to include staff warmth, makes the whole experience a joy, no matter your final score. The course is challenging, with the back nine providing the toughest holes. Mix in 20 to 30 mph winds that constantly shift and, except for the balmy temps and palm trees, you'd think you were in Scotland.

Nice little course, a little on the short side, but not too short. Wind was blowing hard when I played and definitely added an additional challenge. Greens were in perfect condition. If you missed a put it was because of you not the greens. Lost a couple balls in some ornamental foliage that's near a few greens and rough. Wasn't a big fan of that, but I guess I shouldn't have mis-hit. Course is not too challenging and would be good for beginners. When checking in I had a few questions as this was my first time. The older lady at the counter was flat out rude. Thankfully everyone else was super helpful, including the starter and cart staff. Practice facilities were great. Will definitely play this course again. By the way this was the first course that had ducks and not chickens on it. I was slightly amused.
