As much as wind was an issue on King's course on February 20th, Beach course was much more pleasant when we played on February 22nd. Still strong wind conditions, but the course is protected with surrounding condominiums. I loved the course. It is beautiful and you get close to seaside where you can eventually see whales few hundred meters away.... More

I played golf yesterday at the club with my sons aged 16+17. Everett (who is apparently the operations manager) was working in the pro shop. I asked about the afternoon special for golf regarding free club rental for junior players and if it applied to both courses. I explained that I had played a few days ago. The manager in... More

We played this today with a foursome. Pro shop guy was very nice and the driving range was very nice as well. Our round started with the first hole talking 45 min. We spoke to cart lady and she phoned the pro shop. We got to the 9th hole at a speed of 3hours. We told cart lady and again... More

Aloha CMN79, Thank you for taking the time to write a review and we do appreciate your comments. The 26th Amer Ari Intercollegiate Men's Golf tournament was held the first week of February on the Championship Kings' Course. The tournament was very slow playing yet it was very exciting. Due to having only one course available each day in the... More

Overall, I was pleased with the Beach course. A little extra attention to the bunkers is needed. Not near as bad as the Kings course, but still lots of rocks, and has not been raked since the last watering. Other than that the course was in pretty good shape. I liked the layout of the Kings course a bit better,... More

Aloha Schjmi, Thank you for taking the time to write your review of our Beach Course. We do try very hard provide extra TLC on both of our courses. We are currently finalizing our refurbishment of the bunkers on the Beach Course and are looking to start on the Kings' Course. Weather and wind have been our main issue with... More

Higher elevation means cooler temperatures when golfing. This 18 hole course has a driving range and putting green. Good ranger presence means consistent play Well kept up. Downside is that the traps are pebbles, not sand due to the often windy conditions here.

Excellent conditions, clean golf carts, very scenic areas with just the right amount of water. Difficult level is moderate. Paired me up with a great group of guys. Look carefully and you may see the pack of goats that roam around the courses.

Played a round of golf on the Beach Course, which is a typical resort golf course with decent layout and fairly easy to play. I paid $95 for the round due to an afternoon start, which was still too expensive (in my mind) compared to the overall value. To call it a beach course is also an over statement. Only... More

Aloha Christian V, Thank you for taking the time to write a review. We do empathize with your disappointment in being able to see the magnificent Pacific Ocean only from Hole #7. The Beach Course was aptly named when it opened in 1981 as the ocean could be seen virtually from every hole. Since then several condominium and timeshare units... More

I would definitely play this course again. Some winds made the course more difficult especially over water hazards. Golf course is in good shape and loved the ocean greens. I played with my husband and the course was women friendly. We played in the middle of the day and did not experience any waiting.

The course was in pretty good shape, the greens were a little iffy could never really figure them out. The course plays pretty fair if you hit it in the fairway and is a good challenge for all handicaps. The wind was up when I played, constant 10-12 mph with some serious gusts 20mph+ so it was a difficult day.... More
