The course starts off a little underwhelming. Like, I paid how much for this? But the last few holes totally make up for it and are dramatic to say the least! You are right along the cliffs overlooking the ocean! Tip: The course doesn't look long from the card, but those winds pick up and the course gets really, really... More

We played a 9 hole round " the back 9", Chad the Golf Pro was nice enough to send us off the back holes 10-18, it was so picturesque, along the Ocean the views were spectacular and the Robert Trent Jones course was a wonderful track. You have to play it if you enjoy this type of course.

Wonderful course, well managed and friendly staff. It gets lots of play considering other courses in Kauai. Rich history of 11 consecutive years hosting the grand slam - say no more - a must for avid golfers...

We could not have been happier with the staff at this golf course. They were there to make our visit a great one. I was riding along while my husband played golf. The views were beautiful on the course and I took a lot of pictures. The course was in very good condition and he enjoyed his round here very... More

One of the most beautiful golf course in the entire world. Very challenging but the experience is worth it. Excellent facility, shop, and clubhouse. Don't forget your complimentary bag tag!!!

This course made coming to Kauai a pleasure. It was close, excellently maintained and just beautiful. The staff are friendly and you can practice beforehand. Carts are mandatory and are included and they even print a souvenir bag tag with your name on it! A nice souvenir and great subtle advertising technique. Well done!

This is a must if you are in Kuai. A short 30 minute cab ride to one of Hawaii's most impressive golf courses. Challenging and fun. A great staff and fantastic pro shop. the snack bar is just that a snack bar with great views. carts have great GPS and rain bonnets.

This is one of those golf courses you've got to play at least once. The clubhouse and practice facilities are all excellent. Very friendly staff both on the course and in the clubhouse. The course itself, however, was pretty ho-hum. Not particularly difficult if the winds aren't too harsh. It gets quite a bit of action being in the south... More

My first time playing this Robert Trent Jones, Jr. course at the Grand Hyatt and thoroughly enjoyed it. The staff is great, the course well maintained, and the price very reasonable. I played on a Saturday by myself, teed off at 2pm, and 2 1/2 hours later I had played my 18...awesome. The trade winds were pretty strong so keep... More
