Had wanted to play here some 5 years ago just after they reopened but their green fee was ridiculous. Reality has now set in somewhat and if you purchase a package it is more in line.
As usual I went with the GolfHawaiiCard and was able to purchase a 5 pack which included two rounds at Hapuna and three at Mauna Kea for $465.
Yes, the third hole looks incredible, but many of the other holes are fairly ordinary. I would rate it as a good rather than a great course and I actually enjoy playing Hapuna just as much.
For a top rated course the service was not up to par. The first day I arrived I left my bag at the bag drop and rang the bell. After checking in at the proshop I went out to look for my bag on a cart and there was nothing there. I had to go back to the bag drop and bring them through the pro shop myself. Check in was not pleasant. There was an older lady behind the counter, Chona, who never smiled and had a permanent scowl on her face as if we were interrupting her very important job of refolding shirts. This person should never see the light of day in dealing with the public and creates a very poor first impression. On subsequent visits I was looked after by a delightful young lady who actually possessed people skills.
The starter and the golf pro were both very friendly so it's only the shop that needs an upgrade.
All in all a worthwhile course to play as long as you are not paying their daily rack rates.
