“A really decent municipal course”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 12 July 2012 via mobile

If you're expecting manicured fairways and beautiful tee boxes, this is not the course for you. However, the greens are in great shape and the course layout is interesting with spectacular views of the Koolau mountains. At 6500 yards, it requires you to be fairly long off the tees. The fairways are forgiving and wide - go to Koolau golf course if you want to leave a 1/2 dozen balls in the jungle.

There is no service to speak of nor is there a restaurant. But if you want an interesting course at a reasonable price, this is a good option for you (especially if you can get the kamaaina rate). The hills will also mean you get a great walk in over 18 holes.

“Great Scenery- sub par course”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 11 February 2012

The views are second to none in this price range.

The course itself is not as spectacular. There are no discernible fairways and the bunkers are best played with your putter (as told to me by a local). As a Midwest golfer I struggled around the green here with the little to know grass sprouting out of the clay. It's all about wedge bounce angle here!

Very hilly course I was really really tired after walking 18 with a pull cart.

Shot 60 on the front 49 on the rear

“Beautiful but GROUCHY staff!”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 1 February 2011

Beautiful golf course but staff was GROUCHY and not friendly!
Very disappointing!!!
Rates were GREAT/ VERY LOW included cart.. but Marshal and others were difficulty to even get to SMILE. They seemed only to want to harass.
Would NOT go back.. Golf should be enjoyable not hostile environment!
