Conditions were fine, couple holes were interesting, and can be got at a great rate if you do a multi round package. By itself at $149 is steep for what you're getting. Don't be fooled thinking this is the "ocean course" of the two Waikoloa...More

We like the 9-hole option as travelers. Most places it is 18 or nothing. Interesting that they have "forward" tees for senior men-which are actually the women's tees-but no "forward" tees for women. I am finding this most annoying with golf. They would attract more...More

Very nice course but I drive it all over the place so lost a few to the lava fields. Played with a nice couple from Oregon. One nice hole that goes along the water but other than that no,beach, except for numerous sand traps.

One of the golfers I played with said he got rentals from the course. You can call the course and ask that question and get rates. 808- 886-7888. I got good rates by playing 3 rounds.
