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.

Similar the Kings Course, greens have some issues with dead spots...not in pristine condition, just good. Course is easier than the Kings Course and thats great...just thought it wasn't in as good of shape as a couple of the other courses I played.

Waikoloa Beach course is an excellent resort course. It is challenging enough and not too difficult for resort golfers. One of the holes is on the ocean, there are plenty of lava fields throughout the course and a nice view of Mauna Kea. The course was well maintained has a nice layout and the starter was well organized. There is... More

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.

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

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.
