This is a nice, reasonably-priced, centrally-located public golf course. The driving range faces the ocean (albeit a little hard to see, but you can hear it!). Good quality range and putting green for our family. We will certainly return & hopefully try the course (which...More

This municipal golf course must have one of the best locations in Hawaii. There are views from a lot of the tees and fairways which could distract you from the fact that this is a genuine test of golf. There are a number of long...More

Although local pricing is cheap golf, they charge extra for non-residents. The course was in rough shape, no restaurant or bar, average service (not particularly friendly). Our cart had a huge tear in the seat, covered by duct tape, then worn off so the seat...More

I'll be honest - my son and I are not good golfers so we weren't ready to commit to the fees to play most of the courses on Kauai. We walked on for twilight rates (half price) at 2pm on a Friday afternoon. With course...More

Played 5-24-17 and the course was in excellent condition. Dollar for dollar you simply can't beat the value here. Very enjoyable and very affordable.

A great course, right on the shoreline, friendly staff! You will surely be challenged, so bring water and relax! For the money, a no brainer place to golf!
