It's a definite MUST play course on the Island of Kauai. Conveniently located near the Lihue Airport. The staff and Pro Shop are a treat. The bar and restaurant are not inexpensive but what really is in Hawaii, right. It's all there to make a wonderful golf outing. I was able to play twice while I was there and enjoyed... More

This course has the best views of any on the island - the front nine is under maintenance and opening within November. The back nine is the ocean side - incredible views, challenging course.

The new name of the course is Hokuala. It was bought by the Timbers Resort Group and is currently undergoing a renovation on the front 9, so I played the back 9 twice. No problem there as the back 9 is right along the ocean and is stunning. I played this course about 12 years ago and this is my... More

Everything else is the same. Love this course in Lihue. Nice people, good greens and traps. You play the back nine twice. This is like going to a concert and having the warm up group drop out and the headline group do two shows. Ask about the replay rate for a following day. (sometimes yes, sometimes no). Much more scenic... More

This golf course would have got five stars but only the back nine holes are open. Fantastic staff and great golf course. Dont know when the remaining nine will be open but playing the back nine twice was lots of fun. A good challenge.

We played one round at Hokuala and enjoyed it so much that we played the back nine a second time the same afternoon. The majority of holes on the back nine have incredible views of the ocean. The course is challenging but fair, and nothing beats the views. The course was in great shape and the greens were well cared... More

Easy and wide course. Great friendly staff. Wind off of the ocean is a major factor in club selection. Elevated tee boxes make it fun to try and reach the free on the short par 4s.

This is what I think of when I picture a tropical course--many fairways lining the ocean, amazing views, nice downhill par 3's with cliff drop-offs....between the sudden take-off of a plane just over the trees, the swaying palms, the crashing waves, the beach, the bobbing sail boats, and the baby chicks hiding in the brush....there was always something new to...

My family and I were in Kauai from Dec. 18-25 and stayed at the Marriott Kauai Beach Club. My husband and 2 sons aged 16 and 12 played here a couple of times. They said it was fantastic!
