    I have been playing this course for years and I like it a lot. The course is nice and easy to access, usually pretty slow.
    My only issue is HUTCH, one of the pro shop staff. He is very rude and not friendly. He usually works on Sundays, and from now on I will not be playing there on Sunday. I had a small cooler with me and he questioned me about why I had it. I told him I had water and Gatorade and he told me I could not bring it on the course. NO OUTSIDE FOOD or Beverages. While I understand this rule it is also silly because they do not have a cart that drives around making sure you are hydrated and have what you need. They have no restaurant at this time either. They have a cooler in the pro shop and a grill in the back that serves hot dogs and hamburger if its ready. This course gets super hot and i was not allowed to bring water. WTF.

    Just played my first round here and the course was in great shape! The fairways were in great shape and the greens fast. Overall the course was well maintained and not overly difficult or aggressive to us mid-handicappers. I cannot wait to play it again knowing what to expect now.

    Very good course, Staff was great and helpful since it was my 1st time playing there. Greens were in great shape and rolled fast. Fairways were cut well. It was a well maintained course.

    This was my favorite golf course on the island during my Army tour: years from 1997-1999. Palm trees behind each green, well manicured course, very reasonable rates, and beautiful scenery. If I ever make a vacation back to Oahu, I'll definitely go play 18 holes at Navy-Marine golf course.

    This course is in great shape.Pick the tee box that matches your game. Can't beat it for a military golf course.

    Course was in good condition. It is wide open, not real difficult. I found some of the pro shop staff to be quite rude and the snack bar attendant had to finish her text message before letting me purchase anything. Even though it was a fun course to play, I am not sure it will be a course I return to due to the staff. I'll check in periodically to see if that has improved.

    An excellent course with considerable beauty in and around the course. It's very well laid out and is set up for any golfer regardless of skill level. I thoroughly playing this course and will certainly play it again on my next vacation to Hawaii.

    Maintainance is sorely lacking at this facility. Especially when you consider all the flora and fauna surrounding it, it is a thorne among roses.
