    This course cancelled wedding plans for a couple who had a tee time on the 16th tee box in order to accommodate President Obama who had no tee time. The course management should have told Obama no or requested that he play at a different time. This is inexcusable.

    The Kaneohe Klipper Golf Course is fantastic, the layout is challenging and fair. The vistas as you make your way around the course are fantastic. The back nine comprised of #'s 13, 14, & 15 run along the Pacific Ocean are magnificent. If you have the chance to play this course - don't pass it up! A Great Experience. I was told while we were there it is the Third ranked Military Course, if this is true….. Wow……………. I would like to see #'s 1 & 2.

    Hate to compare to Peeble Beach but the views are breath taking and the course is fun and well maintained. Will play it again next year

    Playing the ocean side holes on this course can only be described as a reliqious experience. The beauty of the course combined with dozens of rainbows created by the ocean spray created a surreal golfing experience. The most unqiue and amazing golf experience of my life.
