    Beautiful venue, but a bit of a stretch to dub it the 'beach' course; the one hole pictured is it, then it heads back in between condos again.

    Sadly the course was not kept in the best of conditions; major problems were unraked bunkers (some looks like week[s] or more), no Marshall so play was backed up, esp. in the back 9, weedy/non-mowed in some areas. A fees break would have been nice since the greens had been recently aerated.

    Fairly open course; nice layout.

    A nice layout with good conditions. Some interesting holes including number 7 which is the only hole that is on the beach. We stayed in a condo on the 15th hole and watched a bunch of players dump balls into the pond in front of the green. So make sure you take enough club to clear the pond. ;-)

    Played the Beach Course in Nov. of 09, and what a fun day it was. I would recommend looking at their website directly to get an idea of the layout, as they have changed a lot of the hole numbers when they consolidated clubhouses with the King's Course.

    What used to be the Par 5 12th hole is now the Par 5 7th. This is the signature hole that puts you right up against the Pacific. A wonderful hole (even better since I pared it) and of all things we ran into the cart girl on that hole. Since there wasn't anyone behind us she was more than happy to take a few pictures of us at the hole. Just one of the many nice touches the staff at Waikoloa brings to their courses.

    Lots of fun lava running through the course, and nice views everywhere you look.

    Not being a golfer that will be joining the PGA Tour anytime soon I appreciated that it was a challenging course, but not an impossible course for those of us that won't be going to Q School anytime soon.

    The other nice thing about this course is it seems that everyone wants to play the King's Course, which from what I understand is another outstanding course, but the upside to being the cast aside sibling is the course was wide open, and for all but maybe 2 holes I felt like we had the entire place to ourselves, which made the day that much more enjoyable!

    If you're an average golfer looking for a memorable, fun, and beautiful course while you're on vacation, you really can't go wrong at the Beach Course. (Oh and they offer very nice Nike gear as rentals for those who don't want to be bent over any harder by the airlines than you already will be getting over to Hawaii)
