    Very pricey course that didn't provide the value. Fairways are burnt out, bunkers hard as a rock with little sand. Even the towels on the ball washers haven't been changed in weeks....rags. Really ??

    An interesting layout with a couple of reachable par4's for the long hitters. The course conditions were good except the sand traps that were very hard and needed to be throughly raked. There seemed to be plenty of sand in the traps but it had settled into almost set concrete which made shots very difficult. The pro shop and starters were very helpful and there was a very nice practice area for pre-round warm-ups. The greens were on the slow side and you really had to watch the grain. I would play it again if I'm in the area.

    Unfortunately there is just nothing special about this course, so even though it is in excellent condition it's not
    one that I'd want to play more
    than once. It's fairways are wide enough to catch all but the
    worst hook or slice and although
    there are a reasonable number of traps, the sand is extremely
    shallow and hard to hit a good shot out of.

    Course is interesting but course and range not kept well and service is very lackluster. It is not worth the 150$ you pay due to all those things and not at all scenic and not challenging at all.

    I played the course Thanksgiving week and it was in very good shape. Good layout with a good combination of long/short holes. Nothing too spectacular compared to some other more expensive courses on the Big Island, but a very good value. Greens/fairways could have been a little faster but the slowness makes it playable for just about anyone. If you're staying at any of the Waikoloa resorts, its definitely worth playing once or twice.
