Played 5-24-17 and the course was in excellent condition. Dollar for dollar you simply can't beat the value here. Very enjoyable and very affordable.

A great course, right on the shoreline, friendly staff! You will surely be challenged, so bring water and relax! For the money, a no brainer place to golf!

A long and difficult public course in Kauai that I have played many times. I really enjoy this course, mainly because of the great ocean views, but also a fantastic and challenging layout. The greens have been rough in past years, but a re now in great shape. Number 17 is a par 3 where you tee off from a... More

The day we played they had top dressed the greens. They rolled well, except that a couple of the holes had a huge break right at the hole. Either weird placement or the green had hidden breaks. The course is in good shape. Vastly improved from 4 years ago during the drought. The fairways have come back nicely

This review is about past visits to the Wailua Golf Course, I haven't played it this visit to Kauai. That said, this is a great 18 hole golf course. It has its challenges and it not a short course. It is very reasonably priced, especially for Kauai. I've always rented clubs and the course pro makes a driver that even... More

Great municipal course on Kauai! The course has hosted several USGA amateur events as well as collegiate tournaments. Very challenging with trade winds and length. Scenic views of ocean or hills on almost every hole. Good condition of the greens. Fairways need better care by the players filling in divots. Services are poor. No snack bar open anymore. Soft drinks... More

Don't let the low green fees scare you off. This is the bargain of the islands. They also give you the option of walking the course which, for me, is important. Great views. Excellent course conditions. I will surely return

Excellent value golf course well worth dropping by if staying in Lihue vicinity. It is a local public venue where flights leave on busy times right after each other, without much organization. I was for example behind a 6 ball. Just take it as it is and enjoy. It can however be slow going so you might be best off... More
