A reasonably good golf course. First two holes parallel the ocean. # 17 is framed by the water. Beautiful pink lilies in pond on front. Greens in great shape. The golf is stunning at $48.00. Easily a $150 type course. Obviously, club house and other...More

Don’t be put off that this is an inexpensive muni course, it is excellent. Challenging and visually appealing holes, excellent course conditions and moves at a good pace. My rental clubs were first rate and got an excellent cheeseburger after my round for $4.50.

Outstanding for a Muni course. Beautiful Scenery on every direction. Especially # 17, a well guarded par 3 facing the ocean, with huge and deep bunkers on 3 sides. Several Oceanside holes and mountains on the other side. Greens were quick and true.

This is a nice, reasonably-priced, centrally-located public golf course. The driving range faces the ocean (albeit a little hard to see, but you can hear it!). Good quality range and putting green for our family. We will certainly return & hopefully try the course (which...More

This municipal golf course must have one of the best locations in Hawaii. There are views from a lot of the tees and fairways which could distract you from the fact that this is a genuine test of golf. There are a number of long...More

Play here for only $48 on weekdays (tourist rate). The from nine was closed for repairs, but playing the back twice was acceptable. The holes are challenging and the course has been used for amateur championships. All in all, it is a fair layout, but...More

Just wear tennis shoes. This is a public golf course therefore does not have normal golf attire rules. People wear t-shirts and cargo shorts, etc. We do LOVE the course however.
