A nice layout with just enough challenges for a great round. Greens and fairways were in excellent shape. You will like it here. More than fair pricing and even better pricing for afternoon tee times. Better course and better value than Kiahuna

I played this course once for golf and twice for disc golf so I will try and cover them both. Golf: You can get a great deal at the nearby costco $100 for two people on Puakea after 11am. Otherwise it is $65-$80 or so...More
