They have dramatically improved the conditions since last time i was here. Greens are great, fast and smooth. No ball marks as the members do take care of their course.
Fairways are ok. Some areas have bare spots but overall, good coverage. Bunkers could use some sand as the one we were in did not have enough.

This is course is a bit funky. Not your typical course as it is tight and unforgiving. Bring lots of balls. Few interesting holes that will tickle your fancy and give you something to talk about.

Certainly not the best in the area but then again it is not that bad considering the pace of play and conditions, i wouldnt mind playing here.

They have a warm up cage, a chipping area and a nice putting green. NO GPS on the carts.
Food is decent.

Arnold Palmer course in Palm Springs that is a must play when in town. Played last weekend in 104 degrees temp. It was actually a comfortable round. Not a lot of people playing so there was no waiting and we finished as a 2some in under 3 hours. Carts had ice chest/coolers with 2 bottles of water which was nice.

Had purchased the underpar voucher but there are deals available. Even their website had rates ranging from $58 to $85 (depending on what time).

We had time to hit the expansive driving range. Lots of open stalls.

Course was in great shape. Tee to green - lush and very good condition. Greens rolled true and was quite fun to putt. They were firm but fair. GPS on the carts were great. We had some issues with our handheld GPS though - i suspect probably from the rerouting done with the course. The 16th 180y par 3 was highlight on the back 9. I thought the 18th was anticlimactic.

Staff was excellent. From the proshop to the people in the grill. Food was decent.

Right now would be the best time to go before they do maintenance end of the month and temps are still bearable.

One course that I have been eyeing for awhile but last week had the chance to visit. And I must say, this is one of the finest local courses ever visited. Hidden in the canyons off the 134 and 210, a neighbor of Scholl Canyon you might say.

As we walked thru the vintage walkway thru the locker rooms and on to the pro shop, the excitement starts to build up. Staff was very friendly. Driving range and practice green were a few feet from the 1st tee so it was super convenient to warm up before the round.

You will notice lots of bunkering but not overly done. Greens are medium speed, remarkably smooth and quite fun to roll the ball.

They have a well stocked snack bar near the proshop and a self serve beverage station near #5

Highly recommended course.

Aerated the practice green recently.

Course is in decent playing condition. Not as visually appealing as a month after the last GK plays but still very playable.

Greens are firm but slower than usual.

Customer service great as usual. Bev cart went around a few times.

LaCosta had the golfboards now available and those who did use them seem to be really happy with them.

Weekend round for the junior championships. Greens are better than when we came beginning of the week.

Still lots of bare spots on teeing ground.

For the price and the view, it is not a bad spot to go play. Will be back soon.

Played here in preparation with my son's junior championship. While we enjoyed playing here, conditions are less than ideal.

Tee boxes are bare and no grass coverage. And greens look weird with some other plant growth all over. Bunkers could use more sand in them as well.

POP was decent except for the bottleneck on #6.

Fun to play as all the holes vary in looks and design. Just dont expect prestine conditions on the course.

Side note. Dont go this weekend as they have city junior championships so the place will be packed.

After the last GK event, we had to go back. Weather was very nice (mid 70s) and just perfect day for golf.

As usual, staff was outstanding in taking care of us. Bags were taken from our vehicle and promptly loaded to our golf carts.

Teed off on time. Course was packed due to the Legends being closed for over seeding. Still, the pace was decent at 4 1/2 hours. Saw the bev cart a few times.

Conditions were a bit better than last outing. Greens were medium fast and decent roll. Certainly less damage than last time. Still had some unrepaired ball marks but not as many as last time. Fairways were much greener and lush. Rough were a bit more penal also. Some areas on the the fairways were over watered and quite saturated.

We totally enjoyed the layout and had a great time. Definitely a 'must play' course and will certainly return.

It was a fun day indeed. Thanks Johnny.

Agree with a lot of the reviews.

A lot of the greens have too many potholes and it is something not expected from a highly regarded course such as La Costa. While receptive and still fun to roll, it is quite annoying to see that much damage to the nice green complex.

Fairway is lush and quite enjoyable to hit from.

Bunkers were a hit or miss. Was in some with lots of sand to blast out of, and then there were also some with absolutely nothing and it is like hitting from a hard pan. This was such a disappointment given the reputation of this course.

Enjoyed the layout and quite fun to play.

Customer service was excellent. And despite the large number of golfers, staff handled it professionally. Beverage carts rolled thru a few times. Drinks were quite expensive ($4 for gatorade). Plenty of water stations and halfway house also provided some relief from the heat with beverage and ice.

Carts have a nice GPS. Could have used a cooler though.

Pace was pretty good for a shotgun and not having to wait too much. Finished in about 4 1/2.

Certainly, worthy course to play when in the area as long as you can get a discount from the regular rate.

played last Sunday in a warm 105 degree weather with no breeze.

Check-in was smooth and easy. using Underpar deal for $40 per person. We headed to the driving range and hit some balls while we waited to be called. Place was full but the members kept a good pace and we did not have to wait on any hole. Finish under 4 hours for our 4some.

Conditions on the course was good. Good coverage on fairways. Greens were a bit slower. Lots of shuttle breaks and hard to pinpoint most of them. Bunkers well stocked and easy to get out.

Halfway house was closed but they did leave a water jug and restrooms available to use. I think they were understaffed and probably cut back on personnel so there was no marshalls nor beverage cart either.

Course had some interesting holes. Pretty easy to walk as a few members were seen walking but with the heat, we welcomed the carts. No GPS on the carts but they have yardage markers along the fairway.

Fun course and will try to return in cooler weather.

Played on a weekday afternoon and the place was packed. Granted it is located in a area where there were at least 4 hotels within a 5 minute drive, it was not a surprise to see so many people here.

Check in was smooth and easy. Proshop was well stocked.

Starter set us up with small bucket of range balls. Driving range mats only, practice green. Snack bar. CArts come with GPS and quite comfortable ride. Plus they gave some Ko Olina swag including a plastic water cup.

Afternoon winds were a factor in playing. Was told early morning is more calm. Teeing ground was lush and so was the fairways. Bunkers had no sand at all which was a bummer considering this is a top course to play and ranked one of the best in Oahu.
Greens seems to have had some minor maintenance done but did not affect the roll although a bit slower than what I would expect.

Pace was moving but had to wait on every shot. We did not mind as the course was really beautiful to look at. There were some holes that ran parallel to roads and can be a distraction at times.

Overall, we had fun playing and will return when we get a chance.

Went to play un-'Friendly Hills' last week. :)

Overall condition of the course is really good. Tee to green is lush and great. Greens were slow as the course is protecting it from the heat and therefore they are not mowed as much as they normally would.

Local knowledge is a must to play well. Our host pointed out a few items that normally would be unnoticed and would have caused havoc on our shots had we not known. The course did not play as tough as it normally does due to the slower greens. The greens did provide a decent roll and had only a few putts that should have gone in but didn't.

Kikuyu grass is a tough place to hit from and certainly added to the difficulty when missing fairways and greens.

Teed off early morning so no issues with POP. No one in front. There was a single who was behind us but circled back and we didn't get a chance to let him play through.

Certainly hope to go back with normal conditions and when greens will be more of a challenge.

I'm glad this course is on the GK list. As mentioned, newly renovated 9 hole course. Much, much better condition and definitely kid friendly as this a designated junior golf site for SCGA.

Chaperoned at one of the junior events and greens are immaculate (hope they stay that way). Greens are smooth and rolled really nice. Soft enough to leave ball marks and did see a few unrepaired ones.

Course is short and ranging from 50 y to 100 y.

Driving range with mats to warm up and practice.

Recommended for short game practice and junior golfers.
