Played Wed 4/19, 7:50 tee time; 3:30 round as a 2some. Course in fantastic shape. Fairways and rough are lush. Well maintained. Greens are true... punched 4 weeks ago and fully healed. A bit slow; don't know if that's normal or due to punch. A slow 10 on the stimp. This course usually drains well, and all of the rain we've been getting has helped the course. A challenging layout with doglegs and bunkers; seems like many of the approaches were slightly uphill. and no mosquitos today.

Played Sunday Aug 28, 7:35 tee time, 4 some, 4:30 round. Slow going the front 9 (for early time, felt like a lot of waiting, 2:30). Course in good shape. Greens a little slow, but mostly smooth and true(slow 10); usual fairway divots for a public course. A few ball marks unrepaired. Enjoyable round. A hilly track with lots of elevation changes.. don't need driver on more than 5 holes i think.

Played Mon 8/1, 10:15, 3some, 4:15 rd. Nice, warm day with slight breeze. Course looks like it's taking a small beating in the valley heat. Fairways are not as lush as 4 months ago and greens are definitely slower (fast 9). Didn't really affect play or enjoyment. For $39 with cart, will never complain. I had fun, and I still love the track. They are remodeling the clubhouse, making it bigger, so trailers for proshop and food. Hotdogs were the food offering, along with packaged snacks. No tap, but still have bottled beer. didn't ask how long they expect the construction to go. Had a good time overall.

Played Sunday 7/17, 7am tee time; I saw online they had an "aerification special" for $85 incl cart, and a free future round. It wasn't on GK, so I took a chance. I knew they had some big amateur championship, so maybe it was an error. Alas, the greens were punched Monday. big holes, rolled ok, but it made determining speed with grain a challenge. The practice green was very grainy. Was first off, put with a couple, but they insisted I go ahead of them. So a quick 2 1/2 hr round.

The course is a good track. challenging, rolling through hills. Plenty of strategically placed bunkers and trees. Not as foresty as Bayonet. More wide open. Lots of elevation changes, both dramatic and subtle. My main complaint is it looks like they are struggling with the fairways. There seem to be many areas of bad disrepair. Some places looked like they were watering more on purpose,, but the whole course is wet... and moisture in the air is heavy, so why water all morning? Many areas were very wet. Many areas around the greens were very thin (and wet). And there are a ton of unfilled divots. An amazing amount. I guess they get a lot of walkers, and I guess they don't have sand. For the rack rate, you would expect a nicer kept course. (I'm not even complaining about the greens, btw) It's a nice track, but needs to be in better shape. Maybe they are working on it. And maybe the Bayonet is in better shape. But I had fun either way.

Played thurs 7/14, 1:50pm, 4:10 round walking as a 3 some. Nice cool day with some sun. wind mild most of round. I last played here before the reno, and my recollection after last time was "nice course, but every hole started to look the same". I think the renovation fixed that problem. It seems like a completely different course, even the holes that didn't change much. Between how they dressed the bunkers, and slight changes to green locations, it's a much more inviting course, with some interesting holes. I think they added bunkers throughout, in addition to the waste areas.. i know they moved tees and greens here and there. i don't remember the old course, but I enjoyed this course. It's cart path only, so I walked. It's a semi challenging walk, but totally doable.

As for the conditions: Greens are rock hard, and moderate speed. They are in great shape, but they will not hold a shot. Play shots to bounce on and roll... if green is in the back, play the front. Try to see the contour of the green, so you can play a break. I had one shot where I short sided my approach (par 5)... so I had 100 yds over a bunker and about 7 yds pin from the edge. Impossible to get close. People complain about this, but I say, adjust and play the course. Certainly makes you think. My main complaint is the number of unfilled divots in EVERY fairway. I guess this is due to lots of walkers who don't carry sand. We saw many deer as well, which is always cool.

A nice course, in a great setting, and if you catch the right times, it's quick, and if you are ncga, the price is a bargain. Restaurant was good. Overall a good day.

Played Wed 7/6, 11am tee time, teed off right at 11. 2some, playing behind a 3some in 3:50. $29 Wild Wed green fee, incl cart. The course is in decent shape. Aside from some water starved areas, which did not affect play, it's a very playable course. The greens, however, were very slow, and inconsistent in speed. They were mostly soft and spongy. I was never able to feel comfortable with the speeds. the greens are mostly huge with a bit of undulations. The course itself is a wonderful track with a variety of shots, elevation changes, and forced carries. The practice facility is vast and nice... nice putting green and a great chipping/bunker area. Cart girl came around twice and was very pleasant. For $29, I will never let the conditions affect my enjoyment.. but the greens were inconsistent. It is a 50 min drive for me, so not somewhere I'd play regularly. But if I was within a 20 min drive, it would be somewhere in my rotation.

Played both courses Sat June 18. After a 3 hr round on the north, teed off the South about 2:30 for $69 replay rate. Played by myself in 3:15. Hot day, mild to moderate wind.

Course in much better shape, but still evidence of punching about 4-6 weeks ago. Greens true but SLOW (8-9). 4 holes on the ocean, including a par 3 #7, 206 downhill, downwind. 6 iron to 8 ft. Less use of the lava rock than the north, but still tastefully and stratgically used. Fun and scenic course, but a bit steep rack rate of $225. Cart girl came around a couple of times. Overall a fun golf day. Mango towel to end the round is perfect.

Played both courses Sat June 18. Teed off North 11:30 for $185. Played by myself in 3 hours. Replayed on South for $69. Played by myself in 3:15. Hot day, mild to moderate wind.

North course is away from the ocean, but is a great layout, with very excellent use of the lava rock features throughout the course. #17 par 3 features an amphitheatre of lava rock that is fun to look at.

The course punched a few weeks ago. The greens are mostly healed, but both courses' greens were equally unbearably slow (8-9). And it seemed they were doing some work on the course on various fairways. Cart girl came around a few times. I'd say dollar for dollar, the mauna lani resort is a bit steep for what you get, especially the slow greens. However, I had a good golf time.

Played Sunday 6/19, first off, walked on as single, paired up as a 2some. Used Golf Hawaii Card 2 Hapuna/1 Mauna Kea 3 play for $295. Pretty good deal even with the $50 card fee, and if it's the only time you use it. They have 4 and 5 play deals and other courses as well. Unlimited golf each day (of which I wasn't able to take advantage of) and 20% off merch.
ell.

This was probably my favorite course of my trip, with Hapuna a close second. #3 is their signature hole, and almost worth the price of admission by itself, hitting 180yds over the coast. #7 is another fabulous par 3, similar to #6 at Pebble, but longer. Most of the holes featured elevated greens, making hitting greens a challenge. Some beautiful holes with dramatic elevation changes. Greens very grainy.. fast 10, downhill downgrain putts were a legit 14. Wind was mild to nonexistent today, hot day. Cart girl came around a couple of times.

I used the golfboard for $35 upcharge, and it was worth every vacation dollar. I want one for myself. If you get a chance, and you have average balance/athleticism, use it!

Played Wed 6/15 and Fri 6/17. first off at 7am, first day walked on and joined a 3 some. A couple which were regulars and gave great hole info. Second day played by myself. Used Golf Hawaii Card 2 Hapuna/1 Mauna Kea 3 play for $295. Pretty good deal even with the $50 card fee, and if it's the only time you use it. They have 4 and 5 play deals and other courses as well.

This course is across the highway and up the hill from it's more popular sister course. It has ocean views from most of the course. It is very challenging, it seemed most of the holes were uphill into the wind. The first day was a howling 30-40mph wind. Second day was more of a 15-25 mph wind. Tee shot placement is crucial here. Shot 8 shots better the second day. A nice variety of holes with many elevation changes and interesting tee shots. Course in great shape. The greens are big and diabolical. Fast 10, with very grainy grass. the downhill down grain putts were a legit 14. Stay below the hole on most of the greens. Took me 10 holes to figure it out, but once I did, I putted well. Cart girl came around a couple of times.

Played Mon 6/12, 10:30am, played replay teed off as single. Got a $55 replay rate. This is a great layout that could be a great course, but seems in disrepair. It's billed as a resort course (and should be), but it is in worse than muni shape: the majority of the fairways look neglected. It doesn't really affect the play, and the price seems reflective of the conditions. The rack rate is $150ish, and it's not worth that. I paid $95 and then a $55 replay for the Beach course (of which I used Hilton dollars, so a $50/rd net for me, which is about right).

This course is closer to the coast, with 3-4 holes on the coast. I thought the layout was much better than the Kings, but in worse shape Lava rock features throughout the course. Greens true, but on the slower side (fast 9). Wind moderate. Enjoyed the course, as it is very interesting, and again the layout is very good. Played 7 holes until I ran into a bunch of groups, and joined a 2 some for rest of round. Last 6-7 holes had 2 groups waiting on each tee. I stayed on the resort, but for $100/rd, was not willing to play here more than once. Rather pay more for other nicer courses. Come early or deal with 5 hr rds.

Played Mon 6/12, 7am, walked on as single, played as 2some. Got a $95 rate through the Hilton. This is a great layout that could be a great course, but seems in disrepair. It's billed as a resort course (and should be), but it is in worse than muni shape: the majority of the fairways look neglected. It doesn't really affect the play, and the price seems reflective of the conditions. The rack rate is $150ish, and it's not worth that. I paid $95 and then a $55 replay for the Beach course (of which I used Hilton dollars, so a $50/rd net for me, which is about right). We were first out, so pace of play not an issue.

This course is more inland, with distant views of the ocean. Lava rock features throughout the course. Greens true, but on the slower side (fast 9). Wind moderate. Enjoyed the course, as it is very interesting, and again the layout is very good. I think the Beach is a better layout, with better views, but in worse shape than the Kings. I stayed on the resort, but for $100/rd, was not willing to play here more than once. Rather pay more for other nicer courses. Come early or deal with 5 hr rds.
