  • Away without having to play came when the owner was Nakajima Pro's brother, we got round to talk about. Impression Peacock played up and down very small, I have built here, including 1 th Tee in (Hawaii), the cart road is long and a little unreasonable. Is the resort of zero local purveyors course.

  • Bring your A game, a good attitude towards golf course design and an extra sleeve of balls. High into the hills above the Kona airport, I enjoyed the views and temperature reduction from 2000'+ above sea level. Challenging course winds up and around through the dry/rainforest-like environment, with lots of uneven lies and elevation changes. Pro shop is small but plentiful, people are super kind and the greens were in great shape. A locals course with lots of smiles. Target golf if you're not too confident or accurate in 235+ shots. Only critique is besides the 150 barber pole, distance to center wasn't well marked. So bring a laser or play with a local.
  • Welcomes non-golfers. I look forward to my next visit to rent a golf cart and having a meal at their restaurant.
  • ***CAUTION*** We were waiting for our ride to pick us up after playing. I explained to them the ride was coming from Kona and were only a few minutes away as I had just spoke with them on the phone. They said they wanted to lock the gate and close up. We then had to walk from the club house to the highway and stand on the side of the road where it was extremely dangerous! They still didn't have the gate closed and locked by the time our ride had showed up. This was very rude and unprofessional. I will probably never golf there again...BeWaRe!!!
  • Nice golf course, well kept and good greens.
  • What an awesome break from all the coastal courses! This choice was a good one. Huge elevation change, very challenging, beautiful course!
