  • Unbelievable views with absolutely breathe taking views. The course itself was really nice and very well kept. Greens are definitely slower in the morning and will speed up quickly when dry. Tight...

  • Wow. One of my new favorite courses on O’ahu. From the long drive up to the course, you become enveloped in the jungle. The staff was helpful, friendly and the marshal pointed out all of the nuances of all the holes that were going to be a challenge. The challenge is pretty much the entire front 9 and most of the back. It was awesome! There is an ample opportunity to lose balls so bring extra, I left my share if you find a couple. This felt more like an experience with golf to top it off. There are a few blind drop offs so the cart GPS with a flyover view helps. If you’re lucky enough to catch it on a cloudless day the views are spectacular. Even with the usual clouds that linger over the ridges it was beautiful . Front 9 is cart path only right now, not that big of deal but be prepared to hike the fairways. The cart path was in great shape and well maintained the entire course. In fact, the entire course was groomed, mowed and taken care of with quite an attention to detail. More like a resort. It was an overall excellent experience with golf to top it off.
  • The best golf course on Oahu! A true “hidden gem” in terms of scenery and service. World class customer service from everyone on property. Lots of parking, and management goes a great job of keeping the course in A+++ condition. Price is very reasonable considering the golf experience and customer service.
  • Had the pleasure of attending a wedding here and just WOW. Very majestic views of the Koolau mountains as a backdrop to an outdoor wedding was amazing and the reception was elegant. Food was delicious and the staff was great. I heard that the golf course is quite challenging so come mentally prepared if you venture out to play!
  • Almost missed my tee time. This was an unbelievable good course. Truly amazing views, and some challenging holes. Great time, a highlight of my trip to Hawaii. Rented clubs and a cart, with eighteen and I didn't think the price was outrageous (definitely wasn't cheap).
  • The design that went into this course is staggering. Definitely play this course if you are thinking of it. Similar to the plantation course where you see a lot of elevation change, thoughtfully designed holes in lush jungle, and tricky shot making. It seems the course operates at 25% of its previous private course life. No food or Bev, empty pro shop and Skeleton staff. It's hard to tell what shape the course is normally in, a storm recently went through and the fairways were very rough. It looked like they had recently aerated as well. Would pay 2x as much to golf this course if it was fully running and fairways were taken care of.
