This is a municipal course that offers significant discounts to locals and local seniors and juniors. It is a challenge to get a tee time that is exactly what you want. But the course is in really good condition and has great scenery of the ocean and the nearby mountains. The staff is not very friendly to tourists, but once you get on the course you forget about that. There is a lot of variety in fairways and approaches. Be prepared for rain showers. The carts are propane and do not have weather shields for your clubs, so bring a club cover for your golf bag. It's Kauai, so just relax and enjoy it!

This course is too long for a senior player like myself...too hard on the ego. They should add senior tees and move the woman's red tees up. Relatively flat front nine with a few more elevations on the back but enough hazards to challenge various shots. Not a country club setting at all but views of ocean on course are nice.

I have played this course on numerous vacations to Kauai and always enjoy it. It is one of the best golf values in Hawaii. Conditioning varies dramatically from year to year, but the track is still fun and challenging. The back 9 is far superior to the front 9.

In excellent shape for a muni course. Price is about 1/2 of the private courses (Kaamaina rate).
