Course Review and Comments

Due to the course being private and the community with minimal homes, the course was not crowed at all. Range facility was nice with ample room to hit driver. Wind defnitely a factor playing this course. Fairways were generous for the most part with the seashore paspalum providing great lies. I liked the areas of the rough that was planted in a different grass that made going into it penal. Definitely need to know green contours to put the ball in the right place. Green speed was about 9.5....speeds 10 and higher would definitely make placing the ball in the right place on the green critical. At 7021 yards from the back tees, normal winds would make it play to 7100+ yards. Under mild wind conditions, course would be taken advantaged of. Would love to play it under Kona (south) wind conditons to see how it plays versus the normal north-east winds. Overall I would consider this course definitely best on Kauai and one of the best in Hawaii, easily competing with the privates on the Kona coast.

Course Greens/Fairways Condition Rating
Course Greens/Fairways Condition Comments Did not give 5 stars due to bunker sand still being very soft and requiring time to firm up.
Course Service Rating
Course Service Comments Met in the parking lot by attendants who came to retrieve my golf bag, finding out my tee time and providing infomrmation as to where to check-in due to it being my first time playing the course. No sooner another attendant came out to the parking lot to confirm my tee time. Attendant on the range to clean your clubs after hitting. Tips are not accepted by course attendants. A nice touch.
Course Facilities Rating
Course Facilities Comments Clubhouse simple, nice with an ambience of simple elegance. Flag sticks had a wood section between the flag and pole base. Liked the tee markers being simple but nice. Not the usual type with course name or logo on some of the more upscale courses I've played.
