Very nice course but I drive it all over the place so lost a few to the lava fields. Played with a nice couple from Oregon. One nice hole that goes along the water but other than that no,beach, except for numerous sand traps.

Similar the Kings Course, greens have some issues with dead spots...not in pristine condition, just good. Course is easier than the Kings Course and thats great...just thought it wasn't in as good of shape as a couple of the other courses I played.More

Waikoloa Beach course is an excellent resort course. It is challenging enough and not too difficult for resort golfers. One of the holes is on the ocean, there are plenty of lava fields throughout the course and a nice view of Mauna Kea. The course...More

One of the golfers I played with said he got rentals from the course. You can call the course and ask that question and get rates. 808- 886-7888. I got good rates by playing 3 rounds.
