We have played this course many times and it had conditioning issues in the past. This time the King's Course was in great shape with smooth greens, great tee boxes, and green fairways. The weather was magnificent with partly cloudy skies and mild temperatures but almost no wind. The starter did a great job and she had a good sense... More

Was really looking forward to playing golf at this course due to the high ratings. I was very disappointed. First they charged me $55.00 for premium rentals. The driver was dented, the 5 wood was cracked and the irons looked like they came from a garage sale. The course was in fair condition, the tee boxes need work. The staff... More

Played this morning and the wind was way up so the course played harder than it should. The staff was great and the starter made sure everyone got off on time. Unfortunately the pace of play was agonizingly slow and on the back nine they were mowing and doing maintenance as we were trying to play on several holes. The... More

We had a late flight so we took advantage of their Family Golf. $50 for adults, and $20 for the junior golfer. Very affordable. But you get what you pay for. The course was not very pretty and had a lot of bugs. There's construction going on so it was not very conducive for golf. I was quite disappointing. The... More

As a high handicap player I found the Kings' Course challenging, but fun. The Kings' Course does not have a spectacular Ocean view like the Beach Course, but it has plenty of water, acres of black lava, and well-kept fairways and greens. We loved it.

Thoroughly enjoyed our initial round so muchso, we decided to return several days later. They offered a very favorable rate of $69 including cart, range balls and 4 waters in ice chest to Hilton Kings' Land guests.No restriction on tee times with this rate---a great deal! Course was typical resort layout--wide fairways, 4 tees, in good condition. A reasonable challenge... More

Love this course, but I guess if I were to choose I like the Beach course better just for the ocean side hole. I only did 9, as they had a special if you golf with juniors and they get free rentals too. I found this to be a great deal! We went at 3:30pm today and there was only... More

My wife and I have been playing Kings course on our annual visits since 2001, and have always enjoyed it. It's a good resort course - not too difficult, but challenging enough. The course is in pretty good shape. Like most courses in Hawaii, if you want to putt well, you are advised to know which way the grain is... More

We played this course twice while staying at an adjacent resort. It is only a five minute drive from either the Marriott or Hilton Waikoloa resort. It is described as a "links style" course, but is only links as a vague descriptor. The course is relatively forgiving in design, and can (for instance) be played without losing a ball. It... More

Not very challenging but enjoyable round. Course could be in better shape, but provided unique experience of many Lava lined holes.
