I'll be honest - my son and I are not good golfers so we weren't ready to commit to the fees to play most of the courses on Kauai. We walked on for twilight rates (half price) at 2pm on a Friday afternoon. With course...More

Played 5-24-17 and the course was in excellent condition. Dollar for dollar you simply can't beat the value here. Very enjoyable and very affordable.

A great course, right on the shoreline, friendly staff! You will surely be challenged, so bring water and relax! For the money, a no brainer place to golf!

Great municipal course on Kauai! The course has hosted several USGA amateur events as well as collegiate tournaments. Very challenging with trade winds and length. Scenic views of ocean or hills on almost every hole. Good condition of the greens. Fairways need better care by...More

Don't let the low green fees scare you off. This is the bargain of the islands. They also give you the option of walking the course which, for me, is important. Great views. Excellent course conditions. I will surely return

The locals dress decently. Nice shorts and decent shirts, weather determines.
