The Top Golf Experience on Kauai; Our 27-hole Golf Facility was designed by Mr. Robert Trent Jones Jr.-in the late 1960s. We recently went through an extensive renovation to 18 (Oceans & Lakes Nines) of our 27 holes (Woods Is Still Open But Was Not Renovated). The new 18 was opened in January of 2010 and is now know as the Makai Course. The new and improved championship Makai course is a breath taking par-72 at over 7,200 yards. We proudly boast some of the most epic ocean/mountain views Hawaii golf has to offer.

The Makai Course plays fair for golfers of all skill levels. There are breathtaking views in all directions. There are currently two baby albatross on the back nine. This Course is so well maintained. The grounds crew keep the Course in pristine condition.

As I recall, we paid around $250 with club rentals. Multi round prices are a good deal if you plan to play more than one round.
