Played here on a golf outing with the weekly gang. The course has improved since I last played here around 5 years ago (formerly named Luana Hills). Very hilly course with water hazards, rain forests and well placed bunkers. Bring lots of golf balls in...More

This is a great course and a must play. Scenery is fantastic and the course is in overall nice shape. Some aerating of the fairways makes bumping the ball a must at times, but it's only a few holes it's an issue on, and I...More

This golf course was known as Luana Hills the last time I played it. The course has changed hands and is now called Royal Hawaiian. The set up has not changed very much though. We were able to book it through teeoff.com and got a...More

You truly experience a different part of Hawaii at this golf course. It is challenging so bring extra good balls. Course was a little dry but would golf again. Beatiful!! Lots of mongoose running around.

This is a spectacular setting for a golf course, especially the front 9. Very scenic, fun to play, and it helps to have some local knowledge about obstacles and ravines. I was surprised at the lack of grass on the fairways, very sparse....almost like the...More

Visited Royal Hawaiian Golf course with Eric from Higolfguide, this is definitely a course that is different from most you will play, relatively short from the white tees, but plenty of interesting holes, with doglegs and some fairly big elevation changes, course in pretty good...More

If you are looking for a golf course different than your course at home, try here. Bring lots of balls as they will find the jungle. Course in good shape but greens a bit slow. Friendly staff that helped make my visit enjoyable.

If you have never played at RHGC, you are in for a difficult, but real treat. Set amongst the original growth forest of windward Oahu, this somewhat Links style course offers a distinct challenge. Most of the holes feature forced carries and hazards on either...More
