Visited this course 5 years ago also. Still a friendly place. The course was in great shape for May. The winter rains may have helped. The crew was always busy manicuring it, but not in your way. Rented clubs-new and nice. Snack shack sandwiches fresh...More

Humm, Hawaii Kai GC is probably up there with your local muni course. There are some scenic views to be had at some holes. I do like the layout and the challenge. Some holes require you to work the ball if you are a long...More

If this is hawaii golf at it's worst, I'll take it. True, it reeks of muni golf, and the amenities are muni caliber... but it's a fun layout, with excellent greens (the best I played all week). You get ocean views on half the holes,...More

Staff not friendly. Had to load my own bags onto cart. Allowed too many players on at last moment. No ranger for most of round. Had players hit into us several times. Play way too slow. Greens were too slow. Will never go back

The course is super easy for beginners. $60 for 18 holes, rentals, and a cart is a steal. Beautiful views from the course and nice breeze to cool you down a bit. My wood broke in the middle of the play so we expected that...More

I found Hawaii Kai to be an extremely boring and poorly maintained course particularly as they charged $125 for a round and charged my wife $50 for the pleasure of joining me in the cart. The course is short and wide with very few obstacles...More
