I would definitely play this course again. Some winds made the course more difficult especially over water hazards. Golf course is in good shape and loved the ocean greens. I played with my husband and the course was women friendly. We played in the middle of the day and did not experience any waiting.

The course was in pretty good shape, the greens were a little iffy could never really figure them out. The course plays pretty fair if you hit it in the fairway and is a good challenge for all handicaps. The wind was up when I played, constant 10-12 mph with some serious gusts 20mph+ so it was a difficult day.... More

I felt like a pro! Treated so well, hire clubs were Nike fly vapour, good quality, buggy had an ice bucket to help with the heat and keep your water cool! Some stunning holes and lots of water as well as the sea, friendly staff, well worth the $200

Had the opportunity to play the Beach Course with my wife and adult son. Excellent "resort style" course including a hole with a spectacular ocean view. The course was set up to accommodate a wide range of golfing skills. If you want US Open rough, extreme pin placements and lightening fast greens go elsewhere. If you want an enjoyable round...

-1 going into 16 at 6:30pm (sunset was at 6:50), plenty of daylight and cart D tells us we have to stop and come in. We played a twilight rate, teed off at 2:35, no one told us the course shuts down at 6:30. Had they mentioned that, we wouldn't have enjoyed the scenic views so much and picked up... More

Very nice course. The 7th hole is a gem. Great view regardless of time of day. This is a much better course than the King's course. It's much wider and better maintained. I think the bad reviews are mistaking this for its sister course, the King's. Spend the extra money and go here. Don't even try the King's. It was... More

Played two days here. Found course to be in acceptable shape-a little disappointing for a resort course. Good layout with excellent views. Only three tee boxes? That was a surprise!

Stayed at Hilton Kings' Land villas and played here for $69 as a villa guest. Great price for golf in Hawaii. Course was in good shape with wide fairways and subtle breaks to the greens. Wind can be a real challenge---it was blowing at 15-25 the day we played. Best of all we were able to make tee times 30... More

As with the Kings course, my wife and I have been playing the Beach course on our annual visits since 2001. Like the Kings course, the Beach course is in good condition. It's a good resort course that's not too difficult, but a lot of fun. We like the Kings course better as a "course", but like the views better... More
