Higher elevation means cooler temperatures when golfing. This 18 hole course has a driving range and putting green. Good ranger presence means consistent play Well kept up. Downside is that the traps are pebbles, not sand due to the often windy conditions here.

Excellent conditions, clean golf carts, very scenic areas with just the right amount of water. Difficult level is moderate. Paired me up with a great group of guys. Look carefully and you may see the pack of goats that roam around the courses.

Played a round of golf on the Beach Course, which is a typical resort golf course with decent layout and fairly easy to play. I paid $95 for the round due to an afternoon start, which was still too expensive (in my mind) compared to the overall value. To call it a beach course is also an over statement. Only... More

Aloha Christian V, Thank you for taking the time to write a review. We do empathize with your disappointment in being able to see the magnificent Pacific Ocean only from Hole #7. The Beach Course was aptly named when it opened in 1981 as the ocean could be seen virtually from every hole. Since then several condominium and timeshare units... More

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
