The review title pretty much says it all. It's got a links style layout (sort of), deep bunkers, and lava boundaries that eat up golf balls. Decent views of Mauna Loa and Mauna Kea throughout the golf course and nice use of greenery and plumeria to complement the lava fields surrounding the course.

Fun Holes. A few Awesome holes. Hard to score well....which is fine. Yes....the condition isn't as great as others but more guests play here than others. Location...Location...Location. For local golf check Waikoloa Village course....non-resort feeling golf check out Hapuna (very nice but very unforgiving in places).

The people were friendly, and I thought the layout was great. The bunkers were as bad as I have seen anywhere. I understand that the wind makes maintenance difficult, but it looked to my like they are not even trying. There were weeds growing in most bunkers, and they had not been raked since watering. At least make it appear... More

Literally, there are goats running around this course. For $155 green fee, you should expect a nice facility with nice greens and fairways. The outside staff was not friendly at all. The starter was rude to us. The tee boxes were all torn up. The bunkers were hard packed dirt. The fairways were dry and brown. The greens were in... More

First of all, we live in Boca Raton FL where there is golf on what seems like every corner! Not just average golf courses either...some of the best in the world are here. My husband played both courses when we stayed at the Kings Land Vacation Resort but when he returned home from this one he raved! Could have been... More

Played both courses and i will not argue with any design features. Courses are what you see what you get in terms of visuals. Staff was friendly and accommodating. As a low handicap player i was very disappointed with the conditions of the sand traps. For 100+ plus dollars several of the bunkers were so poorly maintained that they were... More

Aloha Colin H, Thank you for taking the time to write a review on Tripadvisor. We appreciate comments and concerns about the conditions of our course. The bunkers on the Kings’ Course are tough to manage daily. Normal trade winds tend to blow the sand out of the bunkers frequently exposing bare spots and accumulate additional sand in other areas...

We played 9 holes as part of the family special after 330. The good thing is that no one was there. Played ok which was positive. Less so the son! Everything was ok but not special commensurate with the price.

We have played this course many times and it had conditioning issues in the past. This time the King's Course was in great shape with smooth greens, great tee boxes, and green fairways. The weather was magnificent with partly cloudy skies and mild temperatures but almost no wind. The starter did a great job and she had a good sense... More

Was really looking forward to playing golf at this course due to the high ratings. I was very disappointed. First they charged me $55.00 for premium rentals. The driver was dented, the 5 wood was cracked and the irons looked like they came from a garage sale. The course was in fair condition, the tee boxes need work. The staff... More

Played this morning and the wind was way up so the course played harder than it should. The staff was great and the starter made sure everyone got off on time. Unfortunately the pace of play was agonizingly slow and on the back nine they were mowing and doing maintenance as we were trying to play on several holes. The... More
