Great municipal course on Kauai! The course has hosted several USGA amateur events as well as collegiate tournaments. Very challenging with trade winds and length. Scenic views of ocean or hills on almost every hole. Good condition of the greens. Fairways need better care by the players filling in divots. Services are poor. No snack bar open anymore. Soft drinks... More

Don't let the low green fees scare you off. This is the bargain of the islands. They also give you the option of walking the course which, for me, is important. Great views. Excellent course conditions. I will surely return

Excellent value golf course well worth dropping by if staying in Lihue vicinity. It is a local public venue where flights leave on busy times right after each other, without much organization. I was for example behind a 6 ball. Just take it as it is and enjoy. It can however be slow going so you might be best off... More

Great, reasonable rate Golf Course on Kauai! Very nice Tee Boxes, Fairways and Greens! I'm not a Pro Golfer, just a Beginner and this was a Great Course to Play. I highly recommend. Club House, Pro Shop very nice and Clean. Very Friendly personnel too!

Play Wailua once or twice every time I visit Kauai. Nice layout and friendly staff. The only issue is the rates charged for non-residents. Drop it a little bit and I bet you would get more play and increase revenue. Kiahuna Golf Course and Puakea charge about the same and have a little more to offer in terms of service.... More

The Wailua golf course is a great value (particularly for Hawaiian residents) for a golf course along the Eastern coast of Kauai. It is quite long - ~6600 yards from the white tees and ~6000 yds from the red tees. The course is in good shape for a municipal layout.

Now I've played all the courses on Kauai and can't explain why this was my last! Very nice course, well maintained. It is referred to as the locals municipal course but I was warmly welcomed. Don't pass it up, some beautiful holes.

Played one round of golf while visiting here on the island. This was an excellent course and the price was unbeatable!!!!!!! The rental clubs were nice and the staff was friendly.

We played the course yesterday and had a very good day but there were definite issues. First we went out as a 4some and had to let 3 groups play thru - all 1 and 2 person groups that could have been paired to make a more consistent pace. In addition, when we made the turn at 3pm in the... More

We came here after 2 for $24 a person plus cart and club rentals who were also reasonable. Nice course and views, friendly staff. Definitely worth playing a round. FYI most walk the course so If you rent a cart you will be waiting on them to walk or skipping holes like we did.
