I've read the Jurassic Park stuff and some people say it's tricky with blind shots, etc. Our foursome, who was at a convention at Kahala, thought it was a fun morning of golf. We were able to get a nice early tee time to make...More

The better the golfer you are, the more you will hate this course. It's a freak-show of forced carries, jungle 10 yards off the fairway, and lost golf balls. May be good if you ever wanted to play a 3-club round (say 5 iron, wedge,...More

Great course that plays hard set in the forest. Really beautiful. Some beautiful holes. Expensive but worth it

The front 9 are much tougher and very narrow. BRING EXTRA BALLS! The back nine are more playable but still very beautiful. We found the course in good condition, well maintained (slow greens). The facility was nice, staff was very friendly. And after playing there...More

I've played Royal Hawaiian a few times over the years when visiting Oahu from Australia. The course is very tough but a beautiful scenic layout. Sadly a high handicapper will really struggle here. If your a single marker you'll love it. In saying that I...More

A well maintained challenging golf course with a true Hawaiian feel. You are playing in the rain forest, very jungle like, yet not buggy at all. A hike to get there from Ko Olina, but well worth it.
