    Summary:
    At first glance this course is unimpressive. The course is entirely flat, there are few undulating greens, the fairways are relatively wide, the water hazards are unintimidating, and the trees aren't as dense as many other local courses. Yet after playing this course a few times, I've gained a newfound respect for this park in the middle of a concrete jungle.

    Customer Service:
    Don't expect a fond "aloha" when you approach the Starters window. Perhaps its the sheer number of people they see, or the demands of the job, or the fact that they have a captive audience, but the starters are just plain grumpy. When you speak to the starter you have a distinct feeling that you are expendable, meaning you are not valued as a customer. Why? perhaps because the are 30 other people behing you trying to get on and your money doesn't really matter. There is always the guy behind you. Do something wrong on the course and you may have a tongue lashing from one of the groundskeepers (doesn't matter if english isn't your first language, and even if you do, good luck trying to understand pidgin english). In their defense, there are a couple of guys that work in the starters office that are very fair and friendly, informing you of your approximate time and status. Unfortunately they don't seem to be their as often as the woman and other middle-aged male. Oh! to pass the time interestingly, try to hang around the starters window and see how successful the "favored" clientele are at getting ahead of the line.

    Summary:
    Quality "Muni" track that I had to play due to it's proximity to my hotel on Waikiki.

    Despite a reputation as being one of the MOST difficult courses to get on...I found it an easy wait on a mid-week and weekend basis.

    Customer Service:
    According to the gentlemen that I was teamed up with, there was a HUGE scandal here a while back with bribes being offered by visiting business in order to receive favorites. I found everyone to be

    Summary:
    Course is mostly flat and in decent condition. Greens are good for a municipal, but not great. A great course for walking.

    Reviewed by: George, Shoot in the 80s, from Carmel, Calif

    Summary:
    This is one busy course, located right behind Waikiki. Tough to get a tee time, and sometimes too dry. Always flat. Not the best muni on Oahu; that distinction goes to West Loch.
