    Summary:
    I'm a duffer but enjoy the play. BICC has become my favorite course on Kona. Was not impressed with condition of the course first time I played it several years back. Gave it another try after hearing it was under new ownership and management; was not disappointed! Now I play it everytime I'm on the Big Island. It is obvious money is being invested on the course and it shows. Love the view at altitude and the beauty of the course. #17 is my favorite hole and a challange for a duffer like me. The price is extremely competitive for Hawaii. Last visit, took a buddy that wasn't interested in playing BICC because of a poor impression of course from years ago. Now he is a believer and we played it two days in a row.

    Customer Service:
    Friendly. Have met the new Manager; very personable & has done a terrific job improving the course. Hope the new owner continues to invest in the course. The only thing it needs to make it the primier club on the island is a classic club house. There is a proposed site & the view is stupendous. I'd go there for a brew and take in the view even if I weren't a golfer!

    Makalei CC, which used to be my favorite. BICC has the advantage of not getting rained out as much and is actually a prettier course.

    Summary:
    This gem of the Big Island is a must play for any golfer at any level.
    I came upon the course initially by accident after getting rained out at Makalei in Kona once again. Played the course for the first time and while conditions were average the course layout was not. Since that time new owners have taken over and have put a lot of $$ into the course and it shows. The greens are unbelieveable and the fairways and tee boxes are much improved over the last couple of years. I found the staff most welcoming and they have new carts that are well maintained. The course layout is fair for all levels and most beautiful--lots of wildlife add to the interest.
    Bottom line--it is beautiful and a steal on this island for the price of play.

    Customer Service:
    Friendly and attentive

    The course is hilly so compares with Haupuna in that regard BUT Big Island is a better place to play

    Summary:
    Big Island CC is not the best conditioned course on the Big Island, just one of the most interesting. Every hole is a treat to see how it lays out on the tee box. As far as 17 & 18, pure thrills. I never visit this island without playing this course.

    Customer Service:
    Great service!

    On the big island,probably Hapuna is the closest.

    Summary:
    It's a beautiful course. However, conditions are so,so. T-boxes, fairways and greens are a bit messy. Mostly target golf with a few open holes. It's a hilly layout with ball eating rough. Still a nice course to play! $55 to $85.

    Customer Service:
    OK
