    Summary:
    KCC has gone down hill. The courses are poorly maintained, the equipment is in terrible condition and the service is horrible. I feel bad for some of the staff that work there. They seemed embarassed to be associated with the operation. This is one of the most expensive courses on Hawaii and it operates as pretty cheap muni course. I don't no anywhere in the world at these rates where you could show up to find that they are out of carts, using used golf balls on the driving range and serving it all up with a snarky attitude.

    Customer Service:
    There are some very nice people at KCC but the management and most of the crew could care less

    Similar Courses Played:
    Locals pay green fees of $25 a round and get every dime of that at KCC. Almost any course on the Big Island offers a better deal and experience

    Summary:
    It looked like they hadn't relocated the holes on the greens in about a month! The edges were brown and ragged.
    Range balls are dilapidated.
    It just doesn't look like anybody cares very much, which is a shame, as ten years ago it was a courlse that the operators obviously took pride in.

    Customer Service:
    Okay. Good restaurant though.

    Mauna Lani is the best oceanfront course on the island, Big Island the best inland course, IMHO.

    Summary:
    We played the Ocean course. This is a beautiful open and a bit rolly course set amongst condos with some magnificent ocean views and holes. Prices run from $140 to $25. The $25 is for walking 9 holes after 3:30. Course is in decent condition. Maybe not on a par with some of the major resort courses on the island, however, they are better than both Makalei or Big Island. It's a typical, beautiful Hawaiian course with mostly open fairways, a few forced carries and good diversity. This course sees a lot of play but does not seem to suffer from slow play.

    Customer Service:
    Very good.

    Reviewed by: SureShot1, Shoots in the 70s

    Summary:
    Plain awful. The condition of the course was disgusting on both the ocean and mountain. The mountain course smelled like a bad farm with all the wild goats on the fairways and greens and their droppings all over the place. At the range there is a single 5gallon bucket to wash your clubs and it was lined with green algae. Way over priced. I sincerely felt robbed after I played.

    Customer Service:
    Awful, especially the general manager. When I mentioned the bucket at the range, he literally shrugged his shoulders and made it obvious to me that he didn't care to listen to anything else I had to say. The club is surely a product of its uncaring GM.

    Big Island CC...10 times better in conditions and price, even for out of state customers.

    Summary:
    Played both Ocean and Mountain with the Hawaii Golf Card. Otherwise it would have been 2x the price. Ocean was mediocre, nothing really interesting but ok. Mountain was very fun, different than Hapuna and Makalei as it had a different feel with more open areas and palm trees. I would play mountain again, but probably skip Ocean. Both courses where in good shape.

    Customer Service:
    Excellent, very nice staff.

    Similar Courses Played:
    too many to list...
