    Summary:
    Beautiful course, very green and lush jungle all around. Very well maintained. Not sure I've ever golfed a prettier course. Twilight fees after 1 pm, only $55, with $20 for rentals

    Customer Service:
    Excellent, staff was very friendly, food is not bad for a small kitchen.

    Reviewed by: R Dworkis, Shoots in the 80s

    Summary:
    Played the course for the first time in several years after a poor experience so I wasn't sure what to expect. I was overwhelmed with the condition and playability of the course. excellent condition of the course; tees, fairways, and greens. Traps could use some "fluffing up". With the course in financial hardship the ground crew has somehow found the formula to get the course in shape.

    And I had forgot how beautiful the layout is and with distant views of the ocean and the drive between holes through the jungle. Unlike any other course I have played on the Big Island.

    Customer Service:
    Checking desk lady needs more enthusiasm, but starter, cart man, beverage cart, and snack bar were very upbeat and polite. Definite asset to the course.

    Similar Courses Played:
    Waikoloa Village, Mauna Lani North and South, Big Island CC, Volcano, Hualalei, and Hapuna.

    Summary:
    bobemac makes some good points. This is a mountain course. Lots of up or down fairways. Mostly target golf. However, it is a fair course and you will need to play this course several times to get a feel for it. Conditions are so, so. T-boxes, fairways and greens tend to thin and chopped up. It's beautiful course to look at. $55 to 85.

    Customer Service:
    OK

    Summary:
    Great course. Up in the mountains where is nice and cool. Elevation changes are about as severe as I have seen. Pretty much all uphill on the front 9 and all downhill on the back. Interesting holes and in pretty decent shape. Great value for the price.

    Customer Service:
    Excellent, golf shop people are extra nice.

    Summary:
    It was really humid in Kona and about 95* or so it felt, but I was looking forward to playing up at Makalei to see just exactly was it was like....7/30/09....The guy at the front desk was very personable...a guy who liked to golf, not a smiley faced phoney yes-man there just to take your money..he was very helpful, patient, and efficient.....I was able to go to the tee after I putted a while to get used to the greens but didn't really know what to expect on the course....well, it was in beautiful condition, very trimmed, the greens were perfection, the hedges very neat, the peacocks in great form, the fairways very tightly mowed...plus it was an extraordinary fun place to play...all the holes were some extreme or another up or down, winding and twisting..like a roller coaster inside a house of mirrors...great fun....can't wait to come back and play again...

    Customer Service:
    fabulous, friendly, patient, efficient.

    Similar Courses Played:
    Big Island CC.
