First of all get your tee time from golfnow as you will pay a lot less for fees. Also bring your gps or range finder because they are not supplied. The course is poorly marked save for the 150 yardage. We did see the cart girl several times. There is no starter and we were not told where the washrooms... More

We have played the North Course at Mauna Lani for over twenty years and it seems to keep getting better. This place is in the best condition ever. The tees are pristine as are the fairways and greens. They have a lot of people here to assist you starting out. Cory was a great help at starter and later showed... More

This review is only for the South course as I've never played the North. Course is always in impeccable condition. Very playable as it's a resort course so fun for all types of handicaps. Can sometimes be windy but that's Hawaii for you. The par three 15th may be the best par three in golf.

I've played Mauna Lani at least a half dozen times and this is the first time I have been disappointed with them. My issue is they charged me full price for the round, $225.00, on a day when maintenance was working on at least a dozen of the holes. I was playing by myself but had an audience or distractions...

The course was in great shape, the greens rolled real nice and the views were spectacular. My wife was along for the ride.. and let me just Mauna Lani you guys really take advantage of visitors charging to ride in the cart, so far other course have not I think your taking advantage of people visiting THIS NEEDS TO STOP!!

Beautiful course for sure and the ocean holes are amazing with fantastic photo ops. That being said, the course lacked a bit for amenities for the price. Most courses at this price have GPS in the carts and comfort stations along the way. It's still a great course and it's obviously well maintained.

20 minutes, without traffic, outside Kona is this wonderful hotel off the highway. There are many to choose from but you wont go wrong here. We go often for the day for the beach and dinner. Have stayed a few times as well. Just a wonderful place to space out and think and enjoy the sand. Great for couples or... More

The Francis Brown south course is simply the most stunning golf course you may ever have the pleasure of playing. The fifteenth hole could be considered the nicest hole in golf...period... I left a few balls on the lava and a few more in the Blue Pacific, but I landed most on the lush green fairway and the manicured greens.... More
