You could pay a lot more but why? If you would like to enjoy a good round of golf while on the Hilo side of the island call up Hilo municipal. We had a excellent time on this course. There isn't any sand, and ocean views are limited, but still a good morning round of golf.

This is a nice municipal golf course in hHilo. Wide fairways, large greens and walking is allowed. It is inexpensive to play there. Try it out!!

We enjoyed our 18 holes in the beautiful surroundings. Course was not in the greatest condition and the play was a bit slow but it was a good price value and we teamed up with another twosome and had the opportunity to visit with a couple of locals. I would recommend giving it a try.

I found this golf course to be very well maintained, and the rental cart and clubs were just fine. An out of town visitor showed up, wanted to golf, and we got on the next morning at 7:45. There is a nice restaurant attached to the main clubhouse, so we had a nice lunch after.

Beautiful course to look at. Good diversity. Most greens are elevated. Some elevation from hole to hole. There are a fair number of volcanic streams that run across fairways, making for forced carries. It's a nice layout but that's as far as it goes! This place is a goat track for conditions!!! Horrible green, lots of weeds in the fairway... More

maybe it depends on what you expect. It actually is a nice golf course for cost- and for environment. I dont think they have much funds, so it might be a bit rugged. Certainly people are very nice. I just dont want to say it is really gorgeous, and have someone come there and expect lots of gardeners and fertilized... More

local golf, that can get very slow at times. Well designed course, but there are a few spots that need better maintenance

The course itself is quite nice. Its hard to believe its a municipal course! The course boasts no sand (its too wet here to have a sand trap and not a pond!). There are inexpensive club rentals and pull carts (or golf carts) available to rent. Its not a bad idea to call a day in advance for a tee... More
