Pleasant reception on arrival. Spent time with me to introduce the course. Suggested I play the back 9 firstly...I'm glad. What you see...is what you get. A couple of par 3's sorted me out. Front nine, a lot tighter & more challenging. Thoroughly enjoyed the...More

If you are looking for a golf course different than your course at home, try here. Bring lots of balls as they will find the jungle. Course in good shape but greens a bit slow. Friendly staff that helped make my visit enjoyable.

If you came to Hawaii wanting to play a round on a genuine Hawaiian golf course this is it. Bring plenty of golf balls but plan on leaving with great photos and memories. The staff is very friendly and helpful. Watch the weather-if it's raining...More

Royal Hawaiian is one of the very best curses I have had the pleasure to play in my 40+ years of golf. I am fortunate enough to be a member at Firestone CC in Akron Ohio, and I can assure you the challenges you face...More
