Went to play un-'Friendly Hills' last week. :)

Overall condition of the course is really good. Tee to green is lush and great. Greens were slow as the course is protecting it from the heat and therefore they are not mowed as much as they normally would.

Local knowledge is a must to play well. Our host pointed out a few items that normally would be unnoticed and would have caused havoc on our shots had we not known. The course did not play as tough as it normally does due to the slower greens. The greens did provide a decent roll and had only a few putts that should have gone in but didn't.

Kikuyu grass is a tough place to hit from and certainly added to the difficulty when missing fairways and greens.

Teed off early morning so no issues with POP. No one in front. There was a single who was behind us but circled back and we didn't get a chance to let him play through.

Certainly hope to go back with normal conditions and when greens will be more of a challenge.
I'm glad this course is on the GK list. As mentioned, newly renovated 9 hole course. Much, much better condition and definitely kid friendly as this a designated junior golf site for SCGA.

Chaperoned at one of the junior events and greens are immaculate (hope they stay that way). Greens are smooth and rolled really nice. Soft enough to leave ball marks and did see a few unrepaired ones.

Course is short and ranging from 50 y to 100 y.

Driving range with mats to warm up and practice.

Recommended for short game practice and junior golfers.
Was at a junior event on Saturday.

Be advised that part of the greens are sanded. Flag is placed on the good side with greens rolling quite nicely. Greens pretty soft and receptive.

Course conditions are not so nice though with fairways having bare spots. Also, there's a lot of overhead electric cables passing thru the course.

Staff was friendly and they also seem to have a nice dining area. Website can be deceiving though as it says 9 holes of magnificent golf... not really in my opinion.

They have a decent practice area with lots of stalls (mat), a chipping area and practice green.
It was a damp foggy morning with a slight drizzle in July. 54 degrees.

Driving range and practice facility is off the premise. Only a large putting green onsite for your preparation to play here.

No GPS in carts. Yardage books available for purchase. For 1st timer, definitely suggest to get a caddie. Cart paths only as usual. As they always joke, if you want to walk Pebble beach, get a golf cart!

As we got to the first tee, we were given the lay of the land, pin placement, pace of play, etc. and off we go. Greens in good condition despite being having minor maintenance done a week prior to our play. Except for being a little bit slower than i can remember, it was hardly noticeable. Also, listen to your caddie. Dont trust your eyes on the putting surface as what looks like an uphill putt could very well run past the holes and then some.

Fairways lush and very green all through out the course and definitely much better condition compared to Spanish Bay.

Bunkers are well stocked and depending on which one you enter, it might be an ordeal to get out. Some of the bunkers even have steps just to get in and out.

Pace of play was affected by group in front as we were waiting on every hole. Finished in a little over 4:30 which is what is acceptable for PB. No bev cart seen and there was a snack bar on the 10th hole.

As you complete your round walking the 18th hole, you can picture in your mind the different settings you have seen on history books and the golf channel. And with your family waiting at the 18th green... it was quite an experience. Fun and memorable day at PB and definitely will be planning for a return trip.
Played last weekend. Upon checking in, proshop notified us there were a few holes that had construction going on. Not sure why they did not mention when we booked the tee time nor that conditions are less than ideal.

Tee box and greens were ok. Greens are slower than what i would expect and i usually enjoy faster greens when possible. Fairways had a lot of bare spots and dirt showing. Lot of patches where there is no turf at all. Quite disappointed in the condition to be honest. And the course was cart paths only... hmmmm..

Staff was great. Left our bags at the drop. Parking lot right across the bag drop. Our clubs were promptly brought to the staging area and loaded to our carts. There is no driving range, only a chipping and putting area for practice/warm up.

Carts have no GPS and yardage books are available for purchase. Bev cart are not available til 9am so make sure to load up supplies if you have an early tee time.

Keep the ball in the fairways as the rough were deep, thick and punishing.

Most of the holes run thru the coastline with amazing views from most areas. Still, i feel lacking in enjoyment from the condition of the course. Good thing we saved the best for the following day.

At the end of the round, drop by Sticks where you can enjoy the views and the food.

Hope they give this course some TLC as it can be an enjoyable course if well taken cared of.
Early morning tee time. Green fees were $25. Range fee $5. Maybe 6 stalls. Limited flight balls. Also practice green was present although we did not use it.

Check in was ok. Girl working there does not seem to enjoy her job and it shows. Starter was great as he was efficient and pleasant to talk to. Got us out early.

Course consist of 3 - 9 hole segments. North-South-West. Had time to play only 9 so played the West.

Course was not in good shape. I was expecting more from a resort course but there was a lot of bare areas fairway and rough. Also lots of standing water.

Carts did have GPS. There was a great clubhouse but it was not open and only available food was at the snack shack.

If staying at the resort, it is a good way to get some golf in but I would definitely look elsewhere if you want quality golf.
Info here at GK is spot on. They will be doing maintenance is a few weeks so it is a good time to go play this course. Be wary of temps after 10am as it gets really warm out here. We had 6:30 start time and finished in 4 hours despite having to wait on each hole for group in front.

Course conditions were pretty good. Greens smooth and medium fast. Doesn't break as much as you think. rough was about 3 inches but is not as penal as you would think. bunkers well stocked.

Grass driving range/warm up facility with practice greens/chipping area.
No GPS but they provide a mini-yardage sheet with reference distances. Water coolers with cold water spread out the course helps keep you hydrated. Starter even provided us with Mango-infused cold towels to keep everyone cooler.

Great facility, great staff. Definitely a must-go-back course.
This is one of the most impressive golf courses I have ever played. Craved out of the San Jacinto and Santa Rosa mountain lay a masterpiece of a golf course that provided a fun place to play. Standing at the tee boxes, you will see a pretty intimidating holes with very little margin of error but in reality, the course is quite forgiving if you know where to aim and where you can miss and not be penalized. Luckily, we had a caddy that gave outstanding guidance to our group that saved us a lot of strokes. Made the afternoon such more enjoyable.

Everywhere you look, everything looks so perfect. Greens were immaculate and rolled so well. Hard to read the breaks and without guidance, would have been impossible to make the putts go in. Fairways were green and lush and lots of rolling hills and moguls that make it quite a challenge at times to find a flat lie. No divots that were not filled. Bunkers were ok.

Staff was excellent on all aspects. Check-in was easy and friendly. Proshop was a bit small but cozy. The main facility, including driving range and restaurant was another 5 min drive accessible only with the golf carts.

There is a nice half way house that served drinks and snacks. Bottled water was available in numerous locations.

After the round, we had some grub at the restaurant overlooking the course. Food was great and so was their service. What a day it was. Can't wait to go back.
Played on Sunday after the rain so conditions were not ideal. The course was soggy and lots of areas muddy and roped off. We were warned at the proshop beforehand so we appreciate the warning.

Greens were in decent condition. Surprising that it was firm and still rolled pretty decent speed.

Bunkers were decent but wet and sand heavy and packed.

Pace of play was pretty good due to a lot of people staying away due to the wet conditions. Finished under 4 hours with a start time of 9am on a Sunday.

Probably would wait a few days before playing and hoping no more rain :)
Named after the greatest king of the islands of Hawaii, King K is a Ted Robinson design course and is the only private regulation course in Maui. As such, it is a must to come out if you get a chance to go. They offer member for a day promotion so I was able to access their golf course.

Service was friendly. There were minimal staff due to my early arrival so I carried my bag to the staging area. Snack bar was still closed. Pro shop was very helpful and got me off and out the door in no time.

As expected, there was very minimal play during my visit and I was allowed to tee off before the regulars came in. I finished in a little over 2 hours in a relaxed pace. I can see the first group after me was like 6 holes behind so there was no hurry.

As for the course, I would consider this a mountain course with very little flat ground. As you drive your cart thru the fairway, it feels like you are 4wheeling. On hole 8, I thought I hit my drive on the middle of the fairway and could not find it when I reached my landing area. As I was ready drop another ball ready to concede lost ball, I noticed my drop ball roll to the right and sure enough my original ball rolled past the fairway due to terrain slope.

Course condition is great with lush growth everywhere you look. Fairways lush with full coverage. Lots of elevation changes and some pretty tight fairways. Way ward tee shots might end up in the adjacent fairways so you don't lose a lot of balls. Bunkers have decent amount of sand although the sand is of the heavier coarser type which I do not like.

Greens are firm and balls don't stop so make sure to keep that in mind when figuring where to land the ball. Smooth surface to putt which is also tricky as I missed a lot of 3 footers due to subtle breaks.

No GPS on carts but there are yardage markers at 50 yard increments on the course.
There is no water or trash can on course so make sure to bring enough supplies with you and make sure to store your trash in the bin on the cart.

There is a driving range and warm up area but was closed when I got there so I was not able to use to review them.

Overall a great experience and definitely recommend it.
Located less than a mile from the nearest beach, you can imagine how nice the view would be from the course. The property boast of 2 of the best courses in Maui. Unfortunately, the Gold was just aerated so didn't get a chance to play and review it.

The Emerald is the easier of the 2 being shorter but also tighter as per told by starter.

As previously reviewed by roarksown, it was a very nice course with pristine conditions. Everything was lush and green, service excellent. There is a bag drop and someone comes to pick up your clubs. Teebox, fairway in excellent condition. Bunkers with fine white sand. Greens were still healing from maintenance but very playable. Firm and semi-fast. Temps was in the mid 80s but the ocean breeze keeps the playing conditions comfortable.

There were a few blind shots but they have GPS on the carts to let you know if you need to wait. We started on the back 9 which was a bit of a let down since #1 is the perfect opening hole with great view to start the round. Petty detail but it throws the flow of the course in my opinion.

The $200 price tag might be a bit much but there are deals to be had if you look. There are also package deals that bring down the price tag per round to more reasonable range.

At the end of the round, they offer you a nice cold towel and cart you to your car.

Highly recommended.
ditto what Keith said. It was a fun day with fellow Gkers Keith and Lee. Definitely great folks to play with.

Overall course condition was better a few years back when I first played but still decent and playable. Course plays pretty tight for the most part. Best part was the greens. Receptive, smooth and immaculate. The maintenance seem to be watering them every few hours maybe due to the warm weather on Sunday but they were always doing it without interrupting play.

They had bottled water available on the range, on the course and the marshal offered free Gatorade. Carts have GPS and cooler filled with bottle water as well.

Despite having to wait on most holes, we finished a little over 4 hours which was great considering the course was quite busy.

Practice facility included limited distance all grass driving range, a couple of short game chipping area and 2 putting surfaces for practice.
