Sunday, 15Oct17, 10ish. Paid $64 to ride. Breakfast at the grill was an ok experience. The food was fine, nothing fancy, got what we expected. One person was the cook and cashier which was fine since we were the only ones there but, sorry to say, she was not happy but not rude. We tried to melt the ice but it was not to be. Oh well, not a big deal but we decided to eat elsewhere after the round.

Starter was fine and we had no other contact with the staff. Tee boxes were ratty but heck, it's a muni, so no real complaints. Overall, the fairways were ok most of the way with some bare spots, some muddy spots and some bumpy spots. Greens were good all around. Bunkers played decently.

It's been awhile since we last played here on Sundays because every time we did, it was a five plus hour round. Today, no exception. There was no marshal to keep players on pace. The younger players are decent enough golfers but they are acting as if they are pros. I would suggest to the management of this course to encourage "ready golf" as opposed to PGA style as seen on tv. Golf needs more young players to take it up but the golf courses' laissez-faire is making it undesirable to the long-time golfers. Most of us miss their fair share of fairways and greens but EVERYONE can be conscience of pace by speeding up the process between shots. Little things like being ready to hit on the tee, getting in your cart with your club and take off and replace your club in your bag when you stop, writing your score down while waiting at the next tee, getting off the green right away after everyone putts. Foursome in front was a perfect example. It took a minute or so for the first guy to tee off even though the preceding group was already approaching the green. The next two guys hit right after but the last guy was on his phone and held up the group for longer than it should have been. He was on his phone often throughout the round. They seemed to migrate down the fairway as a group often looking for balls for a long time. The five minute rule is too long if you are holding everyone up. I know, I know, it's Sunday golf but courses better wise up before it is too late. If they endorse ready golf and really detail it out, they can even allow fivesomes which would increase traffic. I know these courses are hurting but they are shooting themselves in the foot.

Played September 7th. Kinda hot especially for bay area. Good walking course. Paid only $32 for walking senior. Grass range. Nice staff at tiny pro shop. Conditions were above average (for Cali) off the tees, fairways and rough. Greens played fine. It's a short course and not tricky or gimmicky so pop was fast. Lunch afterwards at the cafe was good. Beer was cold.

Played September 3rd. Muni course and well, muni conditions. Fairways were green where it counted but many brown patches make it clearly evident of California's drought. Greens were fine...a little bumpy here and there but good. The rough was easy enough. Tee boxes were fair. Squirrel country as it seems to be baby time for them. They usually come up and beg on the 17th tee. No burrowing owls seen this time. Beers were cold at the bar afterwards.

Played August 10th. Played the North course recently and tried the South Course mainly to play the 15th hole iconic par 3 over the ocean. So I like the south mo bettah than the north cuz even though I am a part time resident, I love Hawaii for all the same reasons as anyone else. Beautiful ocean and weather. the hole is kinda similar the Mauna Kea's 3rd hole and I would play here again unless I get a good deal at MK. Sushi and beer fresh.

Played July 28th. If you compare this with the Mauna Kea then the Mauna Lani North is a step down in ambience, conditions and fun-to-playability. But, it is still a nice course with the North not having a par 3 hit over the gorgeous ocean. This course is built on lava with thorny Kiawe trees (Manzanita) protecting much of the course. Nice layout but lacks that ocean shot that tourists seek. When I said conditions were a step below Mauna Kea, don't get me wrong. It is still gorgeous and much cheaper than the aforementioned MK. Good thing I am a resident because the normal rate is $225.00. This course can get windy as the Waikoloa area is known as Waikoblowa to the locals.

Played Sunday, pop:4.15, course is in as nice condition as it can be (muni course) with lush green grass everywhere. Fairways and rough is cut nicely, tee boxes are fine not great and the greens are rolling very nice. $41 includes green fees and cart. Good value for weekend play.

Played Sunday, April 17 on a pleasant day. Conditions are very good but the greens are still healing from a two week punch. Should be 90% in a week. Pop was 4 1/2 hours. Saw refreshment cart at least twice. Golf guide.org certificate for $42 after 10am on weekends good deal. Staff pleasant. Clientele is friendly and courteous. Very good value especially for a weekend.

Played Sunday, April 10 2016. Rained lightly but steadily for 24 hours before we played but course held up nicely and to our surprise, 90 degree cart access allowed! Haven't been here for a long time but we had a five some and there are not too many courses that allow five some and most courses are punching their greens. The East course punched 2-3 weeks ago and it tracked well. All you see is green grass everywhere and fairways and rough played fine. Paid $41.00 including cart. I like the East layout with it's mountain top tee boxes(bombs away) and the tough uphill carries. Good value right now.

played Sunday April 3, 2016. Paid $33 to ride using Golfguide coupon. Course is in pretty good condition overall. Some tee boxes were gouged out and some were crowned but most were fine. Greens were in good condition. Pro shop, maintenance shop and starter were all helpful and friendly. We saw refreshment cart 2-3 times and she was very nice. Hard to find good deals on Sundays especially this time of year when most courses are aerating. Start with a hearty breakfast at Brentwood Cafe and enjoy a pleasant round of golf at Brentwood for only $33.00 including cart.

played March 27. Course in good condition, greens good. Good layout. Fairways are pretty wide but there are enough trees and water and ditches to keep it interesting. Don't play here enough due to lack of proximity for me being in San Francisco. But well kept up course and pleasant facilities.

Played March 23rd. Still a bloody, muddy mess. It will be cart path only for a few more weeks as the course is naturally sloped allowing water to gather on one side of the course in the shade. I understand they also water it too much or perhaps not strategically to allow for less water to gather in the low spots. So for now, walk the course and expect soggy lies here and there. Greens are still fast and fun.

Played here Sunday, March 20th. Deal was $40 for golf, cart and sit down inside lunch. Plenty worthwhile deal. Conditions were fair but no complaints due to deal. But...we followed a tournament as the foursome in front were hacking away but somehow were not falling behind. Five hour round. Sprinkled a bit towards the end but we survived. Rough was very long making it hell finding balls in the rough. Probably had a big part in slowing down play. Never had this happen before. We will find a lost club here and there but this time we found a whole set, bag and all laying near the fairway. It was a young girl's set so she probably just decided enough was enough.
