Played Waikele County Club this morning the course is set in residential development and across the street was a large shopping center with restaurants and grocery stores. The course did not look hilly from the drive up but I teed off it seemed that there were rolling fairways and some elevated tee boxes. I teed off at 10 am and was paired with two ladies named Amiko and Girlee. Both ladies were from Japan and both spoke fluent English so we had a nice conversation. I played the blue and white combination tees 6400 yards and a 127 slope rating. All tees were in great shape and very few divots marks on the par 3’s and all were nice and level and very green. The fairways were generous and had decent rollout. The bunkers had the red clay type of sand you see here in Hawaii and very easy to play from. Greens were on the quicker side and held shots. Our pace of play was just under 4 hours as we didn’t see too many people in front of us. I thought it was a very nice course and would definitely play it again and definitely recommended if in the area…

Played Ala Wai today and it’s becoming my go to course only because it’s 3 blocks from me and it’s only 28.00 to walk. The course is fairly flat and there’s no real trouble except a few holes where there is water. I teed off at 10 and finished at 2:15 so 4:15 is not bad. The tee boxes are all very green and level however, the fairways are half brown and half green and are fairly firm so expect more roll out and why they are not watering them I don’t know. I’m not sure what the mixture of grass the greens are however they hold good shots but when it comes to putting the only defense this course has is the wind and it gets very windy here. There’s no real rough here and a few OB’s but those only come into play on a really bad shot. Bunkers have a decent amount of sand and ok to play from. All in all this is a no frills course, no pro shop and I have never seen a cart girl probably because the majority of golfers walk and they probably carry their own refreshments. The driving range here does not open until 11, but the restaurant opens at 6 am For a course that’s in the heart of Waikiki it’s a great option..

Played Turtle Bay this morning teeing off at 10:15 and I played the combo Blue Tees & Gold Tees at 6550 yards and played with Gina and Bob both vacationing from Pittsburgh. Range was all grass and chipping and putting area was nice as well. The course was fairly crowded even though it was rainy. They had 5 sets of tees today Black, Blue, Gold, White and Red and all were nice and level. The fairways were all nice and very green and fairly generous, no real rough to speak of except trees but they weren’t in play. Bunkers were very good to play from and the greens held shots very well. If I had to guess I say green speed was 9and a very subtle break to them. I teed off from a par 3 with at least 6 maintenance workers behind the green waiting for us to finish up the hole and I hit it to 7 feet and one of the workers said “ great shot uncle “. I made the birdie and both Gina and Bob gave high fives. The course has some water features mostly at the par 3’s and some at the greens but they don’t come into play very often. Overall very fun and playable course, but being in the North Shore weather is unpredictable but it’s still warm so don’t let that detour you. I asked when Fazio Course was going to reopen and he said probably by the end of summer and once it does the Palmer course would close for some remodeling. A great time was had by all and if this course was closer to my house I would play it more often, I just don’t like the hour plus drive to get here. Definitely recommended…

Played Ko Olina this morning teeing off at 9:30 and paired up with Kim and Kang with a little overcast but 84 degrees and a slight breeze. Maybe I don’t remember this from the last time I played here which was back Jan/Feb but now you have to buy range balls? This is a resort with 3 big hotels right across the street and I don’t get why you have to pay for range balls. Another thing is you have to pay tax, again I don’t get it, however resident discount ( only for greens fee and not food or merchandise) comes to 98.00. After playing this course 2 times I’m not so sure it’s worth 98.00. Anyways on to the review. Kim and I played white tees which is 6400 yds / slope 133 and Michelle and Kang played the blues which is right around 5000 yards. Tee boxes were level and very nice with virtually no divots taken, fairways were lush and green and no rough to speak of. There is water on a few holes but you would have to have a big slice to to lose a ball. After the 4th hole the winds started to kick up to 20-25 mph and it continued off and on for the rest of the day. I don’t mind a little wind but at times it was crazy. I felt sorry for Kim as he was probably in his late 60’s and barely hit it 200 yards off the tee. Greens rolled very quick and true and if you put it a little past with the breezy conditions as many in our group did you would be 10 feet past the hole. I really like this course because it fairly forgiving off the tee and the greens hold shots well and it’s a generally a good course.
If you’re on vacation and you find a discounted tee time I would play, but not for the 245.00 they ask for rack rates.. Mahalo everyone..

Played Ala Wai yesterday May 23 and played with 2 very nice men Ken & Kito teeing off at 10:15 I walked on waited about 20 mins and off we went. Course is fairly flat and very little trouble on the course but it is close to Waikiki so it gets a lot of play. It reminds me of Lakewood with a few doglegs but simply you can just hit it and go find it. I walked which was a shocker because I have a bad ankle but I thought I would give it a try. Tee box somewhat level fairways are some areas where a bit brownish but overall play fine. Greens are a little on the slow side but for a muni course in Honolulu it’s fine. I don’t have the residency I D card yet but hopefully soon but anyways always great to play here and even though there are so many other nice courses in Oahu this one is close which makes it ideal. Recommended if your in the area or don’t mind driving.

Played this morning with the Orange County Mens Club teeing off at 8am from blue tees playing with good friends Patrick, Melanie and Kevin. This Sunday it was all grass on the driving range and after a few warm ups off we went. Carts have GPS and Bluetooth so one could play their music if desired. This course is 10 minutes from my house and I always seem to forget about it. Fairways were in my opinion wide and very nice however on 2 others they were roped off and resodded according to marshals so if ball landed in there just remove and drop outside of it. Tee boxes are all level and well maintained, bunkers had nice white sand in them and were very easy to play from. Greens are almost completely healed from aeration another week or 2 and they will be perfect. Greens had a lot of subtle breaks and they were very good to putt on and they held their shots well. The course I thought was in fantastic shape and I would play it again anytime. Now I’m not sure if the course is worth north of 150.00 is what I believe the rack rate is for Sunday Morning but it’s definitely worth the 75.00 rate during the week and if you have the loyalty card and you are a senior it’s even more affordable. The restaurant is also particularly good as well. Definitely a must play if in the area…

Played the Dunes course yesterday May 2 with Michelle and her 2 friends Shawna and Jaime. After a simple check in we hit a few warm ups and today it was grass so after a few and some putts, we were all set. First let me say I love to play any course at PGA West ( yes even the stadium) because I feel they always treat you like you’re a member and they are so nice. I teed off from the whites while the ladies teed off from the red tees. There are some elevated greens here and if you are short the rough awaits you. Fairways in fantastic shape and fairly wide so one can just let it rip. The ladies thought the course was a little tough and I said I think this is the easiest of all the courses here at PGA West and they all shook their heads in disbelief. Water on many holes some with carries and others where water is on one side of the fairway. Tee boxes all were nice and level and divots filled in. Didn’t see any ball marks on greens which is good, as for the greens I thought they were smooth, firm and quick but not fast. The more I play it the more I like it and it is quickly becoming one of my rotating courses. I was not in bunkers today but it did look great firmly packed. I enjoyed playing with the ladies today because they are fun to play golf with and they are pretty good players. I always highly recommended playing here.

Played the GK outing with good friends Gary, Wendy & first time meeting V. She is an extremely nice person and a very good golfer. It was a beautiful sunny Sunday midday afternoon. Names were on cart so check in was simple and off to all grass driving range. I always love these outings because I get to meet up with friends and catch up and we always enjoy playing together. I played the lavender tees and the course was in fantastic shape all the way around. Fairways were outstanding while if you strayed a little off the fairways the rough was not so bad were you couldn’t have a shot. Greens were excellent and lots of subtle breaks left me scratching my head at times. Sand was packed down in the many bunkers I found but it made it easy to play from. Although I didn’t get to stay for the post round festivities I have eaten there before and the food is fantastic and with good friends it just makes the setting perfect. A great time was had by all and a big thanks to Johnny for all the hard work he does and I would play Desert Willow again anytime. Highly recommended…

Played Redhawk today on a breezy and cooler day this afternoon teeing off at approximately 1 o’ clock. Driving Range is closed for renovations and I stopped at Temecula Creek to hit a few warm balls. Played the blue/white combination with Vince, Mark & Misako which made for a very enjoyable round. The course is doing lots of improvements now as evidenced with some heavy equipment on some of the holes. I didn’t remember much about this course especially having not played it in the last 10 years. Check in was very easy got the key to the cart and off we went, carts are very basic with no GPS. Tee boxes were mostly level with a few a little uneven. There was a group in front of us but we never really waited. Fairways were very nice and green and saw no bare or thin lies which made it very playable. Rough not to existent with the exception of a few creeks with very little water in them. Bunkers nice and compact as I almost holed a few. Greens are recovering nicely from punching a few weeks ago and are a little bumpy but not much and still have some speed to them. To me the course is very playable and has some elevation on a few holes all which made it very fun to play. The course is in nice shape now and I definitely would play it again. Definitely recommended..

Played the Huntington golf course today as part of the Golf moose outing. Checked in with Johnny and chatted for a minute and then off to the range to hit a few balls. I played this course about 10 years ago but don’t remember anything about it so I was looking forward to it. Got to play with Perry, Lindsey anf first time meeting Dave Connally, a pleasure meeting you Dave. We teed off on number 1 on a beautiful but breezy day and off we went. I love the private clubs that have the nice gps and speakers included and these carts included coolers for both driver and passenger a very cool touch. Carts were also very comfortable with very thick and plush seats. I very much like the course with left to right and right to left holes and wide fairways made for a very fun day. Maintenance staff were out there most of the day and it looks like they were punching certain fairways but that didn’t influence tee shots or anything. Greens were recently punched probably 2 or 3 weeks ago still a little bumpy but were ok. They were fine to play from. We saw cart girls a couple of times and a snack bar was also opened as well. I had great day playing with the guys and always enjoy playing with Perry and I am looking forward to the Desert Willow outing. The Huntington Club formerly Seacliff is very nice club with a great staff and if given the chance I would play it again no questions asked.. Definitely recommended..

Played Mission Hills North with a friend of mine Steve who has a home on the 12th hole. We teed off as a twosome at 10:00 and saw no one in front of us. Course right now in excellent shape with tee boxes looking nice and green and divots filled in. Fairways were firm and us 2 old guys got lots of roll from the firm but beautiful fairways. Greens were firm but held shots well. We played the front 9 in 75 minutes plus hitting a few extra shots as well. On the back Steve said hi to a few of his neighbors and we stopped just to get a drink and still no one behind us. The only time it’s like this is maybe in the summer after 12 noon. Anyways course in great shape and the staff is always great especially Mike the starter. Highly recommended if in the area

Played here this morning with the SCGA outing this morning teeing off at 10:25 and I don’t remember playing the north before so I jumped at the chance. As with the prior review the course has outstanding views from virtually every hole and I saw many sailboats along with people just yachting around. I won’t go into much as the previous review was spot on, some private clubs could take a lesson on how locker room and other amenities are, they are truly first class. I thought my group Mary, Cindy, and Danny were great along with a perfect day made for a perfect day of golf. At 375 during the week and 425 on the weekend it maybe cost prohibitive but they have programs that make it easier to play with less down than joining a private club. Highly recommended if you get the chance..
