Overall a very pretty little course. I came on a random Thursday and it had been misting for the first part of the morning. As a result, I was able to golf alone with seeminingly the entire course to myself. However, this course definitely benefits those who tend to miss-hit now and then. Impossible to lose your ball for the most part because of how it’s constructed. Fairways are wide and pretty straightforward. However, the course is well-maintained and the oceanside holes are something to remember. Appropriately priced at $85.

I played the Fazio course early there was only one group ahead of mine and the pace of play was excellent. The fairways were excellent and the rough was fair it made you think about club selection if you ended up in the rough. The bunkers are playable not too much sand but they still allowed for getting the ball close to the hole if you played the proper shot. The greens were slow on putts but it was tough to have the ball stick on approach shots that was the toughest thing to adjust to . Overall this is a great course and the staff was very friendly and helpful

More than I usually pay for golf but not a bad value considering the price for non residents in Hawaii. Good layout, not crowded at all, in good condition, and nice views of the ocean on some holes.

A little pricey for the Palmer course, their reason being PGA and big break tournaments played there, however the Fazio course was in just as good of shape and it’s more scenic with more ocean views. Also when you book on line they don’t tell you about the local high schools using the course which is in my opinion not right,while it’s fantastic turtle bay opens up for these fine youngsters, there should be some warning just like if they were punching the greens, we as consumers should be given all of the details before making our decision to book.

The course was uncrowded, in nice condition, but very windy. Wind is almost always a golfers nemises on the North Shore. I played alone for most of the round and was never waiting to tee off. I enjoyed the round very much and certainly recommend the course to golfers looking for a fun round on Oahu.

I wouldn't pay full price for the Fazio course but for $50 after same day play on the Palmer course well worth it. Strange design with numerous holes on the front nine having a large bunker fronting the green, limiting options. Also sand is really waste areas with rocks and no sand. Avoid the bunkers at all costs. I am glad Tom Fazio didn't learn too much from George. Tom's resort courses are the best. George, not so much.

Enjoyable round of golf on this Fazio design in Hawaii. Golf in Hawaii what else can you ask for?! My only gripe was that the golf carts do not have GPS and the greens were not cut down enough to be challenging. Overall, course was in great shape and very pleasant experience comma would recommend to anyone.

The staff was very friendly and helpful.The range was small and we could only hit irons that day..The layout of the course is pretty simple not much water comes into play throughout the whole course and they really didn't have sand traps they were more like dirt traps (very hard dirt.) the back nine could use a lot of TLC and it does look as if they're working on it.Overall I'm glad I waited until the twilight rate and used golfnow, it would have bothered me to pay full price for this course.The locals that I spoke with said pay the extra and play the Palmer.
