Rated 5 out of 5 by hawkeyegolfer This is a course every golfer must play
This is my all time favorite. The views are spectacular. Every hole is memorable. Long downhill, downwind holes and short uphill, into the wind holes so the course is playable for decent golfers. I am about a 9 hc and a kinda short hitter but the gold tees at 6600 yards didn't seem that long because of the downhill roll you get. Got a discount on an internet site which made it even better but even for full price this course is worth it. I had played it a couple years ago in the rain but this time the weather was perfect. With the Prince course closed on Kauai there is no public course in Hawaii that comes close to this one.

It was breathtaking. I've played golf a lot of places, but this was the most beautiful. Absolutely stunning. The course is difficult, but manageable. My friends would say this is "not a woman friendly course" and that is probably true, but I'm not a typical woman golfer! I loved it. We played 4 rounds in 3 days, and I love, love, love this course!

Rated 5 out of 5 by toothysaw2 worth every penny!
not sure what there is to say about this course! it's a classic. if you've watched the PGA Tournament of Champions on TV then surely you already know this a course everyone should get to play.
it's a tough course by any measure. it's long, hilly, and the greens are pretty small. the weather is also a wild card. the day i played little rain storms rolled through every 10-15 minutes for the first 12 holes. the wind was pretty constant all day. it was impossible to get comfortable with the ever changing conditions. between the weather and constantly uneven lies your body and brain are working overtime.
the course is laid out to make the most challenge out of the prevailing winds... short par 4s tend to be directly into the wind and/or uphill, and long par 4s tend to be downwind. so you never really catch a break and get an easy hole.
as you'd expect, the views are pretty glorious. certainly one of the magnificent settings possible for a golf course.
if you are in the area, and can swing the pretty lofty price tag, it is well worth it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Bomber123 A great challenge
This is a great course. It's very challenging but it's not silly. The views are spectacular and there are a lot of obstacles. If your not an experienced player this might not be your favorite because their are a lot of carries. The course is in great shape and there is a lot of history because of the Hyundai Tournament Of Champions.

Rated 5 out of 5 by u000008030830 Great Test
This course was all that i imagined it would be, very tough, but enjoyable to play. the greens were very difficult to read, and extremely large. not uncommon to have a putt over 100 ft. so, needless to say, i 3 putted a few more times than i like to admit! it ranks as my favorite course i've ever played. i played TPC Sawgrass recently, and truly enjoyed playing there also, and i did score better there, but nothing compares to the scenic views you are surrounded by at the Plantation Course! Yes, its expensive, but i t was on my bucket list of 1 of the golf courses I wanted to play, and was well worth the green fees. Very friendly atmosphere, and everyone is treated very special.

It is a beautiful course on a mountain ridge and valley overlooking water and other Hawaiian islands.

This golf course is phenomenal. Starting from the clubhouse for breakfast all the way through to the spectacular 18th, this was a round I'll remember for the rest of my life. I highly recommend this to all.

If you are in the islands skip all the other courses cause this is the only one to play. I wont complain about the facility, price ($300) with rider, cheesy Titleist clubs as rental... How often will this chance come up. Don't try to walk it. Many blind tee shots. Play the right tee's, don't let your ego get in the way and: ENJOY golf in PARADISE!
