Kauai Lagoons Golf Club reopened its newly renovated Kiele Moana (ocean) Nine in May of 2011. Under the direction of original course designer Jack Nicklaus, the Kiele Moana Nine (former Kiele back 9) received extensive upgrades including new TifEagle putting surfaces, bunkers and three new holes. One new hole is a dramatic ocean hole that joins three others in creating the longest stretch of continuous ocean holes of any course in Hawaii. The Kiele Mauka Nine (original Kiele front 9) provides the starting nine for this spectacular 18 holes of Kiele golf.

Rated 4.4 out of 5 by 43 reviewers.
Rated 4 out of 5 by Lots of wow factor After undergoing a renovation a few years ago, the back nine (Kiele Moana) stands up to just about any stretch of golf in Hawaii in terms of its wow factor. Holes 4, 5, 6 & 7 represent the longest continuous stretch of holes on the ocean in the Aloha State and they're more than scenic, they're interesting. The other nine has merit, too, though, even without the ocean views. Overall, Kauai Lagoons is one of the more memorable courses in all of Hawaii. November 17, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Lagoons A sensational, very challenging course. Beautiful scenery to boot. Not for hackers. Some tee offs required to hit 200 yards to clear danger, lost ball. A pleasure to play, would not hesitate to recommend. Only complaint was couldn't find anywhere for a drink after round. Staff very friendly, especially in clubhouse June 20, 2014
Rated 4 out of 5 by The ocean rules at Kauai Lagoons Change has been a constant for Kauai Lagoons Golf Club, the only Jack Nicklaus design on Kauai. Nicklaus originally designed 36 holes before constant tinkering cut the course to just 18 holes for awhile. A renovation completed in May 2011 brought the club back to 27 holes and, more important, created the longest continuous stretch of ocean holes in Hawaii. Work also upgraded bunkers, moved several traps around and put Tif-eagle grass on the greens. Golfweek ranked Kauai Lagoons eighth among the top public golf courses in Hawaii in 2013. Sweeping views of the Pacific and beautiful bays highlight the Kiele Moana nine (translating to "ocean"). The trade winds really kick into high gear on this nine, making the ocean holes from nos. 4-7 play ultra tough. The Kiele Course's front nine -- named Mauka, which means "to the mountains" -- crawls through the jungle. This demanding par-37 loop features three par 5s in the first six holes. A new back tee on the fourth hole turned a monstrous par 4 into a reachable par 5. The do-or-die tee shot at the par-3 fifth hole might seem tough until you reach the feared 18th hole, a 459-yard par 4 playing into the howling trade winds with water up the right side and jungle along the left. It takes an all-carry poke over the water to reach the green. January 29, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by One of my favorite Nicklaus designs It's tough not to fall in love with any golf course on Kauai and particularly here, which has such a unique setting. The course winds through both forest and jungle, not to mention some man-made lagoons from the resort's more opulent days. It's good to see the course is finally wrapping up its long transition period and the oceanfront holes are back. But I still really love a lot of the front nine holes that play more inland. All-in-all, it's one of the more playable Nicklaus resort courses you'll play (and you're Hawaii, so that's kind of the point). January 2, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by This course was one of our all time favorites. You can't beat the views on the back nine. The front nine with the tropical landscaping is scenic too. The entire course was in pristine condition and the staff was extremely friendly. The starter did an excellent job spacing groups so we were never bunched up. We got a terrific Sunday rate which made it even better. If you are traveling to Kauai this is a must. September 3, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Excellent top notch course. The course is in excellent condition. Staff is great. Some holes along the coast are spectacular. It is a long and challenging course. August 28, 2013
Rated 4 out of 5 by Great shape We enjoyed ourselves very much! Course was in good shape! August 5, 2013
Rated 4 out of 5 by Sunday at the Kauia Logoons Good rate on Sunday special. Course in good shape, greens rolling fairly fast. Pace of play fairly good. Not an easy course, need to hit it good to score well. Not sure that I would come back at the $165 rate, other options on Kauia at a better rate. August 5, 2013
