The Second course at turtle Bay is a pretty simple straightforward course in need of some Fairway work. I believe they are beginning to make improvements but still have a ways to go to get it up to a high quality course. They can certainly do some work on the bathrooms as well as the fairways and the signage.

You need to select the right set of tees on this course. I normally play whites, but was paired with a gentleman who played blues and opted to join him. Tough course! First few holes are almost guaranteed to be into the wind. You need a knockdown shot or the wind will own you.

Scenery was pretty! I read other reviews on other sites that indicated the beautiful ocean views are not really incorporated. I agree, but at the same time, the course was in top notch condition. Fairways especially were comparable to top private clubs. No complaints from me.

We stayed at the nearby rental condos which allowed me to get the same rate as the resort guests. I also played twilight so my total was under $100.

Great course. Green was rock hard. Cannot get it to stick. Challenging course overall. Recommendation is course management. Play smart and you'll get a decent score.

A beautiful kept course, with amazing fairway grass. They could spend some money on bunker sand, which is badly missing. Worth the trip to Oahu's North Shore; 40 miles from Waikiki.
