“Royal Hawaiian is located in the rainy part of Oahu and located in the jungle, so it is unlike anything you'll play in the mainland US. It has a few really good holes and a few head scratchers -- conditions can be a little rough in the rainy season (winter) too. If you're looking for something unique -- this one is worth doing! Views of the mountains are excellent!"

“Royal Hawaiian is quite the golf experience. It is settled into the Maunawili Valley and has wonderful views of the Ko'olau mountains. It is quite lush and possibly will be soaked when you go to play. You really feel like you are playing in a jungle and sometimes you are not sure where you are going when heading to the next tee. The course is quite tricky off of the tee. There are several holes that you need to strategically place your shots and requires some careful reading of the course guide to understand options. Because it can be a bit wet, the course was not that enjoyable the day I played. The clubhouse is good and the overall experience friendly."
