Greatest course I've played by far.
The scenery speaks for itself and I have no words to describe it. The entire back 9 is on the ocean, and the front nine looks just as spectacular.

The amenities are well beyond anything I've ever experienced at a golf course. gps systems in the golf cart that give you a digital flyover and analysis of the upcoming hole as well as giving you the distance from the pin and letting you know of other carts in blind spots. You can also electronically keep score in the cart. On top of that you are given complimentary bottled water, towels, and range balls to warm up before you tee off.

I paid $105 for an afternoon tee time, which isn't too bad all things considered.

Outstanding course - Thoroughly enjoyed it..

I agree with the other posting. Just got back from Kauai and this was a pleasure to play.. I played Poipu Bay and Princeville and enjoyed this one the most.. I didnt find it overly difficult.. If you can get a Hawaii ID, not a driver license then almost all courses are half off...

kiele the best

This is the best course I've ever played. On Kauai, it's better than Poipu Bay (which is also a great course) and Princeville (a big disappointment).The back nine is stunningly beautiful with ocean views and reasonable carries to greens. The par 3 fifth playing over a mango jungle is the highlight of the front nine. I'm a 9 handicap and scored well by playing strategically off the tee to give the best approach to the greens which are well guarded by bunkers and wind- learn to keep the ball down to control your distance and direction. It's a crime that 2 of the holes (including the beautiful 15th) are going to be changed to make room for a Ritz Carlton- both Princeville and Puakea are examples of what can happen to a potentially beautiful course when development is allowed to take over. I hope it never comes to that on this magnificent course.
P.S. Don't play any course on Kauai at full price, you can always find a discount tee time on the internet. I played Kiele for $125 instead of the full $170.
