The Kaneohe Klipper Golf course has a great staff, very reasonable feeds and extraordinary scenery! They recently remodeled the locker rooms (although they could use some restrooms on the course), the pro shop and the range so they are top-notch. I was there on a Sunday and thought it was a lot faster than the Pali Golf Course. In all, it took us about 4 1/2 hours for 18 holes. The snack shop staff is really fantastic!

DON'T WASTE YOUR TIME.

The thirteenth hole is touted as "home of the Best Hole according to the DOD"... well, it doesn't matter how great a hole is if it takes forever to get to it! No course is beautiful enough to survive playing a 9 hour round. At the pace we were playing, that's how long our round would have taken. A more appropriate description of this course is "SLOWEST COURSE IN THE DOD"... maybe they could even go for the world title.

This is the kind of place that makes me think yelp should offer the option of 0, or negative stars. This place is truly THAT bad. In terms of management, this is easily the worst golf course anyone in our group has ever played at, and two people in our group have been playing golf for twenty years.

While the other reviewers have commented on how beautiful the course is, I wouldn't really know as I only played 4 holes after an hour and forty five minutes.

We should have known at the 1st tee when two other groups pulled up at the same time we did, and said they were given the same tee time as we had. By the time we approached the 4th hole,a par three, there was a group on the green, a group on the tee, two other groups waiting and then US. Yes. You read that right. FIVE GROUPS surrounding a hole. Not to mention the fact that as far as we could see, there were 2 groups on the 5th hole and 3 on the 6th hole. I have never seen a course so poorly managed. We called the pro shop to find out if we could go off the back 9, and they advised that we should drive through to the next open hole. we drove through, only to find disgruntled golfers at each turn, all complaining that the course was too full, SO slow, and downright awful. The group at the 10th hole complained that their round was taking forever and the 1st hole was probably the best place to be (if there was one).

We decided to go back to the pro shop and asked for a refund. The "best" that "Kevin", the poor excuse for a pro shop manager, could offer was a gift certificate for a future round. WHY on earth would I want to come back and play such a poorly managed golf course I asked him? He whimpered that it was the best he could offer, so instead of wasting any more of my time at this hell hole, we took it and left.

I think the worst part was that Kevin wasn't willing to admit that he was wrong and that a 9 hour round wasn't over the top. The pro shop let too many people on the course at once and didn't have a starter or ranger managing course play. I don't know what the staff there are doing, but they aren't working, that's for sure.

So- if you don't know any better, are a beginner or don't mind slow golf, I'm sure this place is beautiful and you'll have a blast. But for everyone else-- save your time and money for one of the many other courses on Oahu that have proper management and a pro shop staff that actually knows how to run a golf course.

I call this a poor mans Pebble Beach. Marine Base golf course that is open to the public. Green fees are very good and the staff is very friendly and helpful. Recommended for any golfer.

This golf course is consistently rated number 1 by DoD (Department of Defense) patrons. It is located on Marine Corps Base Hawaii and has a amazing backdrop of the Koolau Mountains and the Pacific ocean. The fairways are neatly kept and in addition to 18 holes, the complex includes a driving range, chipping green and putting green. They also offer golf lessons. With the military discount, it is one of the best deals around. Not to mention, if work happens to end early some days, I can drive 2 minutes right to the golf course and spend the rest of the day there (I work on base).
