Ted Makalena Golf Course

  8 Reviews

Hands down the best municipal course I have played. Fairways and greens are both in great condition and well maintained (for the price). Dirt patches (mentioned in previous reviews) were not an issues at all, if you stayed on the fairway.

Great course for beginners and high handicappers. I shot 20 strokes lower than I had at Pali just a week before. Wide straight fairways, no hazards or carrys to speak of.

All in all it was a great course for the price. Highly recommend!

shhhh - secret spot!  If you just want to swing the clubs this is as good as it gets.  New cart paths on the front nine and a Greens Keeper that is whipping this place into shape will surely bring that dreaded crowd to this formerly known as "Maka-dirt" hidden gem of a muni track.  Don't go there expecting Augusta National.  This is muni golf at it's finest.  The front nine is pretty easy and straight forward.  On the back you need to be straight.  Mangrove forests and the course perimeter will eat any way ward  balls.  Just remember, it's better then being at work!

This is my weekly golfing mecca. I am up with the worms for the AM morning 9 Holes and checking in @ 5:30am with the rest of the regulars.. Golf is in better condition than most people imagine. Greens have improved greatly and the amount of dirt areas have diminished.

Course is not too hard but still a challenge for the weekly hacker in me. Good bang for your buck since this is a Muni course. Make sure to have your Golf ID with you.

This course is another hidden gem!  Finally had a chance to play this course after driving by it hundreds of time to the Waipio soccer fields.  

Facilities:
No Pro Shop or Restaurant.

Driving Range:
None.

Practice Putting Greens:
They have 2, which are very well kept.

Course:
One to mark off the list.  They have some serious "Dog Leg" holes.  They're actually 1 to 2 holes that greens turn 90 degrees to the pin.

Price:
$32.00 for a round and cart on the weekend, with a golf ID card.

Parking:
Nothing to worry about.
