In Volume 2 of The Confidential Guide to Golf Courses, Tom Doak published that.
“The South course is the better-known of the two at Mauna Lani because the resort used photos of the par-3 15th in its advertisements for more than a decade, but the two oceanfront par-3’s are about all the excitement it can muster. Flat holes surrounded by flat lava beds are really not so intriguing as they look in aerial photos. But if you just want to play golf a couple of times while taking your wife for a week’s vacation at an idyllic resort, you’ll be a hero for choosing Mauna Lani.“
The South Course at the Mauna Lani Resort received a score of 4 out of 10 from Tom Doak and a score of 5 out of 10 from one of his co-authors.
