-Well marked tee boxes.
-Local boulders used as natural tee markers
-Course map at entrance
-Green maps at each tee box
-Clean and easy to navigate
-Tee boxes are sand, so they are a little difficult
-Hole 6 tees off with cars only 6 feet to the right for the majority of the drive.
-Holes 7, 8, and 9 shoot over a field where foot traffic moves to and from the beach
-New construction adjacent holes 8 and 9, may impede course in future
-Beach goers are unfamiliar with Disc Golf and routinely "help" you by picking up your discs for you.
Other Thoughts: Great course if you have military access to the area. Some of the most beautiful beaches on Oahu, camping, playgrounds, pavilion, and cabins within walking distance. Several other recreational activities as well, including mini-golf, driving range, tennis, basketball, and volleyball. A great place to play.

You just cant beat this view!
Nice shot variety
Great views and area (bathrooms, water, a bar, miniature golf, volleyball, paintball, and oh yea...THE HAWAIIAN BEACH!)
Nice tee signs
Easily found and navigable
Did I mention the view?
Tee boxes are sand. This actually didn't bother me as much as I thought it would. It does allow for easier foot rotation.
People are a smidge in play on a couple holes
Bombs! (more on this below)
Don't park in the lot along #6. The fairway runs right over the top of it and...ummm.....accidents happen....
First off, this course might have the best view ever. Can you beat a Hawaiian beach running along one side of the course? I think not. As for the course, no hole is particularly long (I think the longest is 350) but what's nice about this course is you get tremendous variety in only 9 holes. You have tight wooded shots, wide open shots with options on attack angles, and even an ace run to boot. And since the course is in a fairly confined area with little foot traffic, you can make up your own holes quite easily, which you will have to do right now because....there are bombs on the course! In all seriousness, they found 'unexploded ordinance' on the driving range across the street, so they cordoned off where the old flight line used to be which includes #1, #2, #3, and the tee box for #4 so they can eventually sweep and clear the area, but they are taking their time so you may want to call first if you want to play the whole course. On a side note, this is the first round I've played where I thought I may actually die for the game. An interesting sensation for sure. But really, the primary challenge of this course is the wind. It comes on suddenly and erratically off the ocean and it quickly turns a routine drive/putt into a complete disaster. If you catch a break in the wind, throw fast!
If you're in or can get to Oahu, you have to play this course. For starters, I think it's the only permanent course in Hawaii at the moment, but really, it's because you get to play disc golf on the beach, and you just can't beat that.
