This is my silver medal course behind Princeville Makai. Staff at the pro shop and cart guys were great. No cart girls today, which I found strange. Now for the golf: I'm a 7 handicap and this is my second time at this course. Poipu is hard with out being penal. It gets more than its fair share of wind... More

The course was in decent shape, but not as wonderful as the $200 price tag on a Tuesday. The course was very quiet yet a 'marshall' kept pushing us and telling us to hurry. We finally had to have a discussion with him and call the clubhouse to tell them that we're on vacation and have spent over $300 per... More

I havent played a ton of "fancy" golf courses in the world, but this one is pretty great. We made a time at 2:00 to get the twilight rate of $120. They take care of you as you would expect at that price and do a great job with club rentals ($55 for nike clubs that I thought were pretty... More

This is a very beautiful and challenging golf course. The back nine runs out and in (and up and down) along the ocean, which of course creates breathtaking views. There was a three- to four-club wind roaring off the ocean the day we played, so the long uphill courses against the wind were a special test. But we like wind,... More

I reviewed this course 2 1/2 years ago and gave it Outstanding marks. I've played it at least once every year for 20 years and twice this trip. Ever since the MasterCard Grand Slam left, it seems to be slipping in terms of maintenance. This time I noticed the fairways were in worse shape, bare in places, and overall it... More

My second year playing here and this one is an absolute gem. The pace in the am is better as well if you don't like playing in a 2 club wind all day get out early. The greens are smooth and roll well. The down side is no beverage cart and the restaurant in the clubhouse doesn't have a kitchen... More

We had a perfect day for golf at Poipu. The experience from start to finish was outstanding. We made tee times a couple of days in advance and got the couple's special, which included 18 holes around 1 p.m. and rental clubs. Decent price for the experience, and we were very happy with it. The pro shop people were very... More

This is a venue where the pros played. It is a great course. The back nine has some special views. The course is not difficult but some holes can play really long when the wind is in your face. The sand traps are real and numerous. There is little water. Carts are electric. We saw 5 whale just today while... More

Got a 2:00 time for $125, worth every penny. Pro shop most accommodating re getting cheapest time. Starter allowed us out a little early to assure our getting in 18 holes before sunset. Everyone we met was excellent. Property well maintained. Beautiful ocean vista, good carts with gps, towels and water. Great range, balls and grass etc. Playable RT Jones... More
