Played this course for over twenty years and I have never seen it in better condition. The greens are probably as good as I've seen in Hawaii. It has great views and is great for all skill levels. The range is now open if you just want to practice. The staff is always very friendly and helpful.

We played Poipu Bay 4 times during our recent stay on Kauai. Staying at the neighboring Grand Hyatt we were able to store our clubs at the clubhouse and just walk about 5 minutes from our room. The staff are fantastic and so welcoming. It helped that they were experiencing a strange, slow time then. Nobody was there! The trade... More

Very nice course. Second to Makai course at Princeville. Views from the last holes are beautiful. I will say golfing on the Island is expensive @ $200 per round. Do your homework. If budget doesn't matter then I recommend.

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
