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

The views of the coastline and mountains are out of this world. I am not a regular golfer but tis course is welcome to all experience levels.

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

We returned to Kauai after discovering it last year, and to again play golf at Poipu Bay. We all loved this course and played it twice this year. It has amazing scenery and spectacular ocean holes on the back nine. The wind is something to be aware of, especially on the ocean holes. The staff are all nice and helpful.... More

I played here during our stay at the Grand Hyatt and enjoyed it very much. The course is nice and has many holes with ocean views. It wasn't very crowded and as a threesome, we played 18 holes in in 3 1/2 hours. It isn't greatly maintained which is the only reason I didn't give it 5.

Excellent greens, course in very good shape, nice views. It seemed long playing into the wind or a cornering hurting wind on the majority of holes. Wind really adds to a different golf experience as had to hit 2 or 3 extra clubs uphill into the wind. Practice flighting ball down before you play this one. Staff was excellent, Mike... More

The course was a lot of fun to play. The views along the course were amazing. The back 9 really shows why this course was once a PGA grandslam course. I enjoyed the game however everyone in our 4 some was taking more pictures than playing golf. I would love to play this course again!
