This course made coming to Kauai a pleasure. It was close, excellently maintained and just beautiful. The staff are friendly and you can practice beforehand. Carts are mandatory and are included and they even print a souvenir bag tag with your name on it! A nice souvenir and great subtle advertising technique. Well done!

This is a must if you are in Kuai. A short 30 minute cab ride to one of Hawaii's most impressive golf courses. Challenging and fun. A great staff and fantastic pro shop. the snack bar is just that a snack bar with great views. carts have great GPS and rain bonnets.

This is one of those golf courses you've got to play at least once. The clubhouse and practice facilities are all excellent. Very friendly staff both on the course and in the clubhouse. The course itself, however, was pretty ho-hum. Not particularly difficult if the winds aren't too harsh. It gets quite a bit of action being in the south... More

My first time playing this Robert Trent Jones, Jr. course at the Grand Hyatt and thoroughly enjoyed it. The staff is great, the course well maintained, and the price very reasonable. I played on a Saturday by myself, teed off at 2pm, and 2 1/2 hours later I had played my 18...awesome. The trade winds were pretty strong so keep... More

Club house/golf shop staff quite pleasant and very helpful in that they explained their repeat golf package which saved us over $100 on the second day of golf. Course staff were a hoot! Course was in great shape which made the rounds a wonderful experience even in 30+ knot winds.

Not too challenging but makes for a great round of golf and some awesome views to enjoy while playing. I enjoyed just riding along one day with my son as he and three others played. If you are staying at the Grand Hyatt and know what a golf ball is used for then go play a round.

My husband wanted to play a golf course during our trip to Hawaii and this was the perfect selection! We went all over visiting 4 islands and this is the prettiest course we saw the entire trip! I decided to simply ride along (for $25) and was glad I did. I do golf but it is pretty pricey so I... More

The views of the ocean and the mountains are fabulous. This is not an especially easy course it it plays well. It is exceptionally well maintained and the golf staff is exceptionally friendly and helpful. Play a second time and get a discount. Food is good.

Everyone wants to be treated like they belong to a PGA endorsed golf club. These guys do a great job. The practice facility is awesome. Unlimited balls. Pro feel to it. Like being a member to a private club without belonging. Kid friendly. Went several times. Also a neat practice and play package where you can just play a few... More

We played the back 9 at Poipu Bay Course today. The course is beautiful, however we did not get to enjoy it as we were surrounded by maintenance people who followed us for the 8 of the 9 holes. On 2 holes they sat on the green while we were trying to hit on. We were told when we booked... More
