The views all around are spectacular and the 15th and 16th hole views are incredible. Saw whales while teeing off. The course is challenging but manageable and the staff is fabulous. Played 2 rounds duirng my stay in Koloa. Thank you Danny and Debra.

The course was in pristine shape. Fun and fair layout. Views on the back 9 are incredible. Just incredible views of the water, surf and shore. Staff were friendly. Pace of play was just under 5 hours which is about normal for a resort course.

Poipu Bay was a bucket list course for me and it exceeded my expectations. The course was in great shape and the coastal views are second to none. It’s a pricey round of golf but for me it was worth every penny.

A very nice golf course, within easy walking distance to the Grand Hyatt Kauai. Nice views from most holes. Previously was home of the Grand Slam of Golf. Difficulty was as you would expect at most resorts (a resort course now days).
