Currently Bad Shape For the Price

I was extremely disappointed in Poipu Bay after hearing so many good things about the course and scenery. The fairways were in bad shape due to irrigation work on most holes. There were only 17 holes available to play + one makeshift hole on the driving range and the greens were the slowest speed I have ever played on for a course of this caliber. Very disappointed. I would not consider playing until all work is completed or the green fee is less than $100

Must play course - incredible scenery and views

If you are in the Poipu area and are an avid golfer, this is a must play course. The scenery is spectacular, the course is challenging, and it should be a memorable experience.

Course was as advertised

Very enjoyable course to play. Very scenic course with both Mountain and Ocean Views. Well manicured course and the greens were solid and consistent. My wife and I had a great round, what a way to start off our vacation.

Never again

I was staying at the Grand Hyatt and decided to play Poipu Bay. When I got to the golf course the golf shop had two people behind the counter. First thing that they said was that I needed a collared shirt. I was wearing the same overshirt as Justin Thomas on the PGA tour and they told me that this wasn't the PGA tour. The golf course was uninspiring. Upwind and downwind. Nothing interesting. Greens are slow. There was no one there. After the round I grabbed a couple of balls and hit chips on the putting green. They sent someone out to tell me that I couldn't chip on the green even though there were no signs telling me that. Overall, a terrible experience and I will never go back.

Beautiful views

The course has outstanding ocean views. Conditions of the Fairways were good, but not great. I paid less expensive courses on the island with similar, if not better, fairwayConditions. Overall, I enjoyed the course and the layout.

Beautiful views and spectacular golf as well

Had a wonderful time despite some strong winds. Course was in great condition, practice facilities outstanding. Very friendly pro shop staff.
Consider playing a little shorter tee as the wind can easily be more than 2 clubs hurt

Fantastic layout with beautiful scenery

Great golf course, greens were immaculate and pretty quick. Bunkers were in bad shape due to much recent rain, but understandable. Very interesting track with some fun elevation changes. Ocean is not in play buts adds to beautiful setting of the course. Loved it, but lots of wind

Golf pricing

I would determine usage to be low - I think that the big 3 and Puukea have priced their product too high. If I didn't have a Troon card it would be Wailua every day.
