Nice course but pro shop staff was grumpy and unhelpful

Great course and fun to play. However woman in pro shop was rude (down right mean) and unhelpful. Customer service was simply awful

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.

One of my favorite courses in the planet. Course was moist enough that none of my shots ran. Everything hit and stuck. So distance was a problem. Not sure if it’s rained a lot or if they’re overwatering

Poipu - LCD review

The course is beautiful. Course knowledge would make the experience superior. The refreshments cart was a bit tardy in doing rounds. But the views and course itself are worth a round for sure.

Everything was great. Unfortunately nothing was open before or after golf. We were hoping to have lunch afterwards but everything was closed.
Some golf courses in Laquinta Ca understand they can’t make money on food and beverages so they offer free rent for vendors who would like to come in and open up the restaurant at their expense. The Vendors just need to pay for the expenses to keep the lights on. It’s a win win for both parties. Just a opinion

Nice course , views are great, some short far 4’s & 5’s but the wind makes up for that. Had a great time beating my son- in-law.

Great course, but very windy

Poipu Bay is a great course not to be missed. Pace of play was a bit slow once I caught up with the group in front of me, but that allowed plenty of time to enjoy and photograph the beautiful scenery, especially on the ocean holes 15-17. It is very windy, though, a 2-club wind the day I played, mostly either in your face or at your back (not a lot of crosswind holes).

Awesome experience!

The course is in immaculate shape and you couldn’t ask for a better experience. The elements definitely make this course challenging given the intermittent rain and seemingly constant 20+ mph winds. The greens were slower than I would expect for a course of this caliber, but it was welcome after how much work it can take to get to the green in the first place. I would absolutely come back and play again.
