Going to okay it again during the stay
Back nine has some rock outcroppings. Now that I know where to shot, I want to okay it again.
Nice day on the plantation
Beautiful setting with grand views. The course was tough on us, especially since it is only a par 70. My wife found too many traps, most of which were too hard/wet to get out of (and several had tracks from previous golfers who did not rake 😩). Greens are almost recovered from being plugged, and play true but are still somewhat dimpled. Not too windy the day we played, but looked like several holes had the exposure to be nasty on the wrong day. Friendly staff made up for some of the off course amenities quirkiness. Restaurant didn’t open until after our tee time with few local options for breakfast. The phone number on the cart to call as you start the 9th hole to place your order goes to a voicemail that is a general line for the restaurant chain and not specific to the course kitchen, so we had an extended wait to receive our food. We only had to let one group play through while we waited, but on a busier day that could have been 3 or four.
Great Time on Vacation
This course was more affordable than most in Kauai, but it wasn’t less of a course. If was challenging, beautiful, and from what I know, it has some historical significance on the island. Not many water views, but the beauty of the course made up for that. I highly recommend!
It would have been nice to know that a wedding was taking place outside the clubhouse as we finished our round.
Course was in excellent shape tee to green. I enjoyed the undulated greens.
Single player with 3:24 tee time, was able to get off early off the back nine. Finished in under 3 hrs. Love everything about the course. The ONLY thing that concerned me was having to get the carts in 6 when sunset was almost 7:30. Was not a problem just a worry. Otherwise 👍👍👍👍👍
Complete difference in course design between first 9 holes and back 9 holes, and I enjoied with different strategy.
Played here on a Wed as a single. Got paired with two other golfers and had a great day. Course is resortish, but interesting. Liked the back better than the front. Course and greens were in good shape, other than two of them that had been plugged and sanded. A good alternative to other more expensive ones in the area. Now the bad, driving range was closed, no snack bar and the Paco’s Tacos onsite also closed. Apparently Wed was local morning. Anyway, Still had a good time here and would play again.
Kauai Golf Trip
When I travel to Hawaii I normally go to Maui to play golf. This year I decided to play in Kauai instead. Kiahuna was one of the courses I wanted to try and I’m glad I did. It was in great shape and the he staff was friendly and helpful Thumbs up!!
Great Course - Good Value
This is a great course and good value in Poipu area. The course was in good shape with enough challenge to make a fun round.
I chose this course based on proximity to my hotel and GN positive reviews. The track was very good. Ocean views on some holes. Fairways playable. Greens slow as mentioned in previous reviews. However Club house, range, carts and other infrastructure were barely on par with about every muni I have played. A 5-some plugged up play by the 4th hole and didn’t wave our 2 some by, while pelting balls left and right and driving their carts on top of bunkers and greens. I was greeted with shrugged shoulders when I brought this to the staff s attention. Instead of coming back I’m playing Poipu Bay after noon for $70 more. This course not worth $135 for visitors. Fine for the resident rates, I guess.
Played behind what appeared to be a foursome but only three played which was behind a foursome by hole 7 we could no longer see foursome and by back nine we never seen another group ahead of us they wouldn’t let groups play thru and course had no one controlling slow play they were drunk and forgot clubs on several holes would have been great place playing if slow groups had been monitored
Solid course, good pace of play.
Everything was great to include lunch after at Palos Tacos. One issue we had was getting lost a little on the front nine. Ended up playing 7 for 3 and 3 for 7 as signage stunk. Also could not find 4.
Great fun course
I played by myself and was able to shoot my best score and finish in three hours. It wa a beautiful afternoon. Can’t wait to come back to the island and play there again
