great lay out, beautiful views

Course was in great shape, fun to play a little windy when we played but that's what you get right on the water. The main drawback is there is no snack bar/restaurant on the premises so bring your own goodies

Shot my version of 59 at Poipu Bay

Phil Mickelson shot 59 to win the Grand Slam of Golf at Poipu Bay back in the day. My 77 - with an even par back nine - was my version of that incredible round. It came out of nowhere and remains one of my best scores ever.
So, Poipu Bay's easy, right? Hardly.
I was lucky to catch it on a calm day, but there's a fair bit of water near the greens ... on 7, 11, 13 and 18. The greens are big and undulating. A couple of the holes play quite uphill, the par-4 8th and par-5 14th, so those holes are never simple.
Overall, Poipu Bay is as enjoyable and as scenic as any resort course in all of Hawaii. The adjacent Grand Hyatt is also one of my favorite Hawaiian resorts. I can't recommend a stay-and-play enough. You won't regret it.

A great day on the course!

This was a great day at Poipu Bay! We had no one in front of us or behind. The course is beautiful - we had a great time. The conditions were great - and it is nice that they include the practice facility, too. The rate is high - and in non-covid times I'm sure it feels like more of an overall experience. The cart-girl did her last round at about 1 which was a bit frustrating. But definitely will be back for another special round.

Kauai golf re-opens

Very convenient to the Grand Hyatt. The course is in excellent condition, stay out of the growing rough. Greens roll smooth. Remember your safeHawaii QR code and take a screenshot as there is no cell service.

The course was in excellent shape and the staff is so friendly and helpful. Because of COVID the pro shop had limited hours and the restaurant was closed which was disappointing but overall I would definitely recommend this course as a must play.

Brutal wind

Course is awesome but if your a high handicapper and it’s windy (20-30) constant you my want to wait to play. Great pro shop locker rooms where a little old bring your own soap shampoo etc if your chnging there. Course is worth the drive and the price to play. Try Nd get on during week and after 12 it’s cheaper. Legit course!!!!!! Great shape!!!!!
