Where2Golf says: 

Poipu Bay Golf Course nestles between the Haupu Mountain and the azure Pacific Ocean on the island of Kauai, the oldest and fourth largest of the Hawaiian Islands. This 18-hole championship course occupies 210 oceanfront acres, with many stunning views and a stretch of directly oceanside holes to enjoy.

Designed by Robert Trent Jones Jr, Poipu Bay is an ocean links-style course set above dramatic cliffs and Makawehi Bluff. The tree-lined and open layout provides a wonderful test for your all-round game, with many attractive, skilfully crafted and challenging holes to enjoy. A must play if you are in the area.

Did you know?

For several years from 1994 until 2006 Poipu Bay was the home of the Grand Slam of Golf, arguably the toughest PGA Tour event to qualify for. Established in 1979, the four invitees were the winners of that year's four major championships. The Grand Slam of Golf was a 36-hole strokeplay event conducted over two days, with the four players vying for a purse of well over a million dollars (see our Tournaments section >by Venue >Poipu Bay).

Latest golf course reviews
Koksijde Golf ter Hille Golf Club: on what was previously open farmland, an enjoyable and challenging links-style layout has been crafted. Perhaps the inspiration for Koksijde's new course came from a renowned Harry Colt layout that existed in the 1920s just a couple of kilometres to the west. Read more...
The Duke Golf Club: represents the latest in a trio of private courses to arrive on the Dutch golfing scene. All prefixed by the definite article, The Dutch (2010, designer Colin Montgomerie) and The International (2012, Ian Woosnam) have now been joined by The Duke, which firmly targets a business clientele and the corporate golf market. Read more...
