Sprawled between lush mountains and rugged ocean cliffs on Kauai’s sunny South Shore, Poipu Bay Golf Course boasts 18 championship holes with seashore paspalum greens that are as visually stunning as they are challenging. Designed by Robert Trent Jones, Jr., Poipu Bay is one of the most highly acclaimed resort courses in the Pacific. Poipu Bay’s 210 oceanfront acres meander along rugged coastline featuring 85 bunkers, five water hazards and wildly varying trade winds. The ocean-links style course includes over 30 acres of tropical plants and flowers, and pleasant distractions abound: panoramic vistas tempt you to stop and get utterly lost in the scenery; Hawaii’s endangered native nene geese frequent the links; and in winter months, humpback whales spout offshore. Your greatest challenge at Poipu Bay may be simply to keep your concentration on the game!
