Poipu Bay tees off with special golf values // (c) 2013 Poipu Bay Golf Course
Kauai’s Poipu Bay Golf Course, which gained fame as the host course for the PGA Grand Slam of Golf from 1994 through 2006, has announced a variety of special values and packages for 2013.
For golfers who want to play Poipu Bay more than once, the course’s 2013 Grand Slam Package offers three rounds of golf for a discounted price, with the requirement that all three rounds must be completed within ten days after date of purchase. The package includes green fees, shared golf cart with GPS, use of the driving range and three rounds at Poipu Bay for $425. For guests staying at the adjacent Grand Hyatt Kauai Resort and Spa, the package is offered at $367. The Grand Slam Package price represents a substantial savings off the 2013 standard green fee at Poipu Bay, which is $240 ($170 for Grand Hyatt guests).
In addition, Poipu Bay offers two multi-round packages for players who pre-purchase five or ten rounds of golf. The five-round Prepaid Golf Package price is $660; the ten-round package price is $1,200. Additional savings are offered to guests of the Grand Hyatt Kauai. Each golfer’s Prepaid Golf card will be kept on file at the Poipu Bay Golf Shop for easy access and check-in for their rounds. All rounds of golf on the Prepaid Packages must be used within 30 days of payment.
For 2013, Poipu Bay offers an afternoon rate of $150 for play starting after 12 noon ($140 for Grand Hyatt guests) and a twilight special of $95 for play starting after 2 p.m. and ending by 6 p.m. For those who want to play 36 holes in one day, the course offers a second round/same day rate of $55. A nine-hole rate of $105 is offered between the hours of 7 to 9 a.m.
Young golfers age 17 and under can play the course for 50 percent off the adult rate at any time of day. After 4 p.m., junior golfers can play free if walking the course with an accompanying adult ($10 fee for the adult).
The course is situated on 210 oceanfront acres on Kauai’s south shore. Designed by Robert Trent Jones, Jr., Poipu Bay was recently named to Golf Digest’s 2013-14 list of America’s 100 Greatest Public Golf Courses.
