Couples' golf program at Poipu Bay Golf Course in Kauai, Hawaii

Kauai's acclaimed Poipu Bay Golf Course, situated on the island's sunny south shore, offers a "Tee For Two" program designed specifically for couples who want to enjoy an afternoon round on the course--just the two of them--at a great value.

Tee For Two allows couples to tee off from 1:00 to 1:50 p.m. any day of the week and play an 18-hole round together as a twosome, based on course availability. The Tee For Two rate is just $135 (plus tax) per person--a substantial savings over Poipu Bay's standard rate of $240. The rate includes rental clubs (a $55 value per person), if needed, featuring the course's Callaway X Hot clubs.

For many couples, one individual is a more confident golfer than the other, and it can be intimidating for the less experienced player to be placed in a foursome with people they don't know. For couples on the Tee For Two program, Poipu Bay will send them out as a twosome, if at all possible (depending upon how busy the course is at that time.)

Poipu Bay Golf Course is situated on 210 oceanfront acres adjacent to the Grand Hyatt Kauai Resort & Spa on Kauai's south shore. The spectacular course gained fame as the host site for the PGA Grand Slam of Golf from 1994 through 2006. A Robert Trent Jones, Jr. design, Poipu Bay has been consistently ranked over the years among the top resort courses in the U.S. It was named to Golf Digest's 2013/2014 list of "America's 100 Greatest Public Golf Courses" and Golfweek's top 10 "Best Courses You Can Play" in Hawaii for 2014.
