Pay less than $100 and score a Kauai golf deal at Kiahuna Golf Course in Poipu Beach. This par-70, 6,925 yard tract was designed by world famous architect Robert Trent Jones II. Tight fairways and stellar greens stand ready to challenge our Kauai vacation rental guests to “18 holes of Aloha.”
Jones did a remarkable job in his design back in 1984 by routing players past the remnants of an authentic Hawaiian village. Ancient stone walls once used as territorial markings can be seen in and around this Kauai golf course. There is also a touch of Scotland’s Old Course at St. Andrews with the massive double green shared by holes No. 3 and 7 on the front nine.
Kiahuna was the first Kauai golf club to switch to seashore paspalum turf after an extensive renovation eight years ago. What the course lacks in dramatic coastal views like Poipu Bay, it makes up for in soaring mountain views capped with ocean vantage points. The course gets a 90% satisfaction rating by golfers for value, friendly staff and some of the fastest greens on Kauai.
Interesting fact: Kiahuna is home to a rare (and harmless), endangered Koloa Blind Wolf Spider that lives inside a small series of caves off the second fairway.
