Poipu Bay Golf Course has specials

Poipu Bay Golf Course has announced its 2009 rates, packages, and special values for golfers, starting with a “;Grand Slam Package”; that offers three rounds of golf for a discounted price.

The package includes green fees, shared golf cart, use of the GPS and driving range, and three rounds at Poipu Bay for $410 plus tax. All three rounds must be completed within 10 days after date of purchase.

For guests staying at the adjacent Grand Hyatt Kauai Resort & Spa, the package is offered at $352 plus tax. The package price represents a substantial savings off the 2009 single-round green fee at Poipu Bay, which is $150 for Grand Hyatt guests and $220 for non-Hyatt guests.

Once purchased, the Grand Slam Package is nonrefundable, but rounds are transferable to the spouse or child of the purchaser. The package is available through Dec. 19.

Two additional multi-round 2009 packages provide discounts to individuals who pre-purchase five or 10 rounds of golf. The five-round Prepaid Golf Package price is $635, representing a savings of $465 over the standard per-round green fee. The 10-round package price is $1,150, a savings of $1,050 over the standard green fee. Additional savings are offered to guests who are staying at the Grand Hyatt Kauai Resort & Spa.

Each golfer's Prepaid Golf card will be kept on file at the Poipu Bay Golf Shop for easy access and check-in. Rounds are transferable to the spouse or child of the purchaser. All rounds of golf on the Prepaid Packages must be used within 30 days of payment, and the packages are nonrefundable.
