The respected Golf Magazine has announced that The Golf Club at Kukuiula has earned its highest honor as the best new private golf course in the country. This recently completed 7000 yard course, designed by former touring professional Tom Weiskopf, is just steps away from our Kauai vacation rentals in Poipu Beach.
The golf course earned the accolades for its verdant wide fairways that play amidst coffee fields on former sugarcane land in Poipu. Expansive vistas of the south shore that reveal landmarks like Spouting Horn and the National Tropical Botanical Garden’s, McBryde and Allerton Gardens highlight this course.

Best Private Golf Course
Before you get into a golf induced frenzy, I need to remind you that it is a private course. Hey, don’t shoot the messenger. I am not happy about the rules either. Let me tell you what it will take to join this exclusive golf club.
To play the course, requires purchasing a home or a lot in the exclusive Kukuiula development. The completed house and lot packages are priced in the 2 million range and if you wish to build your own home, lots start at approximately 1 million. Wait, you are almost ready to tee up. The final step is to purchase a golf membership at 75 thousand dollars and there will be monthly fees.
There are golf alternatives here in Poipu. The Kiahuna golf course has a stunning course with vistas of Mt. Haupu, also known as Black Mountain. Challenging narrow fairways that are well maintained and fast greens. Another great alternative is the Poipu Bay Golf course located adjacent to the Grand Hyatt. A short course that offers dramatic views of the south shore coastline.
Tell us your favorite gold course on the island and we will let the world know. Golfing is one of the best things to do on Kauai.
