Kaui packages aimed at those wanting to hit the links

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 special values and packages for 2012. The course is adjacent to the Grand Hyatt Kauai Resort & Spa on Kauai’s south shore. For golfers who want to play Poipu Bay more than once, the course’s 2012 “Grand Slam Package” offers three rounds of golf for a discounted price, with the requirement that all three rounds be completed within 10 days after the date of purchase. The package includes green fees, shared golf cart, use of the GPS and driving range and three rounds at Poipu Bay for US$425 plus tax. For guests staying at the adjacent Grand Hyatt Kauai Resort & Spa, the package is offered at US$367 plus tax. The course offers two additional multi-round packages, providing discounts to individuals who pre-purchase five or 10 rounds of golf. The five-round Prepaid Golf Package price is US$660 plus tax; the 10-round package price is US$1,200 plus tax. Additional savings are offered to guests of 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 for their rounds. All rounds of golf on the Prepaid Packages must be used within 30 days of payment. The packages are nonrefundable, but rounds are transferable to a spouse or child of the purchaser.
