Kauai’s Poipu Bay Golf Course in Hawaii is on target to reopen, as planned, on Dec. 16, unveiling its newly renovated greens. The course has been closed since April 1 to undergo a comprehensive greens refurbishment project.
The original Tifdwarf Bermuda grass has been removed, and greens have been replanted with a Sea Shore Paspalum hybrid that has proven to be an optimum putting surface in Hawaii. The eco-friendly Sea Shore Paspalum will require less fertilizer and almost no herbicides for maintenance, and it is a very drought tolerant grass.
“The new greens will provide a more consistent speed year-round, creating a better overall golf experience for our guests,” said Craig Sasada, Poipu Bay’s Director of Golf. “We are very pleased with the progress of the renovation thus far, and we’re looking forward to welcoming golfers back to Poipu Bay beginning December 16.”
In addition to the greens project, Poipu Bay’s 21,000-square-foot Clubhouse is undergoing refurbishment, including locker room renovation, new carpeting, and repainting.
