Here’s the skinny on the newest golf package deals at properties around the western hemisphere.
Starting with Poipu Bay Golf Course in Kauai, HI, the new Tee for Two program is greeting golfing couples with greens fees of $125 pp, down from standard rates of $240 pp. The discounted rates include rental Callaway RAZR X clubs if needed, with tee times available from 1 to 1:50 p.m. In addition, couples can play as a twosome based on availability, rather than being paired up with other golfers they don’t know.
