Poipu Bay Clubhouse serves up fresh breakfast and lunch dishes right on the 18th hole. A central feature of the Poipu Bay Golf Course, this is the place to refresh or refuel after hitting the links.

The menu here has only a handful of breakfast options, but they work well if you need some energy before getting to the first tee. The Breakfast Panini, Bagel Sandwich, Bagel and Cream Cheese, and Tropical and Seasonal Fruit Cup are all easy enough to eat quickly — or to hold as you head out toward the fairway.

The lunch menu is much more diverse, including no less than eight sandwiches, hot dogs, and burgers, along with a few local favorites and sides. Go for the Housemade Chili and Rice if you want a filling meal that the regulars prefer, or get the Spam Musubi and Egg if you’re feeling adventurous.

Any day on the greens is made better by a refreshment (or two). Wine, mixed drinks, and local drafts are all available for those who prefer them, as are an extensive list of sodas, coffee, juices, Gatorades, and a virgin bloody mary.

Prices are reasonable, and they’re quite affordable once you consider the location. Drinks are $7 or $8, and food dishes range anywhere from $6 to $15. With a perfect view of the 18th hole, you’ll want to linger over whatever dishes you order — just make sure you request a table near the windows.

A few of our menu favorites at Poipu Bay Clubhouse include:

Tropical and Seasonal Fruit Cup
Get the Fruit Cup in order to keep it light before taking on all 18 holes. Tropical fruit makes sense when you’re in the tropics, after all.

Spam Musubi and Egg
This isn’t your grandmother’s version of Spam. Akin to sushi, the meat and egg are pressed into a seaweed roll. Seriously, plenty of the locals do love it.

Makaweli Burger
How do you make a fully loaded burger even better? Get the beef, tomatoes, and garden greens all locally — even grow the greens yourself.

Da Club Sandwich
Not a sandwich to be trifled with, Da Club Sandwich has three slices of bread that are piled high with turkey, bacon, avocado, Havarti, tomato, sprouts, and resort-grown greens. There’s also pesto aioli that helps hold some of the triple-decker together.

Maui Blonde
Enjoy a local beer, of which there are several to choose from. The Maui Blonde is an especially good one to have after golfing, as it’s so light and refreshing,

Insider Tips:
-Even if you aren’t an avid golfer, the Poipu Bay Clubhouse is a less-advertised place to get breakfast or lunch. It’s often a little quieter than many of the resort’s other restaurants.
-You’re welcome to walk over if you’d like to on a nice day, but walking isn’t necessary. A free shuttle runs to the clubhouse from the other end of the resort.
