Puakea Golf Course

Puakea Golf Course

18 holes, par 72, 6,954 yards. All prices per person and include golf cart rental.

Puakea, designed by golf course Architect Robin Nelson cleverly uses the local natural beauty as his landcape, setting his course at the base of the towering Mount Haupu. Puakea treats golfers to the stunning island beauty that is Kauai, playing through deep ravines, crossing mountain fed streams and revealing views of the Pacific Ocean.

Robin Nelson had this to say upon completion of his golf course, "Puakea may be the most fun course to play in Hawaii. The course rides up, down and around deep ravines. It has beautiful, pali views on about three-quarters of the course and ocean views for the rest. Each of the holes are distinctly different so you're constantly facing new, interesting challenges."

Puakea is 7000 yards of exhilarating golf, using beautiful island flora and fauna, giving a sense that it is in complete harmony with nature. The masterfully designed course clearly conveys the routes golfers should take for textbook pars. However, the more daring golfer will be tempted to achieve glorious birdies for a truly rewarding round of golf.
