Puakea Golf Course

Designed by architect Robin Nelson, Puakea is open to the public as a daily fee golf course. The course is resort quality and built on more than 200 acres of historic property, which was once a sugar cane plantation.

Puakea has been named among the “Top 10” nine-hole facilities in the USA by Sports Illustrated (October 27, 1997 edition). Sports Illustrated stated the Puakea Golf Course “is too spectacular to keep off our list…dramatic in the extreme, the course offers fabulous views of the Pacific and is built amid volcanic cliffs, massive ravines, giant sinkholes and lush tropical undergrowth.”

In January 2003, Puakea Golf Course was temporarily closed for construction to complete the remaining 8 holes. On July 1, 2003 Puakea Golf Course reopened an exciting new 18-hole layout with a new driving range, putting green and spacious short-game practice area. One thing that has remained the same at Puakea Golf Course is its high-quality, “Kauai style” customer service. Puakea was rated 7th Best in Hawaii by Golfweek in 2008.
