Puakea Golf Club is a public access golf course in Lihue on the Hawaiian island of Kauai. The course was originally built as a 9-hole facility on an old sugar cane plantation just 2 miles from Lihue airport.

In 2003 the course re opened Puakea Golf Course - Photo by reviewer after a major makeover from noted architect Robin Nelson. Nelson made full use of the terrain to craft an entertaining 18 holes of golf.

After a quite opening few holes through a housing estate the course heads into tropical jungle with significant elevation changes and water hazards featuring and all with a magnificent mountain backdrop.

It is quite a dramatic course from hole 6 onward.

Puakea is a quality course in a memorable setting.

One of the most underrated golf courses in Hawaii. The first few holes provide a straight ahead warmup for the great golf to come. Great mountain views, jungle encroaching on several holes and great use of bunkering and approach shots makes Puakea a great gem of a course on Kuaui.
