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 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...


Notable holes include:

- hole 6, a par 3 featuring a long drop to a green set in a gully, with water protecting the front of the green, and wonderful mountain backdrop
