I have been golfing this course for 10 years. I do not know what is going on but the maintenance has definitely gone down hill. The views are still great but they need to get everything under control.

Great course, good condition, challenging layout and beautiful scenery. Best value course on Kauai. Staff were very friendly and helpful. Limited F & B as Club House is yet to be built!

Chose this course based on good reviews and the very reasonable $65 rate after 11AM. Drove in from Princeville and arrived a little early (about 20 minutes). We don't usually hit practice balls so inquired if could go out early as there no players ahead of us or waiting. Answer--NO unless pay another $20. So we waited! Course was in... More

Years ago I golfed at Puakea when it was 10 holes and thought 9 holes would be perfect for our foursome (2 teens, mom and dad). We decided to get a 3 o clock tee time since club rental is $15 each and had an ad in Alamo drive magazine (Dec to March 2015 issue) that says $35 9 holes... More

This may not be the prettiest course on the island but it is the most interesting and challenging. The par 3's required precise shots but are fair. The par 4's are fair and often involve negotiating sand and water. It is also a straight forward course with room to let the shaft out. There are no surprises as is the... More

We played this course @ 11 am. Windy day but the course was in good shape. The people in the pro shop were very helpful with our rental clubs and reservation. We were paired up with a nice guy from Oregon and our skill levels matched pretty well. Driving range and putting area were close to the course and in... More

I discovered Puakea Golf Course while out walking one morning from the Marriott Kauai Resort. The course has a great view of the mountains and is a solid, enjoyable golf course. I rented clubs and the Pro Shop paired me up with a couple of great guys. I found the price reasonable and the course in good shape. The Pro... More

I would play Puakea first if you need to shake off the rust in winter time. Solid layout and fun place to play. Good range, balls are not in good shape though. I really like the course but the greens had different grasses and were tough to putt. The greens took the entire experience down to ordinary. The Loco Moco... More

The course had some really nice holes and in general very nice. The view from the course is also superb! The greens could have been a bit faster than they were but we enjoyed it a lot anyways. Also, the staff was really friendly. It was a bit pricey (not compared to other golf courses on Kauai) but well worth... More

The holes are well designed to be fair yet challenging. The greens are a bit rough and very slow, but once used to them, fine to putt. It's a very fun course and good value for the money.
