This course was surprising scenic and more challenging than what one had imagined. There are a variety of holes offering changing views and some holes are very memorable, particularly the more difficult ones. Very accessible and fun to play.

My husband and I played late afternoon and received the twilight discounted rate, reasonable compared to other courses on Hawaii. We were able to play 9 holes in alittle less than 2 hours which was nice. The course seemed well maintained with some complexity. We stayed at the Kauai Beach Resort so we were very close to the course. Overall fun experience.

Good course. Not on ocean, but fun to play. Very friendly and laid back staff (unlike pushy and rude resort staffs). Excellent price. Had a blast.

After playing several courses in Oahu, (Overpriced, overrated Turtle Bay, Unsual, but $$ Ko'Olau , & Luana Hills,) Flew to Kaua, ,played an average Muni in Wailua, then struck gold with Puakea Golf Course.
A extremely well maintained course, friendly staff (Richard the starter, Ron, front desk), beverage cart,good snack bar & $59. with a cart (Turtle Bay- $50 just for cart, EACH!).
Front 9 was a pleasure and a warm up to the challenging beautiful back. Course has water, right amount of traps, great views. If I had to find something wrong - No locker room. So what, I came to golf!!! I'll be BACK!!!
BEST VALUE in Hawaii so far.

We stay next to poipu bay golf. If it cost $300 to get to puakea(20 minutes drive) we'd still come out ahead. The back nine at puakea is just as good. The front nine is absolutely fine but there are a few holes that aren't so pretty as they are near shopping area.
Great course, fantastic value. Very friendly. No attitude like poipu bay.
By the way, the steep downhill par 3 is 2 clubs different for the hill!
