ABOUT THE PUAKEA GOLF COURSE ON THE ISLAND OF KAUAI, HAWAII
This Robin Nelson-designed layout is located mere minutes from the Marriott. While the cover of this “book” doesn’t impress when pulling into the “clubhouse” (a double-wide trailer), a few holes into the round you realize you’re on an outstanding design. And for good reason. Puakea was a 10-hole, truncated oddity for nearly 10 years after Hurricane Iniki wreaked havoc on Kauai in 1992. Between then and when AOL co-founder Steve Case purchased the course and had Nelson complete his design, Nelson played the course roughly 20 times. He became intimately acquainted with the prevailing trade winds and used this insight when completing Puakea. As a result the wind is a significant factor to be reckoned with, making for a delightful, demanding round.

The back nine of Puakea is perhaps the “hidden gem” of Kauai, each hole flowing seamlessly with the land, offering up-close mountain views adjacent to where many Hollywood films were shot (including “Jurassic Park”). Nelson offers numerous risk-reward shots throughout, keeping concentration high throughout the last putt on 18 is a must.
