Puakea Golf Course Offers Incentives to Visitors

Puakea Golf Course, Hawaii’s newest 18-hole facility, has announced a multi-day “Hana Hou Kauai Visitor Membership Golf Program” and all-inclusive “Stay and Play Golf Package.” The Robin Nelson-designed layout is owned by AOL founder Steve Case.

The Hana Hou Kauai Visitor Membership Golf Program includes unlimited green fees, cart and range balls. Those under 18 play for half price with a paying adult. The four-day, seven-day and one-month programs run $280, $392, and $1,200, respectively, and all come with Puakea’s new “Satisfaction Guarantee.” Golfers not convinced that Puakea Golf Course is Kauai’s “Best Kept Secret” pay only for their golf round that day, with the remaining balance of the visitor membership refunded in full.

Puakea’s four-day, three-night “Stay and Play Golf Package” includes one round of golf at Puakea Golf Course, three-nights accommodations at the Radisson Kauai Beach Resort in Lihue, Kauai, daily breakfast, and a three-day, midsize car rental. These packages are $399 per person, based on double occupancy. An additional round at Puakea Golf Course can be added for half-price ($62.50 per person).

“We are very excited to offer these outstanding programs and packages at Puakea,” says Paul Ito, director of golf at Puakea. "Puakea's scenic beauty and fun yet challenging layout make it the perfect course for extended stays and multiple rounds of golf."

About Puakea Golf Course

Over the past year, Puakea has been heralded as one of Hawaii’s finest layouts by various publications. The course was recently named the fourth best layout in Hawaii by Hawaii Magazine, while American Airlines’ Celebrated Living ranked Puakea as one of the top-10 new courses in the U.S.

Located on the former Grove Farm sugar plantation, Puakea is situated 10 minutes from the airport and five minutes from downtown Lihue. The course nestles at the base of the dramatic Ha’upu Ridge, adjacent to the lot where Steven Spielberg filmed “Jurassic Park.” Puakea was designed by Nelson, dubbed “Mr. Hawaii” for being the state’s most prolific golf course architect. Nelson has designed or re-designed roughly one-third of Hawaii’s nearly 80 courses, including The Dunes at Maui Lani, Royal Kunia and Mauna Lani.
