When you think of Waipahu, you don't associate the location with Country Clubs or
lush tropical settings that are amongst some of the best on the Island.   The Waikele Country Club is a jewell nestled in the middle of an area of outlet malls and hard working class neighborhoods that are
as far from the Country Club life that you can be.  I loved the entrance into the club.  Filled with beautiful Pine Trees and landscaping.  As soon as you turn into the driveway you are transformed out of Waiphau and into an old plantation style world that is oh so comfortable.  I checked out the restaurant but did not eat on this trip.  Here to play golf and focus on improving my play and maybe winning against fellow employees.  While that did not happen, I enjoyed the course and facilities.
Waikele is a gem in a State that has some really beautiful golf courses.  Looking forward to returning and maybe breaking 100.

UPDATE 4/20/13 - RETURN TO WAIKELE FOR GOLF AND LUNCH

Played another round at Waikele and loved the course.  I really think this is one of the nicest courses on Oahu.  From the time I drove up to drop my golf bag to the time I got in my car to leave the staff was excellent.  Greeted nicely in the Club House and by the Starters.  Little Stacy from above has graduated from the beer cart and now works in the sit down restaurant in the Club House.  The restaurant features a large indoor dining room and outdoor seating under cover and also open to the sun.  Great place to relax after a round or if you just want a nice place to hang for breakfast, lunch or dinner.  The restaurant features a large menu of Japanese dishes as well as Sushi plus fish, chicken and beef dishes.  They serve soups, salads and lots of different appetizers too.  I enjoyed a Ahi Poke Salad ($14.25).  Liked the Ahi but did not enjoy the greens they use.  Lots of bitterness.  Everyone in Hawaii is using the same greens for salads and I hate them.  Give me leaf, romaine or regular lettuce and I am happy.  I don't need the fancy looking stuff.  The Ahi Poke is served with a light soy dressing that is pretty bland.
