Playa Grande Golf Course

The course is completely secluded save a few residences and the golf resort. By far, the most unforgettable aspect here is its location atop the breathtaking cliffs of the northern coast. The course is laid out all along the coast, and ocean vistas seem to stretch on forever. In the opposite direction are the hills and mountains of the island's interior. Fortunately, the course doesn't waste it's unbelievable location by offering sub-par golf. The course is challenging, and stiff winds can be problematic. Nevertheless, golfers of a variety of still levels should be able to manage.
