Palm trees line the narrow fairways, which lead up to nice, big greens. The terrain is rolling, though subtly so, and strong winds will likely cause more of a challenge than uneven lies. The design provides enough challenge to keep low-handicappers interested, but also allows less experienced golfers to enjoy their round.
This course could be considered a classic place to tee off, since it was built in 1998. Chi Chi Rodriguez designed this course. It has a course rating of 72.7, and its 18 holes stretch out a distance of 6501 yards. Also be aware that there is a pro, Carlos Mier, on-site who can help beginners practice their swing or offer advanced pointers for accomplished golfers.
Looking out onto the Atlantic Ocean from Puerto Rico's windy northern coast, stiff breezes can play a significant factor. Most holes play directly into or directly away from the water. The signature 10th offers stunning views of both the island and the ocean. The resort winds through the center of the course, and a residential area enframes its outer limits.
