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 has become a well-established location to tee off, founded in 1998. The greens, holes, and bunkers were created by Chi Chi Rodriguez, the lead architect of this golf course. The golf course has earned a course rating of 72.7, and its 18 holes stretch out a total of 6501 yards. Also note that there is a golf pro, Carlos Mier, available on-site ready to help beginners work on their skills or give advanced lessons 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.
