Dorado Beach East Course

The East Course has been renovated by the son of the course's original design, bringing it up to and beyond modern standards. An aggressive tree management program has restored the original site lines on most of the holes. Native sands have been brought in to fill the new bunker designs, and the immaculately maintained Bermuda greens allow for double digit green speeds.

Course Description

Built in 1958, this golf course in Puerto Rico has long been welcoming visitors to its greens and fairways. The course layout, holes, and surprise challenges reflect the design of Robert Trent Jones, Sr., the lead architect of Dorado Beach East Course. It has been given a course rating of 70.5, and its 18 holes stretch out a total of 6086 yards. Also be aware that there is a golf pro, Miguel Colon Jr., on hand, so think about golfing here if you'd like some pointers on your back-swing.

The course is long and challenging if played from the championship tees. However, the forward tees allow golfers of varying abilities to enjoy this beautiful course. No matter where golfers choose to play from, water hazards, extensive bunkering, and obstacles in the form of large tropical trees will have to be overcome in order to turn in a decent round.
