Offering a slightly less formidable challenge to golfers without PGA hopes, the course features larger greens, bunkers without tremendous depth, and fewer forced carries. Either way, the course is nothing to scoff at, and it's as picturesque as they come. Prepare for a relaxing round on the island's stunning northern coast.
The course was designed to be the most friendly course for resort golfers. No matter what your handicap is, it would be impossible not to admire the spectacular views offered at the course. The front nine plays through thick patches of beautiful tropical trees, and the back nine features four holes with ocean views. The course culminates with a challenging 18th that leaves golfers just below the clubhouse terrace.
