The course is fairly typical of resort-style designs: it is well-maintained, and features a pretty standard layout, lending itself to a variety of abilities. Moderate bunkering and few doglegs add to the challenge, and the quiet, relaxed setting should appeal to most golfers.
This golf course has become an established location to play a few rounds, since it was built in 1995. The greens, hole placement, and feared sand traps all came from the imagination of Charles Ankrom, the architect of the course. It has a course rating of 70.5, and its 18 holes stretch out 6396 yards.
Carved out of the lush, level landscape of the Dominican Republic's southeastern coast, the course winds throughout the Embassy Suites by Hilton. Seaside vistas and a few inland lakes add to the visual appeal, and tropical trees dot the course throughout.
