This is one of two courses at the resort, both of which offer golfers a tournament-quality round. A massive 35,000 sq. ft. clubhouse is available here, and is considered one of the premier country clubs on the island. The course itself is fairly open, but the outer edges are surrounded by wooded areas in places and resort complexes elsewhere.
Founded in 1975, this course in Puerto Rico has become a classic spot for a round of golf. The layout, holes, and sand traps reflect the design of George Fazio, the lead architect of the course. The golf course has earned a course rating of 71.8, and its 18 holes measure a total of 6435 yards.
Golfers play alongside iguanas and other wildlife, while panoramic views of the Atlantic Ocean threaten to steal attention away from one's golf game. Besides the oceanside 16th, water plays a major role elsewhere as well. Large water hazards are found throughout this well-landscaped course.
