Punta Borinquen Golf Club

Punta Borinquen is way up on the northwest corner of the island, right against the coast. Golfers will have incredible views of the Caribbean throughout their round, though the hole running alongside the coastal cliff is definitely the most spectacular. If you hang around for a while after your round, you'll be rewarded one of the prettiest sunsets you'll find anywhere. You'll be golfing alongside one the island's airports, so you'll probably see a few planes overhead while you play.

Course Description

Built in 1940, this course in Puerto Rico has long been welcoming visitors to its greens and fairways. Pete Dye designed the golf course. It has been given a course rating of 71.5, and its 18 holes measure a total of 6869 yards. Also be aware that there is a pro, Michelle Gomez , available at the course ready to help novices work on their skills or provide advanced instruction for competent golfers.

Overlooking the water, golfers might find themselves getting to do a bit of whale-watching during their round. Palm species native only to this corner of the island line the open fairways. There are no water hazards here (except for the Atlantic!), but there are a number of tricky sand traps, which definitely factors into the course's difficulty, as the greens play quite fast.
