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.
This golf course could be considered a classic place to tee off, having been built in 1940. The layout, holes, and surprise challenges reflect the design of Pete Dye, the architect of the course. It has earned a course rating of 71.5, and its 18 holes measure out to 6869 yards. Also note that they've got a golf professional, Michelle Gomez , on hand who can help beginners practice their skills or give more advanced help for accomplished 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.
