Catalonia Bavaro Resort Cabeza de Toro

Typical of Caribbean courses, palm trees line the fairways, and water makes its presence known on a handful of holes. Located in a peaceful, secluded spot, you'll be able to enjoy a truly relaxing round of golf.

Course Description

This course has become an established spot to tee off, since it was built in 2002. The lay of the land, hole placement, and bunkers are all part of the design by Alberto Solá, the architect of Catalonia Bavaro Resort Cabeza de Toro. There are 9 holes here, which measure a total length of 2600 yards.

The course is across the street from the all-inclusive resort, and is set inside a quiet, forested region on the easternmost portion of the island. There's an island green which is a nice surprise, but excepting that, the play is fairly straightforward. Moderate bunkering and tree-lined fairways create a round of golf that is interesting but certainly manageable.
