Course Description

Built in 2002, this golf course in the Dominican Republic has long been welcoming visitors to its greens and fairways. The greens, difficulty of the holes, and sand traps reflect the design of Alberto Solá, the lead architect of the course. There are 9 holes here, which measure out to a total 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.

Moderate bunkering and tree-lined fairways create a round of golf that is interesting but certainly manageable.
