This championship course is of tournament quality, and has already hosted PGA events. There are a few water holes, and sand traps are abundant, both around the greens and along the fairways. Wind can be problematic at times, which can make you second-guess some of your club selections. Complimentary transportation from the adjacent Hard Rock Hotel is available straight from your room to the clubhouse.

Course Description

Having opened in 2010, vacationers playing this course should expect freshly built, modern facilities. The greens, holes, and bunkers reflect the design of Nicklaus Golf, the architect of Hard Rock Golf Club at Cana Bay. The golf course features a course rating of 71.1, and its 18 holes measure a total length of 6247 yards.

This newly-built course is on the picturesque eastern Dominican coast. A couple of holes kiss the shoreline of some lakes, and most of the others are surrounded by the thick mangrove forests. Beautiful views abound, and the area's native flora and fauna is on show along this immaculately manicured course. It has multiple tees that offer challenging yet accommodating golf options for all players, regardless of skill level or experience.
