Complimentary transportation from the adjacent Hard Rock Hotel is available straight from your room to the clubhouse.

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.
