Punta Blanca Golf Course

The fairways are very open, and generally play very straight. They are lined by dense underbrush and tropical trees. Palms dot the course throughout. There are a couple of villa complexes on the course in addition to the beautiful clubhouse. You'll be able to enjoy the beach straight after your round.

Course Description

The lay of the land, difficulty of the holes, and surprise challenges are all part of the design by Nick Price, the architect of Punta Blanca Golf Course. It has been given a course rating of 72.1, and its 18 holes stretch out a total of 6706 yards.

One of three course in the area, Punta Blanca is sheltered behind the coastal resorts. The designers have made clever use of the rock formations throughout the course. Waste bunkers are carved out the well-maintained fairways and surrounding vegetation, and a pair of water hazards play a role on a few holes.
