Punta Espada Golf Club

No fairway will be perfectly straight here, and deep, intimidating bunkering can make it difficult to turn in a great score. Winds blowing in off the ocean create additional problems for inexperienced golfers, and will even have seasoned veterans sweating over every club selection. The course winds through the resort, but it'll mostly be you, the sun, the surf and the immaculately trimmed turf.

Course Description

Golfers can head over knowing that it will be a contemporary, relatively new course. It was built in 2006. The layout, difficulty of the holes, and surprise challenges are all part of the design by Jack Nicklaus, the lead architect of Punta Espada Golf Club. The golf course offers visitors the opportunity to play a full round of 18 holes.

The course spreads out along the beautiful eastern Dominican coast. Palm trees and tropical vegetation are found throughout, and subtle elevation changes in a largely flat region make for some pleasant challenges. The most enjoyable holes are those along the rocky coast. Sea spray from crashing waves is much welcomed on hot Caribbean days.
