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.
Having opened in 2006, guests playing this course should find fairly modern facilities. The course layout, hole placement, and practice areas all came from the imagination of Jack Nicklaus, the architect of Punta Espada Golf Club. Vacationers can plan to enjoy a complete round of golf at this 18 hole course.
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.
