The Dominican Republic is world known as a top destination for Golf players. This Caribbean island features most strongly in Punta Cana, a peninsula on the easternmost point of the country, but has many Golf Courses all around the island.

Located on the eastern tip of the Dominican Republic, the Punta Cana area is widely recognized as a world-class golf destination with a great variety of courses to suit all levels of experiences and fun and dynamic designs of challenging bunkers, diverse greens, and forgiving holes on land and close to the ocean, invite thousands of travelers to our Caribbean Island.

Always named first, as one of the top places is the golf course in Casa de Campo – Teeth of the dog – that has been designed by Pete Dye, followed by Punta Espada’s classy track designed by Jack Nicklaus in Cap Cana and Tom Fazio’s Corales golf course in Punta Cana.

Punta Espada in Cap Cana is a Jack Nicklaus signature course that has become popular as the second-best course in the Dominican Republic and ranks in third place Caribbean wide.

It is one of the world’s foremost golf experiences names by many international golf magazines.

Almost half the holes play to or along the rocky Atlantic coastline. The 13th hole is a par 3 that requires the player to hit a 249 yard shot over water and calls for a heroic, all-carry tee shot out over the Caribbean Sea to a green that clings to the edge of the island.

The architect of this course incorporated the natural coastal topography of cliffs, beach, and lagoons into the design that provide phenomenal views of the landscape and this is what makes it interesting and fun to play here.

Cocotal Golf & Country Club is located in a gated community in Bávaro near the Shopping Mall Palma Real and includes a 27 holes course with names like Hibiscus, Benjamin, and Bourganville that are available for everybody that want to relax for a while and practice their favorite sport.

The entire course is laced with a wonderful variety of indigenous tropical flora, which allows any housing to merge unobtrusively into the background.

Iberostar Bávaro hotel complex has an 18 hole, par 72 very player-friendly golf course that has been designed by P.B.Dye located in and is open every day to offer one of the top golf experiences in Bavaro.

The pace of this course is good as it plays in less than 4 hours.

The HardRock Resort offers a unique Golf Course situated along the white sandy shores of the stunning Macao Beach.

This is another great course that Designed Jack Nicklaus has put on the map for travelers looking for a unique golf experience in Punta Cana. The layout’s rolling fairways and greens weave through native flora and fauna, providing golfers with a truly unique round in a tropical setting.

There are expansive lakes that come into play on several holes as well as numerous strategically placed bunkers that make it fun and interesting and challenge even the experienced ones. Nice and unique feature: carts are equipped with GPS giving location, suggestions for shots, and accurate distances for approach shots!

All of these impressive Golf Courses have residential developments with exclusive amenities for guests and owners.
