Golf in the Dominican Republic

Not only does the Dominican Republic have stunning beaches, great rum (The 3 B’s – Bermudez, Brugal and Barcelo) and a plethora of great all-inclusive resorts, it’s becoming known as a Caribbean golf mecca. With 26 courses to choose from, it’s not hard to see why.

During our recent stay at the Hard Rock Hotel & Casino in Punta Cana, two of the four in our group had had the pleasure of playing several of the areas courses – including The Hard Rock Golf Club, an 18 hole Championship Golf Course designed by Jack Nicklaus. The other two opted for spa time at Rock Spa (amazing!) and then spent time reviewing the beach…

The two other courses played were the Punta Espada Golf Club in Cap Cana and Corales in Punta Cana. The following pictures were taken during the spectacular round of golf at Corales.

Excellent golf on beautiful golf courses! The one we didn’t get to experience – but hope to? Teeth of the Dog in Casa de Campo….listed #1 in Dominican Republic in The Top 100 Golf Courses of the World.

If you’d like to experience some of the excellent golf courses of the Dominican Republic, there are a few things to keep in mind. First of all, the island is huge – so you may want to look into playing a course in the proximity of your resort – or choosing a resort close to the golf courses you’d like to play!

Secondly – not all of the courses are as in good of condition as others. Do some research on which courses were preferred by other golfers to avoid being disappointed in the experience.

And last – but certainly not least, be sure to save time to explore the gorgeous beaches and sample some Bermudez, Brugal and Barcelo rum – and perhaps even a little Dominican Republic Mamajuana!
