GOLF COURSES IN PUNTA CANA

May 23, 2019




The Dominican Republic (and especially Punta Cana) is a true golfers paradise! Here, you will find plenty of really good courses - both inland and ocean-side. When you stay in Punta Cana, you'll have 8 great courses all within a 30-minute drive. And if you choose to drive a little further, you have 3 more courses at Casa de Campo, which is about a 45-60-minute drive from Punta Cana.

The Dominican Republic has been named GOLF DESTINATION OF THE YEAR several times by IAGTO - the International Association of Golf Tour Operators and if you've ever played any of the top courses of this destination, it's easy to see why. Just the fact that you have so many good golf courses by famous golf designers in such a small area is enough to make any golfer excited.

Golf is not cheap in the Dominican Republic - but your money will be well spent. If you're looking for an affordable round of golf, choose any of the in-land courses such as Cocotal Golf & Country Club, Iberostar, Barcelo The Lakes, Punta Blanca and splurge on La Cana ocean-side golf course.

If you don't have to stick to a budget, these top courses should definitely be on the top of your must-play list:

  1. Punta Espada - designed by Jack Nicklaus and ranked #1 on Golfweek's Top 50 Courses in the Caribbean and Mexico
  2. Corales - designed by Tom Fazio and ranked #10 on Golfweek's Top 50 Courses in the Caribbean and Mexico.
  3. La Cana - designed by P. B. Dye and ranked #48 on Golfweek's Top 50 Courses in the Caribbean and Mexico.
  4. Teeth of the Dog in Casa de Campo - designed for Pete Dye and ranked #3 on Golfweek's Top 50 Courses in the Caribbean and Mexico.
  5. Dye Fore in Casa de Campo - designed for Pete Dye.

The golf courses are open all year round, but in the low season, during over the months of summer and in the fall, some courses close completely or partially due to the yearly maintenance.
