    Going to need an international airport there ? Will it be too expensive for normal expats to play or will it be for hotel guest only.
    If it is $75 per $18 I'd play, once it gets to $100+ then I'll just keep playing pocket pool. If North Coasters can get a good rate they would invite their buddies from up North and Europe

    Sounds like you picked the wrong country to visit.

    Hard to find courses under $100 any more.
    Especially when you hear about $10M & $7M facelifts...

    Costs of course maintenance are high...and the largest is the fertilizer bill which is hard to reduce

    There is no price to pay. It is private, only for hotel guests. And rooms are about $7,000 US per night.

    No not $7 but $2 or so....still

    Reminds me of the Herb Alpert interview when he was questioned on his $35m donation to his college.
    He scoffed... Oh no.... not $35M..... it was only $30M

    Too high for me, would cut into my Barcelo budget. Guess my clubs will rot or rust

    Too high for most --- me included--- I live nearby so have a bit of an 'in'.

    High roller country.....but they continue to succeed despite my pessimism

    Not sure we can really say the place is successful. It has been thus far a money sink. No sign of profits yet I bet. Changed hands twice, even more money invested in that golf course. Time will tell, but I wouldn't hold my breath that it will be anything but a tax loss for years to come and that's with the DR tax free holiday. For 10 years was it?
