The 2023 Golfweek’s Best ranking of tropical courses include plenty of water views.
4 out of the top 10
I doubt Playa Grande will be advertising...... no photos, you notice!!??
Trent Jones, Pete Dye.... some good course architects on the list
yes that is correct and you can add Nicklaus and Fazio to the list . However, each architect has a brief from the client and is limited by the terrain . The one excellent new course in the DR that was not mentioned is the PGA Ocean 4 course at Playa Nueva Romana between La Romana and San Pedro..there is no famous name architect connected with this course but has far more personality and interest than the bland Resort courses and has wonderful fairways . Playa Grande is a very good course and I have no problems with it being listed at the top although it is rather flat .
There is a new golf course that will be created in Punta Bergantín. Will it be for mortals or Michael Jordan types? Will it give Teeth of the Dog and Punta Espada a run for their money or will be in the level of the Cocotal, Los Marlins, Catalunya, etc types?
