My favorite course for the money is La Canas. Favorite is Punta Espada, next is Dye Fore (Casa de Campo) and next is Teeth of the Dog. I like Cocotal also. I understand Roko Ki is closed but it was spectacular. It has been about three years since I have played any of them (I have been going to the North Coast) and things can change. I have not played the new course in Cap Cana.I was invited to play in a golf outing the second week of December and will try to raise my game to mediocre beforehand. What are your favorite courses in the area and why?
La Cana would be a good fit. P.B. Dye course that's good for all levels. Several oceanfront holes. Caddies are extra but very helpful and knowledgeable. Clubhouse is oceanfront with the bar on the second floor. Have to admit I'm a bit biased, used to work there several years ago lolThank you to all. The course for the outing is a tough one and my play level doesn't need a challenge. Hopefully, it is a scramble format. My game is a 16 handicap with low line drives that don't grab the green. I'm looking for a forgiving course with cold beer in the clubhouse.
Can we assume by your screen name that you are a member of the Black Rum Golf Association? If so, you have probably played some of the best courses.My favorite courses are as per the following list.
Cana Bay GC, Hard Rock Hotel
La Cana GC
All the above provide excellent service, courses are priced very reasonably , and caddies are not needed.
Thanks for that information about Iberostate ..did not know that ..it is just an ok course but good value I agree . I always get Punta Blanca for about $45 with my fedo golf card . Did you mean that Hard Rock was difficult or hard ...the greens often are hard and the shots to the green run more than other courses.I think the best deal in Punta Cana, if you live there, is at the Iberostate course. You can get an annual membership for $90US and then you pay $45US per round and you get free drinks and sandwiches on the course, plus lunch after(or in the middle) of the round. Very nice course and always very well maintained.
The course at Hard Rock is very good but hard. Punta Blanca is excellent and about $70US if you have a cedula.
