When PGA Tours were first celebrated in the DR, the Punta Espada golf course distinguish itself by hosting the event. They hosted several PGA Tours since then. Some time later La Cana golf got a PGA Tour event. Now the Playa Dorada golf course gets its own PGA Tours. By the look of things, all major Dominican golf courses eventually are going to get their PGA Tours.

Punta Espada at least is in the top 100 golf courses in the world. The other Dominican golf course in the top 100 is Teeth of the Dog in Romana. The golf course in Playa Dorada is not one of the world's top courses and it has never been. Its almost a miracle it got PGA interested.
