Catalonia Caribe Golf Course
A Juan Alberto Sola and Jack Corrie design, this 18-hole parkland course offers an enjoyable round with a large lake which comes into play on four holes. The island in the middle of the lake is the target on the 6th hole, a wonderful par-3. The greens are fast, the fairways tight, and each hole is a unique surprise, but it remains very playable for golfers of all levels. A perfect addition to a golf holiday in the Dominican Republic.
