Play the best golf courses in Punta Cana

For such a small resort destination, Punta Cana packs a punch when it comes to golf, with stunning clifftop courses designed by acclaimed architects such as Jack Nicklaus, Tom Fazio, and P.B. Dye.

Very few places in the world can compare with the sheer beauty of this oasis and while the courses are relatively new, they guarantee exceptional playing conditions in the Caribbean sun.

Some of Punta Cana’s best golf courses include:

  • Punta Espada Golf Club – designed by Jack Nicklaus and opened in 2007, Punta Espada without a doubt one of the flagship layouts in the Caribbean. Enjoy stunning topography, beaches, and lagoons, with nearly half of the holes playing along the iconic shoreline.

  • Corales Golf Club – like Punta Espada, Corales is beautifully set upon dramatic clifftops. Holes 16 to 18 are called the Devil’s Elbow, which is regarded as one of the dramatic and scenic finishes in golf. Highly thought of as a Tom Fazio masterpiece!

  • La Cana Golf Club – a common theme amongst the golf courses in Punta Cana, La Cana was designed by Pete Dye’s son and respected designer, P.B. Dye. This was the town’s first 18-hole course and incorporates four shoreline holes, ponds, and even an island green.

  • Iberostar Bavaro Golf Club – Another P.B. Dye layout, here you’ll find a great resort course that features lakes, streams, and sandy waste areas. Keep your eyes peeled for the iconic starfish-shaped green which has made the course so famous.

  • The Lakes Barcelo Golf Club – originally built as a 9-hole and later redesigned in 2010 by none other than P.B. Dye, golfers playing here should expect 25 inland lakes, rolling fairways, 122 strategically positioned bunkers, and a mangrove forest.
