What a wonderful golf course

The greens are perfect, the fairways are in good shapes and the type of holes that they have are challenging holes, easy holes and risk reward holes.

We came to the Golf course area to see the beautiful house that the Dupont's built back in the 1920's. It seems no expense was spared in the building of this house back in the day. Many rooms lavishly furnished and of course that view from the bar on the top floor. You have to see it for your self.

This is a wonderful course. We struggled to book prior to arriving in Cuba. Once there we were able to book 4 rounds and once we played the first we were able to add a few more rounds then cancelled others. Carts are mandatory at $33 pesos per person and could use some repairs but they did save us from... More

Golf was free with our bungalow at Melia Las Americas, so I thought I would give it a try, though I had to play alone and didn't bring my clubs. First, the mandatory cart was 33 CUC EACH person, a rip off (I later learned that there is an under the table system that will save you about 20 CUC... More

Well maintained course with some good challenges. Clubs on hire were good quality and looked pretty new. Buggy supplied was very necessary as large distances between holes. A bit disorganised on reception, almost ignored by two females in the club hire area.

This is a reasonable course but the staff you check in with lack any customer skills, it takes about 30 mins to get sorted with your registration, the caddy master was good though knew his business and was helpful shame the girls in the shop were not more like him. Buggies are really old with ripped seats, don't expect any... More

I have played this golf course every time I have been in Cuba (6 trips) and I am still not tired of it. I play at least once a day if not twice on occasion. You get the ocean side golf, inland water ways, long and short holes. In addition, the challenge is increased by prevailing winds. You can't let... More

Golfed the front 9 on a recent trip to Cuba. The golf course was in good shape, a little soggy in places as it rained the previous night. It's a great course even for beginners. Was met by chickens/roosters on I think the 3rd hole......never had that happen before but better to have them come up to the golf cart... More

nice course reasonably priced can take up to 5 hours to play due to large volumes of players. Greens weren't the best but were in fairly good condition.$125.00 per round with clubs and cart included

We were there each day in late December and late January. Best shape we've seen. Lots of work being done in the fairways by additional workers. Each morning, the grass is always being cut and the bunkers raked to make it look its best. Easiest to pay cash each day - fast! If you pay by credit card and are... More
