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

Enjoyed the course immensely. Greens are slower which takes getting used to. Layout is great, nice variety with two very different nines. The two ocean side holes are awesome, and the 18th is jaw dropping beautiful. Some of the amenities (course washrooms, carts) are run down. Will DEFINITELY play again when I return to Cuba!

Booked two early morning rounds through our resort agent. Arrived in the dark at 06:20 for a 06:40 tee time to be told by the receptionist the shop not open until 06:30. Three Spanish speaking golfers however were served directly after us by flashing cash! Our voucher was eventually accepted and we were told to get clubs next door and... More
