I have played Playa Dorada close to 200 times over the years. I really enjoy the layout, very playable but challenging as well. Most holes require some course management. There are riskier routes over hazards that can pay off if executed but will cost you if you don't. However they all have generous bail out areas as well. The conditions... More

First as the options of the ratings are either Very Good or Average, then I choose average. In reality I think the course is a Good one. It is rather simple, the maintenance is not of the highest standard and the pricing (including green-fee, caddie-fee, caddie tip and drinks) of 100 dollars for a round could be considered a bit...

played there with friends and great view, just on the beach with a great ocean view. but the green is very wet and poor maintenance. overall, if you just want to play for fun, this is a great place to go, but if you are a serious golfer, this one is not a good choice.

for a trent jones design I think he had a few rums before he designed it. It is nothing special and I think the prices are way more than they should be. Plus you will probably be told you have to take a caddy and a cart (both???) Love the idea of caddies as they work hard and know the... More

My group consisted of my daughter, a 6 from the mens 6,300 yd, a traveling buddy, a 10, and myself, another 6. The layout is the best in the Puerta Plata area and very enjoyable in its own right. We played 3 times during the 7 day vacation, the 1st at Las Aromas, Santiago (a pete Dye). The 2nd at... More

We took the freestyle catamaran from playa dorada, it is a beautiful place to see, very different than the beach at the Riu Bachata.

Much improved since our last visit, The facilities and the golf course are receiving much needed attention & the results are positive. Cost of playing and food and beverage at the club house is very reasonable.

I was privileged to play this course. I'm a golf hack but the gracious caddy politely encouraged me and instructed me on this top 100 course. I had a wonderful experience.

Golf course was in good condition however Prices were a bit steep . Iv noticed that the caddie subject is continuously mentioned, I think by making caddies compulsory there should be a set tipping fee (ie good caddie 10 £ tip for one and if not then less). From my experience I had 3 different caddies. Chichi was brilliant and... More

The course was very enjoyable. Take plenty of water. Caddies were really friendly. Always use a buggy.
