Welcome to the fabulous Iberostate Bávaro Golf & Club, created by leading designer P. B. Dye. This magnificent course boasts a length of 6,897 yards, a rating of 73, and a 126 slope. The 105 white silica sand bunkers dotted throughout the course form an eye-catching contrast with the intensely green Supreme Paspalum grass, perfect for this tropical region. Together with the lakes, streams, and even some desert-like features, it creates a combination of colors that is impossible to be forgotten. Simply put, an irresistible temptation for both Pro and Amateur guests staying either at our fine Iberostar properties or at any other resort nearby.

We bought 14 round of golf with 4 remaining. We have to take a taxi to the golf course to go and to come back. Upon every visit, the taxi driver speaks in Spanish to the guards and he opens the gate. The last time we went, they wanted some ID, we did not have any with us especially since... More

Golf course does not have any spectacular views like some on the island. The playing conditions were however very good (and that's what really counts). Course is not very long but does have its challenges. Greens are mostly elevated and well protected. Sand traps are soft (Except waste bunkers) but very few have rakes ! Pick-up service from hotel was... More

Pros: excellent guest service of picking up/dropping off guests from their respective resort, customer service oriented, lovely staff, well manicured golf course however several of the cacti were noticeably dead & should've removed & replaced. Cons: confusion at start with 3 groups getting ready to go out to First Tee but lack of clear direction from starter & ensuring adequate... More

Course very nice and fair. I am roughly a 14 handicap and played first nine from the blue and back from the white and it was good (6100 yards). The fairways and greens are in excellent shape. I saw many staff working on the property and the service was excellent. Great day and great fun + met nice people.

The woman who sets up tee times is nice and helpful. My husband and son did the twilight golf two days. They enjoyed it...they sent a transfer to pick you up.

Loved that they let the two young men golf and let me ride in the cart with my son. I sort of functioned as their caddy.

So impressed with the condition of the course. Friendly staff! We were able to rent clubs and went golfing at twilight rates. Clubs were new and professional brands. Want to come back!

The course could have been in better shape, but was fun to play in the warmth and sunshine. Bring your dollars though, because it is not cheap. Cheaper to play in the afternoon.

Booked via the concierge at the Excellence resort. All club, transportation and golf was included for a very reasonable fee. Course was beautiful and greens were perfect.

Played 5 rounds over two weeks during Christmas and New Year's weeks. This is a fun course and a good challenge for both high and low handicappers. I played from the White tees, my wife from the Red. Both produce course lengths similar to what we play at home. Course was in great shape and staff was wonderful. Grendy from... More
