Punta Espada Golf Course is already listed among the worlds finest...

Punta Espada Golf Course is already listed among the worlds finest, with the renowned GolfWeek ranking it as the best golf course in the Caribbean and Mexico. Eight holes play along and over the sea. From all points of Punta Espada, golfers are blessed with extraordinary views of the Caribbean, where the sea contrasts against the emerald fairways and the perfect greens. Challenging stroke play and beauty are entwined in this outstanding par 72 course, which hosted the inaugural PGA Tour’s Champions Tour in April 2008 - The Cap Cana Championship. The annual tournament is televised internationally through the Golf Channel and its license-holding subsidiaries.

For people who love golf, Punta Espada is a "bucket list" experience. The words breathtaking, spectacular amazing simply don't describe it adequately. The physical beauty of this course will blow you away. It is a Jack Nicklaus design which speaks for itself. Each hole is unique and gives you the very best of risk and reward golf. I am a... More

I played here twice while I was visiting Sanctuary Cap Cana. Play after 1pm for a discount deal. Play was very quick for us, as we teed off right at 1pm and went off of the back one day to make sure we finished before dark. We finished in plenty of time on one of the shorter days of the... More

This was one the best golf courses I have ever played. It was phenomenal! Caddy was great. Views were spectacular. Greens were well kept and true. Greens fees were fair. I would highly recommend this course to anyone going to the DR.

Dont play Golf but lived Cap Cana and this place was my favorite; the Golf course is always so perfectly GREEN, the ocean views amazing, many Palm trees and you might even take a coconut w/you home! Very nice for an afternoon walk to watch and enjoy the Sunset since no one playing at this time wont be problem!

Unreal experience. The course is immaculate and the views are stunning. The price is reasonable with transportation, range balls, caddies and cart. The course plays easier then it looks so its very enjoyable. Until 17 and 18 when the wind really came into play for us. Francisco our caddy could not of been better. From knowledge of the course to... More

Never played in Dominican and glad I did. Punta Espada is a great course sitting on the ocean. They dropped the rates due to being slow and I think they aerated about 3 weeks ago. So I paid $150 for the golf, $50 for older set of Callaway rentals and then about $50 for a sleeve of balls and a... More

Amazing course! Had a great time playing the course. You might say it is expensive, and I do not disagree. For me this was a once in a lifetime chance to play this kind of courses, and It was to my fullest satisfaction. The course is absolutely stunning, and especially the holes by the sea is worth every penny! Got... More

We booked a family vacation to Punta Cana just because this course has been on my husband's bucket list! The views are amazing and the caddy was awesome! I'm a new golfer, but I never felt like I was being treated any differently. There was no one behind us, so I felt like I had plenty of time to play... More

We have visited Punta Cana for the past 6 years, and each time we play Punta Espada. The beauty never gets old and the course is always in excellent condition. Donnie was our caddie (mandatory) and did a great job, especially on putting tips. The ocean breeze can be tricky, so best to listen to caddie's advice! We stayed at... More
