Owner description: 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.

The annual tournament is televised internationally through the Golf Channel and its license-holding subsidiaries.

Third time I played here and cannot wait to return next year. Gorgeous course. I am a 28 handicap, female golfer, and although challenging for me, this was eminently playable from forward tees. Husband liked it a lot, too (22 handicap). Beautiful clubhouse and our caddie, Raphael, was outstanding. Highly recommend.

I played the course twice on a recent visit. It is a really fun; challenging and fair course that is beautifully maintained. The course is picturesque throughout with amazing water views on more than half of the holes and on quite a few of the holes the water was crashing on the rocks by the greens or the tees. I... More

Stunning golf course in fantastic shape and an extremely memorable round. Highly recommended and tough enough to challenge the most accomplished golfer. Nicklaus hard but stunningly beautiful.

My husband & I played golf three times here and had a blast! The course is challenging but with guidance from our fore caddy I had some decent rounds. Best views with most holes along the ocean. Expensive but really made our trip more enjoyable since we had so many issues with our hotel. Orlando was our favorite - he... More

Wonderful round of golf! Espada reminds me a bit of Spyglass with the views and Ocean holes. Course was in great shape and my caddie Ruben was excellent. Be prepared to play out of many waste bunkers as well as stiff winds off the ocean on many holes. A course not to be missed although pricey.

Don't miss this opportunity if you are going to the Dominican. The golf course is set on an absolutely beautiful piece of property with views of the ocean on probably 13 or 14 holes.

The course is a typical Nicklaus design where you need to be in position on all approaches. Some very small greens, which require precise shots. As good as it gets for anyone who enjoys a true test of golf. Superb condition and stunning views of the ocean

The Punta Espada course was recommended to me based primarily on its scenery. Absolutely on target in that respect, as over half the holes offer views of the Caribbean. As a test of one's golf skill it is more than okay, but that's not generally what this course is all about. The views are the thing, and even the inland... More
