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. « less

Wow. This is the most amazing course ive ever seen. Think of Peeble Beach but with Caribbean blue seas crashing against the rocks. This place is unbelievable. The course has some of the most amazing views I have ever witnessed. There were tons of beautiful coconut trees on the course as well. One of the maintenance workers chopped one down... More

Golf heaven! Played a round with my two golf buddies. I've played a lot of courses in the US and Mexico...some good, some bad but Punta Espada is in a whole different league. Every hole is gorgeous. The scenery is breathtaking. Conditions were great despite their having punched and sanded the greens recently. Our caddy was Frank. If you can... More

This has to be the best golf course I ever played because of the scenic holes and played literally next to the ocean. It like something off a postcard. The 13th has to be the signature hole.. Absolutely stunning par3! The level of service at the resort was excellent and our caddie was very good. Overall a great day and... More

I am a PGA professional from Miami Florida, with both collegiate and European tour experience. The experience from a service aspect was excellent. The staff was both friendly and helpful. The amenities are modern with a feeling that reminds you that you are in the Dominican Republic. And the golf course and and views are as good as I have... More

Played course yesterday and all the reviews are true. This is the most beautiful course I have ever seen. I played from the Back tees at the Caddy's recommendation to get the full effect. This place will take your breath away. Memories for a lifetime!

I had the opportunity to play this course with my 60 year old father and we are still talking about this a week later. I have to say I have only played a few "nice" golf courses but I truly believe I will not play anything better than this. Very costly however you will never play a course like this... More

6 people from our wedding party enjoyed a splendid afternoon on the golf course. The beauty of the course was highlighted by the well manicured grounds. The use of an electric cart made play very efficient even though we appeared to be the only ones on the course. The course was lined by many beautiful villas. The only downside was... More
