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.

The best course on the island

We had a great caddy and the course was in great shape. The views were breath-taking. Thanks to the caddy, we didn't lost one ball

My brother and I played Punta Espada on 6/1/15 and all I can say is WOW! The pictures that you see of this course do not do it justice! The course is even prettier in person, and I truly find it hard to believe that there are even a handful of courses worldwide on the same level as this course... More

First of all, just one of the 2 most beautiful and scenic course that I played (the other is tres vidas, Acapulco). I went there 4 times on 2 different years and the condition was always excellent. Feeling alone on the golf course with excellent caddie (mandatory) who rapidly sized my swing and length for clubbing. I prefer it to... More

I have died and gone to golf heaven! Just got back from Dominican and played 18 holes at this beautiful course. I have played some nice courses and have some of the best here at home in Michigan but this was by far the nicest course I have ever seen and played. Obviously, the ocean setting is what put it...

This was the most scenic course I have ever played. Beautiful course and excellent condition. Fast greens. Although some reviews complained about the staff, we actually had a great experience with the staff there. Our caddie, Rafaela, was great and he knows the course and the greens very well. Yes it was expensive to play there but it was worth... More

We come here every year for a golf tournament and this is one course we play. It is simply awesome and very well kept... Lots of wind and difficult! The staff is not very friendly... Something that does catch our eye as all other services in Pta Cana are impecable! Caddies could be better... Change the people and you will... More

I have been to Cap Cana twice in the last 3 years and played this course 6 times. I would come back just to play it again. Have played many great courses and this may be the best. Challenging, amazingly beautiful and in great condition. If you are a golfer, it is a must play in the world!

I just returned from a family trip to Punta Cana and played Corales, La Cana and Punta Espada. I'm a six handicap which I mention only to lend perspective to my impressions of the course(s) played. Having played many of the top courses in the US, along with a number in the Caribbean including Teeth of the Dog, Corales and... More

The course was in pristine condition. Every hole was better than the last. We played as a twosome and got around in three hours.
