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. 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.

“Punta Espada-MM”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 18, 2013

It was very expensive. We chose to save some money and tee off after 2:00 PM, but it was not busy, and we could have teed off earlier. We still paid $250.00 each, plus $25.00 each for a fore-caddie. The cost for a couple was $550.00, plus it was an hour's drive from our hotel. Even though it was a very nice course, I don't think the value was there.

“Golfing in Punta Cana”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 16, 2013

The golf course was not a difficult course. So, it was much more fun for those of us who do not golf everyday.

“Scenic and challenging”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 16, 2013

This is one of the most challenging courses we have played in Punta Cana, due to the course layout and it's location. The landscaping is beautiful and playing so many holes by the memorizing sea made it difficult to concentrate on my shots. Depending upon how you play, the trade winds can either allow you to earn more pars or they can play havoc with your shots.

The staff is friendly and professional. They made the experience wonderful from start to finish. The caddy was quite knowledgeable and fun. He certainly was an advantage to my final golf score. I would hate to think what my score would have totaled without his astute assistance.

Too pricey but what a fantastic day!!

“Fun, well kept and amazing views”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 13, 2013 via mobile

Course was in great condition! Fun, but challenging in the ocean wind. So many beautiful views. Our caddie Pedro was very good as well. Just too pricey. I've played throughout the US (7 hdcp), off resort prices shouldn't run nearly $400 USD (with transportation, caddie, cart, green fee). The place isn't Pebble Beach. Worth 200 or so. Would give it a perfect rating at that price.

“Great”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 8, 2013

A wonderful, challenging course. Expensive but worth it. Great condition. Caddies know their stuff, too. The wind can make it nasty!
