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.

“One of my favorites!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 29, 2013

Yes it is expensive at 375 per round but it is a real gem, with 8 or nice holes on the ocean and the others extremely well designed!

“Stunning views”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 27, 2013

This was a treat for me to have a day golfing. The course is well kept and the views are stunning. One of the best days of my holiday, what a way to spend your days. Great service and the staff were wonderful.

Thank you for the kind review. Punta Espada is truly an amazing golf course. This is a Jack Nicklaus Signature course and has ocean views from all 18 holes. While we have an amazing golf course it wouldn't be great without great people working there. Thank you for the kind review.

“Pebble beach of the carribean.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 25, 2013

Ask for Francisco for your caddy. He's amazing . I didn't think about 1 shot,he just handed me a club and it was right every time. I didn't play as well as I hoped . it's almost impossible to play to your potential when you're staring at all the beauty surrounding you. He had some great stories about celebrities that play there. So ask for Francisco and tip him well.

Thank you for the kind response. Punta Espada has been compared to Pebble several times and we appreciate the comparison. Both are great courses. Punta Espada has ocean views on all 18 holes and 8 holes are on the ocean. I think any course would be difficult to meet those requirements. I'll pass along your comments regarding Francisco. The caddy program has been around since the course opened and several of the guys have been there for years. Again, thank you for the kind review and we will look forward to seeing you again at Punta Espada.

“The Most Breathtaking Golf Course!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 21, 2013

This golf course is just breathtaking! My husband and I felt so lucky to be there and enjoy the course! Martin was our caddie and he was wonderful! He gave us many great tips about the course and he was a very nice man.

“Hard to Beat Views”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 31, 2013

Almost half of the holes are on the ocean with expansive views. The greens are well kept, facilities are great, and services was perfect.
Come prepared to pay for your round unless you are staying at a nearby resort, the fee to play here is high but worth it.
