The magnificent ocean-front vistas of La Cana Golf Course will captivate the most discerning golf design connoisseurs, while its well-fortified greens challenge the game’s toughest competitors. After one round, avid enthusiast and casual player alike will understand why Golf Magazine has compared La Cana to Pebble Beach and declared it the “number one course in the Caribbean.” Designed by P. B. Dye, La Cana boasts fourteen ocean-view holes with four playing right on the water’s edge, and its state-of-the-art Seashore Paspalum grass allows for maintenance with minimal environmental impact. No serious player can take a golf vacation to the Caribbean without testing his or her chops on this stand-out course. Now offering new Enhancement Packages with its sister course, Corales, no serious golf can come to the Dominican Republic without playing a round on these world-class courses.

Very beautiful golf course. It has 27 holes i.e. 3 different types of course. The most beautiful are the ones closest to the sea (I am intrigued by tough holes). Course is well maintained and greens are rather fast. It is not too technical but for sure longer than usual. Driving range is professional and huge. Putting green is small... More

Hello Kermit-Lecce, As you well just mentioned, our golf course superintendent and his team work day in and day out so La Cana can be in the best shape possible. They take a lot of pride in their work. Tortuga and Arrecife are both excellent courses and the ocean views may distract you as you finish your round. I'm very... More

I thought this course was comparable to private US courses that I have played. It was pretty nice but advertises itself like you are playing on the ocean but really its only 1 hole. DO NOT BUY BALL AT THE COURSE $72 a dozen. The Caddy was great and we had a lot of fun. Club rental was $50 but... More

Hello Mike. Thank you for your comments about our caddy and the quality of the clubs. Your comments on the ball pricing is accurate as the government imposes a 38% customs and import tax plus an 18% sales tax. We advise direct bookings to bring their own golf balls! As you know we have three nines and when you played... More

I played the course on 8/10/16 with my son and we were paired with a gentleman from the Houston area. We played the Hacienda and Tortuga courses (both are 9 holes). The Arrecife course was closed due to maintenance. We booked the outing through Apple/Amstar, which is who I booked our travel. The fee was $150 each and included round... More

This was my first time and my husbands second time golfing here. It has amazing ocean views on a few holes that make it worth the extra expense for the round. They do require a paid caddy which is addtitional $30/4some + tip which we weren't told when booking. I don't really think he added much benefit to the round... More

This golf course is fantastic, breath taking views. Its one of my favourite golf courses I have played, and I have played quite a few. Even though it is a golf course, you need to bring a Camera out on the ocean holes, beautiful photos. Caddies are extremely HELPFUL.

My husband golfed 18 holes and the views here are absolutely incredible. We are recommending all our friends to golf this course, it is an absolutely must do. When we got back to the resort, my husband told EVERY SINGLE PERSON who was at the pool bar that they absolutely had to golf this course.
