This was a very beautiful golf course. I just felt like the price was advertised incorrectly. Our hotel boasted "free golf, just pay for the cart". Well the cart rental was $65 per person, per round, plus $40 for club rental per person, plus balls, tees, and everything else. It cost over $300 for 2 of us to golf 18 holes. Too pricey for advertising "free" golf.

Course was recently redone within the last few years. Beautiful job, and well maintained.

Practice facilities on site for chipping, putting, sand shots, as well as a driving range.

Depending on the time of year you play the green fees/cart fees vary. Guests staying at Barcelo Bavaro Beach or Barcelo Bavaro Palace Deluxe get included green fees depending on the length of stay at the resort. They also offer rental clubs, lessons, etc.

Golf course offers a number of different tees: black, golf, blue, white and red; so there should be something for everyone.

A lot of water and sand traps. Beware of the sand, lots of coral in various sizes, some very large. We found ourselves picking the larger pieces out of the sand to prevent damage to our clubs.

Green fees are included for Barcelo resort guests, but you are still required to pay for cart, which was $65 per person while we were there, so not really free green fees.

There is a restaurant in the club house where you can have breakfast before teeing off. This restaurant is also available for lunch and supper. At supper time, it offers A La Carte meals, and no reservations required. Food is fantastic here, a hidden gem.

Over all, this is a fantastic golf course, and should provide a good challenge for all skill levels.

We played this resort course before they re-designed it and were excited to check it out. The front 9 has not changed much but is very nice the back 9 has changed and is great. Lots of water and lots of birds. Deep water so dont try to rescue your lost balls! Enjoyed it very much.
