Stayed at hotel nearby & knew about this course from my research beforehand.
Course was a real test for the mid handicapper (or any for that matter!) - but not ridiculous. Fairways were fair (could risk the driver at most holes), lots of bunkers
4 tee positions meant that you could pitch your game accordingly - apart from 'tournament' at rear, there was then 'blue' (back) or 'white' (middle) apart from forward (ladies). We chose blue and the course played accordingly.
Great condition - fairways , bunkers, greens especially - partly because it's expensive to play, perhaps people took a bit more care, not always the case with holiday courses.
If not staying at Iberostar the green fees were $200 ($135 twilight) plus hire of clubs etc
Not cheap for a Brit, but as I'd taken my own clubs it was contained somewhat and I had no other costs. The complimentary buggy was seen frequently - this made things a little better.
Overall, I was glad I played the course - would definitely enjoy another go at it next time
Take spare balls though - if you miss the fairway by much you are in the 'woods' !

if the course on this resort wasn't good, it would have been a complete flop of a trip. Course wasn't overly difficult, greens were insanely well manicured. It was the saving grace

A well organized staff, ready to make the day memorable. The carts were modern and filled with beverage. The course is challenging but also forgiving. The greens were well kept and sloping to make the game interesting. The view is great all over the golf course. You can take some good pictures. You have to stay on the grass and not slice into the rocks, or the bounce could take your ball into the woods. After the game, the staff is ready with cool towels and drinks. It is a short walk to the hotel or you can take a shuttle. Great experience.
