Golf courses in Dominican Republic
There are a total of 23 golf courses in the Dominican Republic, all of them of a commercial and tourist nature, but what is striking is not the quantity but the quality; all the great names in golf course design, such as Pete Dye, Jack Nicklaus, Robert Trent Jones Sr.
great names in course design such as Pete Dye, Jack Nicklaus, Robert Trent Jones Sr., Gary Player, Tom Fazio, Nick Price or Greg Norman have left their stamp on the island. Of all the courses, the magic triangle of golf stands out, made up of three of the best courses in the world; Diente de Perro, Punta Espada Golf and Corales Golf Course. All three have been the venue for the most important competitions, hosting tournaments on the PGA Tour, PGA Champions Tour and the Latin American Amateur Championship.
They say the all-inclusive was invented in the Caribbean.
The hotel offer is impressive and luxurious resorts offer a wide range of services at unbeatable prices. Beaches right next to your room, activities for the whole family and a wide range of gastronomic options are just some of the attractions. From Casa de Campo Resort & Villas in La Romana to the exclusive resorts of Cap Cana in Punta Cana.
Much more than golf
Because golf is not the only thing our clients live for, golfers who travel to the Dominican Republic can also discover the colonial past of the historic centre of Santo Domingo or the most paradisiacal beaches of fine white sand and crystal clear waters. We recommend the more touristy beaches such as Bayahibe or Bávaro or the tranquillity of the Samaná Peninsula, one of the few places in the world where it is easy to spot the famous humpback whales. In Samaná, natural sites such as the famous beach of Las Terrenas or the Limón waterfall stand out.
More isolated and exclusive is Bahía de las Águilas, another paradise beach that is part of the Jaragua National Park, a protected area in the province of Pedernales. As an area dedicated to environmental conservation, it has no hotels or restaurants. Very close to Casa de Campo, a visit to Altos de Chavón is highly recommended, where you can enjoy a concert in a unique amphitheatre or be amazed by its nature, which inspired Francis Ford Coppola in his film Apocalypse Now. As a curiosity, it is worth mentioning that this was not the only filming on the island.
The Godfather, Jurassic Park and Fast & Furious are just some of the films that have been set in the Dominican Republic. The leisure and gastronomic offer is another of its attractions, such as the Cap Cana marina or Casa de Campo Resort & Villas. If you still have time to spare and are a lover of other sporting activities, you should know that our destination is one of the best in the world for fishing, diving in any of its modalities or simply enjoying its calm waters with a sailboat ride.
