Renowned for having the most magnificent golf courses in the Caribbean region and Latin America, the Dominican Republic is the undisputed leader of golf in the tropics. At least seven of the DR’s courses have consistently topped Golf Week Magazine’s Top 50 courses in the Caribbean and Mexico, including Punta Espada in the top 10, Los Corales—where the 2018 PGA Tour were held in the Dominican Republic—and Teeth of the Dog, at Casa de Campo, in the number one spot since 2009.


From La Romana to Punta Cana, Juan Dolio, and Puerto Plata, the DR’s courses, counting 86 sea-facing holes and 39 ocean-side, offer you tee time by the sea, or along lush inland courses designed by the most acclaimed golf course architects, including Pete Dye, Jack Nicklaus, Robert Trent Jones Sr., Gary Player, Tom Fazio, Nick Price, and Greg Norman.



Whether champion or hobby player, you’ll enjoy trying your hand at our spectacular courses.



Renown as one of the best golf courses in the Caribbean, and ranked among the top worldwide, Teeth of the Dog is on every golfer’s bucket list.

The Links, a moderately hilly course has several lagoons and lakes that are popular with wading birds, and features tall, dense bay and guinea jungle-grass rough, as well as numerous bunkers.

Breathtaking views over the Chavón River Valley and seven cliffside holes are just some of the highlights on this magnificent Pete Dye golf course.

With four spectacular holes directly overlooking the sea, Ocean’s 4 is one of the best courses in the Caribbean, and one of its most enjoyable. Located at Playa Nueva Romana, 35 minutes driving distance from La Romana and 1 hour and 15 minutes from the Punta Cana airport.

Playa Nueva Romana Golf Club is a 9-hole, par 3 executive course designed by architect Jack Lund. It is part of the Playa Nueva Romana residential project developed by the Grupo Piñero (Gran Bahía Príncipe hotels).


The Costambar residential community golf course has nine very different holes, the longest being a 355-yard par 4. It features leafy fruit trees like mangos, Spanish limes and coconut groves. An executive course, it is easy to play two straight rounds using the different tees.

Designed by Robert Trent Jones, Sr., this 18-hole course offers five holes with sea-views, including one adjacent to the Atlantic Ocean. Relatively flat, it is known for its outstanding conditioning: greens are generous, featuring water hazards and strategically placed bunkers.

Playa Grande Golf Course is not only the last course Robert Trent Jones, Sr. designed, but considered among his best. All 18 holes overlook the Atlantic Ocean, with 10 that are played directly ocean-side, and the course spreads out along a hilly area atop cliffs.


One of two courses located within the Catalonia Bávaro Resort in Punta Cana, Alberto Sola designed the Cabeza de Toro Golf Club as a challenging, nine-hole executive course. It is surrounded by swaying palm trees and five lakes for incomparable views.

Part of the Catalonia Bávaro Resort, Alberto Sola and Jack Corrie designed the 18-hole Caribe Golf Club for golfers of all skill levels. This course features a large lake—impacting holes 5, 6, and 15—five lagoons, and numerous shaded trees.

José “Pepe” Gancedo designed memorable routings for Cocotal Golf & Country Club’s three nine-hole courses. The six-time Spanish champion used the natural terrain of an old coconut plantation for all 27 holes, including serene lakes and swaying palm trees, with Mother Nature providing constant winds.

This 18-hole Tom Fazio creation, featuring six oceanfront holes set on rocky cliffs next to the Caribbean Sea, quickly established Corales Golf Club as one of Dominican Republic’s must-play courses.

A Jack Nicklaus-designed course, Hard Rock Golf Club at Cana Bay presents golfers of all levels with an 18-hole challenge as winds blow through native tropical vegetation, extending right up to the edge of the fairways.

Golfers of all levels will delight at Pete B. Dye’s inland 18-hole Iberostar Bávaro Golf Club including Dye’s signature sand bunkers, lakes, and rock features, all tucked amid lush landscape and elevated terrain.

The Pete Dye-designed La Cana Golf Club is a 27-hole course consisting of three nines, with 14 ocean-view holes, and six memorable holes that play right on the beach.

The first Caribbean course designed by three-time major championship winner Nick Price, this 18-hole saltwater-tolerant paspalum grass course hugs natural wetlands, and features wide fairways with large bunkers, and several lakes.

Jack Nicklaus’ first of two signature courses in the DR, the 18-hole Punta Espada Golf Club continues to top best golf course lists. Nicklaus’ work of art boasts eight holes playing either alongside or over the Caribbean Sea, and another five with ocean views.

The first course to open in the Punta Cana area, The Lakes Barceló Golf Course was designed by Juan Manuel Gordillo and redesigned by Pete B. Dye. Crossing through a lush mangrove forest with 25 inland lakes, 122 bunkers punctuate and protect the course’s sculpted fairways.


Built in 1989 and designed by Jack Corrie, Cayacoa Golf Club is located just 25 minutes northwest of Santo Domingo, yet remains a well-kept secret. The 18-hole, par 72 course stretches over a hilly terrain punctuated with small lakes and a handful of terrific par 3s.

Isabel Villas is a simple course with nine par 3 holes that borders the Isabela River near residential communities. It has lights for playing at night and is open from 7am until 10pm during weekdays, and to 8pm on weekends.

Built in 1947 as the first golf course in the Dominican Republic, Santo Domingo Country Club was set up by foreign executives who wanted to continue playing golf during their stay in the DR. The “Country” is the capital city’s most exclusive club.


Short and flat, the course was built for the executives of the large Falconbridge mining company in the city of Bonao. It was designed by an assistant to Robert Trent Jones, Sr. who also designed the Playa Dorada golf course in Puerto Plata. Bonao is 1 hour driving distance from Santo Domingo.

Designed by Gary Player, the 18-hole course borders a nature reserve. Although it quickly earned a reputation as a tough course, it is playable for golfers of all skill levels thanks to five sets of tees. It’s located approximately 30 minutes from Santo Domingo.

Designed by Charles Ankrom, the 18-hole course features numerous artistic bunkers, and lakes and mounds that perfectly complement the surrounding beauty of the Caribbean Sea.

A pine grove lines the fairways of this golf course in the rolling hills of Jarabacoa, the only one of its kind in the Dominican Republic. Because of the many changes in elevation, it offers different challenges than most golfers are used to. Local folklore says that Robert T. Jones helped design the course on a napkin.

Las Aromas is a city golf course with panoramic views of Santiago, the Cibao Valley and the Yaque del Norte River. It was designed by Pete Dye during the same period when he completed his masterpiece the “Teeth of the Dog” in La Romana. With ascents and large inclines to challenge golfers, it has four par-3 holes, two par 5 holes, and 12 par 4 holes.
