Punta Espada Golf Course



When we say You Cannot Even Imagine - We Mean It!

Punta Espada Golf Course may just be the most beautiful venue for golf in the world. This is an unbelievable course that all avid golfers should play at least once. Some balk at the price tag and decide to play elsewhere, but I’ve never seen someone walk off 18 and say it wasn’t worth every penny.

Golf The Caribbean and Punta Espada Golf Course

Golf the Caribbean is now providing an All Inclusive Golf Experience for players at Punta Espada Golf Course. You can book your golf online before you leave home and our Go Golf reps will pick you up at the hotel, drop you off at the course then drive you back to the hotel after your round. The Golf the Caribbean package includes round-trip transportation, green fees, power cart and range balls. This is definitely the all inclusive golf package you’re looking for on vacation.

Punta Espada Overview

Jack Nicklaus designed this course on the Cap Cana complex in Punta Cana and demanded that they give him the best land on the resort to create his masterpiece. The result is one of the most challenging golf courses you’ll ever find with vistas that will make your jaw drop.

Jack carved the course out of the natural landscape which includes cliffs, bluffs, waterfalls and jungle. There are many Caribbean courses that offer nice views of the Caribbean or a hole or two running along its shores, but this is the first course that has a full half of its holes running to or along the banks of the beautiful blue waters.

One of the most stunning holes in golf is the thirteenth on Punta Espada Golf Course. This par three forces golfers to play directly over the bay with a full carry to the green. From the tips you’re looking at a full 249 yards right out over the ocean. The onshore breeze will help a little, but most amateur golfers will be using a full driver here. The hole is made even more daunting by the surf splashing off the rocks in front of the green obscuring your view. This hole is like the 17th at TPC Sawgrass on steroids. The 13th at Punta Espada Golf Course will soon be the most photographed hole in Caribbean golf.

Champions Tour and Punta Espada

Many courses claim to be “championship” courses, but Punta Espada has proved it. Just a year after its opening Punta Espada Golf Course has been selected to be the venue for a new PGA Champions Tour Event starting in 2008. The tournament will draw a 78 player field and feature 2 million dollars in prize money. We’ll see how the pros handle the course and luckily get to see some great footage of this remarkable course.

Plans for Punta Espada Golf Course

Rumor has it that Golfer's paradise will only be open to the public for another year or two – so you’d better play it soon! Jack Nicklaus is designing two more golf courses on the Cap Cana complex that are scheduled to be opened next year. At that time, Punta Espada golf course will become a private course for those who have purchased property on Cap Cana.

We were completely blown away by this course – if you’re a golf enthusiast you should definitely treat yourself to a round at Punta Espada before it’s too late.
