Activities - Golf

 

Golf is one of the Dominican Republic's top attractions, bringing thousands of tourists in droves to this destination.  What makes golf so popular is the combination of outstanding year round summer weather and the varied terrain.  Caribbean weather allows for play even during rainy days, when brief showers quickly give way to clear skies.  Course architects have incorporated hills and coastline into the design to doubly challenge the golfers.

Playa Grande is a truly outstanding championship golf course on an unusually beautiful parcel of about 2,000 acres on the North Coast of the Dominican Republic, straddling the towns of Rio San Juan and Cabrera.

The property has great topography; with hills and cliffs and 5 miles of exposure to the Atlantic Ocean, including a wide, mile-long beach. It is lush and undeveloped, with old trees and Royal Palms. On the western coast, Robert Trent Jones built his final golf course; perched above the cliffs, it offers breathtaking views of the ocean and the lush country side, making it one of the most exciting golf courses in the Caribbean.
