The World’s Greatest Golfing Location: Punta Cana

For golfers, the perfect vacation getaway is one that includes a stroll along the greenway. Fortunately, if you are planning a trip to Punta Cana, you can enjoy the very best that the world has to offer in terms of golfing. In fact, Punta Cana is considered to be one of the best golfing destinations and several courses have even been designed by professional golfers.

La Cana Golf Course

The La Cana golf course has 27 holes with three nines called Tortuga, Hacienda, and Arrecife. The courses have fourteen holes with beautiful ocean views of the Caribbean Sea. The La Cana course is designed by P.B. Dye (the youngest son of Pete Dye, a legendary course designer), and is a favourite for golfers all over the globe. In fact, according to Golf Magazine, the La Cana is the “number one course in the Caribbean” and those that want to find out more about nearby accommodation should visit the Club Med site.

What People Think of La Cana

Many people love the La Cana golf course and cannot stop raving about its beauty and challenges. For example, one of the tougher holes that the course presents is the No. 9. It is a 454-yard par-4 dogleg left that requires a lengthy draw. However, even a lengthy draw will not make handling the course any easier. With the course’s raised green and a slope from back to front, it is easy to lose the ball over a cliff and into an awaiting sand trap.

According to many golfers, it is an absolute must to visit the La Cana golf course. With its beautiful views, ocean breezes, surrounding homes, and well maintained greens, it is as close to golfing paradise as any golfer is going to get. However, you may want to consider bringing bug repellent during the summer months.

Many guests also consider the rates to be reasonable since they include a variety of services as well. In fact, you may even be able to hire a caddy.

Places to Dine

While staying in Punta Cana, there are plenty of places to eat to help keep your energy up. For example, options include La Cana, La Tortuga, The Grill, La Chowza, La Yola, El Cocoloba and more.

Other Activities

If you want to take a break from golfing while visiting Punta Cana, there are plenty of other activities available to take advantage of as well. While on vacation, you can easily take advantage of windsurfing, horse riding, diving, snorkelling, sailing, canoeing, water skiing, and much more.

If you want to have a golfing experience that you will never forget, finding a golf course like the La Cana, will surely deliver.
