Fun course with an Awesome 16th hole by the Ocean

The staff was very friendly and happy to have me there at their course. The course is in decent shape, except the bunkers are bad. The bunkers are being redone so right now they are bad, but when they are completed they will be very nice. The layout is fun and somewhat challenging. There is lots of water hazards. For paying $200 I expected the course to be much nicer and in much better condition, but the course went through a MAJOR hurricane less than 9 months ago, so I didn't expect too much as far as pristine course conditions. The greens were a little shaggy and bumpy. The highlight of the course is hole #16 which sits right next to the ocean (hence the name Ocean Course). The scenery and ocean were spectacular. The wind coming off the ocean make the long, par 3 hole very challenging. I really enjoyed playing the course except for the bunkers. Hole #16 makes the entire round very worth while. The clubhouse is closed due to renovation. The temporary clubhouse is a portable trailer.

Great scenery, nice course.

The course played well. It has some great scenery, so don't forget your camera. Overall had a great time playing the course, went on a weekday and wasn't crowded at all. I recommend this course if you get a chance to play there.

Disappointing

I arrived a day early, planned on hitting some balls at the range. Took the hotel shuttle and was informed the range was closed - no staff to run it that day. Next day I arrived at 9am for my 11am tee time - no one greeted me. Wanted to grab some breakfast at the restaurant, then hit balls. Was told the restaurant didn't open until 11, and the range was again closed; this time because of the rain the previous evening. Cart was at least 8 years old - cart path only restriction. Cannot believe they charge almost $200 for this course - I did get it at half price through GolfNow and STILL feel like I paid twice what it was worth. The ONE ocean hole is very pretty and the overall layout is decent. Condition was not what I expected from a high end resort course.

Mystery yardage

I made the mistake of paying full price, not really worth playing at the rack rate. Saving grace was they let my nine year old son play for free. Course was in marginal condition, definitely needs a refresh. We followed a charity tournament and they didn't rake traps. The easiest improvement they could make is to add yardage markers! Most holes only had 150 sticks so I was guessing for my approach shots the whole round. The course is in a beautiful location; wonderful scenery abound. Could be a golf destination with some improvements.

Great at discount rate

Great value at the discount rate. Most courses in PC are way to overpriced. This course was very nice-well maintained and in overall beautiful shape. The signing was limited and without prior course knowledge a bit confusing. Play with a person who knows the course. Greens are not super fast.

Great Carribean golf experience

From start to finish, my experience was excellent. I booked on GolfNow for the Hot Rate and played 18 holes of speedy golf for well under a hundred bucks. Played the front 9 by myself (and about 50 iguanas... very cool) in about an hour. Joined up with a twosome on the back and still finished in 3 1/2 hours. Like others have mentioned, the "Ocean" course is a bit of a misnomer, but the par 3 along the beach is quite a hole 238 from the back tees. Beautiful!!! I look forward to more visits to Puerto Rico and I will surely be back to the Ocean Course at Rio Mar!

Needs an Overhaul

Really run down. On a par with a mediocre public course in the states.

overpriced River course

I played the River course at Wyndham "resort" I knew i was in trouble when I saw/heard they had gas carts , I overpaid for this course at $128, not worth it, later did I learn they had a round on golf now for $50, that's about what it's worth, course was so so, greens fair but not fast, range was $15 for all day good deal.

Older Layout in need of yardage markers

Unlike River Course, this older design needs a refresh from the designers and yardage markers both in fairways and at the multiple tee boxes available. Guessing in windy conditions not fun as I left several shots out there due to no yardage help. Bring range finder. For the money though (booked thru golf now) u save big.... Like the design but would prefer playing River course. Much more challenging... only 1 hole on "Ocean" course and was nice..but expected more holes near the sands.....
