Not as nice as the Champion
I stayed at the resort the weekend after the Puerto Rico Open, unfortunately the course they played (Champion) was booked the whole weekend for local tourneys. Playing the International was fine, but wished that I could have played the Champion. The course has a hilly side (front) and a forest feel (back). The tee boxes, fairways and greens were fine, but if you are in the rough, just a lot of different grasses and weeds. As you drive into the resort you pass both courses, but only see two holes of the International, the rest are the Champion. The back was ok, but it felt really scary back there. I played by myself and 7 of the 9 holes are lined with tropical trees, (it was pretty, but being back there just felt strange). I will say on the back, especially the 12 hole, you will see a lot iguanas.
Booked a tee time for the International Course and was upgraded to the Champions Course. The scenery was amazing. More signage needs to be added as to the route to the next hole on some. More water stands need to be added because of the heat out there. I saw the refreshment cart when I first started and never saw here again, and it was a hot one that day. Other than those minor things it was a great playing there. I would definitely do it again if I were to return to Puerto Rico!
Great but course needs better signs to the next hole.
Loved it all but the signs between holes need improvement.
Its all about thendeal
Really enjoyed the International. Spectacular views on a couple of the front side par 3's Got a GN hot deal for a C note
championship course was towards the beach side and the international course was towards the mountain side and had elevated tees. both sides were nice just depends on the view you would like. no gps on carts.
Exceeded my expectation!
I paid $100 on Golfnow to play the International course, finished in 2 1/2 hours and offered to play the Tournament course at no additional charge. Both courses are challenging, especially the PAR 3 from the gold tee, lots of elevation and rolling greens, lpve the layout, remind me of some Michigan courses, which is quite impressive on a Caribbean course. The tournament courses is flatter than the international, but the last 4-5 holes are near the ocean, very scenic and picturesque. These last few holes are affected by the winds from the ocean which make it much more challenging to select the right clubs. Another signature of Trumph"a courses are the amount of acreage used for the layout, there are spread out quite vastly, some hole to hole distance ate unusually far. Overall I enjoyed it tremendously.
Golf get away PR
Great time. The only downside was you pay for the course and club house only to find the the club house is for members only and there were non there. Puzzling. Aside from that the course was sweet and well maintained. The staff does not stop running the motors during play so that is a drian on concentration. Bring your A game and have fun.
Beautiful views and challenging course
The course was in great shape and there wasn't many people playing, so were able to play at our own pace and enjoy the scenery. Wouldn't recommend walking, there is lots of distance between holes, so take a cart. The green rolled very well and you had to hit a varied of shots. Overall very enjoyable round of golf.
Fairway or Jungle?
Great course. Stay on fairway and be rewarded. Get off the fairway and the iguanas and jungle eat your balls. Had a great time.
Played several courses while in PR...this was my favorite because greens were nice, layout unique(front nine in the hills, back nine in the jungke), other course conitions good as well...large, undulating greens, long par 3s made scoring tough, but fair...tips only 6700 or so....fairways for the most part very wide...nice Tom Kite design
Staff makes it a great experience
Awesome layout and the people working there make it well worth the trip
Definitely need a cart.some long distances between green to tee, particularly on the back 9.
Great round of golf!
The greens and fairways were in excellent condition. The course was challenging but fair. Overall a fun day in PR.
We had an early tee time and there was no food or beverages available (granola bars, coffee, or even water). The staff was incredibly friendly and eventually found bottled water. This was extremely surprising as it's a resort course and I'd imagine most people are not from the area. Needless to say, it didn't get off to great start. The course itself was in pretty good condition, but the layout was definitely on the bland side. Greens were very well kept and fairways were good except for a few patches being reseeded. There were 2 elevated par 3s (holes 2 and 8) with great views of the facility. The routing of the holes is the most awkward I've ever seen and there were multiples times where we'd had to double back to holes, and several very long cart rides between holes. Pace of play was amazing. We teed off first and literally didn't see another golfer until the 8th hole.
Unfortunately, based on our experience, I would not recommend this course. Our Proshop experience was: "here is your ticket ... give that to the starter", end of conversation. We arrived early on a Sunday, had a noon starting time. The restaurant was not open, so we got a "sandwich" from the half-way-house, which took 20min to prepare, and had little taste to it. The design of the course is fine, but nothing special. For some reason the course was VERY soggy (We played courses in Farjado and Humacao which were firm and dry so I can’t explain the contrast). Because the course was wet, the fairways and greens were shaggy. There are some unusually long drives in between holes ... which is fine, however, our cart lost its charge and we had to have someone phone in to the clubhouse to deliver a new one. The person who called in was not the beverage cart staff, because they were practically non-existent. We saw them 1 time, on the 8th green. The practice area here is good.
Course was very wet
It was wet, driving range closed, so that was disappointment. Course had some wet spots, Drainage problems I suppose. Holes could be marked clearer. Thx Wayne
The International course includes holes with elevation changes (unexpected) and thus creating picturesque views.
I played this course as a "single" and the pace of play was not a factor. The course itself was in great shape and I preffered the layout of the International course rather than the Championship course. I would recommend this course to anyone when visting Puerto Rico.
The course was a little "tricked up" for a resort-style course.
I played the International Course, which is not laid out very logically. It also goes through low-land wetland areas that are not very visitor-friendly. The course layout was also a little quirky, with par 3's that play across a roadway, and blind tee shots to fairways. Course probably plays better a second time around once you know the course layout.
