Nice course for their price (don’t use golf now to book it)
Course has interesting terrain and surrounding jungle like forest plus several water features. The spacing of golfers made for quite a bit of waiting for my wife and I but we still finished I about just under 4 hours. Biggest gripe is Golf Now listed this as a hot deal at $155 per golfer. The resorts regular charge is $75 per player. So I prepaid and felt a bit bad about paying more than double. There was plenty of wind, elevated tees and water carries to make this interesting
Great DR Golf
A wonderful course that has a great mix of holes. You can score well if you think your shots through. Beautiful scenery and the course is fair. Wonderfully maintained
Surprisingly beautiful course
The green fee was lower than courses we played (Hardrock, Iberostar and Cocotal). As first, we thought the course must be a so-so, matches with its low price. It turned out this is the best of the 4 courses we played in Dominican Republic. Condition was great, very interesting and variation of layout with combination of water, bunkers etc. Hole 9 was particularly interesting if your ball ends up in the bunker - so don't ! Another must play course.
Course was included in our stay, however $65 for half a cart. Ok layout but nothing out of the ordinary!
Great course to play
The Lakes course at Bavaro Beach is a real gem. A typical Dye course with its ondulating greens, hidden bunkers and easy roll offs if you are not carefull. Not a long course but very tricky. Lots of water but does not really come into play. Watch out for the bunkers on 5 and good luck with #9. Overall a great place to play. Staff was wonderful. We had a staff member pick us up every morning with a cart at our room and drop us off after our game.
