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.
