Playa Grande Golf Course
Playa Grande Golf Course, completed in 1997, is located on the North Coast of the Dominican Republic, straddling the towns of Rio San Juan and Cabrera.
The golf course was designed by Robert Trent Jones, cut into the cliffs over the sea and includes 12 oceanfront holes. Underground springs supply abundant fresh water, and the neighboring land is small farms and forest.

Gorgeous course along the coast with unbelievable views. The course is perfectly maintained and a great challenge. The caddy was extremely knowledgeable, friendly, and courteous. It's not a cheap course however, one of the most expensive I've ever played but well worth the money. Amanera is an amazing resort and I can't wait to go back again. Don't miss out on this course if you get the opportunity.
Rees Jones does his father proud with redo
Somewhat reminiscent of Pebble Beach, the new Playa Grande is certainly worth the trouble of flying to the Dominican Republic and driving an hour and a half to the new Amanera Resort. While the routing on the front nine remained largely the same, Rees Jones completely rerouted the back nine, reversing some of the holes to provide more dramatic views of the Atlantic ocean and surf pounding against the rocks. On several holes,, you have to cross a piece of the ocean, at least from the back tees. And the ocean is visible from every hole. Every hole is memorable, the fairways are generous and there are plenty or risk-reward opportunities. In short., Playa Grande is a blast to play, and if you're like most, you'll want to play it several times.
