Beautiful ocean front course in Punta Cana

This is the most beautiful of the La Cana Golf Club's three 9 hole courses, with many holes along the ocean or facing the ocean with challenging wind. It is a spectacular designed course that invites you to take risks, with both rewards and penalties depending on your results. I highly recommend this course.

The price I paid for 18 holes was discounted, so expect higher pricing - but with it.

Uncrowded, relaxed top notch golf in the Caribbean

This is one of the three 9 hole courses that make up La Cana Golf Club at Punta Cana, Dominican Republic. This is a P.B. Dye design golf course and has all the typical Dye challenges. It has a couple of holes along the ocean and the rest in a tropical setting, all part of the Punta Cana Resort & Club. The price I paid was as a guest of a Villa owner for 18 holes, so expect to pay higher prices for your game. You can play either the Arrecife or the Hacienda 9 hole courses to complete 18. I recommend this course!

Value with ocean views and fabulous amenities

La Cana may check in a notch below Corales, Teeth of the Dog and Punta Espada, but it's probably the best oceanfront value in the destination. This isn't a resort course so much as a member-for-a-day experience. When you book a tee time at La Cana from one of the Punta Cana resorts, bring your swim suit and a change of clothes and make a day of it. There's a private beach steps from the clubhouse, as well as a pool, spa and excellent outdoor dining. When they told us about their $2400/yr membership package, I was ready to start looking at real estate.

The Hacienda nine is the most recent addition, added in 2012, but you'll want to stick to the original 18. Each side has oceanfront holes and views.

If you're in Punta Cana and want to play golf but are not sure you want to pay the big bucks for Corales or Punta Espada, you will be more than satisfied with La Cana, especially if you embrace the total amenities package offered here.

La Cana plenty of fun, great views

If it wasn't for Corales and Punta Espada, La Cana wouldn't take a backseat to any course in Punta Cana. As is, though, it's definitely a must-play at the Puntacana Resort, with its ocean views, interesting holes and playability. In addition to the course, there's the Puntacana Beach Club, great dining and the Six Senses Spa, which is the perfect way to end your day after a day of terrific golf.

A chill vibe at La Cana

Sometimes it's nice to step away from the pretentiousness of a five-star private club like Corales. Sometimes, you just want to relax. And that's what La Cana provides. The whole beach club vibe is very much alive. Non-golfers flock to the pool and the beach and dine for lunch on the patio. The golf almost feels secondary, even though it's definitely worth playing. Holes on the Tortuga (nos. 5-6-7) and Arrecife (nos. 7-8-9) nines touch the shore for a few picturesque moments. The risk-reward short par 4 seventh on Tortuga is my personal favorite, although there are plenty of choices.

Destination Golf course

In any other place this would be the best golf course in the area - but Punta Cana being such a hot vacation destination La Cana is probably one of the top three alongside Cap Cana and Arrecife.Make no mistake this is a destination golf Course.

The Hacienda nine starts in the back of the property and weaves itself through this area . It is probably the most challenging of the nines that include some very fast greens and water hazards in some holes. There are houses built on the edges of some of the fairways , but they are barely visible and do not come in play for the most part.Holes 4 and 6 where the stand outs of this nine,

The Tortuga Nine- starts from the clubhouse and begins the journey out to the beach culminating on hole 4 with a par five with an ocean view from the green and hole five a par three right on the beach where a slice into the prevailing wind will end up in the ocean. Avery difficult approach into the the water surrounded green on the par four 6 follows making it the toughest hole in this nine.Number 7 green is also adjacent to the beach. This nine finishes on the elevated green on number nine that gives you a very nice view of the whole area.In contrast to the Hacienda nine these greens are a lot slower, specially during summer months.

The arrecife nine was closed for maintenance during my visit but this is the crown jewel of this course,. The finishing two holes run along the beach and are absolutely gorgeous with this nine also featuring an island green.

Caddies are suggested although not required but are an absolute bargain at 30,00 us per cart.The staff was very friendly and the clubhouse has an open air bar perfect to have a drink after the round.

i have written quite a few reviews for this website and this is one of the very few that I have given 5 stars. This is most definitely a cant miss golf course for the avid golfer where beautiful holes along the ocean and and a great design marry to produce a challenging (specially in the wind) and memorable experience.

BEAUTIFUL!

This was th most gorgeous golf course my husband and I got to play in DR. The golf course was being worked on by dozens of men, yet when we got close they stopped what they were doing and moved toward the perimeter of the hole. They were absolutely silent and as still as humanly possible until we completed our last putt. The staff was extremely friendly and very helpful. They jumped at the chance to help us with loading, unloading, cleaning, etc. The course itself was in immaculate shape. Every single thing about this golf course was amazing!

Worth it for the scenery alone...

As my title suggests, this course is worth it for the scenery alone. My new bride drove the golf cart as I played, but the camera seemed to get more action that my clubs did.

I did end up shooting a +3 that day, which was excellent for me. Breathtaking scenery and a fun challenge along several oceanside and water-surrounded greens.

Will play again when I return to the D.R.
