Dorado Beach— sugar cane plantation

Known around here as the sugarcane course, this TPC plays beautifully from the forward tees. The reviews say it is very challenging — but I am a high handicap ( 20) golfer from the northeast— and I loved the wide fairways, level lies, and a little water once in a while. My only problem was puddles on the front 9’. I guess there has been so much rain and the front 9 had area.s of standing water that seemed to swallow balls. Once I figured that out it was smooth sailing. Very friendly staff. Attentive without being all over you

Not worth the money

If your interested in a round of golf on a course that is fairly easy, and in beautiful condition, and you don't care about paying top dollar for golf....then be my guest.

If you want an interesting layout, with beautiful or at least interesting views, then go play at a resort along the coast.

I played as a single that quickly came up behind a fivesome... A FIVESOME at a TPC???
At any rate, I played through them, and finished my round in 2 hours 45 minutes.

And for a course named "sugarcane" I didnt see a single stick of the stuff growing anywhere.

Great Course

Solid option with a few holes that give you some great scoring opportunities. Greens were a little slow and wet, however, in pretty good shape for August.

Fun round!

Dorado sugercane was a fairly challenging course mostly because of huge amounts of sand traps around the greens as well as fairly intense wind... at least the day we played. My only complaint is that many of the sand traps did not have much sand in them. The $60 Twilight rate is a fairly okay deal but their regular rate of $150 (give or take) I feel I would not be a great deal at that price point. The greens were surprisingly slow, mostly because it had been raining earlier that day and the day before.

First time at Sugarcane - won't be the last

Course was in very good condition and the staff are super friendly and helpful. I was a solo at 8:40 and ended up catching a 4-some a few holes later. They immediately let me play through. Then I played w/ another solo on the back and enjoyed a more leisurely back 9, following a walking 4-some. Total time elapsed was just over 3 hours. Great!

I played the whites based on the slope and course rating. I normally play a course that is only 100 yrds longer and has a lower slope. I came in way under my handicap on the first time. Next time I'll play the blues. Easier than the scorecard indicates IMO.

TPC Sugarcane is a great choice if you are in the Dorado area

We played TPC Plantation Pineapple the first day. The course was in good condition except the bunkers which had little, if any, actual sand so we declared them ground under repair.
Next, we played the TC Plantation Sugarcane course and the course and bunkers were in excellent condition. We played Sugarcane a second time because we enjoyed it so much. The staff was very friendly and suggested we could tee off early if we wanted.

Caribbean TPC

I'm a local PR resident & play Dorado often. I just hate the prices. Especially when it's really muddy. It's the lesser of the 3 courses. Needs some work in the rough areas. The bunkers are hard and full of rocks, yes rocks. The place is beautiful, cannot deny it. Just wish you get what you really pay for.

Great Couse

Great Course Layout The Assitant Pro Ronald was Very Helpful Courteous and Professional It a Challenging But Fair Golf Course. The Overall yardage doesn't Seem Long but the ball doesn't travel as far in the air, So it's plenty Long from the Hold tees. ( don't let the yardage fool you ) Take more Club. At the Twillight rate at 3:00pm of $63.00 you can't beat it Regular rates was $178.00 I played the Plantation Sugarcane Course, Tackling The East Course On Saturday where the Hosted " The Big Break " at. I was booked for the Sugarcane Course again but the staff was really friendly and offered the east up So I'm taking it.

Great facilities, challenging course

I know it's been discussed but if it's your first time playing in Puerto Rico expect ridiculous winds. Course was aerated recently but the greens were still quick. Overall great complex, looking forward to playing the other courses.

Fantastic course

The course was in amazing condition. The clubhouse is gorgeous and the staff could not friendlier or more helpful. The twilight greens fees were very reasonable, especially considering the free range balls, tees and water bottles. The course is challenging yet not frustrating to play even for a novice golfer.
