A great course for everyone
Punta Blanca is a very challenging course. It’s long even from the forward (white) tee. The greens are small but receptive. Its fairways are generous. The course is well kept.
A friendly yet excellent golf course
We arrived after a heavy downpour. The staff did an excellent job pumping the bunkers off water. We were able to tee off after one hour of delay. First time to play The course and we were impressed by its playability. The course played long even from the white tees. The free sandwich at the turn helped a lot (cooler is filled with ice and 4 bottled water). The staff starting from the pro shop, the starter, restaurant and up to the maintenance were all very helpful and accommodating.
This course will be first in our list next time we visit Punta Cana. I highly recommend this course.
Great golf and value
Excellent course a staff. Some of the bunkers aren’t playable though fewer than in past years. Found it just minor inconvenience. Best value in Punta Cana.
Beautiful course with immaculate greens
The course is very long but has wide fairways to bomb your driver without too much risk. However, missed fairways equal lost balls. Greens are near perfect...large landing area, not too fast or slow, breaks like you expect and receive your approach shots without running out. The rough is rough but somewhat playable. Not much water in play. Plenty or room to avoid bunkers (fairway and greenside) but expect to find a few of the playable wastebunkers because they're on nearly every hole. Had the course to ourselves so pace was perfect.
Hire club woes
I recommend paying for the expensive hire clubs, the basic ones are beyond awful. I wouldn’t pay $30 for them on eBay. Apart from the rubbish equipment the staff and course are nice if a little expensive. I’m going back next week and will get the top clubs, 6 month old Callaways so hope to have a better experience.
Not bad but needs some sand
The course was enjoyable and provided an affordable round during our vacation. As mentioned by others, the bunkers in most cases were unplayable. Just rocks and no sand. It’s worth playing if you don’t want to spend a fortune but there are other options that are probably a little better.
Fun to play
Nice to play in February, not 1 Signature gorgeous hole , hard bunkers , open fairways , good greens , driving range is short so no woods you can hit or driver , carts are good , no ocean holes etc as you can see on google earth , I’d pay no more than $100 a round , clubs are for rent at 30, 40, or 55usd and are good clubs, bring balls and tera from home
Great course away from the crowd
Great time golfing as a single. Pretty much had course to myself until the last few holes. Hard to keep those course watered so a lot of sand is used on greens, tee boxes and even in some parts of fairway. Most traps were hard packed and short of sand. But besides the critiques above, this was a great course. Mostly Wide open but easy to lose balls in the tropical vegetation off the fairways. Beautiful holes and some water features. Just a good time with self and nature. Going back this week. And definitely get your pass on TeeOff.
Average course, good value as HotDeal
Inland course, somewhat dry, nice layout, average maintenance, wide fairways but if you miss, you will loose your ball. Small green with no collars, simple contouring easy to chip from. Traps need more sand. Driving range max 225 yards. Friendly staff. Fast pace.
Front desk not polite / inefficient, course is nice
The staff is highly inefficient and use the language card for their poor manners. As usual, biased towards certain crowd.
The fairways and greens are well maintained. Course is long if you play from the blue tees.
The fees include food/ beverages on the course and after 9 holes. But there’s no food / beverage services on the course per se. Food options are limited.
Normally golf clubs pick you up from the hotel. But I was charged cab fare because I booked through Golfnow.
