Average course, small greens

The greens where aired a few weeks ago, therefore they where in bad shape. Not one of the best golf courses in Punta Cana, but then again cheap green fee.

Surprsingly Goof

I stayed at the Royalton Bavaro Resort.. The fact the golf course is only few minutes of the resort I booked a tee time. From the outside didn't look as great but once on the golf course, the layout iprovide a good and fair challenge,, nice fairways and very soft greens. I played the week before in Orlando in top clubs and this course beat all of them.

I will surely like to go back...

Punta Blanca

Booked on HotDeal so price was reasonable for this course. All staff were very friendly (as are most Dominican people I have met on this trip.)
Range is included however they are in desperate need of new range balls. Had the course to myself except for a few 4 somes. Layout is very nice for a resort course. Tee boxes, fairways and especially the greens were all in very good condition! Bunker’s definitely need attention. I would not pay the posted regular rates, however if the regular rates were in the $60-$80 range, different story. Overall, a good spot to play some nice golf and I will go back. If you want ocean views and $300 rates, there are many other choices in Punta Cana to choose from.

Putting greens are the redeeming factor

This course has seen better days. The driving range is small and has had a lot of play so not a lot of opportunity for regrowth, and the range balls are pretty beaten up but at least they were available. It’s a pretty normal layout until 11 when you have to drive through a factory to get to 12-16. Fairways were inconsistent, but not terrible. The greens were the best of anything on the course as they rolled consistently, and had minimal divot damage from local/tourist play.

Just wasn’t highly memorable. I’d play it for less than $40 if I just wanted to go out and practice my game, but not with guests or for more than that.

Great Course

We had an abosultely great round of golf. It felt like we had the whole course to ourselves. So our pace of play was what we wanted to play. We played it under 4 hours. The coruse cindition was good and the greens were true.

Very poor conditions

The general layout is interesting but the greens were in very poor condition. The fairways and roughs were acceptable, sand traps were a little bit dry, but the greens were the worst greens I’ve seen in 30 years playing golf. After 3-4 holes we even considered ending the round and asking for a refund. Some staff were nice but overall, I wouldn’t recommend this course.
