PUNTACANA Resort & Club

No island in the Caribbean comes close to the Dominican Republic in terms of golf—for either quantity or quality. The entire coastline is dotted with top courses by top designers including Gary Player, Jack Nicklaus and Robert Trent Jones, Sr., but it is the Punta Cana region that has the highest concentration of great courses. A large, dramatic peninsula on the east coast, Punta Cana is the country’s main vacation destination, home to a dozen highly lauded golf courses and about 40 major beach resorts, many of them all-inclusive.
