Dominican Republic

A favorite golfing destination of former Presidents Bill Clinton and George H. Bush, the Dominican Republic has become one of the hottest spots to tee off in the Caribbean. And little wonder. The DR has an outstanding array of world class golf courses and exclusive resorts set amidst breathtaking white sand beaches and vistas of unspoiled natural beauty. Casa de Campo in picturesque La Romana boasts three courses designed by Pete Dye, including the recently updated Teeth of the Dog and the new Dye Fore, a 7,770-foot masterpiece featuring a  300-foot deep river gorge. Punta Cana Resort & Club, a spectacular beachfront enclave created by Frank Ranieri, is home to the La Cana course. Designed by P.B. Dye, it is a brilliant mix of visual splendor and “Dye-abolical” layout. A 15 foot waterfall and indigenous coral formations distinguish the challenging course at Guavaberry Golf & Country Club, designed by Gary Player, while Playa Grande, a Robert Trent Jones layout, is considered the Pebble Beach of the Caribbean, with ten holes laid out along stark oceanside cliffs. And at the luxurious Cap Cana Resort, the recently opened Punta Espada, designed by Jack Nicklaus, is yet another course generating great buzz. casadecampo.com; puntacana.com; guavaberrygolf.com; comcapcana.com
