  • My son and I played this course in the morning, had such a great time we replayed it again in the afternoon. Such a beautiful place, the scenery is incredible, the course is challenging, was in immaculate shape. The tee boxes, fairways and greens were prefect. Beautiful Caribbean sea backdrop, salt spray and great weather made for such a memorable experience. The pro shop staff and our caddy were awesome, for one fee we had breakfast, drinks during the round, use of the range and the caddy. The replay fee was so low I won't repeat it. Definitely a great day, we are returning soon and can't wait to visit Punta Espada.
  • The views and the fact you can touch the water on a few holes is amazing. I have played all over and this is the prettiest course I have played. Greens are fast and the fairways are generous.
  • Played in the David Ortiz celebrity Golf tournament. Great golf course. Well maintained with great ocean views from numerous holes. Plenty of tee boxes to challenge all players.
  • Very bad service and attitude in Golf shop. The weather was horrible we were told it was temporary and would clear up but only hit one ball and packed it in. Threesome at 900 dollars US was a total Waste of money with no Assistance to reschedule. Don't use Tee Off its a rip off, no one returns your calls and they don't answer the phone.
  • I've played the golf course three times and it's a great experience. The course is beautiful and has great views of the ocean. I've played great and terrible there and both times were awesome. Must play!
