Punta Espada Golf Club

Punta Espada is the first of three Jack Nicklaus Signature golf courses to be developed at Cap Cana. Opened in November 2006 it is already listed among the world’s finest courses, with the renowned Golf Week publication ranking it as the “#1 Best Golf Course in the Caribbean and Mexico” and Golf Digest as the #63 in the World. Eight holes play along and over the sea. From all points of Punta Espada, golfers are blessed with extraordinary views of the Caribbean, where the sea contrasts against the emerald fairways and the perfect greens.

Although Punta Espada is a highly bunkered course, Nicklaus has created grand fairways, and most players will never scramble for balls,  there are no excessive contours on the putting surfaces. The layout is competitive and resort-friendly with the distance from around 4,500 yards to about 7,100 yards. That does not mean it’s simple, particularly when the breezes are picking up. The thirteenth par-three is truly one of the toughest holes to be encountered in the Dominican Republic, despite the right-hand side of the bailout area and the oversized putting surface. From the tips, even for the pros, it can be tricky, particularly if it is playing downwind as the green falls away and is semi-blind from the tee.

Signature Hole

The hallmark hole, of course, is the par-3 13th, which plays 250 yards from the back tees and is mainly all carry to the green peninsula. Make sure to keep an eye on the prevailing wind conditions as this hole can be significantly shortened down breeze.

Make sure to also play a round on the Tom Fazio Corales Golf Course at Punta Cana
