Playa Dorada Golf Course

Unrated: Well regarded course not yet visited by the Where2Golf team.

Est. 1976

Playa Dorada Golf Course: A long way from the major golfing centres on the east coast (Punta Cana/Bavaro) and south coast (La Romana/Juan Dolio), the Playa Dorada resort is located in the north of Dominican Republic, near the busy oceanside town of Puerta Plata. The Robert Trent Jones designed golf course here is predominantly used by golfers staying at any of the seven or eight resort hotels in Playa Dorada. At times quite open, at others more tree-lined, this pleasant parkland course gracefully weaves its way around the Playa Dorada domain. Occasionally passing the resort hotels, the layout strikes down to the ocean for two or three beachside holes on each of the two nine-hole loops. The flattish terrain, contrasting with impressive mountain vistas inland, makes Playa Dorada an easy walking course. With generally good-width fairways and nicely-shaped, flattish bunkering, this is a golf course on which handicappers of all levels can hone their skills.
