TPC Dorado Beach (East course): The East course at Dorado Beach is one of the finest championship courses in Puerto Rico ... often rated the island's No.1 layout. This tree-lined and open parkland course is no stranger to PGA Tour and other top-level events, including the World Cup of Golf ... twice. The layout contains a wealth of memorable and challenging holes, excellently crafted by Robert Trent Jones Sr. Definitely a course that will challenge your all-round game, and well worth going out of your way to play.
Originally known simply as Dorado Beach, in its pomp this Stay&Play resort boasted four championship golf courses. Robert Trent Jones Snr laid out the highly-acclaimed East course and its companion West course in 1958. A little over ten years later the resort expanded across the road with the introduction of the Plantation Club and two more championship courses - the Pineapple and Sugarcane layouts.
Following the very destructive Hurricane Maria that swept through Puerto Rico in 2017, the East and Sugarcane courses were repaired and brought back into play. TPC Dorado Beach's West and Pineapple courses remain closed (as at 2020).
Visitors welcome on weekdays and weekends.
Must book in advance.
