TPC Dorado Beach (Sugarcane course)

4-star: Above average course - well worth a visit.

Est. 1971

TPC Dorado Beach (Sugarcane course): now the sole companion to TPC Dorado Beach's highly acclaimed East course, the Sugarcane is a well-rated and always popular layout. This tree-lined and open parkland course should not disappoint, with many attractive features and several excellent holes to enjoy. Plenty of golfing challenge, a well-crafted design and usually good upkeep all contribute to the appeal of this course.

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).
