TPC Dorado Beach (West course)

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

Est. 1958

TPC Dorado Beach (West course): GOLF COURSE WAS CLOSED IN 2017, possibly on a permanent basis. Check for current status before planning a visit.

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 inclusion of all four courses under the TPC banner (Tournament Players Club), it now appears that the West has been "retired", perhaps on a permanent basis. The Pineapple course was also forced to close, following considerable damage caused by Hurricane Maria in 2017. The still excellent East course, and across the road, the Sugarcane course, continue to fly under TPC Dorado Beach colours.
