Where2Golf says: 

Cocotal Golf &Country Club: Contrasting with Punta Cana's newer, high-octane oceanside golf courses, the 27-holes of Cocotal Golf & Country Club will also give your game an excellent work-out, although in a more gentile, tropical parkland setting. The Hibiscus and Bougainvillea nines are usually paired for competition purposes, although the Benjamina-nine, equal in length to the Hibiscus, is also pleasantly challenging. The entire course is laced with a wonderful variety of indigenous tropical flora, which allows any housing to merge unobtrusively into the background. The garden-like naturalness of the course remains throughout, with coconut palms, smaller cana trees and a host of other trees and bushes defining the generally good-width fairways. In typical Gancedo style, you'll also find the occasional tree out in the middle of the fairway. There is even a rockery and old well to skirt around on the par-4 5th (Bougainvillea). At the very good par-5 17th, a veritable forest of palms seems to occupy the tee-shot landing area, making this a somewhat intimidating and at first-sight, a bewildering hole. The par-3 16th and par-4 18th (also on Bougainvillea) ensure that this well-designed, enjoyable parkland course delivers a rousing and challenging finish.

Did you know?

Situated just 1 km back from the ocean, Cocotal is located in the heart of the Bávaro area, in close proximity to many top level resort hotels. This is where Dominican's famous palm-fringed, white sand beaches overlook calm, turquoise waters, which are protected by a natural coral reef that runs along the entire coast. A UNESCO report highlighted these as some of the best beaches in the world.
