Where2Golf says: 

Punta Blanca Golf Club: Set just one kilometre back from the ocean, behind a pink wall and plenty of tropical vegetation, this well-maintained parkland course is a great starting point for any golfing trip to Dominican's burgeoning Bavaro/Punta Cana area. Although you will not be tested by knee-trembling carries over the Atlantic's rocky foreshore and sandy beaches, this very good Nick Price design will allow you to unwind and stretch those golfing muscles in a very pleasant, tropical parkland environment. The layout's relatively open feel combines with good-width fairways to provide ample space for the big timber to be used on most occasions from the tee. However, you'll need to be mindful of expansive sandy waste areas, good bunkering, areas of taller grasses and occasional greenside water hazards, all of which lie in wait for the seriously errant shot. The usually large and smoothly undulating greens will certainly test your putting skills, while avoiding the elliptical and often deep bunkering around them should be one of your key scoring strategies. Two of the three back-nine par-3s require carries over wetland areas to reach the safety of their tree- and bush-surrounded greens. The three short holes on the inward-nine are balanced and alternate with three good length, nicely contoured par-5s. Punta Blanca may not be one of the toughest courses in the area, but its excellent design, absence of housing around the course or along any fairways, and easy-going tropical parkland charms ensures a rewarding outing for golfers of all skill levels.
