La Cana Golf Course boasts paspalum grass (a grass seed that can be hydrated with sea water), four holes directly along the seafront (and an additional 10 with ocean views), and plenty of prestige. Golf lovers appreciate that it's not as crowded or expensive as Punta Espada, plus they say this P.B. Dye-designed course is more scenic than the Lakes Barceló Golf Course.

Previous guests also say La Cana's prices are somewhat reasonable, considering its breathtaking scenery. Some however recommend bringing your own clubs since La Cana's are well worn.

La Cana Golf Course is located on the grounds of the Puntacana Resort & Club on the southeastern coast of Punta Cana. Prices vary for hotel guests and outside players, the number of holes and equipment rental. Those in need of transportation to La Cana should visit the Golf Punta Cana website; visit the hotel's website for more information on the course.

#1 Punta Espada Golf Course

The green fees to play at Punta Espada are hefty, but hear us out before you write it off: This par-72 course is a Jack Nicklaus signature course and the site of top tournaments like the PGA Champions Tour. It's one of the most gorgeous courses in Punta Cana, with winding pathways and a top-notch view. In fact, the sprawling course is most often described by visitors as "golf heaven" – likely because of its mix of the vibrant colors (from sage greens to the aquamarine surf) and various amenities.

Your day rate includes the use of a cart and a caddy (mandatory), driving range practice and water around the course. There's also a restaurant with a patio on-site. As you drive the course, keep an eye out for the million-dollar mansions and the private beach club.
