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.
Past visitors called the course "fantastic," "spectacular" and a "bucket list experience," though they do warn of extremely high prices.
The prestigious Punta Espada, located along the southeastern coast of Punta Cana, is the one of three courses for the Cap Cana resorts. The cost for playing 18 holes during peak season (mid-November to early April) and peak hours (7 to 11:30 a.m.) is $395. Available packages range from 18 holes to five rounds and vary based on the time of year and day. For more information on pricing and to book tee times, visit the Punta Espada's website.
