One of two courses located within the Catalonia Bávaro Resort in Punta Cana, Alberto Sola designed the Cabeza de Toro Golf Club as a challenging, nine-hole executive course surrounded by swaying palm trees and five lakes for incomparable views.
Jack Nicklaus’ first of two signature courses in the Dominican Republic, Punta Espada Golf Club opened in November 2006 and continues to top best golf course lists. Named Golfweek Magazine’s #1 course in the Caribbean and Latin America from 2009 to 2016, Nicklaus’ work of art boasts eight holes playing either alongside or over the Caribbean Sea–including the stunning par-4 17th, which requires a tee shot carry over a bay–and another five with ocean views. The Golden Bear superbly uses and incorporates the area’s bluffs, beaches, lagoons and tropical foliage into the course’s design. Punta Espada also has the distinction of hosting the Official PGA Tour’s Champions Tour–the Cap Cana Championship–in 2008, 2009, and 2010.
