The magnificent ocean-front vistas of La Cana Golf Course will captivate the most discerning golf design connoisseurs, while its well-fortified greens challenge the game’s toughest competitors. After one round, avid enthusiast and casual player alike will understand why Golf Magazine has compared La Cana to Pebble Beach and declared it the “number one course in the Caribbean.” Designed by P. B. Dye, La Cana boasts fourteen ocean-view holes with four playing right on the water’s edge, and its state-of-the-art Seashore Paspalum grass allows for maintenance with minimal environmental impact. No serious player can take a golf vacation to the Caribbean without testing his or her chops on this stand-out course. Now offering new Enhancement Packages with its sister course, Corales, no serious golf can come to the Dominican Republic without playing a round on these world-class courses.

In 1996, the first time I played this course conveniently located to our Club Med resort, it was a 9-hole course with 9 more under construction. Twenty years hence, there has been considerable good development of the area. The course is now 27 holes (with 9 more planned) made of 3 nine holes: Tortuga (the old front 9), Arrecife (the... More

I played this course while on a golf trip in Punta Cana. The course is nice (primarily because of views and proximity to sea.) It's not as nice as Punta Espada or Corales, but it was enjoyable, and the course was in good shape. I would play it again.

La Cana is a 27 hole course with three separate 9 hole courses that can be combined differently to play 18. I recommend playing Tortuga and Ariceffe which are the original 18 designed by PB Dye. The finishing three holes on Ariceffe are simply stunning with ocean views that remind me of the finishing holes at Pebble. The course is... More
