The newly redone Playa Grande golf course is a challenging but fair with tons of fun spots to drive the green over the cliffs to try for that eagle or birdie! Reese Jones is extraordinarily talented.

Almost every hole on this beautiful golf course has an incredible view of the Caribbean, and is fun to play.

Beautiful and long beach, you can walk for hours. Many stray dogs on the beach. We are dog lovers so we were not bothered. The vendors kept following us. There were many vendors on the beach.

I have been to Golf course a few times, BUT I has been years, is there a hotel on the grounds now, is the course in good shape,and have they really changed some of the holes? Has it gotten expensive, and are the green fees also risen considerably? I stay and play at Casa DeCampo its not cheap, but its a vacation and not something you do all the time. It seems there a very few positive comments about this facility. Is it worth returning ?

Unless you want to spend at $700 a night or more for a room you can't play the golf course.

I understand that the course was going through a renovation. Has this been completed? We are staying at the Gran Bahia San Juan, are there golf specials for guests? And lastly, my wife typically likes to tag along, but she does not wish to play. What will it cost me during the second week of January to play 18 and have my wife ride along?
