Golf Adventures Tours
Duration: Half Day
Golf is one of the Dominican Republic's most popular activities, attracting thousands of tourists in their droves to this beautiful Caribbean destination every year. What makes this sport so popular is the combination of fantastic year-round summer weather, varied terrain and unique tropical courses that provide vistas of some of the most beautiful scenery on the island. Enjoy a golf adventure tour during your holiday in the Dominican Republic and you can enjoy all this and more.
The Dominican Republic has become one of the world’s favourite exotic golf holiday destinations. Occupying two thirds of the island of Hispaniola (which it shares with Haiti), this beautiful country offers over 20 golf courses, some of which rank amongst the finest in the world. Architects have incorporated hills and coastline into the course designs, which provides golfers with even tougher challenges, and spectacular panoramic views of the ocean and Caribbean coastline can be enjoyed as you play.
With plenty of courses to choose from, you will be spoilt for choice, but some of the best and most beautiful can be found close to Cabarete on the North Coast. This is ideal if you are staying in or around the area, which is renowned for offering a huge range of outdoor activities both in and out of the water. One of the most beautiful golf courses in the Caribbean is Playa Grande, designed by the famous architect Robert Trent Jones, which boasts an 18-hole course along the cliff so you can enjoy magnificent sea views as you play. Playa Dorada, designed by the same architect, is another popular course on the North Coast.
Being able to play golf all year round is just one advantage to visiting the Dominican Republic. The wonderful tropical Caribbean weather enables you to play even on rainy days, when brief showers quickly give way to clear blue skies. You are amongst some of the most beautiful surroundings in the world. Play amongst lush tropical gardens, swaying coconut palms and picturesque lakes, and atop steep coral cliffs that offer spectacular views of secluded coves, white sandy beaches and sparkling turquoise waters. The paradise surroundings are unbeatable.
You won’t need to worry about packing golf clubs, or even knowing how to play golf, to enjoy this popular sport. Golf clubs offer reasonable fees and equipment rentals, and different types of golf packages are available for both the serious and the recreational player. Most golf clubs also offer coaching and one-to-one lessons from internationally recognized golf pros. Regardless of your handicap, the Dominican Republic’s courses promise a challenging and unique experience that can be enjoyed by everyone. Combined with the relaxed Caribbean holiday atmosphere, it would be hard to find a more idyllic destination to tee-off.
