Truth be told, several things go hand-in-hand. One of them is a round of golf in a tropical lush of green grass and Punta Cana. Yes, the Dominican Republic’s headquarters of golf courses.
Tucked away from the mainstream everyday hustles of the modern United States, Punta Cana represents one of the most enticing vacation spots, not just in the Dominican Republic, but also in the Caribbean at large. The golf courses here boast of majestic grandeur and are well-watered and trimmed throughout the year.
That aside, here are several things you need to know about the amazing golf experience in Punta Cana before you hit the road or book that plane ticket.
- Most Golf Course are Integrated into Fully-Fledged Resorts – Save for a few stand-alone/community golf courses, most of the luxurious, lush green golf courses are part of the resort establishments. So that means that you will have to be part of the accommodation package before accessing these ultra-amazing facilities. However, this shouldn’t be a bummer as most of these are 4-star and 5-star deluxe resorts that can be easily accessed from Punta Cana International Airport by cab.
- A Round of Golf in Punta Cana comes with all the Perks – Unlike in mainland US, paying for a round of golf in Punta Cana resorts qualifies you for a number of additional perks added with the intention of making the entire experience even more exciting. This includes a complimentary golf cart, accompanying game souvenir and a guide/instructor for newbies. You don’t have to bring your gear – just in case you find bringing your clubs on your flight to Punta Cana inconvenient – everything is provided to the guests on site.What’s more, a good chunk of these resorts offer 15% off on Spa treatments for their golf-playing guests.
- You Don’t Have Just to Play Golf in Punta Cana – The best thing about Punta Cana resorts is that there are located in a beautiful part of the tropical Caribbean that is mostly sunny throughout the year. So if you’re not teeing off in a 45-hole world class lush golf course, you could be sipping bourbon off the coast of the Atlantic. There is a whole other lot of activities you can engage in Punta Cana, and this includes surfing, snorkeling, scuba diving or simply just sun-bathing.
- You Can Also Book Online – While booking, bear in mind that most of the golf resorts in Punta Cana expect a four-night minimum stay in their facility and Dominican taxes and accompanying gratuities are included.
