The nation of the Dominican Republic belongs to the island of Hispaniola and has been the second largest Caribbean nation with the second largest economy. The country’s tropical climate is one contributing factor that made Dominican Republic the largest tourist destination of the Caribbean as well. To top the major attractions, the year-round golf courses have been attracting the most number of visitors together with world class gambling and the magnificent national parks. A jam-packed Caribbean vacation would be mostly about snorkeling, windsurfing, boating, kite boarding, and golf.
Casa de Campo and Punta Cana are two of the leading golf destinations where signature designed courses can be located.
Casa de Campo is a tropical seaside resort that was developed with the Ponderosa-style and is among the most complete resorts located in the region. Three decades of international recognition has made the resort a haven for golf enthusiasts. Among the golf layouts thriving in the resort are the Teeth of the Dog, which was ranked 34th in the top 100 courses in the world, The Dye Fore, a golf layout with the greatest par three holes in the world, and The Links Course, a challenging layout by Pete Dye set in a moderately hilly track of guinea grass and tall Bahia.
Punta Cana has been considered as one major resort that is now part of the Punta Cana-Bavaro County. Known for the beaches that faces the Caribbean and Atlantic, Punta Cana is a popular tourist destination since the 70s. Some of the top-quality golf courses include the Roco Ki – Faldo Legacy Course set in the contrasting environments of elevated headlands, the Punta Espada Golf Course at Cap Cana – the first Jack Nicklaus signature golf layout, the Corales Golf Course which was designed by Tom Fazio, and the Catalonia Caribe Golf Club by Single Alberto and Corrie Jack.
