Its so easy, people are very friendly, the course is in superb condition, the green fees I clued free lunch and if one wants, breakfast. Very professional and still, challenging course to play. I been there several times this year and was never disappointed.

Very well maintained course at the Barcelo Bavaro Palace. Bring lots of balls as there are many water hazards. Rental clubs are decent. Course was wide open when we were there so we had a quick round.
