Punta Espada Golf Course is already listed among the worlds finest, with the renowned GolfWeek ranking it as the best golf course in the Caribbean and Mexico. Eight holes play along and over the sea. From all points of Punta Espada, golfers are blessed with extraordinary views of the Caribbean, where the sea contrasts against the emerald fairways and the perfect greens. Challenging stroke play and beauty are entwined in this outstanding par 72 course, which hosted the inaugural PGA Tour’s Champions Tour in April 2008 - The Cap Cana Championship. The annual tournament is televised internationally through the Golf Channel and its license-holding subsidiaries.

Tough to beat how gorgeous Punta Espada is. It hits you right off the bat when you climb to the top tee on the par-5 second hole and gaze toward the Caribbean. Their ocean side holes are better than the sea side holes at Corales....More

Excellent course, meticulously maintained. Fairways that had grass as well maintained as our greens at home.

I loved my caddy. He was very helpful and wasn't afraid to share many details about his life. The views are magnificent as many of the wholes overlook the water which make the round very very pleasant. I need to go back!

This course is ranked by many as the #1 course in the Caribbean and I am certainly not going to dispute the ranking. It is visually stunning and offers numerous heroic shot options involving the ocean, tidal pools and sandy waste areas. The wind frequently...More

We travel with four couples.. women are all beach bums, and the husbands are golf nuts. When we travel, good golf is a must. The guys loved it and enjoyed it more than Teeth of the Dog at Casa de Campo.

Answer - yes they do. They offer Taylor Made for Women and both Taylor Made and Titleist for Men. Perfect for us as we are casual golfers. (I'm actually horrible so any clubs will do, but these were very nice)

It depends on the time of day and if you are staying in Cap Cana. If not staying in Cap Cana, rates are between $175 and $295. That includes taxes, caddy fee, range balls, and bottled water.

$400 is a lot of money, check Teeoff or Golf Now. I will say this though, if there ever was a course to do it, this one is it!
