Gran Ventana - Golf near by

My husband is a golfer and I'm aware of the course by the resort - does anyone know if your a guest at Gran Ventana if there's a discount to play golf? Are there other course around besides the one in the complex? and What's the cost?

Hi joannewayne,

According to the Gran Ventana website this is what I have found about guests wishing to play golf.

For clients of VH Victoria Resort:

Besides the adjacent 18 hole Playa Dorada golf course, our golf concierge is also skilled in pre-book golf tee times at the nearby 18 hole Playa Grande golf course, one of the most spectacular golf courses of the Caribbean - also designed by Robert Trent Jones Sr.

Ask for our special golf features & packages at preferred rates (such as unlimited golf, afternoon golf, twilight golf, packages of 5, 11 or 16 Green Fees, etc.)

or you could contact the Playa Dorada Golf Course through this contact in the link below for up to date rates.

Here is info on the Playa Grande Golf Course.

Hope this is of some help to you.

Do understand that Playa Grande golf course (a beautiful course) is no where near by the hotel. In fact it is about an hour and a half drive from the hotel. So you will need some sort of transportation which will most likely be more then your green fees. But if you are an avid golfer the course is worth the effort.

Also note that the fairways can be in terrible shape sometimes, but the views are unreal.

Just to add to BobK's posting about transportation to Playa Grande Golf Course if you book through the Playa Dorada Golf Course to play at Playa Grande they have specials which your transfers to and from are included in their prices.

If your husband is an avid golfer, Playa Grande is a "must play". 10 holes on a cliff directly beside the ocean.. Ocean views from 7 of the other holes.
