Reviewed 27 April 2014

The Hard Rock Golf Course is a wonderful resort course. The course was in immaculate condition. The holes have generous landing areas and the fairways are firm, so you may actually hit the ball a little farther than expected. Fairway bunkers will be in play regardless of the tee chosen. The greens have significant undulations but the seaside paspalum does not have a lot of grain and stimped at only about nine.

It would be difficult to get in trouble off the tee but many holes have detached bunkers that can lead to misclubbing on approach shots. The "Texas Wedge" came in handy on many holes as putting up over mounds seemed more reliable than traditional wedge play.

One unusual characteristic of the course was that the long par 4s played into the prevailing winds during the week I was there. 430-460 yard par fours represented a challenge.

The 220 yard #8 proved to be the hardest hole on the course, playing into a strong wind with a moderately elevated green.

The staff were very friendly, a trait of the entire Hard Rock Hotel staff..I met the Director of Golf and new carts and rental clubs will be arriving soon. Currently, Callaway clubs are available for rent. All beverages and food were included under the Hard Rock's all inclusive plan.

I have given this course a 5* rating not because it is difficult or has beautiful vistas. If you want difficult go play Ballyliffin in the wind. If you want beautiful views ,play Kapalua Plantation. If you want too play enjoyable golf without getting beat up too badly and possibly score a little better than usual, Cana Bay/HardRock is the ideal resort course. I played 18 holes in well less than 2 hours , playing solo in the late afternoon.

Somehow we managed to meet up w/ a few europeans on Bavaro beach and enjoyed a day at the Hard Rock. It was nice but not as much as the Riu Palace Bavaro.

We were visitors, but loved the restaurant and casino. Service was outstanding. It's a real Vegas-style casino. Next time, we're staying here!

We played two rounds on this course and found the fairways, greens and sand traps well maintained. The practice area was decent and included in your price of the round. Also included in the price of your round (can only vouch as a person staying the hotel) was all drinks and snacks in the club house and beverage cart which had a good section of local beers. Our first round we encountered hardly anyone on the course and zipped through the course but on the second round it was much more busy and encountered some people golfing for the very first time as they were trying something new on vacation but both groups let us play threw after some delays. The course was neither easy or hard and offered a good day of fun. But what was worth even more was watching my boyfriend go from sand trap to sand trap to sand trap to sand trap on the green on the 18th and amazingly enough kept his cool and manage to laugh at the whole ordeal, as they say when you think you are getting good "and then golf happens".

Hard Rock Cafe was very big with shops inside and bar and a huge place to sit and have a drink. The golf club was very big and organized. Not too busy.
