Playa Dorada Golf Club is set on relatively flat ground on the north coast of the Dominican Republic. Designed by Robert Trent Jones, the course opened for play in 1976.

The layout weaves its way around the 250-acre Playa Dorada resort and naturally, in addition to the golf, there’s plenty here to keep the non-golfer entertained. Four greens are situated tantalisingly close to the Caribbean Sea and lakes protect five others. With wide generous fairways and little rough, Playa Dorada is set up for enjoyable holiday golf and it’s certainly a pleasant resort course.

Most people who play here are likely to be on holiday, so it is an easy course to like because of the atmosphere. The course is relatively flat and not that tough to play even during a first visit. There are a number of memorable holes especially in the middle of the front 9 and the crashing of the Atlantic at this point adds to the drama. I think I am right in saying that the ownership has changed recently and the need to improve parts of the course has been recognised. The greens at the moment do not appear to have the correct grass and are very slow – this along with making the bunkering a stronger feature must be priorities. The 18th hole (Par-5 with a lake to the right of the second part of the fairway) is probably the pick of the holes. The course is worth playing but as yet do not expect to be blown away. NB – The clubhouse is a wonderful building and has a brilliant international feel to it.

This place stinks overrated overpriced bad condition mostly green are mostly roped off and the bunker play more like hazard. You will pay over $140 dollars to play her $85to play 20% tax $15 for the caddy which plus tip. You get nothing for you this. do yourself a favor and read all the bad reviews those are all the true once. all the great reviews are obviously employees. When you get there you would notice that nobody is playing golf nobody's in the clubhouse nobody in the pro shop and it soon aparent why. this place is a complete ripoff.
