If you love golf, you’re going to love Puerto Rico, the golf capital of the Caribbean. There are currently 23 spectacular golf courses on the island and six more are underway.
You don’t need to be a world champ to appreciate the beauty and variety of our courses. Most have been designed by golf luminaries such as Robert Trent Jones, his son Rees Jones, Greg Norman, George and Tom Fazio, Jack Nicklaus, Arthur Hills, and Puerto Rico’s own Chi Chi Rodríguez. The courses are feats of landscape architecture that impress golfers and non-players alike.
All of Puerto Rico’s courses share the island’s year-round summer weather, tempered by the cool, gentle breezes of the trade winds. You are almost guaranteed a brilliant tropical sky and glimpses of sparkling white sand beaches backed by the blue Atlantic or the turquoise Caribbean. The greens are truly green, planted with strains of Bermuda grass adapted for our climate, including Tiff Dwarf and GN1, a new hybrid, developed in Florida by Greg Norman.
Many of our golf courses are part of world-class resorts, so after you have played to your heart’s content, you can relax in the pool and recharge your batteries in the spa before getting back to breaking par. You don’t have to be a hotel guest, however. All courses – except those on military installations, which are limited to authorized personnel – are open to the general public.
Whether you are a first timer or a seasoned pro, Puerto Rico has the perfect course for you.
