August 11, 2017

Puerto Rico is one of Mother Nature’s finest masterpieces. From the lush greenery in the El Yunque National Rainforest to the serene and sandy beaches that stretch along the turquoise ocean, Puerto Rico paints the perfect background for a game of golf. Whether you play for pleasure, business, or professionally, Puerto Rico is home to some of the finest resort golfing options in the world.

Bahia Beach—A St. Regis Resort

The award-winning golf course at Bahia Beach was created by one of the greatest golf architects known to the sport, Robert Trent Jones, Jr. The exquisite course features challenging greens with views worthy of a postcard. Our world-class resort golfing experience will have you playing at your best as you relish in the fresh ocean breeze and breathtaking splendor all around you. As you are surrounded by two miles of picture-perfect beaches and spectacular views of the rainforest, you will tee off at both 7,000-yard championship tees and 5,200-yard forward tees. Bahia Beach is also home to the Island’s only family tee’s, specially designed for children and beginners by Troon Golf. When you play at the Bahia Beach course, you will have the pleasure of experiencing 14 holes on the water, and when you get to the 18th hole, you will be taken aback by the panoramic view of the ocean on this Puerto Rico Premier Finish hole.

Royal Isabela

Located in the northwest part of Puerto Rico, this resort golfing experience is one not to be missed. Royal Isabela was designed based around the land it sits on, so the sand dunes and canyons you have to overcome were put there by Mother Nature, not by the architects. Envisioned by brothers Stanley and Charlie Pasarell, and designed with help from David W. Phaff, when you play this course, it will be clear that the creators had a deep respect for the natural beauty of this historic location.

Las Casitas Village—A Waldorf Astoria Resort

From its spectacular greenery to its towering palm trees, the resort golfing at Las Casitas Village is extraordinary. The Arthur Hills Golf Course, designed by its namesake, offers a mountainous terrain with backdrops of the ocean and rainforest. After warming up at the 1100-foot driving range, you can make your way through the impressive elevation changes (more than 200 feet), eye-catching fountains, and alluring waterfalls to get to the 18th hole.

From Bahia Beach to the other courses in Puerto Rico, there are ample options for legendary resort golfing experiences on the island. Be prepared to play some of the most amazing golf of your life as you embark on these championship courses.
