One of the best things about golfing on this island is the range of courses. There are four very distinct kinds of courses located here. If you enjoy the challenge of playing on a course that features very few water hazards and offers a great view of the water, you should play on one of the links courses. If you would rather try your skill on manicured fairways and lush greens then you might want to consider the parkland course.
There are quite a few beautiful golf courses in Puerto Rico that are considered to be of the seaside variety. These are similar to a links course, but offer fairways that are a bit more tailored and have a higher elevation than the traditional links course. If you decide you would like a complete change, you can move onto a scenic mountain course.
If you feel that your game is not quite up to standard, you can take advantage of one of the many driving ranges. There are putting greens available if you want to hone up on your short game. If you do not want to travel with your own clubs there are numerous places which rent them. This island caters to every golfing need.
When visiting the island you can arrange to stay in one of the fabulous all inclusive resorts. Many of these hotels include the use of their course as part of the package. If you do decide that you want to try one of the other courses, there are a number of public courses. Additionally, some of the resorts have a semi-open policy. They do permit the public to play on their course when it is not busy.
What could be better than spending your vacation in a tropical paradise? Late night walks on the beach and beautiful hot sunny days playing golf.
One of the best is the Flamboyan Course at Palmas Del Mar.
Championship golf course designed by Reese Jones considered one of the longest and most challenging in Puerto Rico.
Ranked number one in Puerto Rico and among the top five courses in the Caribbean, according to Baron’s Magazine, the Flamboyán Course offers picturesque views of the ocean.
Fairways of the Flamboyan course at Palmas del Mar fan out alongside a 20-acre freshwater lake, some intersecting the Candelero River while others border the Caribbean Sea so water certainly plays its part in proceedings here.
The signature hole is the 12th, a solid par three which requires a sturdy blow from the tee box into the prevailing wind to a raised green that sits behind a canal with the island of Vieques as a beautiful backdrop. If you are a serious golfer make sure the the courses of the Palmas Del Mar Golf Course are on your list.
