If you find yourself in the La Romana area, and have your own clubs with you, I'd Highly recommend that you give this course a try. The fairways are very well kept, and the greens are pristine. Don't try to call and set up a tee time, because no one will answer, Moreover you don't need a tee time. The three times the wife and I played there this trip, the parking lot was empty, and we started play immediately. We had no one slowing us up, and nobody pushing us. (Seems this Resort is a Bank repo site, but they are keeping open the golf course, and bar to the Public.) Hence no clubhouse phone active. This course, being from the Dye Families design house, is very challenging. Whomever it is, is doing a fine job maintaining course. Not to mention that four people can play here for what one could play at Casa De Campo. (Caddie still a must.) Just take the plunge and take your clubs, in a taxi, over there. You Will Not Be Disappointed.
If you do go, I recommend asking for Freddie as your caddie. He's intelligent, funny. He will help if you ask. Or stand back if you want to call your own shots. And he's always there with your putter, and a good read, when you need it. (He didn't miss a read.) Tell him Sammy Sosa set you. LOL. Enjoy.

Jan. 10 have played the course in the rain. Since the place still has no directions, one must, a caddy for $ 25 - to pay more for green fees. It's harmless going on, but the second Tee has it all-great over a ravine about 200 meters and with a headwind-but-no chance. Each hole is well laid out with lots of bunkers, the last with water. Friends from Berlin have this place the next day in the sun again-played your words: SUPER The place is great u maintained, green the greens are very large.
The golf course is not yet surrounded with many houses built but it is hard. The club house is ok, spaghetti carbonara was good and plenty (but expensive), the staff is friendly but has a difficulty to understand in english also when you log in Pro Shop
