Very nice place

The fairways perfectly maintained, the greens in excellent condition, like arrows but true. The staff is very friendly and helpful, as many other club can learn a lot from. We stayed at the Grand Bahia Ambar Hotel just around the corner, the green fee incl Cart, DR balls, drinks and pick up from the lobby and back for USD 75, -. Is almost a bargain, the price for tee times from 14 o'clock applies, but which provides easy one, even if it runs out a 4p Flight, but rarely happens. Overall, highly recommended, whosoever sporty like the back tees are really not bad...

The end of the golf season 2014

We ended yesterday, the Golf 2014 season. On the penultimate day of the year, we treated ourselves to a round at the Punta Blanca Golf Course. The normally costs $ 135.- pp And he would - after we've played it - certainly not worth it.
As we left our "cutlery" at home (given the projected green fee prices in advance) and also on rental clubs (club hire) are dependent, then come again 40 - 50, - $ top, balls (Lakeballs) cost 16, - $ 10 for breakfast - for a normal round of golf come so therefore fix almost 400 - $ together.
From 14 clock there is a whole lot cheaper, probably because the heat is then used really. A player that we meet at the front desk, but were told that it was not much cooler in the morning from 8 clock and it has the disadvantage that it is getting hotter, while one is a little tired myself, so to play in the heat inside, Since it was getting better play from 14 clock when slow then decreases the temperature. However, one must have finished his rounds to 5:45 pm (closes the place), but it is already getting dark this time of year). Green fees and clubs, there are over 14 clock together for 100, - $. Almost a bargain so. And we have allowed ourselves yesterday. Since we had quite a lot of cash, I thought that we were so get rid of a couple of dollars, but the reception turned out that only flawless certificates are accepted as soon as a tape or contamination of the bill is available, see this as a means of payment not more. We had behind us in the (short) snake an American who helps out me us his credit card, for which we give him the bills. Thus we come to clubs, and for an Ecard said $ 16 and to 10 balls. Here we go.
The place is located fairly unspectacular, only a few par 3 tracks are beautiful, the water comes only 3 holes into play a whole, it is also suitable for beginners. I get along well with the iron, only 3 wood hisses always to the left away no matter what I do. So let stick (after 3 turnovers also I notice that at last). We are quite fix on the go, the first 9 we have done after 1.5 h, as we come on the (alone playing) Ami from earlier contrary - he has finished his turn. He had incidentally booked a package that comes but not much cheaper because the card rent 50 - $ amounts, and without Card is not (between track 10 and 11 is a long way to go to the other side of the area, return it and again after 16). From the 10 we have a 3 seater flight ahead of us, but then the brakes. So we need for the second 9 but then 2 hours. Other players we do not see the way.
The place itself is in good Condition, the greens quite quickly. Between some tracks but there is "waste areas" filled with gravel and sand that must then still be avoided. Likewise, some cars are kept pretty closely, a straight drive off the tee is a must here.
However, my personal conclusion would be that there are much nicer places, the views are spectacular and the sea is far away (and see by any train). So on a second round, we do not. The staff is - as also in the hotel - very friendly and usually in a good mood when we ask for a tour in advance (we thought rather the clubhouse) we received yesterday a guided tour card on the first 7 tracks.
The Dominican Republic is a luxury golf destination, and we probably played only the "cheapest" place. So it is not entirely fair to want to take stock of the whole country, but I dare:
For a pure golf holiday I would recommend this aim - for cost reasons alone - not recommended. It may well be that this is the "Mallorca" for the US Americans, but for Europeans there are certainly more and better winter destinations for golf.
PS: Last but not least, thanks to this experience, we appreciate once again our club Fleesensee very much and look forward to the 2015 season there!

Currently too expensive

Currently, the place in a good condition. But it is not really bad also. The price of 190, - EUR (incl. shuttle from the hotel, balls on the range, drinks and a sandwich in the club) but it is justified in any way. Since then you have come. We have about the hotel, a discount of 95 - get USD. Then the price is right.

Almost all fairways have large bald spots. Also you can see many unsightly stains. After the round, it was explained to demand that the fairways were reseeded and you still have some problems with it. Always great to learn something behind. Similarly, the new sand bunkers could tolerate, and the paths between the same holes partially true moguls. Some holes have to drive to the next tee several minutes.
The greens are nice and big and very neatly maintained.
The fairways are so wide that you really similar no shot to a beat.
All in all, a "simple" resort course for players of all levels. Ambitious players should take the black tees.

Super and recommended

Great Place with excellent price / performance ratio.
There is a flat rate, if you play more than once.
The green fee we had as Bahia Principe guests included the following: Cart, drinks, sandwich on the round, lunch after 9 or 18 holes.
Place in excellent condition. Really all highly recommended.
