Everyone knows that the islands of the Caribbean are amazing if you are a golfer. Whether it is Barbados,
the Dominican Republic or Jamaica, the high bluffs,
wild vegetation and ocean views only enhance your golfing
experience. But you might find the best golf courses in
Puerto Rico - with over fifteen world class options
to choose from, you've got a lot of options for
a tee time, and the island never disappoints.
Sophisticated golfers the world over head to Puerto Rico every year for many reasons: easy access, low prices and promise of a cultural vacation - but, if you really love the game, few things are more important than the courses. And with links designed by legends like Greg Norman, Chi Chi Rodriguez and Gary Player, a Puerto Rico golf vacation is always a good idea.
The Westin Rio Mar boasts not one, but two immaculate golf courses in Puerto Rico - the Ocean Course and the River Course. Not only does the adjacent resort fulfill every expectation of a luxurious Caribbean vacation, the courses are among the most popular - the Ocean Course is considered one of the world's finest. The River Course is located - as you might expect - along a winding river, and was designed by none other than Greg Norman himself. If you can get a room at the Rio Mar, you have taken the first step towards an amazing Puerto Rico golf vacation. Located in San Juan, between receiving unlimited play on these Puerto Rico golf courses and frolicking in the surf of the palm-lined beaches that the resort is spread across, you may never leave the island.
If anything can rival the Rio Mar's spectacular beauty and perfectly laid out courses, it's the Palmas Del Mar. Another resort home to two separate Puerto Rico golf courses, the Palmas Del Mar combines natural beauty with one of the island's most challenging holes. Here you'll find the Flamboyan Course and the Palm Course - the former crosses the Candelero River, and provides one of the trickiest collections of holes you may ever come across, while the latter is a more relaxing way to spend your Puerto Rico golf vacation, stressing tropical atmosphere and island flair over opportunity to show off your finely honed golfing skills.
Another of the top golf courses in Puerto Rico includes the luxurious Hyatt Dorado Club, which offers four separate championship courses dotted with citrus trees and unruly sand traps. Ranked amongst the world's top 50, its Dorado location makes for a great all-around Caribbean vacation. Another of the best Puerto Rico golf courses is the Wyndham El Conquistador in Fajardo. Offering unlimited play for resort guests, this can come in really handy - if the course gets too busy, it closes to the public.
