Golf

The lush fairways and pulse-quickening greens of Punta Espada Golf Club lie at the heart of Cap Cana resort, an oasis of sun-splashed luxury perched on the Dominican Republic's northeastern coast.

This playable, impeccably conditioned course features generous landing areas and slick, subtle putts. It was designed by Jack Nicklaus and rewards the occasional go-for-broke gamble shot as much as it does sensible shots.

The ocean winds and crashing surf may distract you, particularly on holes like the daunting par 3 12th - one of eight holes that skirt the ocean. But the awesome beauty of the scenery makes it well worth the few extra balls.

The Golden Bear Lodge and Spa overlooks the newly built, parkland-style Las Iguanas course, another Nicklaus design. The layout boasts multiple tee boxes and an attentive, family-friendly design that remains a good challenge for even the experienced player.

The Champions Tour hosts the Cap Cana Championship here every March, when the course is stretched to its maximum length, nearly 7,400 yards.
