Golf in the Dominican Republic
The Dominican Republic has consistently been honored as the top golf destination in the Caribbean. Nine of the country’s golf courses have been included in Golfweek Magazine’s list of the top 50 courses in the Caribbean and Latin America, and The Dominican Republic was named the “Golf Destination of the Year in the Caribbean and Latin America” by the International Association of Golf Tour Operators (IAGTO) several times throughout the past years.
It is easy to see why, with dozens of world-class designer golf courses surrounded by natural beauty, magnificent coastlines and lush green fairways. Conveniently located to Canada, the United States and much of Europe, the Dominican Republic is an attractive destination for golf.
