La Cana Golf Course in Punta Cana has been called a difficult course — though it's understandably tough to focus when 14 holes out of 27 have views of the Caribbean Sea. Regarded as one of the Dominican Republic's most exclusive and scenic courses, La Cana has sand dunes, fairways, and tees that are close enough to the turquoise water that you would think you were golfing at the beach.
When you first step up to the manicured tee box and take a look down the fairway, it's nearly impossible to tee off your ball without stopping to snap a photo.
The golf course is located about 10 minutes by car from the Punta Cana Airport and 30 minutes from Bávaro Beach. Caddies and club rentals are available, and visitors will also find a putting green, a driving range, and a bar and restaurant on site.
