Iberostar Grand Bavaro Punta Cana Dominican Republic Hole 8

Regardless of which of the 5 All-inclusive, 5 Star, Iberostar properties in Punta Cana you decide to stay at you will have the opportunity to access the recently crowned “Best Golf Course” in the Dominican Republic by World Golf Awards – The P.B. designed Iberostar Bavaro Golf Club.

You will find a fine collection of P. B. Dye spectacular designs throughout the Dominican Republic. With the Bavaro Course, Dye turned a flat uninviting terrain into a magnificent work of art, to be admired by who set foot on its fairways and greens.
This magnificent course boasts a length of 6,718 yards, a rating of 71.8, and a 122 slope. Architect P.B. Dye oversaw the transformation of a naturally flat landscape into sculpted terrain featuring swales, mounding, 105 white silica sand bunkers forming eye-catching contrast to the intensely lush green fairways, streams and lakes. Combining the extensive use of existing stone and rock work with some desert like features provided the finishing touches to the course which guides golfers along the coast. Golfers of all handicaps will be able to enjoy both the scenery and the game.

Iberostar’s Bavaro Course
A great resort course!
A welcoming opening hole, a short par 4 with a relatively wide fairway, lets you ease into your round. The 2nd is a somewhat challenging mid length par 3, be longer rather than short to avoid front bunkers. On the 3rd make sure you gaze into the greenside cave like bunkers, just don’t go in.
One of the most memorable holes on the course without a doubt will be the
par 3, 8th. An unusual starfish-shaped island green complex, surrounded by sand, rather than water, from tee to green. This hole will certainly remain etched in the memory bank and the green’s star shape (the hotel chain’s logo) is a reminder, in case you needed one, that you’re playing an Iberostar resort course.

A little more water comes into play on the back nine and you will find that out right off the bat with water all down the right side of 10. Water and bunkers also greet you on the longest par 3 on the course – 11th. The 14th, number one handicap hole, long s-shaped par 4 runs up to an elevated green, beware water left! Well deserving of the #1 status.
Three very enjoyable closing holes, short par 3, 16th is all carry over water. The 17th is a solid 3 shot, slightly uphill par 5, not too much trouble so a good chance for a closing birdie. A solid closing hole closing hole with fairway sloping left to right, plenty of fairway on the right but be aware of water there as well.
