Golf Introduction

In Puerto Rico the game of golf dates back to the 1930's, when the first course was constructed on plantation ground to entertain elite business associates. Appeal for the sport grow steadily, and courses began to appear throughout the Island to compliment vacation resorts, and to serve as a recreational pastime at two U.S. military bases.

 

Today Puerto Rico has become the golf mecca of the Caribbean. Throughout our island you'll find 18 complete golf courses, including four 9-hole layouts and fourteen 18-hole layouts. Sixteen of these golf courses are open to the public, and, 10 have some restrictions. Two courses, the Bamboo Creek Golf Course at Roosevelt Roads Naval Base and the Fort Buchanan Golf Club in Guaynabo, are restricted to military personnel and their guests.

Several factors make Puerto Rico the perfect place for golf. For one, there's great weather here year-round. Cool trade winds make for a refreshing golf experience, and plenty of rain keeps the grass green and healthy.  The characteristics of the land also enhances the beauty of the game.  The diverse terrain affords an opportunity for designers to contour acres of rolling meadows along side oceans, rivers and mountainous rain-forests. The outlying scenery becomes the backdrops that inescapably charms any golfer. Most of these courses were designed by some of the most famous names in golf, including Arthur Hills, Greg Norman, Jack Nicklaus, Rees Jones,  and Robert Trent Jones, Sr., & son. Included in this lot is our very own golf expert Chi Chi Rodriguez. In addition, many of our golf courses are part of prominent resort hotels, that pamper their golf enthusiast guests beyond expectations.
