Dominican Republic

If golf and beach is your number # 1 priority on your next holiday, then look no further , the Dominican Republic offers you 26 golf courses.

More of its holes sit directly on the ocean, though, a major reason the Dominican Republic just might be the best golf destination in the Caribbean.

The paradox of the Caribbean is sadly alive and well in the Dominican Republic, which shares the island of Hispaniola with Haiti. Spectacular beachfront resorts and seaside courses provide a stark contrast to the poverty elsewhere on the island. Pete Dye's iconic Teeth of the Dog course at the luxurious Casa de Campo resort celebrated its 40th anniversary in 2011. Tom Fazio, Jack Nicklaus, Nick Price and others have built upon that foundation.
