About Puerto Plata
Puerto Plata is located on the northern coast of the Caribbean island of Dominican Republic; the province of Puerto Plata is one of the most popular tourist destinations in the Dominican Republic. Blessed with beautiful stretches of pristine beaches, lush green valleys, and cradled by a chain of majestic coastal mountains, Puerto Plata was described as "the fairest land under heaven" by Christopher Columbus in 1492. Over 500 years later, the province of Puerto Plata has continued to captivate visitors from around the world with an intoxicating potion of Latin American culture, incredible natural beauty, and the extraordinary kindness of its people. Visit the city's central park, Parque Luperon, and make a stop at the picturesque church, Iglesia de San Felipe. Several inexpensive cafeterias are nearby, in addition to numerous stores specializing in local crafts. In downtown Puerto Plata you will find the last remaining Victorian gingerbread buildings - elegant 19th century structures which are quickly disappearing due to commercial development.
Another Jones design, Playa Dorada measures just over 6,700 yards from the blue tees, with a respectable USGA slope rating of 134. It’s largely flat but well-conditioned, which means plenty of good, playable lies and fewer awkward uphill, downhill or side-hill slopes than elsewhere on the island. Better players delight in taking on the par 5s, all of which are readily accessible to the longer hitter. Some of the par 4s measure just over 300 yards, so tee it up and let it fly, and see how many eagles you can gather on your scorecard. Please make your reservation through our Concierge Services.
