In 1955, renowned golf architect Robert Trent Jones, Sr. was called on by Laurence S. Rockefeller to create the finest golf resort in Puerto Rico and the Caribbean, Dorado Beach Resort & Club. Originally home to four exceptional layouts, these famed courses have played host to PGA TOUR tournaments, celebrities, world leaders and iconic players.
To reserve a tee time,
The highlight of the Dorado Beach East Course is its renowned 4th hole. The 4th hole was ranked by Jack Nicklaus as one of the top ten golf holes in the world and promises an unforgettable scene at this Caribbean golf resort. At 525 yards from the championship tee (500 for non-pros), it’s a double dogleg that affords the strong player a reachable green in two shots - if he or she can cross two ponds to get there. Amateurs may take the more cautious path of playing around the lake in a "Z" pattern and pitching to the green with their third shot.
A $2 million dollar upgrade of the East Course was completed in 1999. Fairways and greens were contoured back to their original designs and the bunkers rebuilt; drainage and irrigation systems and new cart paths were installed.
Major landscaping of the course added exotic flowering trees and plants to its already plentiful palms and fruit trees.
The Dorado Beach Plantation Sugarcane Course is the more challenging of the two Plantation courses at this Caribbean golf resort, although it boasts larger fairways and greens. The course features more forced carries and deeper bunkers that can penalize you for an errant shot.
The back nine is surrounded by newly created rivers and lakes and offers a much different look, never seen at the old Cerromar and Dorado Courses, making this a hidden gem amongst Puerto Rico golf courses. Players have an opportunity for birdies early in the round, but par is a great score on most every hole on the back nine. The new 50,000 square foot, $5 million clubhouse awaits golfers after their round.
Whether it be for a cold beverage with your foursome, a magnificent meal cooked to order, or simply to relax on our deck that provides great views of the golf course.
The Plantation Pineapple Course was designed to be the more friendly course for golfers at this Caribbean golf resort. The course has fewer forced carries, the bunkers are not as deep and the greens are slightly larger.
The back nine of The Plantation Pineapple Course consists of four holes with an ocean view, followed by a tough five-hole stretch culminating with a fantastic par four, 18th hole, that finishes up on a green that is just below the clubhouse terrace.
We promise that you’ll enjoy the majestic beauty on one of Puerto Rico’s finest golf courses.
