Jack Nicklaus was never too selfish to take everything all to himself. He made sure nature has its handiwork unconcealed on his work at the Cana Bay Palace Golf Club. In fact, the natural splendor of this part of Punta Cana in the Dominican Republic is the highlight of the work he did on this premiere golf vacation destination – right at the forefront for everyone to see and fall in love with.
The Cana Bay Palace Golf Club is located along the beautiful, golden sanded shores of the Macao Beach, and is accessible from the airport in Punta Cana. The course winds around bare sand and rock, an unmatched view of the beach, stunning set of expansive lakes, and rolling fairways. And Nicklaus being Nicklaus, his design never did stop on the visually appetizing. After all, what’s a golf vacation worth if it couldn’t give a great round of golf? This is where the challenge comes in. Nicklaus has filled this course with a combination of natural and sandy waste areas and bunkers that make the approaches a little tougher. And combined with the aforementioned visual appetizers, they give a round or two here some much appreciated attitude.
And since nature is at the front seat of this golf trip spectacle, it is only natural to see the best of the Caribbean’s native tropical vegetation. They stand in a most perfect contrast to the paspalum turf carpeting the course. From the longest tees, the Cana Bay Palace Golf Club measures a good 7,253 yards, par 72. it has four sets of tees and it opened in 2009.
