The thoughtful design and unique location make this an experience to put on any golf couple’s itinerary!

Playa Grande

Playa Grande is one of the last golf courses designed by Robert Trent Jones Sr., making it another hot spot for golf couples. The course was renovated by his son renovated less than five years ago.

Teeth of the Dog

While the name sounds fierce, it’s actually an inviting course for sport-minded couples in the Caribbean. Located in La Romana, the course is an incredible seaside experience. Plus, many golfers have not heard of it, making it a private spot for lovers who want to sneak a kiss between holes. Ready for more romance?

Punta Espada

Golf lovers instantly recognize the name Jack Nicklaus, the pro who designed Punta Espada. The par 72 course is not for the faint of heart.
