    My FI & several other male wedding guests are interested in playing golf while we're in Punta Cana. I've received info from the golf reservation center & the green fees are astronomical! Does anyone know if there are any 'discount' green fees in Punta Cana or if you can book directly with the pro shops at each course. I promised my FI I'd research this a little bit before he gave up on the idea entirely. He's not comfy asking people to pay $200+ for a round of golf....

        I was shocked myself! That's per person. These rates came from Golf Reservation Center. Their site is: Golf Reservation Center | Book Golf in Dominican Republic. The price includes transportation to/from the resorts, green fees, cart fees & range balls but it still seems unusually high to me. I'm not even sure how much additional it costs to rent clubs.

          Sorry that just seemed like a lot of $$ not that I would know since I've never golfed. I was going to recommend the Cocotal Golf Course just bc it's all I know from our resort but I noticed it was on the website you posted. Did you try posting on the Excellence thread? Maybe some other brides have had a similar question...Good Luck!!

            Thanks Tracy!

            I've managed to find another site listing the green fees @ Cocotal as $85USD. I need to do more research on this. Surely people have played down there & not broken the bank doing it! LOL

              You should ask your resort. I believe some provide free shuttle service, too.

                When we went to Punta Cana for our wedding. by husband wanted to play golf with his buddies as well. He researched like mad, and the cheapest he found was the White Sands and it was 150. The thing with the golf courses there is that you have to pay the green fee, but you also MUST rent a cart as well.

                In the end, they decided not to, and He was happy they didn't when we drove to the White Sands Golf Course and it was really shabby (thus how much cheaper it was than the other courses). My advice would be to either shell out the extra cash to go to a nice place, or not do it at all. Punta Cana has some of the most beautiful courses in the world, but they are really pricy.
