Golf For Free at the Los Mangos Course
Greens fees and transport to/from the 9 hole executive course at Los Mangos are included with your rental. This is a community golf course that can be fun for you to enjoy with familiy and friends, but not one that will satisfy the serious golfer. Golfers play among tropical fruit trees. Los Mangos, which opened in 1986 and was remodeled in 2001, is a nine-hole golf course measuring 3,300 yards. Par is 35. This is a fine course if you just want to play an easy game and practice hitting the ball. There are nice amenities at the course so that you can enjoy lunch, etc. There is also a spa next to the course. If you are a serious golfer and want a more luxurious experience, I recommend trying one of the other courses in the area. The resort can arrange transportation but the costs for greens fees and transport will be at your expense.
The course is flat conditioned, with exceptional greens, and surrounds the Playa Dorada Resort Complex in Puerto Plata, on the North coast of the Dominican Republic.
This course offers you 18 holes of challenging, 72 par golf in the lush Caribbean tropical surrounding the Dominican Republic offers, surrounded by the amenities and comfort of a dozen-plus beach resorts, casinos, beaches, restaurants… Playa Dorada resorts is 15 minutes distance from the International Airport of Puerto Plata (POP)
Playa Grande – ‘The Pebble Beach of the Caribbean’
Choose Playa Grande if you are a serious golfer. Many consider the Playa Grande Golf Course to be the best in the Dominican Republic. Golfers for years have called it the Pebble Beach of the Caribbean.
Playa Grande also has one of the most spectacular beaches in the Dominican Republic. Playa Grande beach itself is 1,600 meters of soft, white sand. But the high surf is not child-friendly. Playa Grande is a beach for trained swimmers. It can be lots of fun for teenagers and adults, though. It is gorgeous for romantic walks on the beach, at any time of the day. It is a good choice for a rest and relaxation vacation, for a honeymoon, even for a spring break vacation. For outings with young children, there are many alternative beaches in the area, such as Diamante and Caleton with shallow, pool-like waters.
You are about an hour east of Cofresí Beach where the Lifestyle Holidays Resort is located.
