Golf has become a central attraction of the Barcelo Bavaro Beach Resort & Convention Center and of the Barcelo Bavaro Palace Hotel Deluxe Hotel, a five-star luxury all-inclusive beachfront facility. The latter is by far the company’s flagship facility not only in the Dominican Republic but in the Caribbean as well.
The group’s commitment to the sport of golf is solid. The Bavaro Beach Resort & Convention Center was the first major resort to be built in Punta Cana, in the country’s eastern region, in the eighties. The hotel’s golf facilities were the first to be built in this important tourism region, considered one of the most important in the entire Caribbean.
The refurbishing of the complex, with an initial investment of US$250 million, includes a complete upgrade of the entire facility. The 18-hole, par 72, golf course was also included in the remodeling process. World-famous American golf designer, P.B. Dye, was given the task of the entire redesign of the course. To date, Dye has built some of the world’s top golf courses.
With his expertise, Dye has turned the hotel’s golf facility into a championship golf course. Even though the facility has been designed for the use of top-rated golfers, Sergio Poo, in charge of the facility, explained that the course is open to all golf lovers, no matter what their level of expertise may be.
The Barceló golf course is situated in the heart of a thick tropical forest. It is different from other nearby courses in that there are no buildings or homes built around the golf course. One of its most important attractions is that it will not be turned into a golf community. The facility is maintained with biodegradable products and uses paspalum grass, a special grass that is watered with salt water.
