Tee Off in Puerto Rico

Golf Puerto Rico

That crisp smack as club hits ball. Turning your head up (after the follow through, of course) to see the ball arc gracefully in the light breeze, juxtaposed against the azure sky on its parabolic journey towards the rolling green. That thrill of the first tee off of the day.

Would it not all be better in the fresh ocean air and on the sun soaked turf of a golf resort on the captivating island of Puerto Rico?

This ever popular Caribbean holiday destination boasts a number of world class golfing resorts set amid stunningly beautiful scenery of forest and sea. The climate is typically hot equatorial, and the average temperature throughout the year varies between 73 degrees and 83 degrees Fahrenheit. If 300 miles of shoreline are not enough, the nearby island of Culebra features what Discovery Channel designated the second best stretch of beach on the planet.

With a golfing vacation your mind; you will be spoiled for choice in Puerto Rico. Arguably the best overall golf destination in the Caribbean, it is dotted with courses, some designed by the foremost golf players of their day in the world. A number of establishments cater particularly to golfing vacationers and their attached courses feature complimentary access and a host of other facilities, including equipment rental.

The ideal location for an adventure golf vacation depends on what golfing experience you prefer and what else you want to do on your trip to Puerto Rico.

The El Conquistador Resort & Las Casitas Village is perfect for the golfer looking to enjoy the scenery as well as his game. Set amidst lush green forests and overlooking a 300-foot vista over the waves, it is a veritable tour of the island’s diverse landscape. The Wyndham Grand Rio Mar is ideally located near the airport for the golfer looking for the quick golfing getaway.

Privately-owned villas at the Palmas del Mar near San Juan surrounded by two courses offer the ultimate in luxurious accommodation and are the unrivaled choice for the premium vacation. For visitors seeking to live up to the performances at the PGA Tour’s Puerto Rican stop, the Gran Melia Golf Resort features two 18-hole courses to test their mettle. They are considered the premium golfing destination on the island.

After you are done golfing, enjoy a tour of the Bacardi rum factory and, especially, the free samples at the end. Nature lovers have the lush tropical jungles and the million-year old caves. The culture buff has the series of old forts that have stood for centuries to sate his desires. At the end of the day, converge on San Juan for a taste of the vibrant, exotic nightlife.

An additional draw for American golfers is that Puerto Rico is part of the United States territories, which means that Americans do not require visas and passports for entry.
