Your friends and business associates have talked for years about taking an exotic golf trip together. Wait, no longer. Puntacana Resort on the Dominic Republic’s famed southeast coast has a to-die-for triple play featuring three of golf’s greatest names in course design.
Armin Kaestner, Puntacana Resort’s Golf Group Coordinator, has designed the mother of all golf luxury packages. Vacationers staying at the Westin Puntacana or the exclusive Tortuga Bay Hotel can play at the P.B. Dye-designed La Cana Golf Course, the Tom Fazio-designed Corales Golf Course, and the Jack Nicklaus-designed Punta Espada golf course. Got your attention?
If this ocean golf trifecta isn’t enough, consider this extra perk that Kaestner dangles for his clients. Guests staying at the above-mentioned hotels can also request one of the best international air add-ons in recent memory. Puntacana Resort guests can snare a VIP component that translates into being whisked through airport security and then shuttled by private car to their accommodations. Got your attention now?
Great Expectations for Group Golf in the DR
Kaestner’s Puntacana Resort Group Golf Team offers six unique packages. Each package can be customized to suit your group’s needs.
One of the most popular packages is called Golf Experience Plus, Tortuga Bay. This deal is for guests staying for five or more nights at Tortuga Bay, one of the Leading Hotels in the World.
Guests can look forward to an Ocean Front Junior Suite, plus daily breakfast, lunch, and dinner. Imagine playing 18 holes of golf at Corales, La Cana, and Punta Espada. It also covers VIP service and transfers from Punta Cana International Airport. Guests also receive 15% off on Six Senses Spa treatments.
Beyond Golf for Your Group
Puntacana Resort aims to please if your group’s interests stretch beyond golf. Outdoor options range from tennis, eco-tours, wreck diving, heli-tours, sunset cruises, horseback riding, water sports, shopping, and monthly events.
Kaestner can also arrange for Chef Santiago Salamanca or Chef Carlos Robles to prepare a special cooking event, especially for your group. These culinary happenings can take place at your villa, or if you prefer, at one of the scenic oceanside restaurants located on the property. There is no extra charge for the amazing views to be had at the Grill Restaurant at La Cana Golf Course, Playa Blanca Restaurant at the Westin, or Tortuga Bay’s intimate Bamboo Restaurant.
As for cocktails, Bartender Carlos Benoit is the star of the Westin Puntacana’s Don Queco Cigar Bar. Carlos will gladly prepare special cocktails for your group. Benoit’s cocktails feature local ingredients, and he can also pair Dominican rum with any one of the resort’s selections of native cigars.
Ga Ga Spa
One of Tortuga Bay’s most popular amenities is the Six Senses Spa located at the La Cana Golf & Beach Club. This tranquil oasis is 1,800-square feet, and treatments include massage, body treatments, hot stone therapies, and facials.
After 18 holes of golf, a spa treatment is a soothing way to decompress. There is also the option of enjoying your massage in the comfort of your private villa.
Group Golf Perfect Getaway Day
After you’ve experienced an amazing trio of Punta Cana golf courses, there is a perfect way to cap your stay. Kaestner has discovered a getaway lunch that provides the ultimate memory for your Punta Cana group golf vacation.
“When a newcomer wishes to see what our property is all about, we always finish our tour at the La Cana Golf Course’s Grill Restaurant. This al fresco restaurant looks out at the pool, the 18th hole, and our amazing Caribbean Sea. This setting is so beautiful and so relaxing. To finish up here with a bite to eat and a cocktail, it’s just a great way to see and feel what our resort is all about,” Kaestner said.
