Why Margaritaville Island Reserve Cap Cana is the Ultimate Golf Getaway

It’s no secret that Cap Cana checks all the boxes for an incredible tropical escape. This exclusive, private community on the Dominican Republic’s stunning eastern shore offers prime access to one of the world’s best beaches — Juanillo Beach. It also brims with opportunities to maximize every moment in the sun, from catamaran cruises to nearby isles and secluded coves, to world-class shopping, entertainment, and restaurants at Cap Cana Marina.

But did you also know that Cap Cana is a top-notch destination for golfing? It’s home to Punta Espada, a Jack Nicklaus signature golf course that’s been ranked #1 in Mexico and the Caribbean by GolfWeek and #35 in the world by Golf Digest.

Players can putt their way across eight holes along and over the sea on this 72-par course, plus more with stunning views of the ocean and surrounding greenery.

Punta Espada also offers a pleasant challenge for even seasoned golfers, featuring emerald fairways, water hazards, and sand traps sure to test your aim and accuracy. Spend a day teeing up here and you’ll see why it’s had the honor of hosting a PGA Champions Tour several times now.

Sound like the perfect course for your next golf getaway? Let Margaritaville Island Reserve Cap Cana serve as the ultimate home base for your escape.

This five-star, all-inclusive luxury resort is just a short drive from the legendary course and beckons with plenty of amenities, world-class restaurants, and ongoing entertainment to thrill golfers and non-golfers alike.

“It’s always golfing season in the Dominican Republic, and there’s no better place to combine your love of the sport and a laidback luxury vacation than at Margaritaville Island Reserve Cap Cana,” said Elizabeth Fettes, Chief Marketing & Sales Officer for Premier Worldwide Marketing, the exclusive marketing and sales provider for Karisma Hotels & Resorts.

What’s more, the resort recently launched a new Golfing in Paradise package designed to elevate every moment of your stay. Guests who opt for the package enjoy double the playing time at Punta Espada.

The package also includes green, cart, and caddie fees, transfers between the resort and the course, and two 50-minute massages at the resort’s acclaimed St. Somewhere Spa.

The best part? Rates start at just $276 per person per night.

“With this package, we’re making it easy for golfers to play a round or two on one of the best courses in the world, while simultaneously enjoying the personalized service and understated luxury that the Island Reserve brand provides,” said Ms. Fettes.

After a great game at Punta Espada, golfers can celebrate back at the resort’s always-lively LandShark Brewery & Grill, where a resident brewmaster crafts refreshing LandShark Lager on-site, and the menu features a mouthwatering array of grilled and smoked classics.

Traveling with non-golfers? They’ll find all kinds of ways to enjoy their time at Margaritaville Island Reserve Cap Cana while you play — including paddleboarding sessions over the tranquil turquoise waves, shoreside lounging beneath the gently swaying palm trees, DJ-driven pool parties, and so much more.
