The highlight of the Dorado Beach East Course is its renowned 4th hole. The 4th hole was ranked by Jack Nicklaus as one of the top ten golf holes in the world and promises an unforgettable scene at this Caribbean golf resort. At 525 yards from the championship tee (500 for non-pros), it’s a double dogleg that affords the strong player a reachable green in two shots – if he or she can cross two ponds to get there. Amateurs may take the more cautious path of playing around the lake in a “Z” pattern and pitching to the green with their third shot.

A $2 million dollar upgrade of the East Course was completed in 1999. Fairways and greens were contoured back to their original designs and the bunkers rebuilt; drainage and irrigation systems and new cart paths were installed. Major landscaping of the course added exotic flowering trees and plants to its already plentiful palms and fruit trees.

Restoration helps Dorado Beach make a stellar comeback The first time I played the Dorado Beach Resort & Club's East Course in 2006 the large Hyatt hotel had just shut down and the everything looked like a ghost town. The course didn't offer much in the way of conditioning or a memorable round. My second trip in 2011 to see the restoration by Robert Trent Jones Jr. helped me better understand why Dorado was the original celebrity Caribbean hangout. Dorado's East Course has a storied past, including hosting eight Senior PGA Tour events. The Robert Trent Jones Sr. course opened in 1958 and expanded to 18 holes in 1966. Chi Chi Rodriguez, who worked here in the early 1960s, beat Doug Saunders in a Shell's Wonderful World of Golf event at Dorado in 1964. The renovation added length to the 7,192-yard course, repositioned bunkers and restored RTJ Sr.'s signature runway tees. The new grass on the greens, ultra-dwarf Champion Bermuda, improved their pace and conditioning. Most important, the clearing of trees and undergrowth created wider fairways and added a critical element that was missing: The ocean is now partially visible from 15 holes. These scenic views won't blow you away, but they will remind you why Dorado once again ranks among the best courses in the Caribbean. February 6, 2014
