Dorado Beach - Plantation Pineapple
Fine Golf in PR.
My wife and I played this course on a Saturday at 1:00. We finished within 4 hours and did not feel rushed. The course was in good shape, and staff was very friendly. The Pineapple course is considered harder than the Sugar, but if you can avoid the traps your round should be fine as there was standing water in a couple. Sand traps were very hard which cost me 6 strokes. Layout is great including a par 3 on the ocean. About a 35 min. drive from Condado Beach. Will be back. Found great rate on Golfnow.

Purchases on Course
The course does not accept Discover nor do they accept cash for on the course cart attendant. Wrote down account number of your credit card and not ever receiving a receipt. Very shady and very skeptical of this practice. Otherwise GREAT course and experience

A great day of Golf!
This course was amazing! You have your choice of 3 courses. I played the sugarcane course which was in excellent condition even after a day of heavy rain. Played with good folks and to make it even better the drink cart was on top of their game- every other hole they were there to serve a nice cold drink. I will certainly recommend for anyone visiting PR and looking for a luxury day of golf to visit Dorado club. It's worth every dollar.

Decent course, but fees can have you scratching your head
Overall, the course was pretty decent. I went on a twilight rate ($60), and didn't see many other golfers (less than 5) on the course. It also rained earlier in the day and as I finished the front 9. The staff was nice enough, but I was disappointed in the cost they charged for my wife to ride with me ($28). I know that sometimes a fee is associated for a rider, but at the same time she didn't even swing a golf club. Seeing that I was on vacation, I also rented clubs - they were a pretty nice set. What wasn't nice was the $45 dollar club rental and the $30 dollar cost for golf balls that staff said were "a part of the rental club deal". It cost more to rent clubs than to play the course. To go even further, they give you two sleeves (yes, six balls) for that $30 dollar cost. That is silly in my book. Not saying its a no go course, but they definitely get two thumbs down from me.

Not great course for 150 bucks. Greens were dried out and needed to be cut, also greens very small. Strange layout and not well marked. Shouldn't loose many balls cuz not a lot of trouble out there. Fairways are somewhat narrow for a resort course. Having said all that the view on number 12 is phenomenal! I could have just sat on the green and looked out at the water all day. Never played pebble beach but seen it on tv and that's what the view brought to mind.

Played the Sugarcane course, not Pineapple, the starter recommendation because the greens had been aerated. Very nice resort, surrounded by houses, trees, and water. Highlight was meeting Chi Chi Rodriquez and getting a picture with him. Lots of sand, very fluffy, tough to get out of for someone from the Midwest.

good warm up course
Course is not worth paying full price for but i got it for $100 so it was worth it. next time i would do twilight and pay only $60 and it would definitely be a great value. course is not extremely long but with the trade winds it does make a lot of the holes play much longer than the yardage. GPS app on my phone made it much easier than looking for yardage markers but GPS in carts would be a nice upgrade. course could use a little TLC but overall was a fun experience. Club house was Awesome and so was staff.
