La Cana Golf & Beach Club

La Cana Golf Club is a favorite of golfers the world over and Golf Magazine described La Cana as "the number one course in the Caribbean" comparing it to Pebble Beach. La Cana Golf Club, like all of The Westin Puntacana Resort and Club, is also incredibly eco-friendly. We were one of the first courses in the Caribbean to use paspalum, a special type of grass seed that can be watered using salt water. During your next round of golf, take in the ocean view from one of the four seaside holes or any of its many holes with spectacular seaside views.
