Punta Espada is the first of three Jack Nicklaus Signature golf courses to be developed at Cap Cana. Opened in November 2006 it is already listed among the worlds finest, with the renowned GolfWeek publication ranking it as the "#1 Best Golf Course in the Caribbean and Mexico" and Golf Digest as the #76 in the World. Eight holes play along and over the sea. From all points of Punta Espada, golfers are blessed with extraordinary views of the Caribbean, where the sea contrasts against the emerald fairways and the perfect greens.
Challenging golf holes and beauty are entwined in this outstanding par 72 course, which hosted the PGA Tour's Champions Tour between 2008 - 2010 with The Cap Cana Championship. Fred Couples was the tournament's last winner after posting a record-setting round of 62 (-10) to beat Corey Pavin by one shot.
