PASSION IS REBORN AT Guavaberry Golf & Country Club
By Carlo Blanchard, Golf Analyst for RDS and Golf Pro at Club de golf Le Portage
The Guavaberry Golf & Country Club in Juan Dolio, designed by renowned golfer and architect Gary Player, opened in the late 90s. The incredible design of this course remains one of its best qualities—a fact made even more obvious since the course was taken over by new Spanish owners and playing conditions have returned to being optimal. Guavaberry’s course features a wonderful combination of holes that will suit golfers of every calibre. In addition to its amazing clubhouse, Guavaberry also includes a pool, a decent driving range and a putting green.
Open since December 2015, the Emotions Hotel by HOLDELPA, located a mere 15 minutes from the club, is a great choice when staying in Juan Dolio. This particular hotel is simply charming and has a cozy, intimate atmosphere that you won’t find in bigger resorts. Everything you need is just steps away, including restaurants and the beach. You simply can’t find a better value.
Juan Dolio is located midway between La Romana and Santo Domingo, making the Old Town of Santo Domingo a great option for an easy and enjoyable day trip if the mood should strike you.
