About
Welcome to the fabulous Iberostate Bávaro Golf & Club, created by leading designer P. B. Dye. This magnificent course boasts a length of 6,897 yards, a rating of 73, and a 126 slope. The 105 white silica sand bunkers dotted throughout the course form an eye-catching contrast with the intensely green Supreme Paspalum grass, perfect for this tropical region. Together with the lakes, streams, and even some desert-like features, it creates a combination of colors that is impossible to be forgotten. Simply put, an irresistible temptation for both Pro and Amateur guests staying either at our fine Iberostar properties or at any other resort nearby.

Very friendly and accommodating staff. We have golfed here many times with different treatment by staff but this time I feel they have their best crew. This made our day very enjoyable, can’t wait to go back in February 2022!

Great Value, Good Course
Jan. 2021
Very reasonably priced during the twilight rate, this includes round trip transportation from your hotel , greens fees, and cart, as well as unlimited drinks and snacks from the beverage cart (thank you, Santos!). The course is very forgiving and lots of fun. Since I was scheduled to play three times, they even stored my clubs there so I didn't have to schlep them back and forth each time.

Bravo Iberostar
Myself and a friend visited the golf course on what looked like a cloudy day.

It did rain which was actually quite nice as it was very hot.

We opted for the twilight golf and teed of at 1:20.

We were picked up at the hotel 30 minutes before our start time and returned when we were ready.

We paid $169 for the round which included premium clubs. The clubs were average and you could tell they were well abused. Worn grips.

We were given a cool box with water and we saw the beverage cart at least 5 times during our round.

The course is very well maintained and there are lots of bunkers.

We received a voucher for a free bar snack after the round. You have to buy a drink to receive this ($3 for a beer).

I would definitely recommend this course, competitive price compared to other courses in Punta Cana.

So as usual the. Course was in great condition. Greens firm but fair and good consistent speed across the 18 holes. Staff is friendly the pace of play is perfect because even though it's in great shape usually very few players.

Excellent time, We will be back
Nov. 2019
The course was great and in excellent condition. Nice challenging round but fair to all levels of golfer. Greens were in excellent shape. While waiting we had putting contests on the tee boxes, that is how nice things were.

Only two complaints.
#1, BRING BOTTLED WATER WITH YOU FROM YOUR ROOM. We played in very humid conditions. Temp were 30C with humidity at 38C (101F). We did not see cart until 7th hole on day 1 and even then, he offered a cup of water. The rest of the week we brought bottled water from the room and refilled on the course. The do not offer bottled water on the course.
#2 It was SLOW. There were 3 groups of 4 ahead of us. It was 5 hours each day to play as a twosome. Their tee times were 10 minutes apart and with the second hole a par three, you're waiting right off the bat. We hardly saw anyone in club house or on other holes except the groups right in front of us. Suggestion to the course, first groups in the morning, alternate them off the 1st and 10th.

Excellent Golf Course - Moderate service
Aug. 2019
I tried this golf course for the first time recently. Let me divide this review into specific areas :

Golf: Excellent. The course is in great condition with excellent fairways, greens. We saw maintenance people in every hole. They are respectful and move away when you are passing by. The greens are quite small and firm. Putting is average speed. The course is not so long and facilitate all type of players. Be sure you can locate your shot carefully!

Service: Santo, the person with the Mobile Beverage Cart, was excellent and very prompt to our needs, including ice and water at all times. He arranged for us to received cold towels also. The caddie master is nice, and the rest of the caddies are just average. Unless you ask for something, they will not proactively help you. This seems to be cultural as I experience the same in the hotel also. The ladies at the pro-shop are not friendly at all. I am not sure how they sell anything. As I was the first tee time of the day, perhaps 6:45 am was too early.

My negative comment is with the reservation department. For some reason, my credit card was not authorized before my arrival at the club. When I was being picked up, the driver handed me the phone to the "reservation department" who demanded immediate payment to authorize the driver to take me back to the course. I offered to pay in person as soon as I arrive at the pro-shop, but I was told it was not possible because "They are not able to do until 8:30 am" and had to be done right away if I wanted to play. I've never seen this kind of situation and every golf course I've been; I pay directly at the pro-shop.

Despite those issues with the service and the "reservations department," the golf course is excellent and is worth to play although expensive compared to others in the region.

Dear golfer, Thank you for your candid comments regarding the course and the maintenance, as we try our very best to maintain it in excellent shape throughout the year. In regards to our staff, we will let Santos from the beverage cart and the caddy master know about your good experience with them, as we will also address the areas of improval you have mentioned with the other staff members. In regards to the reservation, it appears you have reserved with a local golf provider, since we are always able to proceed with credit card charges, as it is no problem to pay either at the pro shop or in advance, during our opening hours of 6:30am to 6:30pm. Please let us know in the future directly if you are experiencing problems with any, as we always try that our guests have an excellent experience from start to finish, and would not want your to have problems with the reservations. We look forward in having you back the next time on our course, so you can verify that we have improved in our overall service! Kind regards, Iberostar Golf

Snack cart
Aug. 2019 • Friends
Don’t let the all you can eat and drink from the snack cart fool you. Only good thing and I mean only good thing is the beer or soft drinks. Nothing else on that cart except small ham or tuna sandwiches. Even those are super small. You get a coupon for a free burger or hot dog at the bar but you have to pay for the drinks. Golf well worth it. I am only rating it low because of snacks

Dear Golfer, Thank you for your comment regarding the beverage cart, as we will continue working to improve our selection of included food in the green fee, as we are happy that you mention about the golf being worth it. We indeed currently have a promotion where you get a coupon from the pro shop, for any meal free when purchasing a drink (even a water) at the 19th hole restaurant, for those that wish to have a bigger meal at the end of the round. Due to our high food & beverage standards we unfortunately cannot not provide these on the course served from the included beverage cart, as we therefore offer the selection of sandwiches you have mentioned, aside from also the water, beer and other included refreshments while playing. We hope you will visit us again in the future, as we will address the selection you are mentioning. Kind regards, Iberostar Golf Team

Great round of Golf @ Iberostate Bavaro Golf Club.
Jul. 2019 • Solo
It has been a year ago since I enjoyed playing golf at the Iberostate Golf resort. The staff was very professional and gracious. They advised me to select their 5 rounds packets so I could save money during my stay. The round of golf was great. The # 8 hole is my favorite with its design as a star. The pink flamingos were my golf fans. The complementary drinks cart driver was great and offered me sodas,beers and sandwiches. At the end of a round of 82. The staff kept my golf bag in storage which is very convenient to guest. To finish my 3 hours round, I enjoyed a complementary hamburger and a beer at the bar. Complementary shuttle was provided to my Iberostar Dominicana. I am looking for my next round of golf in two days.

Nice Golf Course - good condition, great test of golf
May 2019 • Solo
The course is well maintained and has a great variety of testing holes. A couple of the par 3s are particulary good.

The bar service in the clubhouse was great and we saw the drinks cart as much as we wanted. The sandwiches and drinks were surprisingly good.

Clubs were pretty good for rentals.

I don't think it was the fault of Iberostate Golf Club but the agent we booked through but there as a mess up with our booking. We booked with Oceanside Golf and were told the wrong time and the wrong price. We ended up paying over $100 more than we were told by the agent, bringing the total price to around $250. This is too much for this course when you compare it to others on the island. We were quoted an inclusive price (rentals, transport, drinks, sandwiches, rider fee, and balls). When we arrived we had to pay extra for rentals, a higher rider fee and $30 on a bag of balls. This issue was not handled well by the staff. We were also charged a fee for a collared shirt the person who came with me who wasn't playing didn't have a collared shirt. If I had known it was going to be this price I would have played the Nicklaus course instead.

Spend a little more and get a better course, better service and clarity of pricing. Avoid booking through Oceanside Golf.
