Playa Grande Golf Course

Reopening for the 2017 Holiday season

Wide fairways, meticulously contoured greens and Rees Jones’ signature coastal-style bunkers accent the gently rolling landscape. Four par-three holes are played alongside the ocean, as are the last five holes of the back nine. Each side has a one-risk/reward par-five on the water. Each hole blends seamlessly into the natural surroundings, giving a unique feeling of isolation from one to the next.

  • Par-72
  • Six sets of tees
  • 10 holes directly on the ocean
  • Ocean views from every hole
  • +/- 4hrs for 18 holes
  • Spread over 370 acres of pristine coastline
  • State of the art golf carts with caddies
  • Designed by Robert Trent Jones Sr. and refreshed by his son, Rees Jones

THE 18 HOLES OF PLAYA GRANDE GOLF COURSE

Each a carefully curated challenge in pristine natural surrounds
  • Par 4 | 430 Yards

    HOLE #1

    The opening hole is a fitting introduction to Playa Grande.  From the tee box, players will have views of the entire first hole, along with a number of the surrounding holes, each framed with expansive vistas of the ocean.

  • Par 4 | 422 Yards

    HOLE #2

    This dogleg right hole has strategically placed fairway bunkers on the left side, while the right side is protected by a grove of palm trees. A well-struck tee-shot will find a speed slot in the fairway, propelling the ball forward by another 15-25 

  • Par 3 | 245 Yards

    HOLE #3

    The third hole is the longest of the par-threes and features water along the entire right side.  Players must be careful with club selection due to the wind direction, which varies from left to right or straight downwind.

  • Par 5 | 585 Yards

    HOLE #4

    The hole runs along the high rocky cliff to a green that is located out on a point surrounded by the ocean. A well-struck ball will avoid the ocean on the right and the fairway bunkers on the left, and will determine the player’s chance to reach the green in two

  • Par 4 | 415 yards

    HOLE #5

    A good tee-shot avoids the fairway bunkers and a swale into the right rough. The wide green is protected by bunkers on both sides. The approach to the green features a ramp on the right and a slope on the left. 

  • Par 5 | 556 Yards

    HOLE #6

    Players will need to hit three solid shots in order to find a birdie or make an easy par. Playing up the right side of the fairway will give a comfortable third shot to an elevated green.

  • Par 3 | 190 Yards

    HOLE #7

    With tees located out on a point and a green which sits against the cliff’s edge, players may need to select more club because the hole typically plays into a prevailing wind. A good shot will avoid the water and bunkers that guard the green.

  • Par 4 | 378 Yards

    HOLE #8

    The shortest par-four on the front nine. The hole typically plays into a right-to-left wind against the player. A tee-shot that challenges the ocean will reward the player with the best angle to a green.

  • Par 4 | 450 yards

    HOLE #9

    The tee-shot is pure strategy, and players will need to pick the correct line based on how much he or she can carry the ball into a prevailing wind.A good approach shot will help avoid the cross bunker short right of the green.

  • Par 4 | 430 Yards

    HOLE #10

    Playing into the prevailing wind, the green is protected by a greenside bunker to the right and a slope on the left. Any shot that misses to the left will face an interesting recovery from a fairway chipping area to a large green surface.

  • Par 4 | 352 Yards

    HOLE #11

    Players must choose a path on the tee-shot using the flag’s location. If the pin is on the right, the best angle of attack is a shot from the elevated right side of the fairway. If the pin is on the left, the best angle is from the lower left section.

  • Par 4 | 400 Yards

    HOLE #12

    Players need to hit a drive down the right side of the fairway because the fairway slopes from right-to-left. A good drive will leave a medium to short iron to a wide, shallow green.

  • Par 4 | 475 Yards

    HOLE #13

    A long iron to a fairway wood will be required on the second shot, but players can take advantage of the fairway ramp on the right to gain access to the green and avoid the greenside cluster of bunkers on the left.

  • Par 5 | 505 Yards

    HOLE #14

    A cluster of bunkers protects the inside of the dogleg on the tee-shot, and trees guard the left side of the fairway. The smart play is a second shot short of the green and left of the right greenside bunkers. 

  • Par 3 | 184 Yards

    HOLE #15

    The green is located on a point, guarded by ocean on the back and right sides. The left side is also protected by a large open cave which connects to the ocean and, depending on the tide, features massive waves crashing into it.

  • Par 4 | 470 Yards

    HOLE #16

    This challenging dogleg right plays along and over the ocean to a green, which is tucked against the edge of the cliffs. The downhill downwind tee-shot needs to be precise to avoid the water on the right and a swale on the left.

  • Par 3 | 187 Yards

    HOLE #17

    The green is located on a point that sits high above the ocean and subsequently, the hole tends to play into a right-to-left wind. A knock-down shot that takes advantage of the open approach to the green may be the proper shot to play.

  • Par 5 | 585 Yards

    HOLE #18

    The final hole is a risk/reward par-five, which requires a player to choose between a safe three-shot route around the ocean or a riskier shot from one cliff to another and over a cove of water.
