Huge demand for property in the Dominican Republic

MRI Overseas Property sees a huge rise in demand for the Dominican Republic

MRI Overseas Property has been offering fantastic properties to its clients in the Dominican Republic for some years now, but even we were pleasantly surprised at the level of enquiries over the last month.

There was huge demand via our web site, with enquiries for The Dominican outweighing any others and our telephones were ringing off the hooks with calls asking for more information.

Is it the year-round fantastic weather, the thought of the Caribbean sea and beaches or something else?

It may well be the golfing facilities which are some of the finest anywhere in the world.

Read on for some details on what you can expect. And if this taste of the delights of the Dominican Republic has whet your appetites, contact us straight away to talk about viewing properties there!

A favourite golfing destination of former US Presidents Bill Clinton and George H. Bush, the Dominican Republic has become one of the hottest spots to tee-off in the Caribbean, if not the world. Here golfers will find 19 courses with ocean-front fairways and dog-leg lefts around swaying coconut palms. They’ll also find courses designed by legends such as Pete Dye, P.B. Dye, Jack Nicklaus, Arnold Palmer, Robert Trent Jones, Gary Player, Tom Fazio and Nick Faldo.

The next few years are especially important for DR golf as five new courses are scheduled to open throughout 2008 and 2009. But visitors to the Dominican Republic needn’t worry about packing golf clubs or even knowing how to golf, for that matter. Each course offers affordable club rentals and internationally recognized golf pros for lessons. Regardless of handicap, the courses of the Dominican Republic promise a challenging and unique experience.

Within 90 minutes drive of Punta Cana/Bavaro, there are 13 golf courses. Here are our personal favourites:

Dye Fore – The newest course and the third by Pete Dye to open at the luxurious Casa de Campo resort in La Romana is unique, with a 300-foot deep river gorge, Mediterranean village, mountains and the Caribbean Sea as backdrops. The course itself is expansive, measuring a long 7,770 feet with fairways 200-feet wide. Although visually intimidating, the course is very playable and golfers have been raving about the new addition.

Teeth of the Dog – Consistently ranked by golf experts as one of the top 50 courses in the world, Teeth of the Dog is located at Casa de Campo resort in La Romana. The course features several signature Dye formations along with seven oceanfront holes, four on the front nine and three on the back, and is considered extra challenging due to the tricky sea breezes. The course opened in 1971 and recently had its teeth sharpened and lengthened. It re-opened in November of 2005.

Punta Cana Resort & Club’s La Cana Golf Course
Located at Punta Cana Resort & Club, every hole within this P.B. Dye-designed championship course captures the scenery of the Caribbean with 14 ocean-view and four ocean-front holes. In fact, the 18th hole has been said to resemble the infamous 18th hole at Pebble Beach. And, according to Dye, the 7th hole is golfer’s purgatory!

Punta Blanca – The new five-star Majestic Colonial Punta Cana Beach Resort features a casino, spa and an 18-hole golf course designed by Nick Price. Punta Blanca celebrated its grand opening May of 2007 with Nick Price inaugurating the course.

Cocotal Golf and Country Club – The 18-hole course, designed by six-time Spanish champion Jose Pepe Gancedo, uses the natural terrain of an old coconut plantation and includes serene lakes and palm trees in its landscape. In 2002, an additional nine-hole course opened.

Punta Espada Golf Course – The initial golf course to open at luxurious Cap Cana is Punta Espada, the first Jack Nicklaus Signature Course in the Dominican Republic. World renowned golf course management team Troon Golf staffs the 7,382 yard-long 18-hole course. The architecture utilized the area’s bluffs, beach, waterways and jungle foliage with eight of the holes directly on the ocean.

Roco Ki Golf Club – One of the newest projects announced for the Macao Beach area is The Faldo Legacy Course at Roco Ki Golf Club. An 18-hole championship course, The Faldo Legacy Course will thrill golfers of every ability with its challenging cliffside and ocean-view holes, tropical mangrove forest and lagoon. Troon Golf will also manage this course.
