Nueva Romana Beach promotes sports tourism with golf

The academy has more than 80 practice stations and 8 covered stations, along with specially designed putting and chipping green areas.

Golf tourism has achieved a prominent status in the economy of the Dominican Republic, consolidating itself as one of the fundamental pillars of the tourism industry.

Grupo Piñero’s golf division, Bahía Príncipe Golf actively participates in this ever-expanding industry, supporting the promotion of golf and setting exceptional standards in the region. It currently has two courses and 27 holes at PGA Ocean’s 4, located in Playa Nueva Romana, about 100 km east of Santo Domingo and 30 km from La Romana.

Playa Nueva Romana GolfCarlos de Linares, general director of PGA Ocean`s 4, expresses that “at Bahia Principe Golf, our goal is to offer a world-class golf experience, where the passion for the sport is combined with the natural beauty of the Caribbean environment”.

Linares also highlights that last January, PGA Ocean’s 4 at Playa Nueva Romana joined the stand of the Ministry of Tourism of the Dominican Republic (Mitur) for the first time, promoting the country as a golf destination at the PGA Merchandise Show, held at the Orlando Convention Center. This collaboration is one more sign to boost tourism in the region and strengthen the country’s position as a leading destination in the golf industry.

Golf between the sea and lakes

The PGA Ocean’s 4 academy golf courses, overlooking the ocean, are designed to take advantage of varied topography with multiple levels and slopes, giving them a distinctive character and adding an additional level of challenge to the playing experience.

Bahía Príncipe Golf has two attractive golf courses in Playa Nueva Romana, with a total of 27 holes. One of them, an 18-hole par 72, is designed for intermediate and advanced players. The other, a 9-hole par 27, is designed for beginners or those who are new to the sport.

The 18-hole course stands out for its variety and modernity, designed by Maverick Golf. This course, the second official “Championship course” tournament course developed by Grupo Piñero, features four styles of holes in different environments. From holes surrounded by lakes and Parkland-type waterfalls to those bordering the Caribbean Sea with a touch of Links, and finally, landscapes with large rocks and Desert-style sand.

There is also a 9-hole par 3 golf course, created to provide fun and challenge to players of all levels. With holes varying between 100 and 200 meters, in just one hour, golfers will be able to complete the entire course and enjoy golf in a more accessible and relaxed way, forgetting the strict etiquette and complicated rules of golf.

The academy has more than 80 practice stations and 8 indoor stations, along with specially designed putting and chipping green areas.

It also offers a variety of programs designed to provide students with a complete golf experience. From private and group lessons to the opportunity to play with a professional, participate in two-day camps, corporate events and fun golf sessions, each option designed to ensure effective learning on the course.
