Jack Nicklaus course completed

Postby Anthony » Wed Sep 13, 2006 7:39 am

DR1 is reporting the following:

Cap Cana has announced that all 18 holes of the Punta Espada course, part of the Cap Cana luxury tourism development, are now open and ready for play. The opening precedes the official inauguration that is set for 8 November with the participation of Jack Nicklaus, the golf legend, himself. The back nine holes opened for play in July. Punta Espada is the first of three Jack Nicklaus Signature Golf courses planned for Cap Cana. Punta Espada was built at an estimated cost of US$18 million. According to Sam Logan, director of operations, many are considering the course's signature hole as No. 13, a spectacular 249-yard par 3 that is expected to become one of the world's most photographed holes. It requires golfers to execute a challenging tee shot over the ocean into a picturesque green surrounded by the turquoise waters of the Caribbean. For a hole-by-hole description of the new course, see http://www.dr1.com/travelnews/archive/2 ... pada.shtml
