Punta Cana’s Golf Nirvana La Cana Golf Course
By Tim Cotroneo
“Punta Cana is the nearest point to paradise in the middle of nowhere.” That’s how Olivier Brizon describes his home of the past eight years, located on the southeastern tip of the Dominican Republic.
Brizon, the Director of Golf at Punta Cana’s La Cana Golf Course, noted that last year “nowhere” had two million tourists hit its shores seeking sun, surf, and increasingly, golf. A major factor in the area’s growing popularity is a surge in the building of world-class golf courses designed by some of the biggest names in the industry.
