A links-lover's paradise, Puerto Rico is home to more than 20 golf courses, almost all of which could be considered championship-level design. Puerto Rico's luxury resorts offer some of the best 18 holes on the island. Note that many clubs may still be recovering from the devastating effects of Hurricane Maria.

The Royal Isabela is a firm favourite, the links looking out onto the beautiful waves of the islands northwest coast. Over on the east coast, the white shores of Coco Beach offer two courses designed by American golf stalwart Tom Kite. It also boasts the status of being the venue for the Puerto Rico Open.

Tee off at the luxurious Bahia Beach, with palm trees shading fairways that run alongside saltwater lagoons and residences just a short walk away from sea. Lastly, the globally-acclaimed courses of Dorado Beach are found on the north of the island. A memorable setup of luxury and opulence, its East Course, Pineapple Course, and Sugarcane Course are considered PGA Tour standard.
