Course Review and Comments
This was the first time I had played this course - first up, its name is deceptive as only one hole, to which you have to take a long detour, is even remotely near the ocean (16th). That aside it is a reasonably good track, as you would expect from the Fazios, which is fair to single figure players and holiday golfers alike. My one criticism is the greens were very poor, too sandy and full of aeration holes. I know it is the time of year to do it here (the sister River Course was closed for similar work), but at $150 a round, you'd expect better greens (my home course of Mahogany Run on St Thomas, which I played only two days before, had its usual exceptional greens on display). Other than that, I cannot fault the service we received from all staff and the clubhouse faciltiers are excellent - also the GPS on the carts made a first round on some blind holes far easier than would have otherwise been the case).
I would play there again, provided the greens were in better shape, although I am keen to try the Greg Norman designed River Course, as well as the other top courses PR has to offer.

Reasonably interesting layout and a good challenge. The Ocean name is based on one hole miles from the rest. Course was rather wet but still in good condition.

Nice layout, but not worth the price. If you stay on the resort I don't think you get your monies worth in your stay. I suggest looking at other courses to play and other resorts to stay on your next

Starting with a military discount for active duty only, you’re not making the grade. Trump and Arthur Hills offered a price for retirees that acknowledged the service of our veterans. I know you rec

Having been to other 5 star facilities in WV, MD, AZ and Barbatos my wife and I were VERY dissapointed with the room conditions, service, food and treatment at the course.
I have not even been to a p
