Greetings from Punta Cana in the Dominican Republic. I’ve arrived at my home base for the next few days, Secrets Cap Cana Resort & Spa. I’m here for a HOG World Tour stop to review a couple of Dominican Republic golf courses and resorts. Check out this amazing place.
While I’m here I will have quite a full schedule so I won’t be able to do a ton of blog posts. I will however be making social posts often so tune into the HOG Twitter, HOG Facebook, and HOG Instagram for more of a live stream.
I spent the afternoon relaxing on the great soft sandy beach here, sampling some of the all-inclusive “beverages” as seen in the photo below. I swam in the warm waters. The depth is about three feet for probably 300 yards or more from the shore. It’s great.
Contrary to popular belief the Dominican Republic was not destroyed by hurricane Irma or xxx. Fortunately for this island in the Caribbean the hurricanes didn’t hit here directly like they did Puerto Rico. One may have heard that “Dominica” was decimated, but that is a small island; not the same as the Dominican Republic.
Coming up I’ll be checking out golf architect Pete Dye’s Teeth of the Dog course as well as Jack Nicklaus’s Punta Cana course.
Stay tuned here and on the social networks mentioned above. I can guarantee it’s going to be great stuff.
