The Punta Espada Golf Course meanders across over 7,000 yards of beautiful landscape that is covered in scenic waterfalls, cliffs, and tropical vegetation. In combination with the course's seaside location, it is no wonder that the designer, Jack Nicklaus, considered the setting an excellent backdrop for golf. Nicklaus took advantage of all of the natural features of the course to create a challenging 18-hole layout with eight holes that skirt the coastline. One of these holes is Punta Espada's signature, the par-3 13th, which requires a forced carry over the ocean to a green that is also surrounded by water.
