The course designed by Jose Gancedo is not very extravagant, but it is still a good course where you can improve your golfing skills. The landscape of the White Sands Golf Course in Punta Cana has a lot of paspalum grass and a pretty decent amount of sand bunkers. The terrain is quite flat with little to none elevated zones. The18 hole course has almost 7000 yards in length and the holes are basically divided into 2 main areas: 9 holes are located inside the residential complex while the other 9 are in the front area. The holes of the course are not that easy; they can be quite tricky even for seasoned golfers.
The narrow fairways of the course can be a lot of fun for players that are beginning to grasp the true enjoyment of this fine sport. The shot for the first hole requires a lot of power as you will want to avoid the left and right bunkers. The 2nd shot at the White Sands Golf Course in Punta Cana can be complicated as it will carry some water to get to the tee and in the 3rd one you have to be careful with the stream that cuts through the fairway at approximately 85 yards from the small green that you need to target. The path between the 5th hole and the 8th hole is quite simple with some small bunkers close by but nothing really serious.
