Golf Course Overview:
With the outbreak of World War II the United States Army opened a new air base in Aguadilla Puerto Rico (1939) and with it comes the first golf course on the island with 18 holes and grass greens. A favorite of President Eisenhower built around 1940. Set atop a cliff side promontory, this par 72 course offers a sweeping view of the point where the Atlantic Ocean meets the Caribbean Sea.
In 1973 the military base closed and the golf course became the first public course in Puerto Rico. Punta Borinquen Golf Club has one of the most spectacular sunsets and ocean views in Puerto Rico. By season the golfers have the opportunity to see whales playing and jumping in the beautiful and warm Atlantic Ocean.
Straight and open fairways with an abundance of sand traps and many of a special species of palm only found in the region of the west coast of Puerto Rico. Mild westerly cross winds provide a constant challenge.
