Golfers covet destinations where wonderful weather, an array of lodging, restaurants, and other activities beckon. Puerto Rico checks those boxes and provides traveling golfers with the things they prefer.

The golf destination is rising as one of the world’s best, via 18 courses and numerous resorts on the Island, and through the game’s top organizations choosing Puerto Rico to stage high-profile championships.

The PGA TOUR, United States Golf Association, R&A, and Augusta National all hold an event in Puerto Rico, have recently hosted one, or have one upcoming. The Latin America Amateur Championship will be held in the island for the first time in January 2023 – a joint effort by the USGA, R&A and Augusta National, with the winner earning a berth into the 2023 Masters and 2023 Open Championship.
