Among professional athletes, El Tinto is a challenging field. In addition to natural obstacles, golfers have to deal with the natural elements. Due to the fact that the coastline runs a couple of kilometers, and the breezes of the Caribbean Sea make themselves felt.
The course is designed in such a way that golfers are in complete privacy during the passage of holes. Each hole opens access to itself only upon the arrival of the ball. This route is called “repeating nines”.
