College and PGA Tour events summon visitors to discover Puerto Rico golf and other island attractions this winter
SAN JUAN, PUERTO RICO, December 2, 2019 – As winter and darkness descend across much of North America, Puerto Rico comes alive with spirit warming tropical courses, golf-package specials, and top competitive events that showcase the first-class attributes of our Caribbean oasis.

The 54-hole tournament will include Notre Dame, Kansas, Army, Kentucky, Indiana, Boston College, Coastal Carolina, Kansas State, Louisville, VCU, Rutgers, Michigan State, and North Carolina Greensboro.
TPC Dorado Beach includes the exceptional East Course. Both courses are amenities of Dorado Beach, a Ritz-Carlton Reserve, which was rated one of the Top 100 U.S. Golf Resorts by Golf Magazine. Additionally, the resort was ranked in the Top 5 of the Luxury Resort category along with iconic Pebble Beach in California.

One of the Island’s great bonuses for players is the astounding array of after-round options. At Dorado Beach and Wyndham Grand Rio Mar Puerto Rico Golf and Beach Resort, for example, one can complement a game of golf at Rio Mar or Dorado Beach with kite surfing. Both are world class places for this adrenalin boosting activity, and lessons are available at Rio Mar, which will serve as a training center for Olympic kite surfing teams that will compete in the 2024 Games in Paris.
