Golf here dates to 1958, when Laurance Rockefeller, a pioneer in barefoot elegance, built a resort in Dorado and hired Robert Trent Jones to design its fabled East Course. Now Puerto Rico has 23 courses designed by legendary golf pros. We try out the Ocean Course at the Wyndham Grand Rio Mar Beach Resort, and then the St. Regis Bahia Beach Resort & Golf Club with Chi Chi Rodriguez, first Puerto Rican inducted into the World Golf Hall of Fame. We also tool around the Royal Isabela, “the Pebble Beach of the Caribbean,” which sprawls at the edge of a 300′-high bluff overlooking the crashing Atlantic, looking more like a link course at the edge of Ireland than a tropical fairway.
