Punta Borinquen Golf Club is one of only three golf courses on the Western Side of Puerto Rico. It is located in Aguadilla, the other two are Royal Isabela located in Isabela and Club Deportivo del Oeste in Cabo Rojo.
Punta Borinquen Golf Club is a 18 hole par 72 course and driving range that opened in 1940, making it the first public golf course in Puerto Rico. Yes, Aguirre Golf Club opened 12 years earlier, but at that time it was still a private course. The big claim to fame here is that Punta Borinquen was a favorite destination of President Dwight D. Eisenhower.
The region of Aguadilla where the course is located formerly housed a large military base. Today, it has been downsized to a smaller US Coast Guard Air Station.
The course itself is located on a beautiful cliff at the North West tip of Puerto Rico. The beach, ocean, and sunset views here are spectacular. There is even a small narrow road that bisects the course and goes down in elevation to local beach where you can see “The Ruins”, which are the remains of the original Aguadilla Lighthouse. It was heavily damaged by an Earthquake and Tsunami, prompting the construction of a new Lighthouse on the cliff just North of Punta Borinquen Golf Club.
