Also on the South coast in the resort town of Juan Dolio is the Metro Country Club, which opened in 1995, and features the 18-hole, par 72 "Los Marlins" course. Los Marlins was designed by the award-winning, internationally-acclaimed golf course architect, Charles Ankrom. The new resort/residential golf community, advertised in Golf Digest, Golf Magazine, and Travel & Leisure, is now host to the annual Juan Marichal Celebrity Charity Golf Classic. This charity event is held every December, and lures the participation of baseball All-Stars and PGA golf celebrities.
Metro Country Club is also the Caribbean's location of Paul Dionne's International Academy of Golf, which is headquartered in Las Vegas. This academy employs golf professionals to instruct both beginners and advanced players. Metro is located adjacent to many of the first-class hotels and resorts in the Juan Dolio area.
These hotels, along with several resorts in nearby Boca Chica, offer all-inclusive golf packages to the Metro Club. One such resort is the Coral Costa Caribe Beach Hotel, which has three and seven night packages. The packages include lodging, all meals and drinks, a complete daytime activity program and 2 rounds of golf for a three night stay or 4 rounds for a seven night stay. Use of the driving range and bucket of balls are also included. The Coral Hamaca Beach Hotel in Boca Chica offers similar packages with golf played at the Metro Club.
The Talanquera Country & Beach Resort in Juan Dolio recently built its own golf facilities with the Guavaberry Golf & Country Club, an 18-hole Gary Player signature golf course.
