The legal currency in the Dominican Republic is the Pesos, however, most business is conducted in US Dollars

We suggest that you bring an estimate of the cash you will need in US dollars. In most cases, if you run out of cash you can always pay by credit card in most establishments. Pesos is the local currency and is excepted everywhere in the Dominican Republic. US dollars are widely accepted, but when paying US cash, expect to receive your change in Pesos. Should you need more cash, ATMs are available, but note that the money it will dispense is in Dominican Pesos. When making a withdrawal, you will need to calculate the amount of US dollars into pesos. For you convenience, here is a quick exchange table:

US$1 = RD$46.00

Be sure to check with your bank what the charges will be. The banks are also a good place to change money and are open
Monday – Friday usually 9:00 am – 4:00 pm. It is more expensive to change money at travel agencies or hotels.

• The electric power frequency is 110 V 60 Hz

• Don’t forget sunscreen and bug repellent with at least 20% DEET — Off Deep Woods is good (you may need it after a rain shower)

• The tipping is not mandatory but is a nice thing to do when someone works hard to please you. But in general you can tip: the luggage carrier $1.00 USD per bag, the maid like $3.00 to $5.00 USD per person/day, and the waitress/butler about $25.00 USD per day.

At most golf courses, caddies are NOT mandatory but available. Note that the caddie fees are to be paid in CASH US Dollars to the caddie directly at the end of each round. The usual fee is US$30.00 per cart and an additional tip to your discretion is expected. We recommend that you take you golf Bag back to your Room/Villa after every round to avoid the long wait at the course while the caddies search through the hundreds of bags already stored there.

In the Dominican Republic it is expected to play a round in less than 4.5 hours per round. Please try to enjoy your round and keep up with the players in front of you. If you fall more than a hole behind, please wave the group behind you through so the flow of play continues.

Because the courses are semi-private and cater to mostly tourists, the minimum handicap required to play is 36. This means that you may encounter less skilled golfers.

Proper golf attire is required at all of the golf courses. This applies to both players and rider alike – collared shirts, tailored pants or Bermuda length shorts (no cutoffs), and appropriate footwear are acceptable.

Men:      T-shirts, sleeveless shirts, Jeans and sweat pants are not acceptable.
Women: T-shirts, tank tops, spaghetti string shirt, Jeans and sweat pants are not acceptable.

Balls, Gloves, sunscreen, etc. are much more expensive than what you are used to. We suggest that you bring enough balls to last your stay or be prepared to pay between US$16 – US$21.00 per sleeve. We recommend that you bring a few extra gloves in order to have enough to let each dry out between rounds. The where in the Dominican Republic is very humid and you will probably sweat more than usual.
