Puerto Rico Welcomes Us With Open Arms

Puerto Rico is abuzz this week for the Puerto Rico Open. Trump International Golf Club, right next door to the Gran Melia, is hosting the PGA Tour event. I hear that Donald Trump is staying somewhere on the premises, probably in one of the luxurious beachside villas.

We haven't seen Trump in person yet because, as he was losing to John Daly, we were playing a round of golf at the extraordinary Palmas del Mar.

Barry and I have our own suite at the Gran Melia checking out not only the tournament but also taking in the sites and playing golf on some of the wonderful courses nearby.

Today, we were invited to Bahia Beach and Golf Club. It is one of the most magnificent, tropical/ocean golf courses you would ever wish to play. Each hole has unsurpassed views everywhere you look. The course is challenging and can also be user-friendly, depending upon your choice of tee-box.

We will be updating you throughout the week from the Puerto Rico Open with interesting facts and pictures as we see it, both on Golf for Beginners and through Twitter. We hope you enjoy our coverage.

Stacy and Barry, I hope you both are having a great time in Puerto Rico playing golf. When you meet Donald Trump, ask him when he plans to build in Pelham Parkway, the Bronx. We have a golf course nearby. Your reporting is terrific and enjoyable to read, as always.
Stacy y Barry, espero que usted ambos esté teniendo un gran rato en Puerto Rico que juega a golf. Cuando usted encuentra a Donald Trump, pregúntele cuando él planea construir en la ruta verde de Pelham Parkway, el Bronx. Tenemos un campo de golf cerca. Su información es fabulosa y agradable leer, como siempre.
