C harlotte's hosting of the PGA Champion- ship at Quail Hollow Club in August is generating a new level of golf fever here, spurring many to seek the ultimate golf holiday. A look south to the Domini- can Republic's Punta Cana on the island's east coast yields Puntacana Resort & Club, a shimmering getaway where salt air, azure seas and balmy trade winds envelop 45 holes of out- standing golf in the Caribbean. Just a three-hour nonstop flight from Charlotte, Punta Cana is an all-season destination where the weather is mild, the beaches stretch for miles and culinary discoveries are true tropical treasures. The lush 26-square-mile, eco-minded resort includes several accommodation options, which include the Tortuga Bay Hotel, a baker's dozen collection of beachfront villas with interiors designed by Oscar de la Renta, and the Westin Punta Cana, a family-friendly upscale property situated directly on Playa Blanca Beach. Be as active as you like with kitesurfing, paddle boarding, beachside yoga or tennis on the resort's clay, grass or hard- surface courts. Or, do nothing at all. A good beach novel and a tropical smoothie while loung- ing poolside are formidable foils for shaking off the hustle of the Queen City. found Punta Cana is Heaven for Golf, Relaxation and Tropical Treats By Michael J.
