Route 693
Dorado Beach, PR 00646

Puerto Rico's Dorado Beach hosted the Senior Tour Championship from 1988 to '93 and features a pair of 18-hole resort courses designed by Robert Trent Jones.

Although the West is considerably easier than the East, the vagaries of the wind on the West confound the best of players. The gusts are particularly challenging on the 170-yard 13th hole, which plays into the teeth of the ocean breeze.

Mike Hill must have been sad to see the Senior Tour Championship moved from Dorado after the 1993 event. Hill won the first two Senior Tour Championships, in 1990 and 1991, on Dorado's East Course. In the former, Hill defeated Dale Douglass and Lee Trevino in a playoff.
