The Corales Puntacana Resort and Club Championship is a golf tournament in the Dominican Republic on the PGA Tour, formerly on the Web.com Tour. It was first played in 2016 at the Corales Golf Club in Punta Cana,[2] on the east coast in the La Altagracia province.

After two years as a Web.com Tour event, it transitioned to a PGA Tour alternate event (opposite the WGC Match Play in Texas), starting in March 2018.[1] The first PGA Tour event held in the Dominican Republic, it is similar in rewards to other alternate events: 300 FedEx Cup points for the winner, a two-year tour exemption, 24 OWGR points, but no invitation to the Masters Tournament.[3]

The inaugural event in 2016 was held in early June, then moved to early May in 2017.
