The availability of three different gold courses at Sandy Lane allows golfers of a variety of skill levels and handicaps to enjoy a good round of golf here. The Old Nine was developed in 1961 and is a picturesque, winding course that will offer both unique challenges for golfers and will also give visitors sweeping views of the shimmering waters of the Caribbean below, particularly from the higher elevation holes.

Course Description

This course has become a well-established place to tee off, founded in 1961. The layout, difficulty of the holes, and bunkers were created by Tom Fazio, the lead architect of the course. Their 9 holes stretch out a total of 3345 yards.

The course features some magnificent old trees and occasional thick patches of foliage which you'll need to avoid getting your ball stuck in. With its location so close to the water, wind can sometimes be an issue, but the western coast is the calmer side, and you might very well have only a gentle breeze. The greatest thing about the course is its intimate and timeless feel, which has made it a favorite among regulars and old-timers.
