Tryall Golf Course

Two additional courses have been built at Montego Bay, but Tryall is certainly the most historic and might just offer the best round of golf. You'll face a number of natural challenges, including an undulating landscape and well-placed trees. The ninth tee offers sweeping views of the the mountainous interior, the Caribbean Sea, and the old Tryall House, which was established back in the 1830's.

Course Description

The course is open all year-round.

This golf course has made itself a classic spot to hit a round of golf, since it was founded in 1962. The course layout, difficulty of the holes, and sand traps were created by Ralph Plummer, the lead architect of the course. The golf course has been given a course rating of 70.5, and its 18 holes stretch out a distance of 6228 yards. Also be aware that they've got a pro, Ewan Peebles, on hand ready to help novices work on their skills or give advanced help for seasoned golfers.

Along Jamaica's northern coast, the course offers stunning views of the Caribbean and one of the finest tournament golfing experiences in the Caribbean. You'll begin ocean-side, work your your way past coconut palm into the Jamaican foothills, then curve back towards the coast. Exotic birds and dolphins can be seen almost any time of year.
