One of just two championship golf courses on the island, this course is within easy reach of the beaches and shopping areas found around the Jolly Harbour Marina. The par-71 course is dotted with seven distinct lakes, adding a bit of challenge. But outside of the 15th hole, the course is very manageable for players of all abilities.
Jolly Harbour Golf Course welcomes golfers every day of the week. The greens, holes, and feared sand traps reflect the design of Karl Litton, the lead architect of Jolly Harbour Golf Course. It has been given a course rating of 65.0, and its 18 holes stretch out a total of 5237 yards. Also be aware that there is a pro, André Maltais, available on-site ready to help first-timers work on their skills or provide more advanced help for trained players.
The course was sculpted into the lush, hilly landscape of eastern Antigua, so you can expect a few elevation changes. You'll be looking out onto Jolly Harbour Marina and the Caribbean Sea stretching out beyond that. There's usually a good eastern breeze from the ocean that will keep you cool on the fairways.
