This is the Caribbean's oldest golf course, and typifies what might be called "the old New England" layout, meaning it uses the natural contours of the landscape to its advantage rather than bulldozing the area to make it fit a design not suited to the region. As for the play, subtly and craftiness, as opposed to sheer power, are rewarded at this course.
Founded in 1865, this golf course in Jamaica has become an established site for visiting golfers. There are 9 holes here, which measure out to a total of 2865 yards.
The country club is carved into the rolling hills of southern Jamaica's interior. At an elevation of more than 2000 feet, you'll have some truly special views throughout your round. The course is not long, but greens are relatively small and can be difficult to hit at times. Moreover, because the greens are true to the natural landscape, they can have a decent amount of slope to them.

Manchester Country Club is definitely not a big city beach; the closest populated area is Mandeville. The city is a half mile out from the course. Because it's so near by, it will not take long to make a trip with a little exploration in the city.
The activeness of the golf course——bustling and full, or virtually empty—— will depend on if you visit during a popular season, which is often indicated by how busy the hotels are. You won't find long strips of hotel rooms near the course, meaning the region shouldn't be overflowing with additional travelers.
