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.
Built in 1865, this course in Jamaica has long been welcoming visitors to its greens and fairways. They have 9 holes here, which measure a total distance 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 outside the city, with its closest urban neighbor being Mandeville. This city is a half mile away from the course. Because it's so near by, it won't take too long to head that way for a little urban exploration.
The number of other vacationers sharing the green can vary widely, depending on everything from the time of day to how packed the area's hotels are. You won't find excessive numbers of hotel rooms within easy reach of the course, so the region is rarely crawling with other travelers. The following table shows the decent selection of places to stay available near the clubhouse.
