Manchester Country Club

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.

Course Description

This golf course could be considered an established location to play some holes, having been built in 1865. They have 9 holes here, which stretch out a total length 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.
