This is one of the most beautiful and well-kept golf courses in Jamaica. The course was bought by Sandals in 1992, and they have made some positive changes to the course, replacing the greens with Bermuda grass, and resurfacing the fairways as well, and in the process turning it into a very fine course. It's set in a beautiful location, and while the layout doesn't look all that dangerous, you might find yourself second-guessing your club selection quite a bit.
The golf course has been given a course rating of 70.9, and its 18 holes stretch out a length of 6311 yards.
Golfers will enjoy sweeping views of both the turquoise waters of the Caribbean and Jamaica's mountainous interior. The fairways are lined by mature trees, and the course is surrounded by lush, tropical vegetation. The presence of a few lakes might be a factor on a couple of holes, and they also serve to attract some of the area's interesting wildlife. The fairways are narrow and provide a view of both the sea and the mountains. Other facilities include a golf shop, club storage facilities, changing facilities, a driving range, a pro shop, a jerk shop, a restaurant, and a clubhouse.

There are no greens fees for golfers staying at any of the Sandals resorts on the island, though you will have to pay for a caddy. Caddy prices range from $20-30 per bag for 18 holes, and $15-20 for 9 holes. You can also rent clubs, shoes, and a cart, though having a cart is not mandatory.
Sandals Golf and Country Club is in the same region as Ocho Rios, the most close by metropolitan area, so a trip into the city is a definite option.
