Sandals Golf and Country Club

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.

Course Description

It has earned a course rating of 70.9, and its 18 holes measure a total distance 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.
