Built in 2000, this golf course in Jamaica has become an established site for visiting golfers. The greens, hole placement, and feared sand traps are all part of the design by Robert Von Hagge, Rick Baril and Mike Smelek, the lead architect of this golf course. It has earned a course rating of 72.2, and its 18 holes have a total distance of 6365 yards. Also be aware that there is a golf pro, Kevyn Cunningham, a former David Leadbetter Instructor, on-site who can help beginners work on their swing or provide more advanced pointers for experienced players.

The course is set in a truly magical spot, and it's difficult to tell if the rave reviews it receives come more from the great golf or from the unbelievable views it offers. The stark elevation changes of the rolling Jamaican landscape along with the well-bunkered greens add to the difficulty of play here, but the caddies will provide useful advice and will be very helpful in maneuvering about the course.
