The layout, difficulty of the holes, and sand traps reflect the design of Robert Von Hagge, Rick Baril and Mike Smelek, the architect of White Witch Course. The golf course has earned a course rating of 72.2, and its 18 holes stretch out a distance of 6365 yards. Also be aware that there's a pro, Kevyn Cunningham, a former David Leadbetter Instructor, on the premises ready to help newbies work on their skills or provide more advanced help 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.
