Course Description

Tee times and transfers to other golf courses in Jamaica can be arranged through the course's website or customer service. Generally speaking though, tee times can be reserved between 7:00am and 5:00pm. Founded in 2000, this course in Jamaica has become a staple of the area.

This golf course could be considered a well-established place to play some holes, since it was founded in 2000. The lay of the land, holes, and surprise challenges all came from the imagination of Robert Von Hagge, Rick Baril and Mike Smelek, the lead architect of this golf course. The golf course features a course rating of 72.2, and its 18 holes measure a total length of 6365 yards. Also be aware that there is a golf professional, Kevyn Cunningham, a former David Leadbetter Instructor, at the grounds, so think about this location if you think you could use a few pointers.

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.
