Right in the middle of the famous Seven Mile Beach is North Sound Golf Club, the only 18-hole Championship course in the Cayman Islands. You'll have panoramic ocean views, and good chances to enjoy the area's native flora and fauna. Mahogany and coconut palms feature prominently, tropical birds will likely be seen, and there's a good chance you'll see an iguana or two.

Course Description

The course is open year-round.

Built in 1994, this course in the Cayman Islands has become an established and respected place to play a round of golf. Roy Case is the designer of the golf course. It features a course rating of 73.1, and its 18 holes measure out to 6605 yards. Also be aware that there's a pro, Josh Shepard, available ready to help first-timers perfect their swing or give more advanced instruction for accomplished players.

Water is the distinctive feature at North Sound, and that does not mean a couple of dinky water hazards here and there. In addition to being right on the Caribbean, channels, creeks and lakes will be a factor on 15 of the 18 holes. Winds coming from multiple directions will also factor into the kind of scorecard you turn in. Each year they host the Cayman Islands Golf Invitational, which includes 12 touring professionals from the PGA Tour, European PGA Tour and LPGA Tour.
