North Sound Golf Club

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 long been welcoming visitors to its greens and fairways. Roy Case is the designer of North Sound Golf Club. It has earned a course rating of 73.1, and its 18 holes measure a total of 6605 yards. Also note that there is a golf pro, Josh Shepard, on hand who can help first-timers perfect their swing or provide more advanced instruction for trained 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.
