The course has been named a "must play" by Golf Magazine, and received their Gold Medal Award. Located in a region that's a favorite for hikers and outdoors enthusiasts, the views offered here are spectacular. The golfing is top-shelf as well, and will provide plenty of challenges. The par-3 8th is probably the most difficult, where you'll be required to hit an uphill tee shot onto a well-guarded green.

Course Description

Built in 1966, this golf course in the Virgin Islands has become an established site for visiting golfers. The layout, difficulty of the holes, and practice areas all came from the imagination of Robert Trent Jones, Sr., the architect of this golf course. It has a course rating of 68.1, and its 18 holes measure out a total of 5727 yards. Also note that there's a golf professional, Roger Mack, available on-site, so you'll especially enjoy this location if you need instruction or tips.

The golf club is set inside a lush valley on the mountainous northern part of the island. The course features excellent, deep bunkering, and natural ponds can prove irksome on a pair of holes. The fairways are lined by a variety of tropical trees, and roll along with the natural undulating landscape of the region.
