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.
This golf course has made itself a well-established spot to play some holes, having been built in 1966. The lay of the land, holes, and practice areas all came from the imagination of Robert Trent Jones, Sr., the architect of Carambola Beach Golf Club. The golf course has been given a course rating of 68.1, and its 18 holes stretch out a distance of 5727 yards. Also be aware that there's a golf pro, Roger Mack, available at the course who can help first-timers work on their skills or provide more advanced instruction for experienced players.
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.
