Course Description

Built in 1979, this golf course in the Virgin Islands has made itself an established place to tee off. The layout, holes, and surprise challenges were created by George & Tom Fazio, the architect of the course. It has earned a course rating of 68.9, and its 18 holes stretch out a distance of 5609 yards. Also be aware that there's a golf pro, Nevin Philips, at the grounds who can help novices practice their skills or provide more advanced instruction for trained players.

Located on the northern part of Charlotte Amalie amid the numerous island resorts in the area, the course is home to a great variety of native trees, including mango, palm, and as the name would suggest, mahogany. The fairways are kept green year-round, and with a couple of exceptions, are generous in their width. Greens are planted with Seashore Paspalum, while the fairways feature Bermuda Grass.
