Course Description

Built in 1927, this course on Trinidad and Tobago has become an established and respected place to play a round of golf. The layout, difficulty of the holes, and bunkers all came from the imagination of W.S. Fulton and Ram Goberdhan, the lead architect of Brechin Castle Golf Club. Visiting golfers are able to enjoy 9 distinct holes.

The course is set in the middle of a group of sugar cane fields. The terrain is gently undulating, rolling along as it is with the surrounding countryside. Brechin Castle isn't a terribly long course, and it best suits the abilities of beginner and intermediate players, though low-handicappers will still find it a nice course for a bit of practice.
