Golfers traveling to Trinidad and Tobago will be pleasantly surprised that there are several top notch golf courses on the main islands.
Golf courses on Trinidad are open year round, but avid golfers should note that golfing is best done during the dry season, which falls between the months of January and May.
The Trinidad and Tobago Golf Association (TTGA) works to preserve and promote the game of golf on the islands. All eight golf courses on the island are governed by the TTGA, which means they are held to the highest standards and strive to provide guests with the optimal golfing environment. TTGA hosts several major golf events each year, have programs for youth golfing, and work with the government to promote golf tourism.
