Pointe-a-Pierre Golf Club

The course was originally a 9 hole course designed for expatriates working at the nearby oil refinery, but has since expanded. Located in a long-time residential area, the course is lined by many old trees, and as you play by the aptly named Mango Avenue starting on the 12th hole, you'll find a number of large mango trees you'll need to try to play around.
