St. Andrews Golf Club

Course Description

Built in 1891, this course on Trinidad and Tobago has become a staple of the area. The golf course has been given a course rating of 70.0, and its 18 holes have a total length of 6809 yards. Also note that there is a golf professional, Anthony Gill, handy who can help beginners perfect their swing or give advanced pointers for experienced players.

Carved out of the forested and mountainous region of inland Trinidad, the undulating landscape will provide unique challenges at every hole. The fairways are thin, and errant tee shots could very well end up in the dense jungle that surrounds the course.

St. Andrews Golf Course is a par 72 stretching as far as 6,555 yards from the back tee box and 5,375 yards from the front tee box. Although not particularly long the course requires precise and accurate golf shots. You must position your ball in the right places in order to score well. Risk and reward is the best known phrase for this championship golf course. The more you choose to cut the corners the greater the reward although the greater the risk of getting in to trouble.

Golfers of all abilities enjoy playing at St. Andrews Golf Club. There are no forced carries off the tee box and the greens are very receptive to approach shots. The course is challenging yet playable for those of higher handicaps.

Members and guests have full access to all the facilities such as the swimming pool, bar and restaurant, driving range, chipping green, putting green, fully stocked Pro-shop, and newly renovated locker rooms.
