Jamaica: Golf

Clear seas, Cocktails, Rastafarianism and Reggae

If golf is your thing, Jamaica offers several world-class courses, including one of the oldest in the Caribbean. There are only 10 courses across the island but each course will offer any holiday golfer distinctive character. Most are attached to resorts but some, like the Tryall Golf club near Montego Bay, are private resort areas where golfers either own their own villas, or can rent. But even if you don’t stay at one of the villas, your hotel concierge may be able to organise a visit to the course. If you’re an inexperienced golfer heading to Jamaica, you may want to try the Negril Hills Golf Club, where you will be in good company. Other golf courses in Jamaica worth visiting are the Sandals Golf and country Club, the Half Moon, Rose Hall and the Manchester club, which is the Caribbean’s oldest course. Prices range from €45 - €150. Caddies are also mandatory at most courses and they usually cost €4 - €11, on average.
