Description:

Add this once-in-a-lifetime golf experience to your “must play” list...

Add this once-in-a-lifetime golf experience to your “must play” list located within the Santa Barbara Planation. Designed by the legendary golf architect Pete Dye, the par 72 Old Quarry Golf Course draws its name from the historic quarries where famed Curaçao marble is mined. If you’re looking for a phenomenal getaway, our golf course is the perfect choice. Pete Dye's championship seaside layout was designed to fit seamlessly into the islands's hills and valleys. A challenge to players of all skill levels, the course meanders between the stunning blue Caribbean Sea, the slopes and hills of the Tafelberg Mountain and the sheltered bay known as Spanish Water. To assure it would be built true to the conservation principles of Santa Barbara's owners, Pete Dye's son P.B.Dye along with the Golf Manager, Jim Bolinger, planted its fairways and greens with the hearty Paspalum grass, which can be irrigated using both brackish and recycled water. A handsome clubhouse and restaurant answer golfers' needs and provide a spectacular view of the Caribbean Sea.

We golfed at Old Quarry our first day at Santa Barbara Resort. The course was very beautiful yet very challenging because of the winds especially along the water....had a wonderful time and here's a bonus - I shot well !!!

Beautiful views, challenging course, reasonable price for a resort. You cannot see another hole from the hole you are playing, giving you the sense that the course is yours, almost to yourself. If you are going to Curacao you must play here. Better yet, go to Aruba and fly over to play, then fly back. It is a 20 minute... More

I've played this course several times and love the layout. There is a mixture of relatively straightforward holes and some that are tricky. No gimmicks though. Greens putter true. This course is situated along the sea and it gets windy! A great test of golf. I played here 3 times this trip. This is a course worthy of 5 stars,... More

This is an exciting course, with breathtaking views. Our first day on the course, we spent more time enjoying the scenery than playing golf. The caddymaster is a great friendly boy. The course is suberbly well maintained. We played 7 times during our 12 day stay.

The course has dramatic scenery and elevation changes. Every hole is interesting. No two holes are the same. Very playable even in the constant winds of curacao.
