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.

The golf course had amazing ocean views and was scenic from every direction. The course and rental equipment were in great condition and the staff was helpful and friendly. We golfed the course twice and our group had a great time. We will definitely play this course again when we visit Curacao.

Second trip with a group of golfers and just loved the course and the staff. They had top of the line equipment to rent and had everything we needed to play. Ocean views on over half the holes. Loved it.

This Golf course was totally amazing. The views and the greens were excellent. I won't lie. We lost some golf balls on the course, but, we had so much fun. I will definitely be back. This was such a great family trip. The staff there was first class. "Thank you", for a great time.

Awesome views, challenging layout, lots of wind! Bring your own clubs, the loaners were not great for a regular golfer.

Interesting course with not easy to play greens. Never boring. Special treatment is the "drink cart" that suddenly shows up and can offer you beer, coca cola or other things.

Sights are phenomenal. Bring your own balls. Only bring your clubs if you have to play with yours. The fee to fly is the same fee to rent & it's an extra piece of luggage :/

Rented clubs were in poor shape. Very expensive for the experience. Staff was not the friendliest and the bathrooms on the course were hard to find.
