Owner description: 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.

I was hoping to practice in the driving range, having some lessons, and play a few days at the course but the lady at the Old Quarry was not in a good mode to provide me the assistance I needed to accomplish my plans. The final result. 12 days stay at Santa Barbara resort and did not touch the golf... More

The driving range is a bit far, make sure you allow plenty of time for the ten minute cart ride to get there and back.

The greens were in fantastic shape and never seemed dry, considering the climate. The course did not seem busy any of the 4 times we played. I would recommend buying a series of 3 rounds if you plan to play that often, as it allows you to play any time of the day for a reduced cost (I.e. We played... More

Highly recommended for avid golfers. Beautiful and relaxing course with stunning views from every hole. The sun is very hot so bring a ton of water.

We enjoyed this course. The scenery was beautiful. We played 9 holes in the late afternoon. The course was almost empty.

I am not a golfer, but I did take a class while there. I surprisingly enjoyed it! The teacher was knowledgeable. While I cannot grade the course itself as I don't know enough about golf to truly grade it, from what I saw, it was impressive.

Played 5 rounds on this beautiful course. Great design, in really good shape. Well worth it! Just make sure you have plenty of water as beverage cart did not make too many appearances, one day we only saw it on 17.

I don't golf, but my partner loved it and said it was the nicest golf course he had ever played. It's hot and sunny at 7am, so layer on the sunscreen!

I have played gollf in many locations in the Caribbean. I would say this is a well designed course but with average scenery and average maintenance for an upscale course. The course is well designed and is difficult. It starts by smashing you in the teeth with 2 holes directly into the fierce prevailing wind. There is no bailout area... More
