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.

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.

A Pete Dye Course, no other words! Everything is well kept, the course is fantastic, suitable for all players, and when there is the full moon, you can play under the moonlight. FANTASTIC.

Wonderful and difficult golf course in awesome setting. A real Dye course, elevated greens which were firm and fast. Beautiful driving vistas. We played on a very windy day which made the smallish greens almost impossible to hit. The recovery skills required are significant. Have to come back.

The course has scenic views of the ocean, desert hills and presents some challenges. The first two holes run right along the shoreline offering beautiful vista's of the sea. If you slice, you ball will be swallowed by the ocean. Fortunately the course was no crowded so it was easy to get a tee time and there was no wait.... More

Ok most Caribbean golf courses leave something to the imagination. This course is off the hook. Absolutely fantastic. Beautiful, in great shape, on the Ocean and up the mountain from which the Old Quarry gets its name. The greens are lightning quick. The driving range is the nicest you may ever see. A bit of a clip to get there... More
