I read the reviews thinking I had the wrong course? This was dry, brown, and I'm not kidding when I say you broke tees trying to put them into the ground. They must not water? We passed another course close to Montego Bay that looked amazing. Bypass this!!.my friends all agreed this was the worst course they ever played! After... More

This golf course has changed hands a few times over the years and is in a good location so I'm not sure why its not in better shape. Its being utilized by several resorts within a 20 km. area and should be generating enough money to keep it better shape. The cost to play is not cheep if your not... More

My husband enjoyed 11 days of golf. He was very happy to meet up with Bill, the caddy he had last year. Very patient and provided lots of usable tips. The green fees are included/unlimited as stated in our Sunwing package, but yes you do have to pay for a cart/caddy/gratuity...not unusual at resorts where "golf is included". The course... More

We played the golf course 3 times and enjoyed it very much. The course is in good condition, plain and surrounded by nice villas. Especially our caddies Clive and Victor were excellent and we had a lot of fun. Also Karl is a very good golf trainer.

There are positive and so-so features about the course. The positives--As we were staying at the attached Jewel hotel for a golf vacation for 4 guys, it was great that the course was right there, about a 2 minute golf cart ride from the Jewel resort. It's an easy course to play with little trouble. There is snow on the... More
