I loved everything about the course. It was very big and it was hard to lose your ball; especially with Phillip there...

I played here because it was included in our pkg. It still cost me 120.00 US$. The course was in need of some updates. The caddie was great and if i had not had him, I would have never found my way around. There are no clear cart paths and they are short on rainfall, so the fairways were brown.... More

The course is long from the white tees, with several par fours over 400 yds, one at 450 yds. Too long for me, so I teed off from the senior tees. The fairways were dormant as this is the dry season. Greens were nice, and rolled true. Several interesting holes. A caddie is mandatory and quite fun. She was very... More

This course was close to my hotel and it was decent. It was pretty pricey, but it was actually the cheapest in the area. The course itself was pretty narrow. They require that you have a caddy, which we did not care for. Luckily the guy ended up being really nice, but we would have preferred to golf alone.

Recently completed a 12-day stay at the Jewel Runaway Bay resort and enjoyed six (6) rounds of golf during my visit. The course is very convenient to the resort property (a short cart ride that is prompt and efficient) which was great. My 9-year old son played with me as well. This is an excellent 'island' golf experience as the... More

Got to play 9 hole at the course. My caddy, Michael was great and very helpful with the course lay out and a few lessons. If you are renting clubs, $40, there are no balls or tee's included so for 3 balls and tees there was an extra $15 added on.

We are currently staying at the JRB hotel. My husband and teenage son used the golf course and loved it so much they have booked to go again on Friday. Their caddy Marcel was absolutely brilliant and they have asked for him again for their next round. He was so helpful and informative about the course. The course is challenging... More
