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

I am a beginner golfer and felt very comfortable golfing here. I had a great caddy, Michael. I learned a lot from him and never felt like I didn't belong there. Also, Janet, our beverage cart girl was amazing, she went off property just to find us bug spray!!!!!

This course is a perfect example of a course that could be great but missed the mark. The greens were sparse and inconsistent, the fairways were dry and hard and the general upkeep of the course was fair at best. The highlight was Alfonso, the caddy who provided great entertainment and service during the round and was very quick with... More

Nice golf course but the resort gives you the impression it is included in your resort package. Once you get there, you find out it is $40 for 9 holes and $80 for 18 to rent golf clubs, plus cart rental, plus mandatory golf caddy.

Dear guest, Green fees are complementary. Caddy is the only thing mandatory. If you are renting clubs they do come at a cost. Cart is not mandatory as you can walk the course. Scott More
