Just played the runaway golf course today and I must say that it was quite disappointing! The course layout was decent, but the course conditions were terrible; rock hard brown crab grass fairways with weeds growing everywhere and slow, bumpy greens. For some holes, I could not even tee the ball because the ground was so hard like concrete. Golf... More

My husband did the golfing, as I has gotten a little too much sun. But after his experience, we both knew we needed to write a review of the course. My husband got to the course shortly before close. After hearing as much, he expected to be turned away, and rightfully so. But no, the attendants response? "There is no... More

Firstly, the caddies make the experience...listen to your caddy mon. The course is long and challenging, especially with the wind usually a factor. The greens are small but fair...you get a good roll. Only the greens are watered-so tho the course looks brown when dry, it actually plays easier because you get more roll. Don't expect a top notch PGA... More

Fairly nice golf course with enough long par 4's to make a golfer out of you. Some easy, some hard, some in between. Problem right now is rainy season hasn't kicked in and tees, greens and everything in between is hard as concrete. Took me a few holes to use less club and let it bounce in. If you hit... More

Played the course twice during my just completed stay at the Dunn's River Falls Resort. The greens fee was included in the price of the resort (An all inclusive), however, you are mandated to take a caddy. Carts are optional, so for two people with a cart the cost was $60.00, which I did not think was unreasonable. The blue... More

Good facilities. Overall the grounds were not as picturesque as we hoped, but adequate for playing the game. Caddy Bill was most helpful. My husband played nearly every day during our two week stay. Good value at Jewel Runaway Bay with golf green fees included. Caddy and card mandatory at reasonable prices.
