We wanted to experience golfing with caddies. We had Frank and Shawna as our caddies and were happy with them. It was nice to learn a little about the culture/island while playing some golf. We walked 18 holes which was quite a workout. I can't comment too much on the quality of golf since I'm not an avid golfer. My... More

Dear guest, I do hope your enjoyed some of you play with us. I am sorry that you were not happy with our prices.

Loved the course, even better when it was free with our hotel. However the person who signed us in was quite rude to us. Golf balls (3) cost $22 (bring your own), tried on a glove to see if it would fit and the woman said I had to buy it (luckily it did fit). Also as previously said in... More

Lots of crabgrass on course but the course has come a long way from what it used to be. They continue to make a lot of improvements to the course every month. By this time next year it will be in better shape

A worthwhile experience, but the fairways are pretty much crabgrass and milkweed at this point. It was taken over by Jewel recently per the caddies and they say the ownership is starting to put some money into improving it. We were not staying at the Jewel Resorts where this is an included activity, so we paid $55/round, plus the mandatory... More

Golfer's paradise. Champion course. Excellent experienced caddies just waiting, no line up, free with resort guest room fee. Bring your clubs.

Loved that the course was right at the resort so no need for shuttles or prebooked tee times. We could go whenever we felt like it. A beautiful and forgiving course for hackers like us. Caddie paul was excellent

Having a caddy was a lot of fun and he provided us with a lot of useful information, but for a couple of average golfers, this was overpriced and we were under prepared. If you do plan on golfing, bring your own shoes/balls or this will cost you an extra $35/round ($13 for 3 top flite!); clubs are a bit... More

The course wasn't busy so it was easy to get on at 8:30 AM. Take some extra golf attire to leave behind for the caddies. Golf shoes, gofl bag, balls, gloves, shirts, etc. even clubs if you have some. They will really appreciate it. Tell them the Canadian guys that hit the horse with his drive on the 5 hole... More
