Owner description: Famed Canadian Acrhitch Thomas McBroom has skillfully remodeled Royal St. Kitts Golf Club to provide breathtaking views of the natural terrain. The course boasts spectacular and picturesque holes which border the black sandy beaches of the Atlantic Ocean and stretch to the calm waters of the Caribbean Sea. The "links" -style golf course has five par 3s with three full holes on the Atlantic, and two full holes on the Caribbean Sea. The golf course is spread over 125 acres of irrigated lush seashore paspalum, and advanced hybrid turf grass, specifically designed to tolerate the salty ocean spray. Displaying a moderate number of sand bunkers (83 total) and 12 beautiful lakes on the course, wide fairways, and large putting greens, it is a fair, yet challenging test of golf. Four sets of tee complexes allow golfers of all skill levels to enjoy the challenge posed by this magnificant layout. The finishing hole returns golfers to the "country club" -style clubhouse featuring a full-service golf shop, locker rooms, and clubhouse grille. Enjoy this challenging 18-hole, par 71 layout year-round. Take in the sights of aquamarine surf, black sand beaches, and the local wildlife including egrets, lizards, and green tail monkeys that occupy the surrounding landscape. The Royal St. Kitts Golf Club is sure to test your skills, while stimulating all your senses during a golf experience you will never forget.

“Unique & memorable golfing experience”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 17, 2013

This was my first experience playing golf in the caribbean and what an experience. The friendly welcome of the staff starts the day just great, as well as during the day on the course for beverages and food if needed. And afterwards took care of my return to the ship when it was time by calling a cab. The layout is just awesome with the back 9 have the sublime ocean views and the condition of the course is just "WOW". I definitely recommend playing here and if I ever go back will indeed play a round. Thanks for the awesome experience Royal St. Kitts.

“Fantastic Views”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 20, 2013

The course has some fab views - esp the ones from 14 to 17th which have the caribbean sea hugging the fairway. Most of the course is level that makes the play much easy. The wind is steady and strong challenging your game all the time. A good place to hone your skills.

“Three great rounds ...”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 8, 2013 via mobile

During our week at the Marriott we played the course three times, and really enjoyed it. The front nine offers a glimpse of the Caribbean, while the back 9 is spectacular. The 15th, a par 3 with an elevated tee box, and strong winds coming off the ocean, is particularly nice. The course was in great shape, and has a nice laid-back vibe. If you are a golfer and vacationing on St. Kitts, do not miss.

“Great time, great pro!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 3, 2013

My son and I booked 18 holes, 9 golfing with Joel the head pro. Joel gave us great instruction on all aspects of golf and he was fun to golf with. We got rained out after 9 and they gave us a rain check for the back 9 the next day. The front 9 is good, the back 9 is great! awesome holes along the ocean. The course has very well placed bunkers to make it challenging, I think I spent more time "on the beach" here than I did on the rest of the island. The wind from the Atlantic adds to the challenge. I would love to golf this course again and I'll give a special shout out to Joel if you are looking for any lessons. I rented clubs and they were a nice set of new or fairly new set of Taylor Mades.

“Excellent”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 1, 2013

Suggest any golfer to play this course. The greens were great and the back nine was beautiful. If you stay at the Marriott you get a discount.
