...and we didn't. Despite the sign claiming it was open, this looked like a ghost course until we glimpsed a distant golf cart rattling around among the cacti. Whether or not you're golfers, make the trip out here to view the wild goats, the giant windmills, and the only dirt road roundabout (amazingly "landscaped"!) that I've ever seen. A surreal... More

What a challenging golf course. One par 3 I had to aim almost 100 yards to the left such a fun shot to be faced with. Great day out with friends from the cruise ship. Staff were friendly and the crew discount was excellent.

We rented a car and took the adventurous route to the Aruba Golf Club. If you are looking for a traditional round of golf-this is not for you. For $60 , you and a playing with partner get a beat up golf cart, some less than mint golf clubs and have the experience of playing on a course with no... More

We had to carry artificial turf mats around and drop the ball on it to hit a shot. The greens were cinders raked very fine if I recall. Not grass. Awesome time, never will find another course experience quite like this but dont expect a traditional round of golf

As the reviews point out, if your golf snob, don't come here, come to experience something different, rough ground astro mat, goats, cactus, rocks oil/sand greens/browns or whatever. $25 a steal. i was only person on the course. Its simply different, historic and has to be sampled. My clubs survived.

I loved the staff not to mention the beautiful surroundings, my husband and I renewed out wedding vows on the beach near by as it was a surprise to me, the golf staff helped him find a preacher to do the job and helped him with the things necessary that most men dont think of. WHAT A SUNSET, LOVELY TIME!!

Gosh it had to 25 years ago that my Dad and I played here. When there were no other choices on the island, the 18 hole course yet to be in existance, we gave it a try. Despite it not being a normal game of golf by any stretch of imagination we got to not only whack the ball around,... More

The Aruba Golf Club was at its height in the 50's and early 60's when Lago Refinery was in full operation, and many of the hundreds of foreign staff employees were members. Aruba is a desert island, with water scarce, so the little grass on the fairways (one of the other reviews mentions astro-turf - never happened!) at the time... More

If you don't take golf too serious and want something more than mini golf but something less than championship golf, the Aruba Golf Club is for you. We had a great time and played the course three times during our 3 week stay. But it's not for everyone. There are no water traps, no manicured greens and no overwatered fairways.... More
