Played 18 this week. Staff was great. Course was quite and beautiful. Multiple sets of tees, not overly challenging from the back tees but good shots required. Pricey, but as expected.

I've been playing golf longer than I care to remember and at courses around the world I do care to remember. Among golf architects, Pete Dye has always been my favourite, although I know others who abhor his signature railroad ties and the difficulty of...More

The Old Quarry Golf Course is hyped up as being the best in the Caribbean. It is, clearly, a fine golf course. The club house is spectacular and views are amazing. We played it in the “slow season” and the course wasn’t in “Tip Top...More

I hate to play alone, but could not miss the only time I had off and enjoy this course, which is the best one on the island. I had the third eagle of my career.

First time playing golf on an actual course. Never thought golfing would be so great. The views on this course were fabulous. Some very challinging holes.

Cruising into Curacao and I want to Golf Old Quarry (1 Replies)
We're cruising into Curacao and we want to golf at Old Quarry Golf course at Santa Barbara resort. The cruiseline isn't offering it due the the 2pm arrival time. How long does it take to get there? Are there taxis at the port? What does it cost?

It's probably a 45 minute drive to get there not counting how long it take to get a cab. Getting a cab for the return trip from the golf course will definitely take longer since they don't hang around there. It is a nice course and never crowded. No waiting for players holding things up and tee times are usually readily available.
