We only golfed 9 holes. We were spoiled last year by golfing in Exuma, not nearly the sights here. Also, drinks were included at our last golf course. We had to pay $5 a beer at this location & were only given a bottle of water each. My husband enjoyed himself though. He had a great caddy named Ruddy. He... More

My husband and I were very excited to be able to golf in Jamaica. As a part of our resort package, we required a mandatory caddy. The trip would have been great except our caddy was very frustrating. He critiqued every swing I made even when we told him we didn't need the help. I signed up for a round... More

My husband and I set aside a few mornings each vacation to play -- the course is beautiful although there are no ocean views. And as long as you bring your own clubs, the price is good-- the green fees are included if you are a Sandals guest and $20-30 for a cart and $25 for a caddy is such... More

The course was challenging and made you test your true inner golfer. The caddies are so nice and knowledgeable, I learned some tips on regarding my swing and now back at home am a better golfer..I wish it was close to a water view but that being said very enjoyable. You are taken to the course on a Sandals bus... More

Well maintained course. Very hilly but wide forgiving fairways. Very little water which really does not come into play unless you hit a really bad shot. Greens are very consistent but slow by US standards. I enjoyed playing the course very much. The caddies are great, not required but I walked with my caddie and he was a good companion.

My son and I just returned from playing 5 rounds while staying at Beaches in Ocho Rios. The course was in great condition for a resort course from tee to green. Some very challenging holes on both sides of the course. My son attended a free golf clinic and received some fantastic advice from teaching pro Bill, who spent a... More

I am not a golfer but had a delicious 5-course dinner that was hosted here. The setting was absolutely beautiful and the Club is very well managed in true Sandals style.

I have been playing this course for 10 consecutive years. Best condition ever! Caddies are knowledgeable ... Be sure to take a picture from the tips on 11 on a clear day!

Course was fabulous and the caddies are great. We had one named Morvin but they called him Buddy. He was funny and knew a lot about golf. I would recommend him to anyone who wants to golf and have a fun time.
