This was our 7th trip to Jamaica and we golf here every time, and not just one round! We generally try to go in the morning as it can get pretty warm out there. Usually there is a breeze to help. If you plan on doing more than one round, then it's worth your while to bring your own gear,... More

We had dinner here at no charge it was absolutely wonderful. We had a free 5 course meal the steak was the best I've ever eaten. We will be going next year again it would be worth it to pay out of your pocket.

The course was just okay IMO. Greens were in okay condition and fairways were weedy. My caddie was not to happy the entire time so that made my experience a bit less enjoyable.

This course is sneaky long. The white tees are only 6450 yards but there are many par 4s measuring well over 400, especially on the front. The rough is long so advantage is to the straight hitter. Not a lot of trouble otherwise so you won't lose a lot of balls. The greens are small and tricky so trust your... More

We had the pleasure of having dinner at the golf course during our stay. It was a nice departure from the great options available at the resort and I must say the food was incredible. My wife had fish and she said it could not have been prepared and displayed any better. I had the filet, and it was one... More

This was a little too pricy for what I ended up getting. I enjoyed my caddy and had a great time riding with him, but the course had some pretty tough grass throughout, there wasn't much or any differentiation between fairway and rough. I like that I can say I played while on the island, but I wish that for... More
