course a little dry, but challenging

reasonable price, not very busy as it is so hot this time of year. Caddy service is mandatory, but was well worth it.

I had the pleasure of working with caddie Alphonso Rose, perhaps the best short game player ever from the Caribbean and certainly Jamaica. His repertoire of shots with a wedge is endless and equally remarkable. Course in decent shape, not great. Greens are brown in some areas, and areas of the course is parched, but all in all a great... More

We (threesome) golfed 3x during our stay in August. Each time we were the first off the tee in the am. The first round was on a Monday, and it was quite hot, but still very enjoyable. We played again on Wednesday and the greens had softened up a bit from a good rain the night before. The last round... More

Playing at the Golf Club at Jewel Runaway Bay was a nice addition to our stay at the Jewel. Don't expect a "country club quality" course, but it is very well-maintained. It's a tougher course than it looks, and our caddie (required if you play) was very helpful. Very cool to play golf with a view of the Caribbean Sea!... More

Super staff, part of the resort. It is all included in your stay so no green fees and tips are kind of frowned upon and totally your choice.

Played twice , once on 6/8 and again on 6/11. Course is preparing for the open in September so greens are rough after aeration. Played with caddies Clifford and Ian. Couldn't ask for better caddies! They know the course and how to coach. My son played with me and he is a newer golfer and Ian was the most patient... More

Went last week 6-12-13, it was very hot even in the early morning, Michael was a fantastic caddy, his tips and insightful knowledge will be retained for years to come.

visited 1st week of June, 2013. my buddy played the course twice. It’s fairly flat and free greens fees if you stay at Jewel Resort. Bring your own balls, glove, tees, and shoes or you will pay big $$$$. He rented clubs for $22-40 but said if he came back he’d pay the extra $ to bring his own clubs.... More
