Good course although a bit gnarly. Cost was "included" but after you rent clubs, cart, and tip the caddy it's close to $100.

Grab grass fairways, bumpy slow greens and not enough sand in traps make for blading a sand wedge with bounce a boggie disaster. The course has a good design layout but needs work. James

The course is ok and will be getting a face lift shortly. The greens need work but it didn't stop us from having fun and playing more than once. Caddies are wonderful.

The greens are slow and you will find a very old thick bladed grass in the fairways. Money needs to be spent on it. If you want a great golfing experience take an hour trip to Montego bay and place White Witch....wow!!! Get a cabby...More

Yes they are an older titliest model but still in good condition. You do have to hire a caddy though and the total come to 60 dollars. It's an enjoyable course to play. Hope this helps Brian

Are the balls provided when you rent clubs or do you need to buy them separately too?

Response from MichaelandMaria | Reviewed this property |
Balls are NOT included and quite expensive at the course. Bring them with you or buy before you get to the golf course.
