Love all the Jamaican caddies ..... course is a nice challenge. You are taxied to course by Albert or Carl in a long golf cart. A "chunnel" goes under the highway allows for easy access to course from resort. Prices are comparable to most courses in states.

The walk from the Jewel to the course, the lady calling for the cart to pick you up, the distance from the course, not having to make tee times, being able to leave your clubs there was all super. We four were all very experienced golfers in our 50's and played at 8:00 and were done in approximately 3 1/2... More

Nice course. Having caddies was a nice touch and worth the cost. Course was a little long for us (seniors). We recommend playing from the Senior tees.

We had the pleasure of having Deniston as our caddie and he more than made up for the okay golf course conditions. The course needs some attention although the greens were pretty good. I wish you could see and hear our caddie (Deniston) he was the BEST. He should be a caddie at White Witch.

My wife and I rented clubs and paid two mandatory caddie fees. However, we only had one caddie accompany us on the course. It was my wife's first time golfing and soon she was dropping her ball where I hit. We only completed seven holes as we were hot. Prior to our trip I referred to this website to determine... More

What an awesome golf experience. I stayed a the Jewel, so the golf was right across the street. Albert so courteous, would be the main driver to come and pick you up and bring you back. The staff at the course like Carl, Tracea, Latoya, Shelley, Philip, so many to mention make your golf experience one you will never forget.... More

Needs a little work but on the whole it was good. Free golf but you have to pay for a caddie and cart if you want one. And clubs are for rent if you don't bring your own.
