About
Situated on the historic 4,000 acre Rose Hall Estate, and sited on 200 acres of lush greenery and rolling countryside, The White Witch Golf Course is carved from the rolling countryside of Jamaica’s historic Rose Hall Plantation and is an 18-hole championship golf course designed by Robert von Hagge and Rick Baril. This 6,758-yard, Par 71 treasure is named for the plantation’s beautiful but wicked 19th century plantation mistress, Annee Palmer. Legend has it that Annee’s ghost still haunts the estate, creating an alluring mystique that has fascinated island natives and visitors for generations. Winner of the "Jamaica's Best Golf Course" award at the 2015 World Golf Awards, also rated as the #1 Golf Course and #1 in Golf Shop Staff service by Conde Nast Traveler. The White Witch is considered one of the finest golf courses in the Caribbean, characterized by mountainous terrain, cool trade winds, colorful foliage and spectacular ocean views from 16 of its 18 holes.

If you have the chance dont miss out on this scenic treasure. So many holes overlooking the sea. I would hve given 5 stars but a couple of greens were a little rough. Our caddies were friendly and very knowledeable. I had my golf buddy with me and the caddy was eiter spot on with yardage or maybe a couple or 3 yards off.

For this to be a championship course it was by far one of the worst courses I’ve played. I have played many championship courses around the world and this gets a 3 out of 10. The only reason for the 3 was the experience caddie, pro shop customer service and magnificent views.

You couldn’t roll a ball on the greens at all even if rolled with my hand. Greens were muddy yes I said “Muddy Greens!l” The greens were also spotty, patchy and damn look like someone tried to scrap the grass off the greens. I should have taken pictures.

Anyway, played Feb 4, 2024. This course needs a lot of maintenance. I was told afterwards that I should have played Tryall or Cinnamon.

Don’t waste you money on this course even if they offered a discount which was still over $100 US dollars.

Real treat for a caddy we had today! Her name is Diane...she was so attentive and professional. We have enjoyed many caddies at courses in the carribean...but she was the best with yardage and club selection we have ever had! Really enjoyed our game with her!

Fun, challenging course with lots of inclines and fantastic views. We played two rounds and had great caddies both times (Rocky, then Kendra. Thanks!) My wife and I aren’t great golfers and enjoyed the fact that the course was pretty quiet. We didn’t need to speed through. Greens on the front 9 were a little patchy but it didn’t take away from the experience.

Played here twice in the last week of February. Course was absolutely gorgeous and wish my caddie Erica was able to join me every round of my life as she was entertaining, knowledgeable, helpful, professional and just an all around awesome human being. Thanks so much Erica YOU'RE THE BEST!!!!!!!

DO NOT PLAY!! White witch golf course is a great layout but the greens are not playable. They are mud! And that is not a joke. Don’t waste your time booking there. Even if they let you play for free it’s not worth it. Go play Cinnamon Hill or Tryall.

Great day of golf. Very friendly staff. Required caddies were very valuable in helping keep us in play and finding the balls when they went out. Particularly enjoyed Shawnee. The course reopened about two months ago (closed for Covid). Some of the greens are rough but very playable. Definitely recommend playing if only for the absolutely stunning views on nearly ever hole.

Had the pleasure of playing this amazing course on March 6th, and with the help of my great caddie Patrick. Very knowledgeable about the course, and has a wonderful personality. The course itself has some of most stunning views I have ever seen. The changes in elevations are crazy!!!, a definite must play course when in Jamaica. The Pro Shop staff so friendly and helpful!!

A special thank you to Keith, for setting up the tee times.

The greens are dead. Not a chance to putt. They need to close the course for months and re-grass. Bunkers are not much better. Fairways muddy and not good.
Views were beautiful and staff were friendly. Amazing facility completely fallen into ruin. So sad.

Great course, but check first! I received information from a local tour company, that the White Witch course is (temporarily) closed due to the sale of the Ritz Carlton nearby. The RC is supposed to be re-branded, and re-opened by the 2013/2014 Winter Season. JH
