Owner description: Cayman's only 18-hole Championship Golf Course
Reviewed December 30, 2012

To put this golf course into perspective for you, imagine a $20 golf course anywhere in the United States and you have the North Sound Club. The club house is a dump, and the greens are almost completely brown. If you want to eat anything, you have to wait 2 hours for a sandwich delivery as the club orders it from a restaurant off the grounds. And to have to pay $159 for 18 holes here, as well as $50 dollars to rent old nike clubs, is a complete ripoff.

The course was in poor condition, with large brown spots in grass. Wind was high, too. The course is exceptionally expensive. For two, with club rentals, for 18 holes the cost was $465 USD. For that you get year-old Nike clubs (in nice shape), a worn out golf cart without any GPS technology, a handful of tees and access to a course for which, were it a muni, the greenskeeper would be looking for work. There was no beverage cart out, but a small cooler with ice was provided. To be fair, we enjoyed seeing all the iguanas on the course, and there were only a handful of other golfers seen all day. There is only one hole on the ocean, so that is not even a selling point. We finished our round and wanted to enjoy a Bloody Mary at a nice little outdoor patio bar there, but they didn't have tomato juice. Not a lot going for it, in all honesty.

Played North Sound Golf Club on December 12th, $50 rental set of clubs (about average cost anywhere), $159/person to play (kind of pricey, but hey I'm on vacation!). Course was in very good shape and there was very little wind the day we played. Threesome from the cruise line. Iguanas were plentiful as were the birdies. Our group (Threesome from the cruise line) was basically the only group on the course. The course is challenging with plenty of hazards to get into if you don't drive it straight. Greens were exceptional but a bit slow rolling about 8 or 9. Two of our group shot even par on the back nine, including 5 of the 6 birdies we had in the group. Best hole is Number 11, 215 yard par 3 straight that borders the ocean, very beautiful!!! Staff in the clubhouse, at the bar, on the range, all were very nice and accommodating. As we were finishing the 18th hole, they had already called the shuttle company to come pick up our group yet we still had time to have a beer and enjoy some time with the staff at the bar. I would certainly do this again!!!

There are only 2 golf courses that are open to the public on the island. The 3rd one in between these two courses are with the Ritz. We were practicing at the driving range prior to our time, meeting up with the staff who help us pull out clubs out. Staff name Roland, immediately ask for $ tips for himself from us. We were shock and surprise and ask him what service did he do for us to deserve us to give him a tip? He stated that "i only clean the clubs here".
Then, when time came for our game, one of the staff told us that we could pay for the game afterwards and had brought us all the supplies we needed it. There are 2 of us but only provided us 1 set of club, then later proceed to tell them that their "pro" was upset that we didn't pay and Roland was "smoothing things out". We went to the office and clear things out immediately! And as out game was interrupted.
We finished the 9 holes otherwise, course itself is "OK". It is too closed to travel. Only plus is that it is sunny and beautiful island weather. Would not return again ask the staff is not professional did have have a pleasant experience with Roland.
