So what are the options in Jamaica? Let’s look at some of the best Jamaica golf resorts
If you are an avid golfer, then you might have heard of Half Moon for their exceptional golf course and golfing academy. But if you’ve heard about it for a different reason, it probably is its multiple types of accommodations, restaurants and bars.
Designed by world-renowned architect Robert Trent Jones, Sr. and opened in 1962 then renovated by Roger Rulewich, the reason it is included among the best in the world is quite obvious.
Whether you are travelling with a group of your avid golfing friends or business associates or, you are the only golfer in your family on vacation, you will still have a great time challenging one of Jamaica’s best, most renowned golf courses.
Your caddy will be a wealth of information both on golf and the historical grounds of the retired sugar estate you are playing on. And, if you are an amateur and would love to learn, the academy is run by a group of professionals ready and willing to help you improve your skill and love for the game.
If you are on the island during the Founder’s Cup tournament, then enter to not only have a beautiful day playing with like-minded golf fanatics but to contribute to the millions raised for charity each year.
The Sugar Mill Restaurant and 19th Hole are located on the golf course so, take a break for a quick snack and head back to your game as soon as possible.
As one of the resorts in the Luxury Included chain of Sandals resorts, Sandals Golf & Country Club offers more than just an all-inclusive vacation. Golf is just one of the many land and water activities provided by the resort, but they do have one of the most impressive golf courses on the island.
With sweeping views of the sea and mountain at 700 feet above the Caribbean Sea you’ll play on the greens with the most picturesque backgrounds. What’s even better, not only do Sandals Golf & country club guests get discounted golfing perks, as long as you are staying at a Sandals resort in Jamaica, you have access to the same.
There are even complimentary shuttles from the nearby Sandals Ochi and Royal Plantation. So while they themselves aren’t golfing resorts, technically they still count. Golfing lessons and caddies (which are mandatory) are available at an additional cost and golf clinics are hosted weekly.
Tryall Club is the epitome of a luxury vacation. With fully staffed private villas of varying sizes and views, there is no better way to spend your vacation unless you are a golfer. While there are countless other outdoor activities, including tennis and racquetball, the golf course is definitely something to behold.
The exquisite greens are the work of Ralph Plummer, an expert golf course designer with over 40 years of experience. So if your vacation takes you to Tryall Private Villas, or anywhere nearby, stop by and challenge the golf course and the trade winds on the north coast.
Newbies are welcome too, an instructor will be at your service to help you better your game.
Jewel Resorts Runaway Bay is that resort where you can go from the waterslide with your family to teeing off at the private 18-hole championship golf course.
Your prowess at the game will not be questioned. Whether you are a beginner or a seasoned golfer you’ll have an exciting time on Jewel’s golf course. Besides, where better to sharpen your golfing abilities than in the tropical paradise that is Jamaica?
Green fees are complimentary for guests of the Jewel Resort, which brings new meaning to luxury, all-inclusive resort.
And while these are not “Jamaican golfing resorts” per se, they are quite close to a golf course and some even have special rates for their guests as well:
...plus countless others
Just check with your resort for the nearest golf course to see what options are available.
