The Caribbean Islands are a golfer’s paradise. With great weather all year round, stunning scenery and some spectacular championship courses, golfers return here year after year.
As a golfer you are the luckiest of all sports enthusiasts visiting the Caribbean, no matter how well or indifferently you play. You can choose to swing your driver while enjoying the privilege of the most spectacular locations, the best of amenities, well-appointed clubhouses -- and even someone to carry your bags.
One of life’s greatest joys for the golfer is to travel in anticipation of the next great discovery; in the Caribbean once you look up from your swing, you will find a backdrop second to none. The scenery and settings of our courses will transport you from such mundane concerns as yardages and hazards, to a heaven-sent opportunity to brush up your backswing and hole the long putts.
Even those accustomed to the world's legendary golfing delights, from St Andrews to Augusta and Pebble Beach, will find themselves spoiled by the choices in the Caribbean, and the opportunity to play -- every day of the year -- championship courses attached to hotels, resort complexes and country clubs.
Here you can play in sunny weather, surrounded by beautiful scenery, on challenging courses etched into magnificent coastal landscapes. Beginners and accomplished golfers alike can have the thrill of a glorious adventure in a new world, and the opportunity to savour the day over exotic food and drink.
