Things to Do :: Golfing and Golf Courses in jamaica

Vacationing in Jamaica? Find excellent championship courses to play golf in Jamaica especially in the resort towns of Montego Bay, Ocho Rios and Kingston. Jamaica Golf Association

 

golfing in jamaicaWith more championship courses to swing away at than in any other Caribbean destination, golfers will find layouts challenging enough to make even Tiger Woods determined. Jamaica is at the top of the leader board among Caribbean islands for courses that not only provide a true test of the game, but are picturesque as well. Let's just say that scenic drives are not limited to the coastal highways. Some holes may be bedeviling, but views from the hills and valleys are heavenly - definitely worth the price of the green fees.

How good a test is the golf? The elite in the golf world (PGA, LPGA and PGA Senior tours) have made regular stops. Noted golf-course designers like Robert Trent Jones Sr. have created premier layouts that fit any game, from scratch to high handicapper. Even if you occasionally have trouble getting your shot airborne, you can learn how to play the game on your all inclusive golf vacation.

With so many things to see and do in Jamaica, you can play a round of golf in the morning and be back in time for an enjoyable afternoon sunset cruise or a visit to a historic Great House. And even if golf isn't a family affair, mom and the children can bask on the beach or shop while dad tees off.

Golf on the island is convenient and there are golf resorts that offers everything you need and is accessible. Four championship courses near the sea are practically within a wedge shot of each other. Ironshore Golf & Country Club, Half Moon Golf, Tennis & Beach Club and Wyndam Rose Hall Country Club are in the same vicinity , east of Montego Bay. Golfers now can tee off at the new 6,8000-yard White Witch Golf Course at the Ritz Carlton Rose Hall. Carved out of 4,000 acres of the foothills and countryside of Rose Hall, the Robert von Hagge design is both breathtaking and challenging. Named after Annie Palmer, the bewitching sorceress of Rose Hall, the course has 16 of 18 holes overlooking the sea, definitely a blessing and not a curse.

Want tradition? Courses have that too. Tee off near a historic water wheel on the he site of a former sugar plantation at Tryall Golf, Tennis & Beach Resort, west of MoBay, where the best of the world's professionals have tested their skills. Or play at the Manchester Country Club in Mandeville, built more than 100 years ago not long after the game was invented in Scotland.

You still may see a startling sight at some Jamaican courses, made famous by a caddy at Tryall Golf Club, where caddies carry golf bags on their heads. A word of advice; use their head more than yours. Caddies know the layout and can impart local knowledge. At most courses, hiring a caddy is required. Carts are available at most courses, allowing you to ride while your caddy walks. The privilege of having a caddy is rarely available to golfers playing U.S. Courses.

Green fees may vary during the seasons but generally range from US$15-125. Fees are subject to change without notice. Clubhouse privileges are available. Serious golfers may want to bring their own sticks, but you can rent top-name clubs like Calloway and Taylor Made, from about US$12-$35 per round. Using a caddy costs from US$10-$18 per round (18 holes). Rental carts range up to US$40. It's advisable to bring several sleeves of golf balls; buying them in Jamaica's pro shops will be costly.

 

If you begin to feel like explorers Lewis and Clark because you can't keep the ball in the fairway, golf lessons are available from resident professionals at most of Jamaica's courses. From beginner's to advanced, teaching is available for half-hour, hour and extended sessions.

Want to really fine tune your swing? Or get p an down from the he bunker more often? Not a problem. In-depth instruction is available at Half Moon Golf, Tennis & Golf Club through the noted David Lead-better Golf Academy. Options include video and computer analysis of your swing. Instruction on your short game (putting, chipping, bunker play) is also provided at the academy created by teaching guru Ledbetter.

Jamaica is the perfect venue for multi-option golf packages. All-inclusive may include golf green fees in their package. Accommodations offer a wide range of activities in addition to golf and meals. Remember that Jamaica is the "land of wood and water" but your job is to land the ball on the green. Go ahead, tee it high and let it fly.
