    Golf and Other Activities


    If Golf is your passion, welcome to the promised land
    Jamaicans have always taken our golf seriously. Inspired, quite likely, by the rich British heritage, accommodating weather and truly spectacular terrain.
    It’s all here, right now, awaiting your arrival, whether novice or experienced, from amateur to pro, golfing Jamaica has what you’re looking for in a great golf destination:
    Elevated tees and promontory greens with photo-opportunity views of the Caribbean.
    Lush, verdant fairway turf that gives woods and irons a comforting bite.
    Enough hills and valleys, blind holes and hazards to keep scratch players on their toes. And more than enough challenge to start the adrenaline pumping in the world’s top professionals.

    So bring your clubs to any one or two or three of our clubs, and experience a round of the good life.

    The Tryall Club
    Designed by Ralph Plummer in 1958 this has traditionally been regarded as the best course in Jamaica, perhaps one of the top courses in the Americas.
    The 6,221 yard par 72 course has hosted international tournaments such as the Johnnie Walker World Championships, the Mazda Champions, the Jamaica Classic and Shell's Wonderful World of Golf. The mixture of flat seaside holes and (sometimes severe!) slopes hold something for everyone.

    A huge 200 year old water wheel, dating back to Tryall's colonial plantation past, stands astride the 7th tee and still turns to this day. One of the special pleasures of a round at Tryall is a caddie slicing the top off a coconut to provide you with a refreshing drink of milk. Rubber spiked golf shoes are allowed on the Tryall golf course....NO metal spiked golf shoes.

    Half Moon
    The course at Half Moon is a classic Robert Trent Jones layout, following the contours of the flat lowlands between the hills and the sea. The two nines are laid end-to-end, ribbon-like, alongside each other, offering a 7,119 yard challenge whose signature hole is the 535 yard par-5 3rd.
    The design tempts the big-hitters to take a short cut over a deadly stand of trees or take the safer but longer route via the open fairway.
    Golf pro: Byron Bernard
    Rose Hall, Montego Bay · 876-953-2560

    Ironshore Golf & Country Club
    The Ironshore Golf & Country Club is a links-style, par-72 course that is open to all golfers. It’s a demanding course with plenty of doglegs and bunkers to challenge your A-game, but the reasonable rates make it the best value for golfers in Montego
    Ironshore, Montego Bay · 876-953-3681

    Cinnamon Hill at Rose Hall
    By the same architect who designed White Witch, Cinnamon Hill is another course that takes advantage of the varied terrain between mountain and seashore. Watch out for the tricky 8th, Chinaman's Reef, whose inspiration was Pebble Beach. The dogleg hugs the sea to a lonely green that perches over the crashing surf below. Heaven!
    The course was recently redesigned by Robert von Hagge, who also built the White Witch (see below).
    Golf pro: Gary Slatter
    At Rose Hall, Montego Bay · 876-953-2650

    The White Witch
    This new von Hagge course is named after Annie Palmer, a legendary local figure who was dubbed The White Witch for the havoc she made with local men folk in colonial times.
    The course is rapidly becoming a modern classic, earning accolades throughout the golfing world. It is filled with drama and delight and those who eschew carts in favor of walking may soon regret it after laboring up and down the 700-foot drop between hillside holes and the seaside.

    The double fairway on the 15th offers the same kind of choice as Half Moon's 3rd. Faint hearts take the safe route along the dogleg for a manageable 335 yd par 4. Yet who could resist the lure of a direct shot to the green, just 220 yards away across a lovely pond and waterfall? A birdie just waiting to be taken! It is easy to lose one's head - and ball - in the face of such an enticing prospect.
    The White Witch can be a demanding temptress indeed.
