The Best Golf Courses in The Caribbean

With lush greens rising above white sand beaches, the Caribbean is a golfing hotspot, but with so many courses to choose from deciding where to play can be more challenging that the course itself. Here we look at some of the best golf courses in the Caribbean.

Cedar Valley Golf Club – Antigua

One of the Caribbean’s finest golf courses Cedar Valley enjoys an illustrious reputation. This 18 hole, par 70, PGA rated course is set amongst tropical greenery and enjoys panoramic views of the Caribbean Sea.

First opened in 1977 the course offers an array of facilities including a club house with café, bar and restaurant, pro shop, cart rentals, equipment hire, 300 yard driving range and private tuition.

Stay at:
The luxurious Blue Waters resort. Located just 3 miles from the course Blue Waters is a family run property featuring luxury villas and suites, a decadent spa, five star service and a beachside location.

Trump International Golf Club – The Grenadines
Designed by the legendary Jim Fazio and bearing the name of one of the worlds most powerful businessmen The Trump International golf club has all the attributes to be one of the world’s best golf courses… and it doesn’t disappoint.

With 18 holes and a par of 72 the course is challenging enough to be enjoyed by even the most ardent golfer, yet can still be tamed by newcomers looking to enjoy a spot of holiday golf between cocktails.

Punta Espada Golf Club – The Dominican Republic
Ranked by Golf Week as the finest golf course in the Caribbean Punta Espada has been a “must play” course since it first opened in 2006.

The course, designed by Jack Nicklaus, hosted the first ever PGA Champions tour in 2008 and offers a par of 72. With breathtaking vistas from all points of the course, ample water hazards and numerous “risk and reward” holes it’s easy to see why Punta Espada is such a firm favourite amongst the golfing elite.

Royal Westmoreland – Barbados
Opened in 1995 by HRH Prince Andrew and designed by world famous architect Robert Trent Jones Junior, Royal Westmoreland is often described as the purest golf course in the Caribbean. Indeed the architect himself described it as the purest and most rewarding course he had ever created, some praise considering his credentials.

This 7,045 Yard, par 72 course takes advantage of its natural surroundings with challenging bunkers and lush greens combined with intricate holes such as the famous 6th, a 327 yard elevated dog leg surrounded on 3 sides by quarry walls, a test for even the finest golfer.
