I played one round of golf, that was “included”. The greens were in poor shape. You had to pay for a caddy, and a golf cart. So, in total, I spent $100 to golf a bad golf course.

Great place to golf with very fun and friendly caddies. If you've never golfed in Jamaica the grass is very course and thick as the same with the greens. But don't get me wrong this course is very nice!!! Caddies know the greens inside and...More

Our caddie, Ken, was really the only reason this received more than 2 stars. He was excellent, funny, and even cracked a Heineken during the middle of our round! He knew the course very well and exceeded our expectations. I live in Minnesota, so my...More

Not a very good golf course by means of condition. Terrible greens. Friendly caddies and service but conditions of the course isn't worth paying 100.00 US for a cow pasture.

Yes they are an older titliest model but still in good condition. You do have to hire a caddy though and the total come to 60 dollars. It's an enjoyable course to play. Hope this helps Brian
