What you Can Expect on your Jamaica Golf Vacation

By: Dottson Bando

With gorgeous weather and spectacular scenery, Jamaica golf is the perfect relaxing activity while on vacation. Although there are only twelve courses to choose from, there is a wide variety to keep you entertained. Each course has its own character and distinctive qualities allowing you to experience something different every time you play.

Despite there being just twelve courses in the country of Jamaica, there is a wide range of experience level. Whether you are a beginner or an experienced golfer, there is a course for every level of player. No doubt about it, you'll be able to enjoy the links at your experience level.

One of Jamaica's top golf courses for experienced golfers is The Tryall Club. Tryall is located just an hour west of Montego Bay, which is the perfect location for tourists looking for a challenge. This resort is a collection of upscale homes by North Americans and Europeans, giving it an up-scale feel. A visit to the course can be arranged through hotel concierges although it is a private resort area.

If you are a beginner and are looking to have a good time, the hub of Negril's all-inclusive resorts is one of the most popular courses. Being a beginner, you can fit right in at Negril Hills Golf Club as most of the golfers are first timers or golfers that go no more than a couple of times a year. And the location gives you a rare and novel experience as you travel up and down the elevated trees to the valley fairways.

Head out to Sandals Golf and Country Club if you're looking for a little less upscale but equally challenging course as The Tryall Club. In fact, some of the best golf in Jamaica can be found here. Although it was in rough shape just a few years ago, Sandals was recently purchased and has been completely revamped.

If you want to get a taste of history while visiting Jamaica, Manchester Country Club is the Caribbean's oldest golf course. It's a wonderful course located in Mandeville on Jamaica's south coast... and it's a remarkable golfing experience you wouldn't want to miss. In addition, it is over 2,000 feet above sea level... and is set in rolling hills and provides gorgeous scenery.

Jamaica golf is a popular activity among tourists and natives. There is something for everyone... although there are only twelve courses. With gorgeous scenery, courses of all degrees of difficulty, and a chance to relax and enjoy your time under the sun, Jamaica golf is an activity you do not want to miss out on while vacationing.
