Throughout the Caribbean, you’ll find some of the best golf courses on the planet.
It might be costlier to stay at Caribbean destinations and play some of the region’s top courses, but if you’re serious about golf, these are experiences that you should be entitled to.
Here are six of the best golf courses in the Caribbean that you’ll undoubtedly want to consider playing.
1. Dominican Republic: Teeth of the Dog Golf Course, Casa de Campo
If you decide to visit some of the best golf courses in the Caribbean, you might want to upgrade your golf cart with a new rear seat and other modifications and accessories so that you can fully enjoy getting around the exotic courses in luxury and style.
One course you don’t want to miss is Casa De Campo’s Teeth of the Dog course in the Dominican Republic. It’s widely regarded as the number one golf course in the Caribbean.
Seven of the holes are played right next to the Caribbean shoreline, including three parts that require a carry across the ocean waves, where sharp coral formations stick out from the water; which is why the course is called “Teeth of the Dog.”
Designed by renowned golf course designer Pete Dye, this 7,350-yard course should be on any golfer’s bucket list.
2. Barbados: Royal Westmoreland
Located in beautiful Barbados, the Royal Westmoreland golf course is undoubtedly one of the most stunning courses in all of the Caribbean.
Golfers are greeted with spectacular views of the sea and the dramatic changes in the course’s elevation make it a unique challenge to play.
Designed by Robert Trent Jones Junior, golfers must navigate deep ravines and other challenging terrain to get their balls onto the greens.
3. Bermuda: Mid Ocean Club
Along with Charles Blair Macdonald, Robert Trent Jones also designed the amazing course at the Mid Ocean Club in Bermuda.
Since it opened in the 1920s, the course has consistently been at the forefront of best Caribbean golf courses.
The greens that feature severe runoffs are particularly challenging, but golfers are sure to have fun trying to navigate them.
4. Jamaica: Cinnamon Hill
Many people regard Cinnamon Hill as the premier golfing destination in Jamaica.
Set in an incredible natural landscape, it can be challenging for golfers to handle the strong winds that often blow across the course. If you don’t have the right combination of power and guile, you could easily lose your ball to the bunkers.
5. Dominican Republic: Corales Golf Club
Corales Golf Club in the Dominican Republic may not have been open long – it was launched in 2010 – but it has fast become one of the leading courses in the Caribbean.
In fact, it was the first course in the Dominican Republic to host a PGA Tour event, which it did in 2018.
The course’s immaculate condition and incredible design is a joy to play. Many of the fairways run alongside the stunning coastline.
6. Barbados: Green Monkey, Sandy Lane Resort
Carved out of an old quarry, the greens and fairways of the Green Monkey golf course at the Sandy Lane Resort in Barbados are unlike those of any other course.
Golfers will be faced with performing shots along fairways and greens that are often lined by sheer cliff faces, making a round of golf a rather dramatic experience.
The course’s signature hole features sand surrounded by grass that has been sculpted into the shape of a Bajan Green Monkey, which is native to Barbados. Obviously, it is that hole that gives the Sandy Lane Resort’s course its distinctive name.
