Jamaica Golf Resorts
I have to admit that I am not a golfer. Don't get me wrong, I own clubs and I have even taken lessons at an international golf course in Colorado...but I repeat I am not a golfer.
The courses I talk about here are ones that I have heard great things about or ones that have particularly caught my attention. Such as the "white witch" (Wyndham Rose Hall in Montego Bay).
The White Witch of Rose Hall is one of Jamaica's famous legends. There was a wicked 19th-century mistress of a 4,000-acre sugar plantation who abused her slaves and killed three husbands. Locals are quick to say that Annee Palmer still haunts the Rose Hall Great House and the estate grounds, including the two new golf courses built there. And maybe she does. Golfers are already blaming her for lost balls and wayward putts.
From what I understand the White Witch Course is not the traditional tropical terrain that you might expect but instead it's mountainous and rugged.
It was designed by the international architectural team of Robert Von Hagge, Rick Baril and Mike Smelek, opened in August 2000.

- Built on former sugar plantation, Tryall was once an LPGA Tour stop and host of the prestigious Johnnie Walker World Championship. Designed by Texas architect, Ralph Plummer, the course plays 6,720 from the tips with a Par of 71.
The course has undergone several recent renovations and is in top form, and has come highly recommended from a few of my very close friends. Real golfers!
Reservations are required for a tee time and the price is about $125 for a round of 18 holes.
