Take a moment to learn about these golf courses as you plan the trip of a lifetime. And since there is no need to plan your trip around the weather, it is possible to Golf on Grand Cayman during any month of the year.
North Sound Club
This 18-hole, par 71 course offers mornings and afternoons of fun for beginner and seasoned golfers alike. The five sets of tee boxes engage novices, while the strong and often temperamental Caribbean winds pose challenges to golfers with years of experience. Perhaps the best spot at this popular golf club is Hole 11, which allows you to play into the wind while the awe-inspiring North Sound shines behind you. This sea-framed hole also requires making a cannon shot over the pond so you don’t get saddled with a double bogey.
There’s water on 15 of the 18 holes, iguanas of assorted sizes sunning themselves all over the green, and plenty of native greenery including coconut palms, mahogany trees, and silver thatch. Two putting greens are also found here.
The Ritz-Carlton Golf Club
You’ll play nine holes on this Greg Norman-designed golf course that also includes an 80-course indoor golf simulator measuring the impact and the flight pattern of each ball. Like the above golf club, this option offers gorgeous views of the awesome North Sound and features steady wind that makes at least five of the holes a bit challenging. Eight of the nine holes include water to further challenge your golf game. Those who have been to this golf course recommend “tagging along” even if you do not play golf to enjoy the spectacular views.
Britannia Golf Course
Another 18-hole course, Britannia is par 57 and was designed by the legendary Jack Nicklaus. Each hole offers a unique challenge, and while this course is not as popular as the other two, it is still affordable and features sea views. There are also plenty of iguanas busy sunning themselves as you shout, “Fore!”
