Due largely to the Cayman Islands’ yearlong summery climate, ideal for golfing, and the world-class facilities that are available to players, golf is a popular activity for residents and visitors alike.
There are two golf courses on-Island, a nine-hole and an eighteen-hole. At both you can rent equipment, improve your swing with a lesson from the resident pro and take advantage of cheaper twilight rates. Water features and trade winds present exciting challenges for players of all skill sets on the respective courses and it’s not unusual to share your teeing ground with a sunbathing iguana! Various package rates and memberships are available to residents and visitors, and there are also deals which extend to family members.
North Sound Club is an 18-hole course with a driving range and two putting greens. The par-71, 6,605 yard course has a USGA course rating of 73.1. The Caribbean trade winds blowing in from the North Sound amplify the challenging nature of this course, with water featuring on 15 of the 18 holes. Their signature hole, #11, is a long par-3 and is particularly popular for those looking to capture a snapshot of their swing against the picturesque backdrop of the North Sound. Enjoy the vistas and a cool beverage at the open air bar afterwards.
The The Ritz-Carlton Golf Course offers nine-holes on the Greg Norman designed golf course. With fairways and greens meandering around canals, players are challenged with five long par fours against a steady wind. You can also try their indoor golf simulator that precisely measures impact and ball flight pattern. Choose from 80 virtual courses to play.
Both golf courses offer cheaper twilight rates, so enjoy a round of golf with a drink in hand as the sun sets.
