Jamaica golf vacations take you to one of the world's premier golfing regions. This is a small island, but it boasts of championship courses, challenging layouts, and gorgeous scenery for outdoor activities such as golf. With no winter and even rains that are warm, Jamaica golf vacations are a great idea year-round.

Whether staying at Jamaica private villas, beach resorts, hotels, rented houses, or inns, golf courses are probably nearby. With professionally-designed layouts, such renowned playing sites as Wyndham at Montego Bay host famous competitions. In fact, Montego Bay has at least four championship courses, including Half Moon Golf, Tennis & Beach Club with its uniquely-shaped greens.

Ideal Jamaica Golf Vacations

Jamaica is a great destination for family vacations, and the proximity of golf courses to all types of accommodations makes getting in a round of golf convenient for family members. Even though resorts and golf fairways are usually close to one another, some resorts make it super convenient--and economical--by maintaining their own courses. Sandals, for instance, has a course in a gorgeous setting at Ocho Rios, and guests play for free.

Jamaica provides the best, most challenging golfing in the West Indies. The centuries of British presence no doubt fostered interest in the game, and the spectacular shoreline and rolling landscape encouraged fabulous layouts. Today, Caribbean cruises have Jamaican ports as primary stops, but for those who want to spend leisure time on the island, Jamaica golf vacations are ideal.
