Fun course to play---BUT

DO NOT pay rack rate to play this course. Use TeeOff or similar sites to find a discount. Tierra del Sol offers lower rates in the afternoon.
Unfortunately, this course is not in good shape. Weeds growing on several of the greens, rocks in the sand traps, sand traps that need grooming, tee boxes that need mowing. One person mowing the greens while you are putting, fairways with little or no grass, and plenty of weeds. The golf balls at the driving range are so old, that many of the balls are out of round. I find it difficult to understand how a course can be in such disarray and have such high green fees.

With that being said---I found the course challenging. The wind adds an element to the game that is fun to deal with for 18 holes.

If you are looking to play an 18-hole golf course, I would consider giving Tierra del Sol a try. If not, look at playing Divi 9-hole golf course.

Scenic course with challenging winds

Beautiful course and well maintained. Wind adds to the challenge as it is often a two club wind. Hole ten had a bird mating problem where two mated birds were protective and kept diving at you while you tried to putt. Good for a laugh. I played three rounds here and whenever we come back I will play again.

Better than the reviews!

We play this course every time we come to Aruba . You have to understand that it is a desert course and very windy so it's never going to have pristine fairways but that being said the views and the welcoming folks in the clubhouse are worth the price of admission. We did get a super deal this time but would have paid a bit more to have such an enjoyable experience.. If you like playing a challenging course with great scenery then this is for you.. You are playing golf in Aruba with great ocean views and goats sharing some tee boxes with you. You can't have that everywhere.

Very nice Course

The Course is in good condition,some dry peaces but for an island which has not the rain we had in Europe it is really good.
The greens are in perfect condition,the people who work there are friendly and help with everything.
I will play there a lot of times in future,as I live since last month at Aruba.

Goat Farm

This course was in terrible shape. The greens are beaten up and it looks like they might have a disease as there are brown patches on almost every one. The fairways are very uneven, with some grass in places and dirt in others. There were goats grazing on hole #2, which may explain the lack of fairway. The bunkers were uneven and most of them had grass growing in them. I expected a resort like course, especially for $159 for the round, but was very disappointed. A couple of other items to mention. The golf carts are really beaten up. The one I had wouldn’t engage the brake and kept rolling away from me on hills. The rental clubs, which are Titleist, are at least 3/4 generations from the current models. I would not recommend playing this course.

Needs maintenance

Beautiful layout. Nice views. Course needs major maintenance. Greens and fairways burnt out. Greens were being top dressed. Tee boxes were not mowed. Played the course numerous times. This was the worst condition I recall. Hopefully they will put more money into course maintenance.

This course is poorly maintained

We were excited to play this course for the first time and were quickly disappointed in how poorly maintained it is. They only had a few water stations throughout and no beverage cart running on a Saturday. Cost of $400 for two of us to play and definitely not worth the money.

Terrible course conditions

Beautiful amenities but it was like playing on Mars. Fairways were rocky and not very green, and you can easily lose a ball in the middle of the fairway. Not worth it for the price

Beautiful Course that has been severely neglected

Appalled at the condition of the course…..browned out fairways……diseased greens…..grass growing in the sand traps…..tee boxes overwhelmed with weeds and crabgrass. This course had their water shut by the government due to financial difficulties. As a result the course has suffered. Hardly any staff working the course. With all of this a fact they still charge $130.00 for a round of golf. This isn’t worth $25.00 per round. You know a course is in trouble if they are recycling their score cards….yes that’s correct…..they erase prior rounds that golfers leave on the cart and hand them out to the next people playing. On top of all this the staff is quite rude….when I voiced my displeasure with the condition of the course they told me to take it up with the online booking agent. So, that’s exactly what I am doing. Avoid at all costs….it’s a shame for quite a few years it was a delight to play there.

Gone way downhill

Course has deteriorated greatly.
Suffering substantially over the past 2 years surely due to Covid issues.
Fairways & greens were very brown & burnt out.
Tee boxes were in very poor shape.
Absolutely NOT worth the money anymore.
Very sad to see a very nice Robert Trent course fall into such disrepair.

Experiencing temporary irrigation problems.

I’ve been playing this course for years and loved playing here every time but unfortunately this was not one of those times. It’s pretty much completely burnt out with greens for the most part in poor to almost impossible to putt on condition. They had water cut off for several months which was beyond their control. On a desert island this result was inevitable. The good news is that it came back on the night before I played, of course too late for my experience. I hope it will be back to its normal beautiful conditions in a few weeks (fingers crossed).. Go there when it’s back, you’ll like it. Oh, practice your knock down shots. You’re gonna need them in this wind.

Horrible!

The course was completely burnt out. Every fairway, all the rough and every Teebox were burnt brown grass. Even the greens were horrible with only 10 to 20% of the green having green turf – the rest was either baked out or destroyed.

Everything was old and tired. The carts are 2014 model and look even older. Weird squeaks, loose steering and locking brakes. The rental clubs are several years old and in extremely poor condition.

The range had nothing but old mismatched balls that looked to be 10 to 20 years old. It’s quite sad because the layout looks like it might have been an interesting course with elevation changes and beautiful views of the sea from many holes, but now it just seems like a sad course that shouldn’t even be open to the public.

Very Poor Conditions

The course has totally burned out. They apparently have a failed water source for irrigation and haven’t irrigated for a couple of months.
