Rating 70.9

Formerly the Upton Golf Club, Sandals Golf & Country Club boasts one of the most popular golf courses in Jamaica. Many changes were made to the original nine-hole course, including its expansion into an 18-hole course and the replacement of the grass on the greens and fairways. The course offers many challenges including narrow fairways and small greens that drop-off abruptly across an undulating landscape. Although there are many beautiful views of both the sea and mountains to distract golfers, this course requires precision. Sandals Golf & Country Club also offers two practice areas, both with putting greens and chipping areas.

Scenic Course

Played this course while on vacation, played it three times. The course is very scenic with many changes in elevation. Fairways are nice and wide, rough is very playable but will penalize you if you do not strike the ball first. The greens could be better though, they were rough and patchy. They are small and very challenging. Listen to your caddy, they know the breaks!
The staff is very friendly. Our caddy for the three rounds was awesome! He quickly recognized our games, my wife and I, and suggested the most appropriate club for the situation.
All in all, a very good course, truly enjoyes playing this track!
