The Cinnamon Hill Course at the Rose Hall Resort and Spa is situated on what used to be a large sugar plantation. Jamaica's past history is still present throughout the golf course in the form of graveyards and ruins of old homes. One of these homes, which can be seen from the second hole of the golf course, is the historic former house of Annie Palmer who was called the "White Witch of Rose Hall." The golf course's layout begins fairly open but gradually moves into the lower elevations of the Blue Mountains, where there is dense foliage guarding the fairways. The Cinnamon Hill Course at Rose Hall is not only popular for its lush landscape filled with historical sights, but also for its challenging game.

Too hot for comfort

The course is beautiful, with significant elevation changes. Several holes are played along the Caribbean Sea. The fairways and bunkers were in excellent shape. However, several greens showed signs of stress. There was evidence of the beginning of disease. The layout is challenging, but fair. Playing this course in July brings in heat as a serious factor. It was brutally hot and I had to hydrate repeatedly. Overall, I enjoyed the round despite the temperature being over 90 degrees Fahrenheit. It’s a very nice golf course. I’ve played it multiple times through years and will continue to play it when I visit Jamaica.

Very Good Golf course

Friends and I visiting from the USA and Canada played the course on 6/03 & 6/04 and found it was in great shape although it rained several consecutive days leading up to the weekend. The golf course has some very scenic and some challenging holes. We used Golf Now .com which helped with the cost as normally 18 holes cost anywhere from $125 and up which is pricey.
Cinnamon Hill has some very good caddies.
With several large groups playing on Sunday the starter seemed overwhelmed and there was a glaring lack of communication We enjoyed playing Cinnamon Hill and will go back again.
A word of caution ...to visiting golfers to the Montego Bay area, rule out Half Moon as they overpriced for a less than average golf course and customer service is atrocious.

Cinnamon Hill

Excellent course with breath-taking views from almost every hole. The staff could not have been nicer or more accommodating. If you are lucky enough to have Whitney as your Caddie I can almost promise he’ll take 5-7 strokes off of your score with his knowledge of this fantastic golf course.

A one off but great fun

An expensive round but as a one off, worth the money for the experience. Sea view holes are great and a different task in the hillside. We had a pretty grumpy caddie who was increasingly more interested in looking for balls he could sell (including our lost balls!) than helping us don’t think that is typical.

So much fun!

We had a GREAT time, booked a hot deal for $50 per person and man were we lucky! Paid the extra $15 plus tip for caddy. WELL WORTH THE MONEY!!! Unfortunately we got rained out on hole 12, but we will be back to finish the course for sure! Best course/most fun we have had playing golf on vacation!

Nice course

In Jamaica for 3 weeks this time around. Will play 4 rounds at this course. Two in the can already. I love this course that offers a relatively flat front and hilly and mountainous back. My previous rounds here were pre-pandemic. I thought some of the greens were a little slow this time around. Otherwise. I love this course and will always plan at least one round each time I visit Jamaica.
