Caribbean Golf Holiday Destinations
Across its most renowned golfing islands such as Barbados, Bermuda and Dominican Republic, the Caribbean features courses which are known around the world for their splendour as well as PGA Tour pedigree. However, it’s not just golf on offer here as there are a wealth of off-course activities which make a golf holiday here unforgettable and worth the travel and expense.
For this region, the characters, demographics and cultures are extremely diverse, but one constant remains: the Caribbean offers golf and leisure holiday destinations that are the envy of the rest of the world.
Average temperatures frequently approach 30ºC, and the region’s reliance on tourism ensures that every visitor receives a memorable welcome, while the famed party atmosphere and its rum-based cocktails are never far away. Idyllic beaches, where perfect white sand meets the pure Caribbean waters, are the place to enjoy the sunshine, while avid golfers are catered for with the most spectacular championship courses. For sun drenched luxury golf holidays, look no further than the Caribbean.

The Caribbean is littered with utterly spectacular golf courses and none come more eye-catching than the three at Casa de Campo Resort in Dominican Republic. In particularly, the Teeth of the Dog course draws attraction from around the world, playing along the Dominican coastline and dramatically on cliff edges. That’s not the only attraction in DR though as the PGA Tour headed to Puntcana Golf Resort in March 2018 for the very first Corales Puntacana Resort & Club Championship. Over in Bermuda, the Mid Ocean Club is a stunning coastal course while the Green Monkey course at Sandy Lane in Bermuda is synonymous with the innovative and eccentric design which graces the courses in the Caribbean.
The perfect, idyllic Caribbean oceans are a haven for a range of activities away from the fairways. From swimming with sea turtles in Barbados to snorkeling on the Bermuda coastlin or heading on a Catamaran cruise in Dominican Republic, discerning golfers have an astonishing choice of truly unforgettable experiences. Inland you can explore the Mayan ruins in Mexico, taste the world-class cuisine in Jamaica or embark on a mesmerising hike to fill your days.
