Jamaica Golf Course Review

Half Moon Resort - Rose Hall, Jamaica

Half Moon Resort - Rose Hall, Jamaica

Half Moon Golf Club in Rose Hall Jamaica, West Indies, is a gorgeously designed 18-hole championship course that is truly one of the golfing gems of the Caribbean. This layout was originated by Robert Trent Jones Sr and redesigned by Roger Rulewich. The property at Half Moon encompasses 400 acres of prime Caribbean oceanfront land bordered by a two mile white sand beach. The resort now features 197 spacious rooms and suites as well as 33 expansive 4-5-6 and 7 bedroom villas each with private pools plus butler, cook and housekeeper. The twoguyswhogolf stayed in a 7 bedroom villa years ago and it was the vacation of our lives.

GOLF AT HALF MOON

First of all, visitors who stay at Half Moon will be ideally situated to play perhaps the best 4-some of courses the Caribbean has to offer that are within 30 minutes of each other. The Half Moon course is on property with free shuttle service to and from the clubhouse, and Cinnamon Hill Rose Hall and White Witch are just minutes away. World renowned Tryall is less than 1/2 hour away. Whenever we visit - we stay in the Montego Bay ( Mobay) area for at least a few days so that we can play each of these layouts, then venture to Negril for a time to enjoy the best beach on the island and the best snorkleing off the nearby cliffs. …together this makes for an ideal vacation. However, staying a Half Moon and playing this course every day - is a treat in itself!

The golf facilities at Half Moon include a grass driving range, plus short game area with sand bunker and chipping/ putting green. The clubhouse includes a pro shop, 2 meeting rooms, locker rooms and a lounge for drinks, snacks or a light lunch. The course was made-over in 2005 - with newly aligned, multiple tee complexes plus repositioned fairways and bunkers, making the course more enjoyable for resort players. The conditioning here is always top notch and the landscaping is extraordinary.

As the distances and slopes indicate, this can be a challenging round for the experienced players, and the mildly rolling fairways often provide enough room that golfers are encouraged to use driver off the tee. Resort and beginning golfers will love the challenge and beauty - choose the right set of tees and this is an enjoyable experience for all levels of players.

As with all golf experiences in Jamaica, look for direction from your caddie - who is experienced in providing accurate yardage information all along the course, and can also be of assistance with club selection and in reading the greens. 100, 150 and 200 yard markers are provided for on each fairway, but you will have to ask your caddie for pin placement information. Bag and shoe storage (and rentals) are also available. Locker rooms are provided, and there is an excellent outdoor bar located on property right next to the clubhouse and driving range.
