St. Lucia Golf Course Review

St. Lucia Golf Club

Located high in the mountains in Cap Estates on the northern tip of St. Lucia, the St. Lucia Golf & Country Club is a par 71, 18-hole course that traverses some of the island’s most beautiful vegetative landscape.  Designed by John Ponko (an associate of Robert Trent Jones) the course opened in 2001 as has proven itself to be one of the Caribbean’s most challenging layouts.

Immaculately manicured rolling and twisting fairways take you on a spectacular ride through mountainous terrain, past unspoiled wetlands and over beautiful water features.  There are moments when glimpses of the Caribbean Sea and Atlantic Ocean or the sounds of abundant wildlife distract thoughts of perilous golf shots.

The clubhouse at St. Lucia Golf Club is expansive and features a well-stocked golf shop, locker rooms and showers for both men and women, banquet facilities for tournaments, outings, weddings and events, and a bar and restaurant with patio dining overlooking the 18th green..

The complimentary practice facilities include a large grass driving range and short game practice area. There is also a large practice green and we recommend that golfers allow a few extra minutes for putting practice before a round. The Bermuda greens at St. Lucia Golf Club are like lightening - slight taps can take you 6 feet past the hole - and even the most subtle undulation will effect the outcome of an otherwise good putt.

For newbies and players needing a little help with their golf swing, private sessions with the resident pro are available. Group lessons and clinics are also available. Golf carts are nicely equipped with club protectors as well as a ball and club washer.

St. Lucia Golf & Country Club offers memberships, but also caters to visitors to the island. Guests at island resorts and those coming to the island via cruise ships appreciate the complimentary transportation to and from the course.

Three sets of tee boxes on this par 71 course play 6,685 yards, 6,319 yards and 5,362 yards. The slope/rating for each tee is 138/74.3, 135/72.4 and 129/72,4 respectively. The course is well marked with yardage markers on all tee boxes, blocks in the center of the fairway at 100/150 and 200 yards (+ 250 yards on par 5’s), cart paths are marked, a 150 yard stake is located in the center of the fairway and some sprinkler heads are marked. Pin placement sheets indicate the daily hole location.

The course at St. Lucia Golf Club is a genuine test of a golfer’s skill. Numerous long par 3’s and 4’s, rolling, sloping fairways, well-placed bunkers and tricky greens offer a challenge unparalleled in the Caribbean. It is a pretty course with nicely manicured tree-lined fairways, 64 soft sand bunkers, 11 water hazards, and some stunning views of the natural landscape.

If you are planning to visit St. Lucia or to relocate there, know that St. Lucia Golf & CC is the currently the only course on the island, and though the course has changed a bit since its opening (a new par 3 was added and hole numbering has changed), plans are in the works with Jack Nicklaus for a slight redesign of the course as well as construction of new 18 hole Jack Nicklaus golf course just minutes away. There will be some residential development in the future here but none that will infringe on the beauty or playability of this course. 

We consider this course a “must play” in the Caribbean - for more information and a link to the St. Lucia Golf & Country Club website - click here.
