Owner description: Add this once-in-a-lifetime golf experience to your “must play” list located within the Santa Barbara Planation. Designed by the legendary golf architect Pete Dye, the par 72 Old Quarry Golf Course draws its name from the historic quarries where famed Curaçao marble is mined. If you’re looking for a phenomenal getaway, our golf course is the perfect choice. Pete Dye's championship seaside layout was designed to fit seamlessly into the islands's hills and valleys. A challenge to players of all skill levels, the course meanders between the stunning blue Caribbean Sea, the slopes and hills of the Tafelberg Mountain and the sheltered bay known as Spanish Water. To assure it would be built true to the conservation principles of Santa Barbara's owners, Pete Dye's son P.B.Dye along with the Golf Manager, Jim Bolinger, planted its fairways and greens with the hearty Paspalum grass, which can be irrigated using both brackish and recycled water. A handsome clubhouse and restaurant answer golfers' needs and provide a spectacular view of the Caribbean Sea.

It's a very nice PB Dye course but forget about getting to the greens in regulation. Winds are about 20-3- mph all the time. Pro shop is OK.

The fantastic scenery makes up for the really strong winds on the first 2 holes. A fun and pretty course for all playing levels. We played on a very windy afternoon and practically had the course to ourselves. Bring extra balls because you won't want to search the prickly brush for a lost one.

Stunning views. Course is in great shape. The first two holes are a real test! The wind really comes into play, but the course is fair. Rate of play was excellent. Thank you!
