Attraction details
Owner description: Situated on the historic 4,000 acre Rose Hall Estate, and sited on 200 acres of lush greenery and rolling countryside, The White Witch Golf Course is carved from the rolling countryside of Jamaica’s historic Rose Hall Plantation and is an 18-hole championship golf course designed by Robert von Hagge and Rick Baril. This 6,758-yard, Par 71 treasure is named for the plantation’s beautiful but wicked 19th century plantation mistress, Annee Palmer. Legend has it that Annee’s ghost still haunts the estate, creating an alluring mystique that has fascinated island natives and visitors for generations. Rated as the #1 Golf Course and #1 in Golf Shop Staff service by Conde Nast Traveler and winner of "Jamaica's Best Golf Course" title at the 2015 World Golf Awards, the White Witch is considered one of the finest golf courses in the Caribbean, characterized by mountainous terrain, cool trade winds, colorful foliage and spectacular ocean views from 16 of its 18 holes.

“Amazing course... surprisingly reasonable price...”
Reviewed 23 April 2014

We played the White Witch course in April with our two kids. Price: $90 for adults, $20 for rider, and kids were free! This included green fees and cart fees. You are required to take a caddie and the recommended tip is $20 per player for him/her. Considering the quality of the course (the elevations, the views, the layout, the difficulty, the conditions of the greens), we thought the price was a bargain! We've played some comparable courses in Hawaii (Challenge at Manele and Kapalua Golf) and in Punta Cana (La Cana) and White Witch was just as beautiful and difficult but very reasonable price wise! Don't know how long the price will stay this low - we heard that the course ownership has changed - so maybe the pricing structure changed when ownership changed. The caddies were great too - we have Janie and Rose - both were very a huge help in navigating a challenging course. Overall a great experience!

“Fantastic Golf Experience”
Reviewed 21 April 2014

The huge elevation changes made for a stunning golf course. Very scenic and challenging. Our caddie, Diane, was excellent. We couldn't have navigated the greens without her assistance and enjoyed spending the morning with her. Great photo's, great memories. Hope to be back!

“Best Views in Montego Bay”
Reviewed 10 April 2014

We drove by a number of other golf courses we had considered and White Witch was by far the best. There is no comparison if you are looking for a course with the best ocean views. The course itself is challenging and we would have rather played without our caddie but the experience was top-notch. Definite must-play for any golfer. You will not be disappointed.

Tip: Check with your resort on available promotions as we received a complimentary round through the Iberostar Grand Rose Hall.

“Excellent!”
Reviewed 2 April 2014

Very challenging course. Better layout than Cinnamon Hill. Very scenic as well, with many holes by the water. Excellent caddies that made the game more enjoyable.

“A great golf experience”
Reviewed 30 March 2014

It was our first experience at this golf course. We had a wonderful time. The greens and fairways were in great shape. Playing with a caddie was a great experience. Richard (our caddie) was fantastic. He gave us great golf tips and he was very pro-active and helpful. He always made us feel good (even when our shots were not that good) It was a lot of fun.. Thanks Richard and thanks to the White Witch golf course.. The scenery is out of this world !
