“Golf Package”
Reviewed 23 June 2014

My husband has played The Jewel and The Woods courses as part of a package. He enjoyed the experience, as he has purchased this special golf package several times. He prefers The Woods course. A horse drawn carriage takes the player from The Jewel course to The Woods, which he thought was neat.

“Great experience! ”
Reviewed 17 June 2014 via mobile

Part of package and glad we did it. I'd give the course a 5 or 6 but the experience & views a 9 or 10! We thought the back nine was nicer than the front.

“beautiful and challenging”
Reviewed 17 June 2014

I have to admit I don't golf, but enjoy riding along with my husband. I like the Jewel Course, but actually like the second nine, the Woods Course, the best. And the drive up to the Woods from the Jewel in a horse drawn cart adds an extra pleasure. Lunch at the Woods restaurant is basic, but the building itself is fun to see. And you can try the Duck Bowling game.

“50 dollar course”
Reviewed 15 June 2014

Golf course was just ok. I was staying at the Grand with a package that stated golf was free but had to pay a cart fee. The cart fee ended up being $80.00. There is nothing special about this course.

“Overpriced and poor condition”
Reviewed 15 June 2014

I played this course in mid-June. It is basically an executive style course with 3 par 3's and 6 very short par 4's. The course was in pretty rough condition with several fairway areas burned out and one green unplayable due to weather damage. The course is tight with small, tricky greens. With the exception of one, the greens were in good condition. This course is way overpriced for the quality of the course. I like to play new courses so I'm glad to have played it once but would not go back again at the prices charged. The views are excellent but you can get those same views at other places on the island without having to pay too much for golf.
