Sandals Golf & Country Club started life as Upton Golf Club in 1951 and then became Sandals Golf & Country Club in June 1992. This 18 Hole course, designed by PK Saunders, started as a 9 Hole course but quickly grew to its current championship design. The course is only 15 minutes by car from Ocho Rios, nestled in the hills 750ft above sea level, great combination of elevation and undulation, forgiving and comparatively short at 6404 yards from tips and small greens with drop offs. Golf Digest Magazine granted it a four star rating for courses to play while on vacation.

Sandals Emerald Bay
Exuma , Bahamas

A golfer’s dream, this 18-hole, 7001 yard course has been named “Bahamas Best Golf Course 2014” at the first annual World Golf Awards. The course also hosted the Golf Channel’s Big Break Sandals 2010. Placing the front nine holes through scenic mangroves, Greg Norman took advantage of the landscape’s natural barriers. The back nine offers challenges of a different nature where the sea views create ample distractions from the focus of the game. The ever-changing course presents a worthy challenge for even the most avid golfer. While most courses feature one signature hole, Sandals Emerald Bay Golf Course has six, which edge a rocky coast, rolling emerald fairways, prevailing trade winds and blue water as far as the eyes can see. Golfers will experience a new game each time they play and there are five different tee boxes to accommodate every skill level.
