The St Lucia Golf and Country Club is the largest of all the golf courses in St Lucia and is the only one open to the public. It is situated in Cap Estate to the north of the Island which is less than thirty (30) minutes from any hotel in Castries.
From there, you have a panoramic view of the Caribbean Sea or the Atlantic Ocean depending on where you're playing.
The golf and country club course is placed in a semi secluded spot, making it comfortable for even a novice to practice. There are also lessons available from resident golf professionals for those interested in improving their swing or who just want to learn how to play the sport.
This is the only 18-hole golf course in St Lucia. It is a par 71 which plays up to 6685 yards on the blue Tee. The course and was built to host championship matches yet still inviting enough for the recreational golfers.
There are many golf championship matches that have been hosted there and it is interesting to know that it has received a rating of 74.3 from (U.S.G.A) United States Golf Association.
Golfing is most likely to be associated with beautifully manicured lawn and wonderful surroundings. You are sure to find all of these here. All of which contributes to the splendor of playing at the Golf and Country Club.
If you love nature, you will be happy with the natural setting and various wildlife that live on the course. I have seen a few birds and fishes in the ponds which i find very interesting to watch.
While enjoying your day of golfing you are welcomed to be revitalized and refresh yourself at their fully service restaurant and sports bar. They serve a combination of local, regional and international dishes.
The chef does a remarkable job at preparing some delicious meals. In fact, I have always been satisfied with everything I have eaten there so far.
If you are planning a birthday, wedding or anniversary function, you can speak with them to see if it meets your expectation. It is also a good place to host banquets and business meetings.
