Are you a golf enthusiast? Are you a beginner? Regardless of your ability, St. Croix has three amazing golf courses that will challenge your skills and leave you in awe of the beauty that surrounds them. String them together for a week of golfing and you’ll see three distinct areas of the island with a variety of views and unique highlights.
The Carambola Golf and Country Club is a sprawling 18-hole course that is nestled around historic plantation ruins at the center of the Carambola Resort. The par-72 Carambola golf course was designed by world-renowned Robert Trent Jones Sr. and built by Laurence Rockefeller in 1966. Carambola’s golf course received a four star rating from GOLF Magazine and continues to be an attraction to visitors from all over the world.
Three white sandy beaches border the Buccaneer Resort Golf Course. Rounds that last for less than four hours have the potential of lasting much longer as golfers get lost in the picturesque views at every turn. Bob Joyce designed this gorgeous 18-hole course in 1973 which gives players 5,668 yards of expansive green with a par-70 that is a perfect companion to the blues of the Caribbean Sea. With spectacular ocean views at thirteen of those holes, The Buccaneer is an ideal resort course. Challenging, yet very playable, the course is sure to delight golfers of all skill levels!
St. Croix’s third course offers not only stunning views but the notoriety of being the easternmost golf course in the United States! The Reef is a 9-hole course set in the valley on beautiful Teague Bay on the northeastern part of St. Croix. This course, with 3,000 yards of fairways, groomed greens, and water hazards will challenge all levels of golfers. The Reef also offers a driving range and a fully stocked pro shop.
When one thinks of active relaxation, golf should be at the forefront of those thoughts. Golf, with the added perks of island breezes and gorgeous scenery, is ideal. Whether you fancy lush tropical flora swaying before your eyes or tranquil blue water hypnotizing you, golfing on St. Croix should be top priority during your island adventure!
