Delightful Nevis is full of surprises and brags an award-winning, 18-hole championship golf course in the foothills of Nevis Peak. These world-renowned fairways are located at Four Seasons Resort Nevis and enthusiasts fly in from all over the Caribbean to play here. Luckily, hotel residents have preferential teeing-off times, as well as two complimentary clinics and a 9-hole friendly scamper against staff each week.
An exclusive creation by Robert Trent Jones Junior, the immaculate greens and fairways of this spectacular, par 71 course have been carved out of rolling landscapes, meandering through tropical foliage down to the coast. It’s kept in mint condition and the hilly terrain promises to challenge and test even the very best players.
Expect wonderful ocean views across to St Kitts as you putt and swing, not to mention a little monkey business – comical, green-tinged monkeys live beside the golf course in the mango, banana and coconut trees. They’re great fun to watch as they scamper about and add a new dimension to scorecard notes!
‘Practice makes perfect’ is openly encouraged, with a putting green, driving range and private golf lessons, as well as special packages and rates for children. In addition, the resort’s pro shop offers superior facilities and full equipment hire, including buggies.
As you complete the 18th hole and cool your brow with a refreshing iced towel, take time to reflect on what could possibly be the most amazing golf experience of your life.
Tip: Avoid the crowds and come off season for a slice of golfing paradise on this deliciously sleepy Caribbean isle.
