St. Kitts & Nevis (SKN) is fast becoming a premier port of call for the travelling golfer.
Located just 15-minutes by car from the airport is the St. Kitts Marriott Resort & Royal Beach Casino, along with the Royal St. Kitts Golf Club an 18-hole, par-71 championship course that stretches to 6,900 yards from the back tees. Re-designed by Canadian golf course architect Thomas McBroom, the links-style course features holes with views of both the Caribbean Sea and the Atlantic Ocean.
Across the Narrows, a 2-mile channel that separates Nevis from St. Kitts, is the Four Seasons Resort Nevis Golf Club, a 6,700-yard championship course designed by Robert Trent Jones II in 1991. Unlike the Royal St. Kitts course which offers wide fairways and relatively flat terrain, the Four Seasons course winds its way up and down the lower levels of Mount Nevis, the now dormant volcano that created the island.
Future developments include, Kittitian Hill, a 400-acre resort and residential development on the north side of St. Kitts will unveil the Irie Fields Golf Club, an 18-hole, par 72 Ian Woosnam signature course built in the shadows of St. Kitts’ highest peak, Mt. Liamuiga.
Rounding out this grand foursome of Caribbean golf courses will be Christophe Harbour, a Tom Fazio designed layout on St. Kitts’ Southeastern Peninsula. Set atop cliffs that rise 500-feet from the sea, the course will offer 360-degree panoramic views of St. Kitts and Nevis that will take your breath away.
