The golf courses at the Sandy Lane Golf Resort in Barbados. While The Old Nine course has a lot of history to it, you'll be playing through the Sandy Lane Estate, so get ready to keep it straight as the fairways are tight and the greens are small.
While the Tom Fazio designed Country Club course brings it own challenges, you not only have to battle the course but you could find yourself like me being distracted by the breathtaking views of the Caribbean Sea.
And I still have not had the opportunity to play the Green Monkey at the Sandy Lane Resort yet.
On my only visit to the resort, I had just enough time to see how this golf course was created from an old limestone quarry, you'll see exposed rock faces form and dramatic contrasts to the lush rolling greens of the fairways.
This course is definitely is on my bucket list.
But where to stay ?
Next on my golf
holiday planning checklist is where to stay when on an island?
The quality of the accommodations is important to me.
On a recent trip I stayed at the beautiful Ocean Club on Paradise Island, in the Bahamas.
Should it be a villa overlooking the ocean with a staff? Buddies of mine swear by this as the only way to stay in the Dominican Republic.
The choices for all inclusive Caribbean resorts can also be daunting.
Don't worry I always do my homework. That is why the price of the golf package has to be of value.
My other guilty pleasure I must confess I am a foodie, so for any great Caribbean golf getaway to me has to include great restaurants.
So I will be giving you some ideas and reviews of some of the best Caribbean restaurants.
From the little beach bar that features great cocktails and sunsets to the 5 star establishments with a great wine cellar.
I hope you will also take the time to share your favorite spots as well.
What we all have in common is the love of the game and a passion for the Caribbean. So...sit back, relax, and enjoy your time here.
I wish you nothing but blue skies, sunshine and gentle breezes on your Caribbean golf holiday.
