The Golf Club at Half Moon

The half moon was just a collection of less than 20 cottages when it opened half a century ago. Now, the 400-acre property of the Caribbean course has more than 400 rooms and suites which house a fair number of celebrities such as the queen of England. The Half Moon is a stone's throw away from Sangster International airport. Yet it has the aura of a lone and peaceful oceanfront abode.

The Sangster international takes it name from the former Prime Minister Donald Sangster who died in 1967. You will also find his picture on a hundred dollar bill.

The 18 hole golf course is par 72. It was designed by Robert Trent. The holes are a challenge in them and need to be taken seriously. The background of the course is just breathtaking and, at times, can make you lose your concentration.

The Half Moon is known as the best championship golf club in the Caribbean. It contains some real challenges that are the hallmark of Robert Trent courses. Though, at times, the golf course borders on the hostile,  it is fair enough to say that both the experienced and casual golfers will have the time of the their lives trying to conquer this one. In fact, there is something for everyone in this course.

The Half Moon golf course was declared the best Caribbean Golf Resort by Caribbean world Magazine. The course is suitable for both the experienced and in-experienced golfer. It was renovated recently by a famous golf course architect. The renovation has done justice to the course having repositioned the fairways, bunkers and the undulating greens. The architect took great care to enhance the actual shape of the land while making improvements in the over-all ambience of the course.

Hole number 4 is a real challenge because it has the most exotic view and thus keeps distracting you all the time. But let's not underscore the hole which is as exotic as the Caribbean setting. You can either approach gently or risk a longer and dangerous club off the tee.

The club welcomes all guests all season round. Rental carts, caddies and trolleys are available. Golf lessons are also available from professional golfers. Tee times should be reserved in advance. The championship tee is par 72 and 7119 yards, Regular tee is par 72 and 6585 yards, women tee is par 72 and 5972 yards & Forward tee is also par 72 and 5148 yards.

If you want to stay in a hotel or a suite near the Golf course you can easily find a hotel with quite reasonable overnight charges. Make sure that you don’t choose a hotel that is far away from the golf course. It will save you a lot of walking.

You can also eat great food at the club or a nearby hotel and the club also offers tennis and swimming pool facilities. Recently the club has announced some packages for its users. You can ask for and obtain such a package.

It is fair to say that there is still room for improvement in the Golf course. Yet it presents quite some interesting challenges.
