Although Jamaica only offers about twelve courses, golfers of all experience levels will not have any trouble locating an appropriate course to play.

Experienced golfers might be interested in trying The Tryall Club, one of Jamaica's top-rated golf courses. Its location just an hour west of Montego Bay gives it the perfect location for vacationing golfers who are looking for a challenge.
This upscale resort is a private residential community aimed at North Americans and Europeans, but a game at Tryall can be arranged through hotel concierges despite the course's status as a private club.
Negril's all-inclusive resorts appeal to beginning golfers looking for fun and a good time on the course. Beginners will fit right in at Negril Hills Golf Club, because most of its players are either first-timers or occasional golfers.

If you'd prefer a course that's just as challenging as The Tryall Club but not quite as upscale, head for Sandals Golf and Country Club. You'll find some of Jamaica's best golf at Sandals, and you'll be surrounded by plenty of experienced golfers. Sandals was in rough condition a few years back, but new owners completely revamped it in 2006.
