Best Golf Courses In Grand Cayman (2021)

 

In this article, we review the best golf courses in Grand Cayman, Cayman Islands. 

 

1. The Ritz-Carlton Golf Club

Opened in 2006, the Ritz-Carlton Golf Club is an award-winning 9-hole golf course, designed by Greg Norman.

This golf course is situated amongst a series of salt-water lagoons. The scenery here is beautiful, with a true Caribbean ambience.

Since this course is only 9-holes, it is great for people that want to play multiple rounds in a single day. Not everyone has the time or will to play a full 18-hole course, making this course a great option for many people.

This course has a pro shop, equipment rental and private lessons available.

It is slightly more expensive to play at this course compared to other courses in Grand Cayman, but the experience is definitely worth the extra money.
