Pristine Bay Resort.
With the hotel and spa’s grand opening, Pristine
Bay will fully realize its promise as Honduras’

The best is yet to come at Pristine Bay Resort.

Must-Play Golf Courses
whatever your golfing preference — desert dunes,
wind-swept links, lush rainforest or even mountain terrain —
few places in the world boast as many opportunities as the
Caribbean. Add to that snorkeling in crystal-blue waters, fishing for trophies or lounging on pristine beaches, and there’s
something for everyone. Across this tropical landscape, seaside holes replete with alluring vistas make the Caribbean an idyllic setting for golf. Before the year is
up, schedule a tee time in paradise. By Rob Thomas
“The Black Pearl is one of the Caribbean’s
five ‘must play’ golf courses.”
El Camaleon
The National Audubon Society
has recognized El Camaleon for
its environmental commitment.
But golfers will appreciate it as a
tropical gem played across everchanging topography, hence the
name. This Greg Norman design
presents menacing sand dunes and
unforgiving mangroves. Tranquil
lagoons and a foursome of subterranean caves — known as cenotes —
are just a few of the unique hazards.
From the tips, this track will challenge top players, as it stretches to
more than 7,000 yards, with water
coming into play on all but three
holes. But four sets of tees make
this course fun for any level.
Teeth of the Dog
Tranquil lagoons
and a foursome of
subterranean caves,
known as cenotes,
are just a few of
the many unique
hazards at Mexico’s
El Camaleon.
No golf trip to the Caribbean
is complete without a stop at
what many consider the region’s
top course, Teeth of the Dog.
Chiseled by hand out of the rugged Dominican coral rock, this
Pete Dye design earned its name
from the construction crew, who
referred to the unforgiving piece of
land as Dientes del Perro. It can be
argued that there are 18 “signature”
holes, but especially memorable is
number five, a par-3 in a secluded
rock peninsula on the ocean’s edge
shaped like the snapping jaws of a
dog. While there, play two other
Dye gems, Dye Fore and the Links.
Black Pearl
Golfers of all skill levels will enjoy
the Black Pearl, a Pete and Perry
Dye original at the new Pristine
Bay Resort. Located on Roatan,
the par-72 7,179-yard layout is
Honduras’ first 18-hole championship design. Featuring 14 holes
with unfettered views of the ocean
and the Mesoamerican barrier
reef, it starts at the
ocean’s doorstep before
rising into rolling foothills. A Dyesignature island-green par-3 is one
of many highlights. Pristine Bay’s
120-room five-star hotel and spa
opened in January and incorporates many other amenities, including a beach club and marina.
Cinnamon Hill Golf Course
Nestled within Montego Bay’s
historic Rose Hall Plantation,
this par-72 6,828-yard course
occupies Jamaica’s northernmost
point. Depending on the tide, its
open and wind-swept front nine is
frequently just steps from the sea,
while the back nine gently climbs
into the verdant hills. Caddies will
bring the site’s vibrant history to
life as they point out landmarks
like the family burial plot of poet
Elizabeth Barrett Browning,
the longtime home of Johnny
and June Cash, and centuriesold aqueducts and grave sites.
Adjacent to Cinnamon Hill, the
all-inclusive 489-room Hilton
Rose Hall Resort & Spa caters to
golfers’ every whim.

Punta Espada
When all is said and done, Cap
Cana will boast a trifecta of
Golden Bear gems, but the first
has already garnered rave reviews.
Jack Nicklaus’ Punta Espada
stretches to more than 7,000
yards, and eight of its holes kiss
the crystal-blue waters of the
Caribbean Sea. Winding through
bluffs, beach, lagoons and brilliant
foliage, signature holes include
the monster par-3 13th, played
over crashing waves, and the
three-shot par-5 second, which
skirts an ocean inlet. An infinity
bunker extending to the beach is
the calling card of the par-4 eighth.
