Tee Up on Nevis for the Caribbean’s Best Golf
Golfers are getting back into the swing of things since Four Seasons Resort Nevis, West Indies reopened in December 2010.
Playing the Robert Trent Jones II golf course has always been a signature experience of Four Seasons Resort Nevis, West Indies.
The Resort closed in October 2008 due to impacts from Hurricane Omar—just after being named the #1 Golf Resort in the Caribbean by Condé Nast Traveler, and listed among the Top 25 International Golf Resorts in the Golf Digest Index.
The par-71, 6,766-yard layout is undeniably one of the Caribbean’s most scenic, climbing through lush rain forest up the side of Nevis Peak.
Reflecting the favourite memories of Nevis golf fans, here are eight defining moments:
1. Golf in the Morning
It’s a real thrill to start out in your cart and catch that first glimpse of the course: the flat first hole pointing your way up the mountain. On a morning with golden sunshine and a fresh breeze off the sea, there’s an exciting sense of potential.
2. Historic Landmarks
At the second hole, you tee off beside the ruins of an old sugar mill, giving a connection to the island’s history.
3. Playful Wildlife
You might get lucky and spot a troop of green vervet monkeys, swinging from the trees or scampering across the fairway.
4. View of St. Kitts
There’s a genuine reward when you reach the signature 15th hole, the highest point of the Resort, and witness the breathtaking panorama across the Caribbean to Nevis’ sister island of St. Kitts.
5. Friendly Faces
Say hello to Mac kee France, the Resort’s Director of Sports and an ever-present figure on the course. He’s a Nevis native and a familiar face at Four Seasons for nearly 20 years.
6. Finish at the Beach
Your game comes to a spectacular finish at the 18th hole—the only seaside green—overlooking the surf of Pinney’s Beach (where you might plan to cool off later).
7. Golf Lessons with an Expert
Book a session with long-time head golf pro Bruce Wilson, who has returned to Nevis for the reopening. Get his tips at the driving range and putting green or out on the course.
8. The 19th Hole
Relax at Mango restaurant on the beach with a Tipsy Palmer—a Four Seasons twist on the Arnold Palmer—featuring mango rum, mango iced tea and lemonade. No matter your score, it’s a perfect way to end the day.
