Top 10 Caribbean Golf Courses | 2001

6. The Tryall Club, Montego Bay, Jamaica.
Par: 71. Yardage: 6,772.
Architect: Ralph Plummer, 1959.
Green fees: $80-$150. Tee time: 876-956-5681.
Stay at: The Tryall Club, 800-238-5290.
Notes: Built on an old sugar plantation, Tryall still has the on-course waterwheel to prove it, plus a gorgeous lush landscape. The signature fourth's approach must carry a rushing river.

7. Carambola Golf Club, Kingshill, St. Croix.
Par: 72. Yardage: 6,843.
Architect: Robert Trent Jones, 1966.
Green fees: $62­$80. Tee time: 340-778-5638.
Stay at: Sunterra Resorts Carambola Beach, 340-778-3800 (ask for the Davis Bay Suite).
Notes: Beloved for its friendly members and attentive beer-cart girls, its hilly challenge ends with four beachside holes.

8. Treasure Cay Golf Club, Abaco, Bahamas.
Par: 72. Yardage: 6,985.
Architect: Dick Wilson, 1965.
Green fees: $60­$70.
Tee time: 242-365-8045.
Stay at: Treasure Cay Beach Villas, 242-365-8039.
Notes: Known for its unhurried tranquility, no tee times are taken here. Just show up and try to keep it in the fairway at this windy, tight paean to minimalist design.

9. Links at Safe Haven, Grand Cayman Island.
Par: 71. Yardage: 6,606.
Architect: Roy Case, 1994.
Green fee: $120. Tee time: 345-949-5988.
Stay at: Hyatt Regency Grand Cayman, 800-233-1234.
Notes: A classic links-style course spiked by a series of saltwater lakes, Safe Haven's 235-yard par three eleventh is one of the best holes in the Caribbean.

10. Provo Golf Club, Providenciales, Turks and Caicos Islands.
Par: 72. Yardage: 6,642.
Architect: Karl Litten, 1992.
Green fee: $120. Tee time: 649-946-5991.

Notes: The ultimate in target golf, with waste bunkers, lots of water—twelve acres of inland lakes—marsh areas and plenty of white herons and pink flamingos.
