Sandy Lane Resort overview
Sandy Lane represents the ultimate in comfort, elegance and five-diamond service. With luxuriously appointed rooms and suites, a magnificent spa, floodlit tennis courses, 45 holes of championship golf and an exciting children’s program, the resort will anticipate your needs and surpass your expectations.
The Sandy Lane golf experience promises something for everyone – regardless of skill level. It has three distinct courses that offer 45 holes of truly exceptional golf.
Built in 1961, The Old Nine was the first course built on the estate, and is a favourite with repeat guests to the property.
The Country Club, designed by Tom Fazio, is a challenging 18-hole layout, over 7,000 yards long and its features are its immaculately kept fairways and greens, along with stunning coastal views.
Last but not least, The Green Monkey, also designed by Fazio, is something spectacular. It is carved into rock which created amazing backdrops and views on some of its stunning holes. What makes this course special is its exclusivity, and the fact that it only allows for limited tee-times each day, meaning that you will feel like a billionaire whilst playing.
Originally built in 1961 on the site of an old sugar plantation by Ronald Tree, Sandy Lane firmly established itself as the premier address in the Caribbean and has hosted many celebrities, business personalities and even royalty.
In 1970, Sandy Lane Hotel and Golf Club was acquired by Trusthouse Forte, which operated the property until 1996, when it was acquired by Dermot Desmond and Partners and J.P. McManus and completely rebuilt and expanded in 1998, re-opening in March 2001.
