With special thanks to West Nautical, we have put together a list of the best Golf Course in the Med and the Caribbean.
The French Riviera boasts some of the finest golf courses in the world. Being such a luxurious and glamourous destination, there will be plenty of other superyachts in the area. The beaches and restaurants the French Riviera offers are exceptional, as are its golf courses.
Golf Club Saint-Tropez was developed by South African golfer Gary Player and his team. While playing, golfers can take in the stunning views of Saint-Tropez harbour and the Pampelonne beaches. With 18-holes and a span of 6045 metres, this course is full of variety: a first-class choice for golf lovers.
La Turbie in Nice is also home to an extraordinary golf club: Monte Carlo Golf Club. The course overlooks the Principality of Monaco, with mountains and sea surrounding the green. This 18-hole course is ideal for highly skilled players because of its rolling terrain.
Mallorca is the largest of the Balearic Islands. Sailing through these waters is a breath-taking experience with magnificent views around every corner. Specifically, this island flaunts crystal clear waters, stunning sunsets and beautiful beaches.
Golf Son Gual is one of the many exquisite golf courses Mallorca has to offer. This par 72 golf course is one of the newest to the island and overlooks spectacular views of the Mediterranean coastline. Consequently, it’s no wonder Golf Son Gual ranks within the top 100 golf courses in Europe.
The Algarve, Portugal
Whether you’re looking for stunning beaches or challenging golf courses, the Algarve is bound to have just what you’re searching for. The Algarve is home to an astounding 31 golf courses.
Monte Rei Resort ranks within the top 20 golf courses in Europe and is the top course in Portugal! This is because of The Jack Nicklaus Signature Course, designed in 2007 by 18-time Major Champion Jack Nicklaus. This 18-hole course is tucked between the Atlantic coast and the Serra do Caldeirão mountains. It’s ideal for players of all abilities and with marvellous scenic views, what’s not to love?
Dorado Beach, Puerto Rico
Jam-packed with glorious mountains, waterfalls, beaches, and cities: Puerto Rico is a hub of culture and history and an all-around stunning destination.
Just outside San Juan, Dorado Beach Resort is the place to go if you’re looking for world-class golf courses. The East Course is a stunning coastal course surrounded by picturesque ocean views. What’s more, Golf Digest named this course the number one golf course in Puerto Rico in 2016, and it hosted the PGA Tour Latinoamerica Tour Championship in 2015. It is perfect for golfers of all abilities and a challenge for even the most highly skilled.
Casa de Campo, Dominican Republic
The Casa de Campo Resort in the Dominican Republic has three golf courses. The most famous is the Teeth of the Dog course, complete with ocean views and pristine fairways. Thus, it’s no wonder this course is ranked number one in the Caribbean.
The resort also boasts luxury facilities such as outstanding restaurants and bars, an equestrian centre, a marina and private beaches. Enjoyed by travellers and celebrities alike, this resort is the place to be for privacy and luxury.
Ocean Club, Atlantis Paradise Island, Bahamas:
Atlantis Paradise Island features the Ocean Club Golf Course: an 18-hole, par-72 championship course covering 7,100 yards. Its position on a peninsula means that crosswinds are likely, making this course a challenge for even the most experienced golfers. Some say it’s the most picturesque golf course in the Bahamas, with spectacular views all around and some holes positioned right next to the ocean.
As if that wasn’t enough, the tremendous list of facilities this resort has to offer is exceptional. The island features 11 swimming pools (including the Adult-only The Cove Pool), a nightclub, a theatre, restaurants, casinos, a spa, sports facilities, and even a library: you’ll never want to leave. In short, Atlantis Paradise Island promises a golfing holiday you’ll never forget as this resort certainly lives up to its name.
