Normally when you travel, you want to play a number of different courses. However, when you get to Jamaica, the tendency is to kick back and really relax so hopping from course to course just doesn’t fit the island vibe.
Yes, Sandals is a great all inclusive resort with all the food, drinks, water sports and relaxation you can possibly imagine.
The Golf Club in Ocho Rios provides a fair test of golf, not too hard, not too easy. If this course was in the U.S., it would be considered a better than average Florida course. But in Jamaica, things are just a bit more lush and exotic, so the experience elevates to much better than average.
