Top Women-friendly Golf Courses In The Caribbean
1. Casa de Campo in the Dominican Republic
This is my all-time favourite as it encompasses three championship courses designed by Pete Dye and set in an absolutely luxurious compound. It makes a great vacation to travel to with girlfriends as it there is much to explore nearby in the beautiful stone town of La Romana and is also close to the world’s largest cigar factory. The energy of the Dominican people is truly infectious.
2. Santa Barbara Beach & Golf Resort in Curacao
This is a spectacular golf course along the sea also designed by Pete Dye. The course takes on the shape of the naturally contoured site overlooking the Caribbean Sea and the sheltered bay known as Spanish Water. It is a course that challenges players of all skill levels. There are incredible snorkelling and diving sites in the area which makes for a perfect for action-packed family vacation. I took it a notch up and combined diving and golf!
3. The Abaco Club on Winding Bay, The Bahamas
This super secluded golf course is surrounded by pristine beaches. This one of a kind golf course is the world’s first tropical links course and is rumoured to be the number one course in The Bahamas. It feels like tropical paradise to me. The surrounding compound is serene and luxurious, making it perfect for a girls’ retreat or a romantic getaway.
