Activity Golf Hole05 Smiles all around! One of the best experiences on our golf course comes from the heart of our caddies. Activity Golf Hole06 Activity Golf Hole07 Staff Golf Caddy04 Activity Golf Hole16


Half Moon golf course was designed by world renowned architect Robert Trent Jones, Sr. and opened in 1962.

The course was later modernised by Roger Rulewich, who removed non-native trees, expanded several greens and renovated bunkers, creating a masterpiece of sheer beauty and game-raising challenges. Routed through a retired sugarcane estate, the course hugs the toe of the slopes of the hills overlooking Half Moon.

It is a bow-tie, classic layout with multiple sets of tees, well-bunkered greens -contoured to accommodate surface drainage, and an overall length ranging from 5,035 to 7,120 yards. A beautiful walking course, this 18-hole par-72 championship course tests scratch and novice golfers alike with similar from appropriate distances.

Primary defence of par are the 26 shallow-faced fairway bunkers requiring solidly-struck tee balls to find the short grass. Constant trade winds blowing off the Caribbean Sea create up-wind challenges and down-wind opportunities. Listen to our caddies, they possess a wealth of course knowledge and are eager to lend an eye to guide a birdie putt, or share a story from their years of experience.

Half Moon withstands the test of time, remaining true to its origins in length and intent, permitting golfers to chase par and history between the palms at Half Moon. Just four minutes away from our golf course are the White Witch and Cinnamon Hill golf courses, making Half Moon a golf destination.
