Golf is a sport played by millions of men, women, and children. For some people, golf is more of a leisurely pastime while for others it is a fierce form of competition. No matter how well a person plays, spending time on a golf course in Negril Jamaica is the ultimate experience. After all, the surrounding landscape is breathtakingly beautiful.

In addition to the immaculate course and beautiful vegetation, people can clearly see ocean beaches and waters in the distance. Keep in mind that there are numerous golf courses located throughout Jamaica but specific to Negril, the Negril Hills Golf Club has quickly gained a solid reputation for being one of the best.

There is also a modern clubhouse for relaxing after a round of golf and a first-class restaurant on-site that serves authentic Jamaican cuisine.
