St Martin: Golf Mullet Bay
Located on the edge of Mullet Bay Beach on the Dutch part of the island, this 18-hole, par 70 course is a magnificent setting for golfers.
In 1990, a small group of keen golfers has founded the Sint Maarten Golf Association with over 130 players. This was to make their golfing experience more meaningful and to promote the sport on the island.
Following their example, golfers on the French side of the island have founded in 2005 the Tamarins Golf Association (founder: Hockins Seguelha).
The main goal was to make it possible to validate the Mullet Bay Golf Course and to organize official competitions and qualifying your handicap by the FFG.
Guadeloupe: Golf International de St. Francois
This public 18-hole, par-71 course was designed by Robert Trent Jones Sr. and is known for its windy conditions and multiple water traps, offering a serious challenge to all who play.
Martinique: Golf de l’Imperatrice Josephine
Playing golf in Martinique is a pleasant experience with beautiful tropical settings and cooling sea breeze.
