- The Resort
- Address & Map
One of Jamaica's most exclusive resorts, Tryall Club sits majestically on lush hills overlooking the Caribbean Sea in Montego Bay, the famous resort on the north-east coast of the island. Nestling amidst the 2,200 acres of a former sugarcane plantation, Tryall Club is owned by some ninety homeowners, many associated with the resort for generations, who have preserved the atmosphere of understated elegance and graciousness lost at many contemporary resorts. Yet the club has kept pace with time, developing into a popular Caribbean destination. Tryall Club boasts an internationally famous championship course, a private sandy beach and exclusive villa accommodation.
Heart of the resort, the historic 18th century Great House is beautifully located on a hill dominating the golf course and with stunning views of the Caribbean. Breakfast and dinner are served in the Great House Terrace Restaurant, while lunch is available at the casual Beach Café Restaurant & Bar. The Great House also features a Cocktail Bar and a fully stocked commissary. Tryall offers an unprecedented standard of luxury and privacy, with accommodation comprised of private Estate Villas and Great House Villas. Tryall Club also offers a full tennis centre, spa services and a private beach with non-motorized watersports.
Tryall Club's hallmark is its championship course, designed in 1958 by Ralph Plummer and venue of such prestigious international events as the Johnnie Walker World Championship. The layout stretches from the oceanside up into the forested hills, past coconut groves and back down to the sea. This fully mature course's fairways are lined with blossoming plants and magnificent trees. Montego Bay includes three further golf courses: Robert Trent Jones, Sr. design, at the exclusive Half Moon resort, and Robert von Hagge's two layouts at Rose Hall.

Montego Bay Golf
• Half Moon Golf Club
Robert Trent Jones Sr. (1961) 18 holes - 7,119 yds - Par 72
Robert Trent Jones Sr. designed the golf course at Half Moon Golf Club, which opened in 1961. Like most of his courses, this one is quite difficult and requires plenty of strategy. It also features one of Jones' trademarks, runway tees. The golf course has undulating greens and a tricky "figure eight" layout with tricky angles that are hard to handle on windy days. Numerous bunkers are strategically situated around the fairways and greens for even more challenge. Due to the course's difficult yet playable nature, Half Moon Golf Club is a popular destination for golfers. Caribbean Magazine even named it the "Best Caribbean Golf Resort."
• Cinnamon Hill GC at Rose Hall
Henry O. Smedley (1969) Redesigned by Robert von Hagge in the year 2000 | 18 holes - 6,637 yds - par 71
The Cinnamon Hill Course at the Rose Hall Resort and Spa is situated on what used to be a large sugar plantation. Jamaica's past history is still present throughout the golf course in the form of graveyards and ruins of old homes. One of these homes, which can be seen from the second hole of the golf course, is the historic former house of Annie Palmer who was called the "White Witch of Rose Hall." The golf course's layout begins fairly open but gradually moves into the lower elevations of the Blue Mountains, where there is dense foliage guarding the fairways. The Cinnamon Hill Course at Rose Hall is not only popular for its lush landscape filled with historical sights, but also for its challenging game.
• White Witch GC at Rose Hall
Robert von Hagge (2000) 18 holes - 6,718 yds - Par 71
The White Witch Course at Rose Hall is named after one of Jamaica's most famous legends, Annie Palmer who was called the "White Witch of Rose Hall." It is rumored that her spirit haunts the Rose Hall estate, including the golf course. Rather than a tropical setting, the course has a unique mountainous terrain but the vibrant foliage, tradewinds, and pleasant ocean views are still in keeping with its Caribbean location. The golf course is challenging with an intimidating layout that features dramatic elevation changes and numerous well-placed bunkers. Although it is a difficult course, its scenery makes it popular amongst all golfers.
Montego Bay | Jamaica
Christopher Columbus was the first European “tourist” to step ashore at Montego Bay in 1494. Now, the Spanish settlement on the north coast of the Island, affectionately known as ¨MoBay ¨, has grown into Jamaica's second city. lLned with upmarket beach resorts, the sparkling 10 mile shoreline is fronted by coral reefs and lagoons, lined with white sandy beaches and backed by green hills shrouded in sugar cane, banana trees and lush tropical vegetation.
The Montego Bay area also has some fascinating historical perspectives that live on in the legends and stories surrounding the few remaining great plantation houses belonging to dynastic families that grew rich from slave labour in past centuries. Several of these are open to the public, if not already turned into luxury estates with golf courses !
The Caribbean's most famous island, Jamaica is a world famous tourist destination, offering visitors a cocktail of tropical weather, pristine beaches and interesting cultural attractions. The cities of Kingston, largest town and capital, or Montego Bay, biggest resort town, are exciting places full of cultural sights such as the National Gallery and an array of plantation-era mansions known as Great Houses. Inland, Jamaica's Blue Mountains produce some of the world's best coffee, while offering the perfect backdrop for hiking trails for adventure-seekers.
Officially the Commonwealth of Jamaica, Jamaica is an island nation of the Greater Antilles in the Caribbean Sea, about 145 kilometres (90 mi) south of Cuba. The third largest in the Caribbean, the island is 234 kilometres (145 mi) in long and up to 80 kilometres (50 mi) wide. Once a Spanish possession known as Santiago, it became an English, and later a British, colony in 1655, known as "Jamaica", to achieve full independence in 1962 but remains a Commonwealth realm, where Queen Elizabeth II is the current head of state and Queen of Jamaica. With nearly 3 million inhabitants, Jamaica is the third most populous english-speaking country in America - after the USA and Canada.
