US Virgin Islands Golf
• Carambola Golf & Country Club | St. Croix island
Robert Trent Jones, Sr. (1966) 18 holes - 6,845 yds - Par 70
Laid out by Robert Trent Jones Sr. on the former Laurence Rockefeller estate in the mid 1960s, Carambola Golf & Country Club has remained one of the top Caribbean golf destinations. The course extends over a former sugar plantation on rolling terrain in a lush tropical valley in the northwest of the island of St Croix and incorporates four of the best par threes you could care to imagine anywhere.
• Mahogany Run Golf Club | St. Thomas island
George & Tom Fazio (1980) 18 holes - 6,008 yds - Par 70
Brothers Armour commissioned George and Tom Fazio to lay out the Mahogany Run course into a compact site on the north side of St Thomas island, near Magen’s Bay.
When inaugurated in 1980, one of the leading golf magazines described it as “more of an engineering marvel than an architectural one as the course had to be carved and blasted into an area of land just less than 110 acres” and the steep hills and tumbling valleys were certainly difficult to tame. Winding narrow fairways demand accuracy, the key word here.
Home of the famous Devil’s Triangle, Mahogany Run’s Signature 13th, 14th and 15th holes. So challenging is the trio that anyone who plays all three without a penalty stroke is awarded a special “I Survived the Devil’s Triangle” certificate in the pro shop !
St. Thomas is a 90 min. hight speed ferry service from St. Croix
The Virgin Islands are the eastern island group of the Leeward Islands, East of Puerto Rico, which are the northern part of the Lesser Antilles, which form the border between the Caribbean Sea and the Atlantic Ocean. Politically, the eastern islands form the British Virgin Islands and the western ones form the United States Virgin Islands.
The US Virgin Islands consist of the main islands of Saint Croix, Saint John, and Saint Thomas, along with the much smaller but historically distinct Water Island, and many other surrounding minor islands. Formerly the Danish West Indies, they were sold to the United States by Denmark in the Treaty of the Danish West Indies of 1916. They are classified by the UN as a Non-Self-Governing Territory, and are currently an organized, unincorporated United States territory.
St. Croix is the largest of the U.S. Virgin Islands, 28 by 7 miles (45 by 11 km). However, the territory's capital, Charlotte Amalie, is located on Saint Thomas. Point of interest on the island inlcude Christiansted National Historic Site urban colonial development and features 18th and 19th century structures in the heart of Christiansted, capital of the former Danish West Indies. Other attractions are Buck Island Reef National Monument, Green Cay National Wildlife Refuge, as well as former Sugar Cane plantations and Rhum distilleries.
