St. Croix: Tennis & Golf


The Virgin Islands are home to four golf courses, one of which is located on St. Thomas. There are no golf courses on St. John or Water Island.

St. Croix – Carambola Golf Course

Carambola Golf Course was built by Laurence Rockefeller and designed by legendary golf course architect Robert Trent Jones. The par-72 course winds through a deep valley. Bright tropical plants, tall palm trees and small lakes make the course very attractive as rolling terrain, wind and some 100 bunkers make for a stern test of golfing skill. Although the course can be quite challenging it does provide options for all skill levels to enjoy. The facilities include a clubhouse, practice putting green, driving range and pro shop. For more information, call (340)778-5638.

St. Croix – Buccaneer Golf Course

The Buccaneer golf course, designed by Bob Joyce, is an 18-hole course that sprawls across much of the resort’s 340 acres. From the hilltop buildings all the way down to the shoreline this course is beautiful and known as one of the most scenic on St. Croix. The attractive site is also very challenging with a par-70 course encompassing 5,810 yards worth of fairways, bunkers and water hazards. Recent renovations include the addition of a three-hole walking course, water station and landscaping improvements.

Buccaneer Golf Course is open to the public. There is a fully stocked pro shop. Tee times should be scheduled at least two days in advance. Golfers may play until sunset. Motorized two-person carts are available and walking the course is permitted. Visit them online for more information: Golf at the Buccaneer

St. Croix – The Reef Golf Course

The Reef is for those golfers less inclined to take on the more challenging 18-hole courses or those looking for a more casual game. The Reef Golf Course, located in Teague Bay, offers nine holes of enjoyable golf. The course spans some 3,100 yards of beautifully maintained fairways and greens. Nestled in a valley below The Reef Villas on the north-eastern end of St. Croix, the course offers a good golfer a moderate challenge, while its open layout also allows beginners to enjoy the game. Both riding and pull carts are available for an additional fee. For more information, call (340) 773-8844.
