St. Thomas: Golf & Tennis


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.

Mahogany Run Golf Course

Mahogany Run, opened in 1980, is a challenging course designed by George and Tom Fazio. There are 18 beautiful holes laid out on a 6,022 yard, par-70 championship course in a lovely valley overlooking the Atlantic Ocean. The most well known holes at Mahogany Run are the 13th-15th. They make up the spectacular “Devil’s Triangle”. So challenging are these three holes that anyone that plays all three without a penalty stroke is awarded a special certificate! Informal scratch tournaments go on throughout the year where visitors can play against local players. Mahogany Run is open to the public and is accommodating to hotel and cruise ship guests. Groups are welcome and special tournaments with prizes can be arranged. The pro shop is fully stocked with brand name merchandise including Ashworth, Izod, Monterrey Club, Callaway and Gear. Quality rental clubs are available.

Note: Mahogany Run Golf Course has been closed since September 2017.

Herman E. Moore Golf Course

There are no holes or facilities at the Herman E. Moore Golf Course. The course is located at the University of the Virgin Islands and is open to the public. It is used by golfers to practice putting and driving.
