Consistently ranked one of the top golf courses in the world, the classic Robert Trent Jones course at Half Moon is sculpted out of the foothills of the western Jamaican coastline, and has an international reputation for being challenging and breathtaking. A member of Jack Nicklaus' "Great Golf Resorts of the World," Half Moon has hosted a number of prestigious tournaments including the Jamaica Open Golf Championship, the Dunhill Cup Final of the Americas, and the Red Stripe Pro-Am.
With 7,119 yards of difficult driving areas, plenty of bunkering, and great undulating greens, this course puts up a challenge. Among its unforgettable holes is the 535-yard third hole and the relatively short, 362-yard fourth hole. With four tee markers on every hole, scratch golfers and beginners will find an enjoyable challenge as they tackle the Robert Trent Jones' design and the ever-present Caribbean trade winds.
The easy, elegant style of Half Moon is evident throughout the resort's 419 luxurious guest accommodations, including suites and private villas that blend seamlessly into the lush landscape. Elements of European style effortlessly intermingle with the warmth and vibrant colors of Jamaica. The colonial-style resort with 419 rooms, suites and villas is scattered along the mile and a half of white sand beaches, including the two beautiful crescent-shaped beaches that lend the resort its name, "Half Moon."
