Mandeville, Jamaica

 
Situated in the quaint town of Mandeville, the Manchester Country Club is not only Jamaica’s oldest golf course but also the Caribbean’s oldest. Although it only has nine greens, it has 18 teeing grounds, assuring even the best golfer stays interested. At par 35, the course can be played by beginners and experts alike. In addition to being the oldest, this Manchester, Jamaica golf course is easily one of the most scenic with beautiful vistas provided by the course’s 2201 foot elevation. As you tee-off, look around at the serene environment of the course and you can almost feel the 140 years of history. The Manchester Golf Club was founded in 1865 among the rolling hills of Manchester, Jamaica and soon after the invention of golf by the Scottish; a course was built in the grounds. It is understood that Thompson updated the course to its present state in 1930 with periodic fine tuning thereafter, as well as planning for 9 additional holes with Robert (Bob) Moote in 1951.
