Cayman Islands Golf

By Jim & Barbara Nicol

The Caymans are 500 miles south of Miami and 150 miles northeast of Jamaica. A British Crown Colony, the group consists of Grand Cayman and, about 80 miles east, Little Cayman and Cayman Brac islands. The cost of living is high because most food and basic necessities must be imported.

Cancun, a Mayan word, means "Pot of Gold." With an average of 240 cloudless days a year, it is little wonder the Maya people came here for a respite from the interior rain forest. Cancun is an island connected to the mainland by two bridges and is the site of several resorts, as well as two golf courses.

Golf can be played on the Pok-Ta-Pok Golf Club course. The name comes from the Mayan language and means "game played with a stick." You can't get more basic than that. The course, designed by Robert Trent Jones, Jr., has a par of 73/74, and reaches a more than respectable 6,721/6,142/5,586 yards. The clubhouse includes a pro shop and a cafeteria serving breakfast and lunch. There is also a new golf facility - the Cesar Park Golf Club. Part of the Cesar Park Beach & Golf Resort, it plays 6,641/6,102/5,246 yards with a par of 72. *
