Acclaimed courses by Tom McBroom and Robert Trent Jones Jr. will test golfers in the inaugural St. Kitts and Nevis Partner Golf Classic.

Two of the Caribbean’s most popular islands are combining forces to host the inaugural St. Kitts and Nevis Partner Golf Classic, May 3 to 7. Presented by LINKS magazine, the 54-hole partner event will be played at Royal St. Kitts Golf Club and Four Seasons Nevis Golf Club.

Entry includes three rounds of tournament play (two at Four Seasons Nevis Golf Club and one at Royal St. Kitts Golf Club); accommodation for four nights in a Deluxe Nevis Peak Room with a private lanai at the Four Seasons Resort Nevis; all meals and beverages; and all ground and ferry transfers between the sister islands of St. Kitts and Nevis. Package rates start from $2,553 (CDN) per player.

Brilliantly remodelled by Canadian architect Tom McBroom, Royal St. Kitts Golf Club put the former British colony on the map of Caribbean golf with its unveiling in 2004. The links-style layout, which McBroom rebuilt on top of a flat and badly irrigated course of the same name near the capital city of Basseterre, includes three thrilling new ocean-side holes on the back nine. Most memorable of all is the par-three 15th, where the green is flanked on both sides with a cascade of bunkers designed to mimic the waves crashing ashore in the background.

The Robert Trent Jones Jr. design at posh Four Seasons Resort Nevis climbs the scenic slopes of Mount Nevis, a dormant volcano rising 3,232 feet from the jungle floor. But distracted golfers will suffer the consequences at a layout that demands steely focus on every hole. The highlight is easily the par-five 15th, where the carry over a chasm from the back tee is a gargantuan 240 yards—and the solace for failure is the island’s best view of the turquoise Caribbean Sea.
