Golfing in Paradise: StKittsMarriott Fall Golf Promo.
I’ve visited some of the greatest golf courses of my generation–Pebble Beach, Torrey Pines and, most recently, The Royal St. Kitts, and I haven’t played a one of them.
My jaunts to the first two were curiosity based, holdovers from my teen days in western Pennsylvania when golf was my mistress and The Fresh Prince (of Bel-Air) was my mentor. St. Kitts, on the other hand, caught me by surprise, awakening a piece of my soul that’s laid dormant for nearly 20 years.
Originally built in ’76 and renovated in 2004 by famed architect Thomas McBroom of Toronto, Canada, The Royal St. Kitts Golf Club is an 18-hole championship course, featuring two full holes on the Caribbean Sea and three complete holes on the Atlantic Ocean. The course is considered one of the most scenic and well conditioned courses in the Caribbean.
Surveying the 125 acre course from my patio table at the clubhouse, I contemplated my return to golf as I washed down my cheeseburger with a Ting-no-Sting. I made a vow that day that when I returned home I’d start working on my game, so that the next time I visited the island I could play a round or three at The Royal St. Kitts.
Fast forward two months: my golf game is still non-existent (New England springs can be cruel); however, my desire to get my game in shape to play The Royal St. Kitts is still strong, especially after I found out about the Sun, Sea and Golf package from the St. Kitts Marriott, which includes:
- Overnight accommodations at St. Kitts Marriott Resort
- Unlimited complimentary green fees at Royal St. Kitts Golf Club
- Breakfast daily
The offer is for stays from Sept. 1 to October 31, 2o12 and rates start at $159 per room, per night, based on double occupancy. I’ve got my finger’s crossed that I can make it back to the island (this time with Beth) to play the course. If not, it will be another long New England winter, sipping boat drinks and setting up the indoor putting green by the fireplace.
