“If you watch a game, it’s fun. If you play it, it’s recreation. If you work at it, it’s golf.”
– Bob Hope
Rated as one of the Caribbean’s finest, the Tryall Golf course is both challenging and beautiful with a fascinating heritage. The Tryall Golf course is located 2 miles (10 minutes) from the Round Hill Hotel and Villas.
This 18-hole, par 72 course, has been named as one of the most beautiful golf courses in the world. This tricky, wind-swept course offers stunning views, unique natural hazards and challenging greens. With nine holes bordering the Caribbean and nine that snake through verdant hillsides, Tryall offers stunningly divers topography.
The signature par-three 4th hole incorporates the natural challenges of the Caribbean Sea and the Flint River, while the memorable par-four 7th hole provides a dramatic tee-shot through the stone pillars of the historic aqueduct that feeds the adjacent waterwheel. The Tryall Club has played host to such prestigious international events as the Johnnie Walker World Championship, last won at Tryall by Fred Couples in 1995.
Today, Tryall offers everything you could want from a 21st century course. Audubon certified since 2010, extensively rebuilt and improved it is now of a higher-quality than ever, complete with modern irrigation systems. The design that has been from its original conception uses natural hazards unique to the location, such as the trade winds – with the addition of an ocean-side fourth hole to create a new challenge for every golfer.
Round Hill Hotel & Villas offers complimentary shuttle to and from this golf course at 9AM and 1PM daily except on Sundays.
As part of their week long fund raising and charitable activities, Hanover Charities will be having a Sugar Cane Scramble at the Tryall Golf Club.
A golf scramble is a format for a golf tournament where two or more players form a team, with the rules emphasizing fun without the pressure of keeping individual scores. Each player hits a tee shot on each hole, but everyone plays from the spot of the best shot, subject to certain criteria. Rules for playing in a scramble are informal, with tournament organizers modifying basic rules as they wish.
