Cinnamon Hill Golf Course at Rose Hall is a well-rated and always popular layout. This tree-lined and open parkland course takes you on an expansive journey through parkland, then down to the ocean at 5, 6 and 7 for some stunning beachside holes.

The back-nine of this testing Von Hagge layout is routed through the jungle that encircles Cinnamon Hill Great House (a former residence of singer Johnny Cash). Here you'll find some notable elevation changes on several holes. Plenty of golfing challenge, as is usual with a Von Hagge layout, and usually good upkeep all contribute to the appeal of this course.

Did you know?

Winding through the golf course is the ancient aqueduct that was used to grind sugar-cane in the plantation era. Take a close look at the supporting pillars and you'll see their year of construction - 1761.

The golf course circles around Cinnamon Hill Great House (as distinct from nearby Rose Hall Great House). Cinnamon Hill was built in the mid-18th century by Edward Barrett (of the famed Barretts of Wimpole Street). The property became the second home of Johnny Cash and June Carter Cash for thirty years.
