The Tryall Club

4-PLUS: Must play course - excellent standard; worthy of 4½ stars.

Est. 1959

The Tryall Club is home to a championship golf course that ranks with the best in Jamaica. This tree-lined and open parkland layout provides a wonderful test for your all-round game, with many attractive, skilfully crafted and challenging holes to enjoy. A must play if you are in Jamaica.

There's plenty of water in play on the opening four holes. A tee-to-green tee shot is required at the par-3 2nd. Don't stray left or right at the water flanked par-5 3rd, and enjoy every minute as you play the par-3 4th, with the small Flint River to clear in front of the green. Hugging this iconic hole's leftside is the beach and Caribbean Sea.

Another noteworthy hole is the par-4 7th. Here the course incorporates an aqueduct, which once supplied the sugar and coconut plantation’s waterwheel. You play your tee-shot right through the aqueduct’s stone pillars.

Less water and more elevation change characterises the back-nine, plus some occasional fabulous vistas from the higher sections of the layout. The testing par-3 12th marks the highest point on the course.

Stay&Play at The Tryall Club: luxury onsite rental villa accommodation available, see Where2Stay section below.

Tournaments

The Masters: The 88th Masters Tournament at Augusta National sees LIV golfer Jon Rahm defend his title against the world’s best. Pressing hard will be world No.1 and 2022 champion Scottie Scheffler and world No.2 Rory McIlroy (April 11-14).

Chevron Championship: the women’s major championship season gets underway for the second year at its new Carlton Woods home outside Houston, Texas. World No.2 Lilia Vu defends (April 18-21).

Who's Who

Nelly Korda: records a perfect start to 2024 with four wins out of her last four appearances on the LPGA Tour, a feat last achieved by Lorena Ochoa in 2008. Korda's win at the T-Mobile Match Play brought up her 12th LPGA Tour victory.

Scottie Scheffler: narrowly missed out on matching Nelly Korda’s three-in-three, when he placed second at the Houston Open. This followed back-to-back wins at the Arnold Palmer Invitational and The Players. Like Korda, he remains comfortably ahead in the official world golf rankings.

Marco Simone Golf & Country Club

Marco Simone Golf & Country Club: With a clubhouse that might befit a Roman Emperor, and a golf course to match, you can be sure of a memorable outing at Rome's most talked about golf facility.

Jim Fazio's original layout was much changed to create a modern Ryder Cup course ... now one of the Eternal City's (and Italy's) most revered.
