The Turks and Caicos islands, located in the beautiful Caribbean Sea, are filled with outdoor activities that will please any traveler. This destination offers a luxurious tropical vacation with plenty of time spent in the sunshine and mild weather, and the islands boast of having some of the cleanest and most family-friendly beaches in the Caribbean. One great outdoor activity on the islands is golfing. There are several world-class courses that provide hours of relaxing golf time.
One of the best places for golfing on the island is the Provo Golf Club. A membership to the club would be worthwhile for those who travel to Turks and Caicos frequently, but visitors are also welcome. The club is located on the island of Providenciales and has some wonderful amenities for those who enjoy golf, tennis and other leisure activities. The 18-hole championship course, designed by Karl Litten, is challenging and consistently voted one of the top 10 golf courses in the Caribbean.
The club offers four sets of tees for those at varying golfing levels and also provides TaylorMade clubs for rental. The club has a full-service pro shop, practice areas for putting and chipping, and a bag storage area. There is a club grill for causal meals and lighted tennis courts for when your golf game is finished. Those who wish to make reservations can do so up to 90 days in advance. The club is open daily beginning at 7 a.m. if you want to tee off first thing in the morning. PGA-trained professionals are available for golf instruction for those who would like some training before heading out on the course.
Those who aren’t interested in a club membership can golf at a unique course with a fun history. Waterloo Golf Club, which is built on the grounds of the Office of the Governor on Grand Turk, is a small course worth playing for both beginning golfers and those who’ve been playing for years. It was designed by the governor himself and was built entirely by volunteers. The course is near the beach and located merely yards away from the Cruise Ship Center. It’s important to call ahead as the course has limited space and only allows a certain amount of golfers out at a time. This 9-hole, par-54 course features some beautiful island scenery. Limited club rentals are offered for those who don’t have their own.
After you’ve had some rounds on the golf course, be sure to check out everything else the islands have to offer. Water sports like fishing, boating and kayaking are very popular among travelers who have a taste for adventure. Check out the local cuisine and enjoy some freshly caught seafood that comes in daily from the local fishermen.
