I played this course almost every weekend from mid 2004 til we left the island end of 2011. Is only 5620 yards from back tees which I always played. Very dry from Feb thru April. Greenest in the summer and autumn when it is rainier. Lots of birds and iguanas on the course for the nature lover. Need to be... More

There are some nice views on the course but overall a disappointment. It is cart path only and a very dry brown course. The traps are a mix of sand and rocks and many traps have been let go and have turned into a mix of grass and dirt. Because of the lack of water it is very brown grass... More

My husband is writing this review as I don't golf. Your experience at the Buccaneer begins with Kenny and the staff at the pro shop and tiny bar. Kenny makes you feel like an old friend. They are working on getting more food and just added a beverage cart. The Caribbean views, on 4 or 5 holes, NO KIDDING are... More

You can't leave St. Croix without playing golf. What a great place to play with a beautiful view of the ocean!!

A scenic golf course - we were staying at Villa Madeline on the East End so very convenient. My husband and son played 18 holes - they were able to rent clubs and were not charged the non-resort fee. I was charged $4 to have access to the beach and chairs. I had a delightful day at Mermaid Beach while... More

My husband played a round of golf while I spent a few hours on Mermaid Beach with my boys. My husband said he would give this a three compared to the courses he typically plays in the US, given the course conditions (very dry!). However, it was well-maintained. He was able to play by himself and finished in just over... More

I had a choice of either carambola GC OR BUCCANNEER GC- I went with the latter. Very enjoyable course; spectacular ocean views on hole 2 and on back nine. A well played well designed course with challenging lies, mixes of dogleg rights/lefts, just a fun experience. My putting suffered a bit as the greens were super fast! Very dry.The fairways... More

While on a cruise stop, nine in our family took a taxi to the Buccaneer to play golf. What a beautiful place it is. The only negative is that it is a "cart path only" course due to the limited amount of rain the island gets. With the shallow root system, the grass couldn't take constant cart traffic. As a...

What could be more Fun than to enjoy a round of golf with the great weather and beautiful scenery even if a little liquid sunshine does happen to fall.

I have a home in St. Croix; therefore, I've never stayed at the hotel. I have eaten at both the main restaurant and The Mermaid restaurant. Wonderful food, drinks and desert. You can not go wrong with any meal you order. Beautiful and historic grounds. No dislikes.
