About
Cinnamon Hill's diverse elevations offer a great combination of both links style and inland golf. Feel the cool ocean spray on your cheeks as you play alongside the Caribbean Sea, then hear the wind whistling through the pines as you tee-off on holes 16 and 17, 350 feet above sea-level. On the closing stretch, tight fairways are dotted with treacherous, strategically placed bunkers, inspiring the most competitive player’s best game. This is a test you will enjoy - enchanting panoramas framing your every shot.The Caribbean Sea can be viewed from 17 of the 18 holes and the one hole where it’s absent a majestic waterfall awaits your errant tee shot. The waterfall is the site where they filmed James Bond’s Movie Live and let Die and is only one component of the great history that is on the course. On hole #14 the winter home of country music superstar Johnny and June Cash can be seen from the fairway. As an added enhancement, one of the course’s biggest assets happens to be its expert caddies. Cinnamon Hill caddies are listed among "The Best In The World" by Golfer Magazine. Each caddy is expertly trained and ready to help you improve your game.Come, experience Cinnamon Hill and add your own story to its intriguing history. This challenging par 72 layout which plays just over 6800 yards from the tips has 4 sets of tees that offer a great experience for all levels of players from juniors to seniors.Proud Host of the 2010 LPGA Tour event ‘The MOJO 6”Rated by Golfweek as a Best Tour Courses you can play.

After arriving at 8am for an 8.20 tee time my wife was going to come around in the cart as a non golfer. She was aparently dressed incorrectly, however she had a ronishe skort and ronishe ladies golf top on that she had bought from my golf shop! Yes I'm a PGA pro with my own shop in the UK. This clothing was accepted at Half moon Golf and The Tryall Club earlier this week. The staff member didn't seem to u dersyand this and just kept trying to sell us clothing. There was also no real welcome or structure to how playing golf here works ie rental clubs, carts etc

It just seemed we were made very unwelcome so we walked back out.

The other golf courses out here in Jamaica make you feel like Kings and Queens just not this one it's like it's hassle for them that your actually coming to play.

The course looked great as well so such a shame

One of the prettiest course I’ve ever played. From 9 goes down to the beach with some shots over the water and the ruins of the old plantation dotted around. In the back nine you go into the Jamaican forests with big undulating, gullies and water: very challenging - bring plenty of balls.
Good pro shop, driving range etc. Very nice club rentals too. Would play again in a heartbeat.

Don’t let the name fool you. This is a tough track with both 9’s playing 2 games. The front is pretty open with wind being a factor. The back, you better keep the ball in play.

Played twice in 5 days. Played early ( first one out) so I can’t tell you about speed of play.

Pro shop… well stocked. We stayed at a preferred resort so the cost per round was 120 plus 20 extra for the caddie. Range balls included.

Putting green was true to the course. Everything will break to the water. HARD! No matter what you think you see. Down hill will roll a solid 10. Up hill you better hit it.

Take a caddie. Well worth it. Saved me at least 10 strokes 1st round. Played to my cap (13). Second round ended up 7 over par. Besides the 20 you prepay I threw him (Michael, take Michael!) another 30 after the round.

Front nine pretty open with wind coming into play. Especially on the ocean holes. Fairways aren’t tight, ball sits up nicely. Rough could be thick in spots. As it should be. You can bump n run quite a few holes but you’ll also need to carry water, grass waste areas on a few.

Back nine is truly a shot making nine. Much tighter as it runs through forest. I think I used irons off the tee on 8 of 9 on the back.
A lot more carrys on the back and the fairways will slop hard down the mountain side.

Course finishes with a par 4, 5 and 5 so if you play smart you can end your day on a high note.

Enjoy.

We have played this course many times over the years and this time we found it to be in superb condition except where parts of some of the greens had suffered from flooding after storms. Every round was enjoyable but the speed of play and observance of basic golf etiquette by some players could and should have been enforced/guided by their caddies and marshals although the latter were seldom in evidence. The club allows 5 balls to go out and when questioned on this, as it slows everything down, the starter said that he couldn't upset the guests!! Furthermore caddies for the 5 balls were reluctant to suggest that 2, 3 and 4 ball groups should be allowed through. At the other end of the scale we met a few single players whose caddies were bullying groups ahead by driving buggies aggressively up to the next tee or by allowing the player to hit into the group ahead to assist their player to complete a round in record time. Time for management to act!

Very average experience. My caddie seemed like she wanted to be anywhere other than on the course with me and barely spoke to me other than to give me shot info. Course was in okay condition but there was a lot of debris on the fairways from the rain 24 hours earlier and the bunkers were unplayable. The welcome was okay but the clubs I rented were supposed to come with a free sleeve of chrome soft balls but I was told they were out of stock and gave me a sleeve of pinnacle distance balls instead. I made the point that there is a massive difference between tour quality balls and the cheapest in the shop but they refused to even give me 3 of their branded mid range balls as an alternative.

Great course. Challenging but still some getable holes for high handicappers. Beautiful ocean front holes on the front and hillside on the back. And the service is awesome! Great 19th hole bar with fantastic meat pies. The other course I played (Half Moon) still blames COVID for not opening their 19th hole bar.

This was the most beautiful course I’ve ever played on. The back nine is a jungle. Caddies there were amazing. Everything about this course was awesome from the service to the scenery.

We were staying at the Iberostar Hotel and they recommended Cinnamon Hill. We were not disappointed. The staff helped us rent clubs and set us up for our outing. Our caddy Howard James was a fantastic guide and helped tremendously. Howard James mixed in expert help on the course and was great to talk to and have a laugh. All the staff were friendly and helpful. I was surprised the course went from a par three over the ocean, around and aqueduct and up into the mountains. There were amazing views with several holes that were highly elevated. I would highly recommend this place to anyone interested in golf and is set up for all skill levels.
