Area & Activities
Seasons in the Cayman Islands

November - March

Escape harsh winters and enjoy Cayman’s brilliant sunshine and a constant pleasant sea breeze. Temperatures range from 77-82 degrees Fahrenheit and beckon visits to enjoy the outdoors. Festivities are plentiful ranging from Pirates Week, a weeklong celebration which includes a parade, fireworks and re-creation of a pirates' landing in the town Harbour, and island-wide Heritage Days highlighting the island's history, produce and locally-cooked cuisine. The resort and destination also feature holiday season festivities and activities, as well as the world-renowned Cayman Cookout, at the culinary capital of the Caribbean.

April - June

Temperatures are in the low 80s and are perfect to usher in the spring season. Residents and locals head to the beach to enjoy traditional camping. This family-style event is island-wide, and tents dot the coastline. The Farmers Market is also in full swing with bushels of fresh tomatoes and greens, which many chefs utilize in their restaurants and at home. The comedy show "Rundown" (which is a term for a stew which has a little bit of everything) begins the first week of May. The popular performance has been running for 21 years and encompasses local events, politics and much more.

July - October

Temperatures are in the low 80s and with children enjoying their summer break, the island takes on a slower, relaxed pace. Exploration and excitement abound with beach adventures, picnics, experiencing the island’s dynamic restaurant scene or attending the amazing Cayman International Film Festival (CayFilm). Brunches, wine tastings and culinary events also abound and are a great opportunity for visitors, families, or friends to gather together.

Golf and Tennis

Please note that routine maintenance will take place June to October. You may contact the Golf Shop at (345) 815-6500 for current conditions.

Hole 1

Medium length Par 4 with water down the right. The favorable target line is the left side of the fairway for the best angle to the green. This hole typically plays into the wind, which could add 2 to 3 clubs on to your second shot.

Hole 2

558 yard Par 5 playing directly into the wind. Water runs down the entire right side and your drive will need to contend with the fairway bunkers on the left. The best play is to lay up to your favorite yardage for your third shot. Accuracy on your approach to the long and narrow green is a must.

Hole 3

Medium length dogleg left Par 4 with water down the entire left side. The winds will typically blow your ball to the right, which is well protected by fairway bunkers.

Hole 4

205 yard Par 3 over water. This hole typically plays downwind and long and left of the green is well-bunkered. Three palm trees guard the right side of the green.

Hole 5

Short Par 4 with water down the left side. Your tee shot will need to favor the right side of the fairway for the best angle into this small green.

Hole 6

Short Par 4 that gives golfers the best option for birdie. Errant tee shots to the right will find the fairway bunker and if you go for the green, beware of the water hazard that comes into play short and left of the green.

Hole 7

601 yard Par 5 that typically plays downwind. Beware of the massive fairway bunker on the left that will catch a lot of balls from players avoiding the water down the right-hand side. The two-tiered green is receptive to a bump-and-run style shot, but avoid the left side of the green and the large collection area.

Hole 8

Medium length Par 4 with mangrove down the entire left side. The right side of the fairway is well-guarded with fairway bunkers.

Hole 9

Island green Par 3 playing 156 yards from the Championship Tees. Winds on this hole will typically be hurting and from left-to-right. Club selection will be key here as the hole location on this huge green can vary your club selection by 4 or 5 clubs.

Monday - Sunday | 7:00 a.m - 5:30 p.m.

The Bunker

The Bunker is home to the only Trackman Golf Simulator in Grand Cayman, providing access to the sport’s leading golf trajectory tool. Trackman is an indoor golf simulator that precisely measures impact and ball flight pattern, helping players to evaluate and perfect their swing. Adding to its “golf radar” performance and offering the same technology used by PGA Tour Professionals, Trackman also presents 80 virtual course and terrain visuals, ranging from Pebble Beach to the Old Course at St. Andrews. The Trackman Golf Simulator is located inside The Bunker and may be reserved by the hour through the Golf Shop.
