About The Venue
Cinnamon Hill Golf Course at Rose Hall
Come experience nature at her most glorious and feel the richness of Rose Hall history when you play this paradise course that wraps itself around lush green mountains before reaching for the kiss of the blue Caribbean Sea.
You will putt alongside the waterfall where, according to local folklore, Elizabeth Barrett Browning penned "How do I love thee, let me count the ways". And there are more than 18 ways to love Cinnamon Hill - from Majestic Blue, the signature hole whose fairway fades into the aquamarine ocean, to the mountaintop tee overlooking the Rose Hall Great House, ancient aqueducts, Johnny Cash's home and James Bond's tropical setting for "Live and Let Die".
Cinnamon Hill's diverse elevations give you the experience of both links and inland golf. Feel the cool ocean spray on your cheeks as you putt on seaside greens, then hear the wind whistling through the pines as you tee-off on the 17th hole, 350 feet above sea-level. This is a test you will enjoy - enchanting panoramas framing your every shot.
From Hank Smedley's original design in 1969 to Hagge and Baril's brilliant redesign in 2001, painstaking care has been taken to ensure that the historic sites, flora and fauna of the Rose Hall Estate are preserved for future generations. This makes your round even more unforgettable - consider:
• On the second tee, your club swings toward the Rose Hall
Great House where Annie Palmer wielded her evil powers
• Close to the fourth tee-box, surrounded by exotic flowers,
is the Barrett's centuries-old burial plot, all family of English poet
• Winding through the course is the ancient aqueduct that was
used to grind sugar-cane in the plantation era. Take a close look at the
supporting pillars and you'll see their year of construction - 1761
• You putt on the 15th green to the sound of a gentle
waterfall, site of an exciting scene in the James Bond movie "Live and Let Die"
• Occupying majestic preeminence is the Cinnamon Hill Great
House, built in the mid-18th Century by Edward Barrett (of the famed Barretts of
Wimpole Street). The property became the second home of Johnny Cash and
June Carter Cash for thirty years.
• Par 71, 6,637-yard layout
