St Kitts and Nevis listed among world's top 25 islands for golf
St. Kitts and Nevis has been ranked among the Top 25 Islands in the World based on its golf offerings by LINKS Magazine. The US golf magazine said that the Royal St. Kitts was the "Best Course" to play the game and the twin-island nation was ranked in 25th place in the global list that featured six other Caribbean golf destinations.
The twin-island nation of St Kitts and Nevis was among seven Caribbean destinations to be mentioned in the list which included Hispaniola, Bermuda, Puerto Rico, Jamaica, Bahamas and Barbados.
“As a golfer myself, who has played on a number of courses in the Caribbean and around the globe, I’m extremely pleased to see the high quality of our own golf offerings recognised,” stated Senator Ricky Skerritt, the Minister of Tourism & International Transport for St Kitts and Nevis.
The Irie Fields championship golf course which is designed by Ian Woosnam at Kittitian Hill will make its debut in Winter 2014/Spring 2015 and a Tom Fazio championship course at Christophe Harbour is scheduled to open in Winter 2016/Spring 2017.
"This is really good news for our decision to develop our destination with golf as one of our niche target markets, and with our third world-class course scheduled to open this winter. Our golfing visitors typically have a higher than normal per-person-per-day spend, which fits nicely into our strategic shift toward a more upscale tourism product."
The Royal St. Kitts Golf Club was the first Caribbean golf course to receive Audubon Certification for its environmental practices. The course’s natural environment attracts native and migratory birds, making it a beautiful place for golf players to witness the wildlife.
The islands of St Kitts and Nevis are separated by a two-mile channel. Both destinations are home to breathtaking natural landscapes such as white sand beaches fringed with crystal clear turquoise ocean waters, verdant green forests, volcanic peaks, and winding rivers, as well as an abundance of wildlife including birds, turtles and tropical monkeys.
