CTI golf question....
...from someone who knows nothing about golf :p
Is there a driving range? And if so, can you go and just hit some balls without playing 9 or 18?
As many time as we've been to CTI, we've never played golf. But a friend of ours, who will be newbies with us this year, asked and we had no idea what the answer was.
The golf course that people from both CTI and CSS play does have a small driving range, not big enough to hit drivers on but can hit short and medium irons. That probably menas nothing to you, but if friend is a golfer, they will understand. I'm sure a person could just go and hit balls on the range and not play the course, but I beleive the shuttle from the resort only goes two times a day. It takes the morning golfers early and then returns in the early afternoon to pickup the morning golfers and drop off afternoon players, and then a third trip to pickup the afternoon group. So your friend would either have to stay the 4 - 5 hours between shuttle runs or pay for a cab for one leg of the trip.
Hi another quick golf question... We read that you have to have a caddie and that it is a nominal fee. What is that fee?????
Yes a caddy is mandatory and I believe the fee is $14 per person.

Couples Tower Isle & Couples Sans Souci:
Upton Golf and Country Club
Upton Golf and Country Club in Oho Rios, Jamaica, is a formidable test characterized by narrow fairways and minuscule, drop-off greens. A par-71 18-hole layout measuring 6502 yards, it stretches out over a verdant, rolling landscape with sweeping views of sparkling sea and mountains cloaked in dense vegetation.
While there are no major forced carries and few fairways bunkers, precision is key; ten holes are flanked by out-of-bounds stakes. Particularly vexing is the unassuming-looking par-3 13th hole on the course, but it packs a wallop with its treacherously shallow green fronted by a steep slope and backed by a hidden bunker. .

We will be at CTI 7/26 -8/1 my boyfriend is a golfer, and I am a beginner....anyone out there interested in making a foursone at the course???
Quick question...is it possible for a person who isn't golfing to "ride along for fun"? My fiance golfs and I don't, but he wants me to come along during one round to "see what it's all about". Is that possible? If so, would we pay for a "shared cart"?
Good question. I recently rode the golf cart w/my DH at callaway gardens in GA and it was a lot of fun. What would the cost be to do that I wonder?
