    Default CSA - Private Beach Dinner / Golf Fees ??

    So I've read on the message board that the cost of the dinner is $170, however I can't find it on the couples website anywhere. Am I just blind ?

    Another example of something I can't find would be the golf - it says transfers are free, but you have to pay for a caddy and a cart, but I can't find how much ? Does anyone know if you can just hit up the driving range ? I don't know if I'd want to spend 4hours or so golfing when the beach is right there

    Hi AnnArbor and welcome to the Couples family message board. I can't comment on the private dinner but I'll try to help with the golfing fees. When we played Negril Hills back in December, 2008 the caddie fee was about $15 and the cart rental was $37.50. They could have gone up but I can't imagine them changing much since then. We're in good shape so we didn't even rent a cart and walked the course. Funny I don't remember there being a driving range at the course. We just got off the bus, paid the caddie fee, met our caddies and hit the first tee. If you're not going to play a round then why would you want to hit balls at all? Hang out at the beach bar and work on the hummingbird drink to your mouth swing! Just my personal opinion. Enjoy your time in Paradise, aka Swept Away!

    Couples Negril & Couples Swept Away:
    Negril Hills Golf Course
    The 18 hole par 72 course, measuring 6,333 yards, is distinguished by gently undulating fairways, elevated tees and greens, picturesque water hazards and lush tropical vegetation.

    -Caddy is mandatory at $14 per caddy for 18 holes; $7 for 9 holes.
    -Carts are optional at $35 per cart for 18 holes; $17.50 for 9 holes.

    Couples Tower Isle & Couples Sans Souci:
    Sandals Golf & Country Club

    Sandals Golf & 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. .

    Caddies are mandatory
    US$17.00 per caddy for 18 holes walking
    US$12.00 per caddy for 9 holes walking
    US$25.00 per caddy for 18 holes on shared cart
    US$17.00 per caddy for 9 holes on a shared cart
    As caddies are not Sandals employees,
    tips are accepted
    Yamaha carts are optional
    US$40.00 per cart for 18 holes
    US$25.00 for 9 holes
