    Default CTI golf question....

    ...from someone who knows nothing about golf

    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.

    Thanks!

    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.

    Driveinduo - This is from the FAQ section of the message board. Are you staying at CTI or CSS? If not, here's the link for the CN/CSA golf info: http://couples.com/10FAQ.htm#What_go...there_any_fees

    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. .

    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
    Nike Club rentals are available
    $45.00 for 18 holes or $30.00 for 9 holes
    All rentals available in ladies and gents, left and right handed
    Nike Shoe rentals: US$16.00 (includes free pair of socks)


    Hope this helps!

    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?
