Golf at Upton Golf & Country Club
For guests of Couples Tower Isle and Couples Sans Souci, the Upton Golf & Country Club is a golfer’s dream come true. Built in 1951 as a 9 hole course by PK Saunders, the 18-hole par-71 course stretches out over rolling hills of Bermuda grass with striking views of the aqua blue Caribbean and the lush mountain landscape. All of the greens have been recently resurfaced with Tifdwarf Bermuda grass.
Precision is the name of the game on this course. Even without major forced carries and few fairway bunkers, ten holes are flanked by out-of-bounds stakes making each shot a thrilling exercise of skill. Narrow fairways and small drop-off greens add a further level of challenge.
Guests may rent Yamaha golf carts, Adidas golf shoes and Taylor Made RBZ golf clubs at the club's pro shop.
