Golfing in St. Thomas
As written by our friends at the Mahogany Run Golf Course (www.mahoganyrungolf.com):
"For golfers, the thrill of a lifetime awaits at Mahogany Run Golf Course - a Caribbean resort course rich in tropical foliage, exciting and challenging greens and spectacular vistas! The 14th hole of Mahogany Run - perched on a cliff 200 feet above a rocky inlet of the Atlantic Ocean and commanding an unlimited view of the sea and neighboring U.S. and British Virgin Islands - may well be one of the most photographed and among the most challenging of par-3 holes in the world.
Designed by George and Tom Fazio and opened in 1980, Mahogany Run has attracted thousands of visitors, golfers and non-golfers, celebrities and Presidents alike – to its challenging and exciting greens. Carved and blasted out of native Blue-Bit stone resulting in an area of land just less than 100 acres, Golf Digest proclaimed that its creation was more of an engineering marvel than an architectural one. As you stand on the 14th tee box and feel the pounding surf between you and the 14th green, it is understandable why there have been no other attempts to build a golf course on St. Thomas.
Despite its friendly length of just over 6,000 yards, Mahogany Run is a cunning challenge that yields par-70 grudgingly. Rising and falling over a gentle valley from 80 to 200 feet above sea level; players that exchange distance for accuracy will be richly rewarded. Open 7 days a week this resort course caters to our devoted local clientele as well as to the daily or weekly (traveling) guest by offering over one-hundred complete new sets of left- and right-handed Taylor Made and Cobra rental golf clubs for men and women, in addition to offering daily cruise-ship passenger and weekly hotel guest tournaments and several walk-in golf clinics for all levels of golfers. Their Top-100 award-winning 1000-square foot Pro Shop also features name-brand resort sportswear, a large selection of logo’d hats, gloves, towels and golf balls as the perfect gift to take home to your golfing friends or family!
