Golfing in the Caribbean can be quite an experience. The Provo Golf and Country Club has one of the finest layouts in the islands. Along with its smallish greens, the course is well manicured. If you forget your clubs, don't worry; you can rent a set that will accommodate your game. After a challenging round be sure to grab a drink or quick bite in the clubhouse that overlooks the 18th green. Usually, flamingos are spotted at the fifth green. Bring your "A" game, as this is truly a shot-maker's course.
