Jamaica is one of the Caribbean s best golf destinations and Cinnamon Hill stands out as one of its best golf courses. Along with White Witch, its renowned sister course, Cinnamon Hill Golf Course is a championship 18 at historic Rose Hall Plantation, located just 15 miles east of the Montego Bay International Airport on the northern shore of the island. This gorgeous playing field is a redesign by Robert von Hagge and Rick Baril from 2001 that rambles through the former sugar plantation that was central to Jamaica s history. Cinnamon Hill Golf Course is a tale of two nines. Much of the front nine occupies flat land. On the 2nd hole you play toward the famous Rose Hall Great House. The highlight of the round is a three-hole stretch that skirts the ocean. On the back nine, Cinnamon Hill climbs into the hills near White Witch. In this section of the course, old aqueducts, stone walls and ruins add extra fascination to the game. The back nine is laden with elevation changes and the four finishing holes are all memorable. If Cinnamon Hill s signature par-3 15th hole featuring a waterfall backdrop looks familiar, you likely remember it from the James Bond flick Live and Let Die. By the time you reach the panoramic perch of the 17th tee box, you ll be 350 feet above the Caribbean Sea. When you check in at Cinnamon Hill you have the option of retaining a Caddie Concierge who will offer playing tips, do your bunker raking, and fill you in on the history and lore of Rose Hall Plantation. Practice facilities at Cinnamon Hill Golf Course include a driving range, short game area, and putting green. The clubhouse features a pro shop and a bar where you can get a few snacks. If you are in Jamaica s Montego Bay area, a tee time at Cinnamon Hill is a must.
