Magdalena Grand Beach & Golf Resort in Tobago (www.MagdalenaGrand.com) provides juniors aged 12-17 with free golfing, making it the perfect destination for families seeking to introduce their children to the sport or families who already play together. Junior golfers must be accompanied by an adult to pay for use of a cart (US$32). A local golf pro is available upon request to offer lessons and the driving range and chipping greens are also available for use by juniors.
The Tobago Plantations Golf Course is a Par-72, 18-hole course woven into the landscape of Tobago Plantations Estate, a gated community of luxury villas, condos and bungalows. The recent US$2 million refurbishment project, which was completed in December 2013, upgraded the course to Golf Course Superintendents Association of America (GCSAA) standards. In addition to enhancements on the course, the resort purchased new golf carts, pro shop merchandise, and food and beverage equipment.
Opened in 2001, the golf course has been modified to utilize indigenous plants and increase the habitat diversity for wildlife. There are characteristic pot bunkers sunk into the greensides and a Par 4 that heads out on the peninsula where the Atlantic Ocean breeze comes into play and golfers can enjoy panoramic views of Scarborough, the capital of Tobago. The course played host to the 2004 Senior European Tour.
The Tobago Plantations Golf Course is a PGA-designed course created by Bob Hunt and Marcus Blackburn of PGA Golf Management Ltd., a design, development and management arm of the Professional Golfers’ Association of Great Britain and Ireland. The course meets Championship standards and is a certified member of the Audubon Cooperative Sanctuary System, an environmental program offered by Audubon International. In addition, the course has received certification for its environmental planning.
