Sandals Resorts International (SRI) today announced it is in the process of purchasing Saint Lucia Golf Club, the island’s premier golfing facility, and only 18-hole course. Acquisition of the course is expected to be complete within 30 days, marking a moment of significant expansion in Saint Lucia by SRI. Earlier this year, SRI introduced its groundbreaking over-the-water suite concept to Saint Lucia, debuting the island’s first over-the-water bungalows and serenity chapel at Sandals Grande St. Lucian, one of three Sandals Resorts in the destination. The company plans to begin its fourth resort, Sandals LaSource Saint Lucia later this year.
The Saint Lucia Golf Club is located on the northern tip of the island, set within the scenic rolling hills of Cap Estate and offering 6829 yards of sprawling green slopes, dotted with attractive ponds, swaying palms and ancient tropical trees. The par-71 course is considered one of the most challenging and beautiful courses in the Caribbean.
The SRI group is very keen on this new acquisition. “It’s a beauty and the only game in town,” said SRI Chairman Gordon “Butch” Stewart. “We are thrilled to bring this gorgeous course into our growing Saint Lucian family of offerings and to share it with the people of Saint Lucia and our guests alike.”
Stewart, who consulted with partner and World Golf Hall of Famer Greg Norman, designer of the championship course at Sandals Emerald Bay, says big plans are in store for the facility. “We are going to make what is great even better,” said Stewart. Plans for the course – which will be renamed Sandals St. Lucia Golf & Country Club at Cap Estate - include a family entertainment complex, swimming pool, squash and tennis courts, new restaurants and improved meetings and conference amenities. The improvements and additions are set to begin this summer in anticipation of the winter season
