Sandals Resorts International will acquire the Saint Lucia Golf Club, an 18-hole course considered the island’s premier golf facility, within 30 days said company officials.
The purchase extends the all-inclusive resort firm’s recent Saint Lucia expansion.
SRI officials recently announced plans to launch construction of a fourth Saint Lucia resort, Sandals LaSource, in late 2017. SRI also opened its first over-the-water suites in Saint Lucia at the Sandals Grande St. Lucian resort.
The Saint Lucia Golf Club is located on the island’s northern tip among scenic, rolling hills in Cap Estate. The property encompasses 6,829 yards of green slopes, featuring ponds plus palms and ancient tropical trees. SRI officials describe the par-71 course as “one of the most challenging and beautiful courses in the Caribbean.”
SRI chairman Gordon “Butch” Stewart called the course “a beauty and the only game in town. 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 consulted with Greg Norman—the World Golf Hall of Fame player whom Stewart said designed the championship course at Sandals’ Emerald Bay resort in the Bahamas—in connection with the Saint Lucia purchase.
He added that SRI has “big plans” for the course.
The revamped complex will be renamed the Sandals St. Lucia Golf & Country Club at Cap Estate and is to feature a family entertainment complex, swimming pool, squash and tennis courts, new restaurants and renovated meetings and conference amenities. Construction will begin this summer “in anticipation of the winter season,” said officials.
“We are going to make what is great even better,” Stewart said.
