Set on a former sugar plantation in Jamaica, Hilton Rose Hall Resort & Spa has always been a sweet getaway for golfers. But now the property is even more tempting, thanks to four- and seven-night stay-and-play packages that include not only meals and plush accommodations but also carts and caddy fees at Cinnamon Hill Golf Course, the resort’s acclaimed layout on Montego Bay. Redesigned by vaunted architect Robert von Hagge, the course opens with nine holes along the water before stretching its green fingers into the coastal hills.
The 17th hole, already famous for the aqueduct ruins that run behind it, has just been lengthened from a par-4 to a stout par-5, with an elevated tee that affords panoramic views of the cobalt sea. As for the 15th hole, it remains unchanged, and that’s a good thing: The waterfall that spills behind the green is the same one that was featured in the James Bond movie Live and Let Die. From $953 for four nights and three rounds. www.rosehallresort.com
