Golf

As the only golf game on the island, Mullet Bay Golf Course offers visitors golfers a chance to swing the sticks in the Caribbean sun. At its best, when the rains have helped green the fairways and soften the turf (there is no irrigation system on the course), Mullet Bay offers you a fun and unpretentious golf experience.

At 6,200 yards, this par-71 course plays around and alongside the Mullet Bay Lagoon. The easiest way to arrange to play the course is through the island's St. Maarten Golf Association, which is made up of volunteers who largely look after the course.

Mullet Bay was once the crowning achievement of golf on St. Maarten. However, the attached 600-room resort and casino was closed indefinitely following the destruction caused by Hurricane Luis in September of 1995. The golf course was reopened and has been running off and on ever since.

There are exciting water-carrying shots, like on the 12th hole.
