The Caribbean’s Best Golf Course in 2019: Old Quarry at Santa Barbara Beach & Golf Resort, Curaçao

March 23, 2019 Golf Tourism No Comments Email Email

Santa Barbara Beach & Golf Resort’s Old Quarry golf course is the #1 rated course in the Caribbean, according to USA Today 10Best Readers’ Choice Awards for 2019. The recognition marks the second consecutive year Old Quarry has claimed the top spot on the USA Today 10Best ballot.

Located at the AAA Four Diamond-rated Santa Barbara Beach & Golf Resort on the southern Caribbean island of Curaçao, Old Quarry presents 18 championship holes imagined by iconic designer Pete Dye. Players of all levels will be challenged as they navigate Old Quarry’s varying degrees of elevation, rolling greens that reach across the foothills of Curaçao’s Tafelberg Mountain, and island breezes that sweep in from the bordering Caribbean Sea and Spanish Water Bay.

“It is humbling to have Old Quarry recognized by USA Today 10Best for the second year in a row,” said Rob de Bekker, general manager at Santa Barbara Beach & Golf Resort. “Understanding that our course is nominated for this award by some of the industry’s top editors and experts is an honor in and of itself. To be selected as the #1 course in the Caribbean by those who have experienced Old Quarry first hand makes this even more notable for us.”

Old Quarry is open for play by resort guests, Curaçao locals, and other island visitors. Group clinics and private lessons are available while golf-focused hotel packages are bookable via Santa Barbara Beach & Golf Resort. Among those packages is Santa Barbara’s Unlimited Golf Experience.

Priced from $139.50 per person per night (based on double occupancy), the Unlimited Golf Experience includes the following for travel between April 1 and December 24, 2019:

  • Luxury accommodations with complimentary room upgrade
  • Unlimited golf at Old Quarry
  • Old Quarry memorabilia valued at up to $75 per guest, including golf gear and apparel
  • Welcome amenity
  • Early check-in/late check-out

Santa Barbara Beach & Golf Resort’s Old Quarry rounds out the hotel’s extensive list of activities and amenities for active travelers. Additional options include ATV tours, jet ski tours, snorkeling and scuba diving, mountain biking, hiking, tennis, SUP Yoga, and more. The resort’s 350 luxe guest rooms and suites provide an ideal retreat to recharge at the end of each day. Santa Barbara’s multiple dining venues offer ample food and drink selections to stay fueled for an active getaway.
