Course Review and Comments

“Not your average golf course, but lots of fun and no crowds”
If you don't take golf too serious and want something more than mini golf but something less than championship golf, the Aruba Golf Club is for you. We had a great time and played the course three times during our 3 week stay. But it's not for everyone. There are no water traps, no manicured greens and no overwatered fairways. Here the goats run free and the major hazards are the cactus. The course which is located on the south end of the island near San Nicholas is only 9 holes but you can play a second round from seriously different tee boxes. The cost is $25 for 9 holes and $35 for 18 which includes the cart. The local rule allows for the use of an astro turf mat on the fairways. So if you bring your own clubs be sure to ask about the mat to save your clubs from damage on the rocky fairways. They do rent clubs and two people can share a set for $10. The greens are sand greens sprayed black and instead of raking the traps you get to rake the greens. The fairways are desert like with little grass and mostly coral rock. The washrooms are in serious need to upgrades and the club house could use a major facelift. You don't need a reservation you just show up. It is so deserted that it looks like it is closed. The days we played there were very few others on the course. We will definitely play again!
