North Sound Golf Club
The North Sound Golf Club is Cayman’s only 18-hole Championship golf course. The par-71, 6605 yard course has a rating of 73.1 and slope of 139. Challenges abound with the prevailing Caribbean trade winds and with water coming into play on 15 of the 18 holes. However, the five sets of tee boxes allow an enjoyable opportunity for even the novice golfer. The Club is open to the public with daily, twilight and resident rates. You can take advantage of their full-service driving range, have a lesson with a PGA professional or just relax and enjoy the vistas with a cool beverage at the open air bar. Club rentals are available. There are also all-inclusive membership opportunities for individuals, families, corporate teams, seasonal residents and junior golfers.

Named the World’s Best 9-Hole Golf Course by the World Golf Awards, the golf course is open to all golfers and several membership options are available.
