Golfers, take it from us—there’s no better place to hit a birdie or a hole-in-one than on a tropical golf course of the Turks and Caicos Islands, surrounded by a fun and welcoming golfing community. Rounds of golf in these sunny islands almost never get rained out, thanks to the gorgeous weather we experience year-round. Here’s everything you need to know about golfing in the Turks and Caicos.
Golf Courses in Turks and Caicos
There is only one pro-level golf course in the Turks and Caicos: the Royal Turks and Caicos Golf Course on Providenciales.
Just a five-minute drive from Grace Bay Beach on the way to Leeward, this 18-hole course features towering palm trees, idyllic lagoons, and carefully manicured greens that stay lush all year. Book a round of golf here and you’ll likely spot the herons and flamingos that like to spend time by its shallow ponds.
The course has been around since 1992 (some might remember it as the Provo Golf Club) and has won several awards. In fact, it’s a frequent chart-topper of USA Today’s list of the Best Caribbean Golf Courses.
A Golf Community That Feels Like Home
Perhaps even better than the stunning course and facilities at the Royal Turks and Caicos Golf Course is the golf community that frequents these fairways. And it’s not just a boys club—the golf club welcomes men and women to play, with women competing in all tournaments and a Ladies Golf Section that meets weekly.
If you’re looking to make the Turks and Caicos your home base, the golf club offers memberships so you can enjoy a round and make the most of the facilities anytime you like. The Royal Turks and Caicos Golf Course includes a full-service pro shop, practice warm-up net, bag-store, flood-lit tennis and more. And after a game, you can visit the popular 19 Bar and Restaurant, which serves breakfast and lunch, while catching up with friends.
Do I Need to Be a Pro to Play?
Beginner golfers and veterans are both welcome at the golf course in Turks and Caicos. In fact, the Royal Turks and Caicos Golf Course is great for golfers of all ages and skill levels. In the summer months, the club also offers golf camps for kids. Another benefit to playing in the Turks and Caicos? The lack of crowds. The islands are a low-density tourism destination, meaning you can take your time on the course without having to worry about traffic on the course throwing you off of your game.
Renting Golf Clubs in Turks and Caicos
You can certainly rent a set of golf clubs on Providenciales if you don’t want to travel with your own equipment. The Royal Turks and Caicos Golf Club rents out clubs for games for $70 USD for 18 holes. This goes down to $50 for games starting after 1:30 p.m.
You’ll also want to keep the club’s smart/casual dress code in mind. The club does not allow:
- jeans or denim
- tee shirts
- tanks tops
- scoop necks
- halter tops
- muscle shirts
- jogging shorts
- exercise outfits or swimwear
Haven’t packed the right outfit? The club’s pro shop sells apparel, as well as golf clubs and other equipment you may have left back home.
