Owner description: Situated on the historic 4,000 acre Rose Hall Estate, and sited on 200 acres of lush greenery and rolling countryside, The White Witch Golf Course is carved from the rolling countryside of Jamaica’s historic Rose Hall Plantation and is an 18-hole championship golf course designed by Robert von Hagge and Rick Baril. This 6,758-yard, Par 71 treasure is named for the plantation’s beautiful but wicked 19th century plantation mistress, Annee Palmer. Legend has it that Annee’s ghost still haunts the estate, creating an alluring mystique that has fascinated island natives and visitors for generations. Winner of the "Jamaica's Best Golf Course" award at the 2015 World Golf Awards, also rated as the #1 Golf Course and #1 in Golf Shop Staff service by Conde Nast Traveler. The White Witch is considered one of the finest golf courses in the Caribbean, characterized by mountainous terrain, cool trade winds, colorful foliage and spectacular ocean views from 16 of its 18 holes.

There is no easing into it at this golf course. Hole #1 smacks you in the face with a fairway on top of a ridge. Elevated tee box makes the fairway look tiny. Don't go left. Don't go right. The most scenic opening hole I have ever played. But it doesn't end there. There is view after view after view on this course. Bring your camera.

Caddy Kevron was an excellent green reader. After a few holes, he even had a feel for my game.

I only wish I had more sunny skies, but the pictures still look great.

Dr. Joe and I are in our 80's.....I was in Jamaica 45 years ago and there was no White Witch. I brought back an akee seed and it grew so big, fruitless for 40 years and now I know why. Everyone should go to White Witch and play that WICKED course in their youth!!!

We have played this course 3 times now and every time it seems to get better. There are ocean views on almost every hole. The layout is perfect. The caddies are great. PERFECT golf experience. Our first year there when we finished we were handed a pewter bag tag with their logo on one side and our names engraved on the other. It is WELL wort the money.

The White Witch Is a tremendous golf course. Challenging layout, greens, fairways....the course is truly a golfer's dream. From the view at the club house to the final shot, we were spellbound by the views. Many holes have panoramic views of the ocean. Make sure your caddie describes the history, as you traverse the lush fairways and speedy greens.
The caddie was very helpful and had great course knowledge....listen to their advise it will save you strokes. Winds off the sea can be tricky, but adds to course challenge. Every hole is unique. The fairway slope and have tremendous risk reward locations.
If you are going to play golf in Jamaica....this is a must.
