In an era that focuses on “bigger is better,” leave it to Greg Norman to accomplish some of his best work on an oasis just 16 miles long. In 2006, the object of The Shark’s attention was the tiny Caribbean island of Anguilla. The Australian golf legend believed Anguilla’s 33 remarkable beaches would be the perfect complement to a golf course design framed by the Caribbean Sea.
Cuisinart Golf Resort & Spa is perched on Rendezvous Bay, one of the picturesque talcum-white beaches that so inspired Norman. Today, golfers thrill to Norman’s 7,000-yard 18-hole Anguilla layout that many consider one of his finest designs. That’s a mouthful when you realize Norman prolific signature is found on 78 courses around the world.
Today’s Cuisinart Golf Club delivers immaculate conditions amidst an amazing array of photo-worthy golf holes. Golfers new to Anguilla discover a vacation environment in which the sound of ocean waves, views of neighboring St. Maarten, and an exemplary standard of service is par for the course.
Cuisinart – One of the Great Golf Resorts in the World
In the decade since Anguilla’s only golf course opened its doors, Cuisinart’s reputation has grown on an international level. The course’s long-running goal of excellence culminated this past year with Cuisinart’s inclusion into the Great Golf Resorts in the World.
On a more personal level, golfers love that even in tourism high season, Cuisinart hosts on average around 75 rounds per day. Compare that number to what golfers are used to back home, and Cuisinart’s intimacy blanketed in an island setting contributes to an unforgettable Caribbean golf experience.
Cuisinart’s paradise ambiance is immediately felt as golfers arrive at a gated entrance featuring palm trees, exquisite landscaping, the Caribbean’s largest hydroponic farm, and an award-winning spa. At every turn golfers are met with tranquility, luxury, and Anguilla’s distinctive island beauty.
Incomparable First Impression
Nothing is left to chance as golfers enter Cuisinart’s magnificent two-tiered clubhouse. Before or after your round, make time to venture up to the second floor terrace, sip a cocktail, and take in the spectacular aerial view that sweeps all the way to St. Maarten.
Once you hit the course, the highlights are a virtual Caribbean feast. The first hole, a 384-yard par four, doglegs left and offers a two-fold view of the Caribbean Sea and a vista of St. Maarten. If you’re a beach lover, the 423-yard, par four 16th hole features an amazing view of Rendezvous Bay. The 430-yard, par four 18th hole provides golfers one of the best finishing holes in the Caribbean. With water on the left and the spectacle of Cuisinart’s dramatic Mediterranean-style clubhouse as a backdrop, the image of the 18th hole is a photogenic closer you’d consider framing above the fireplace back home.
After experiencing Cuisinart Golf Resort & Spa, it’s likely you’ll tip your hat to Greg Norman. On the petite island of Anguilla, The Shark was right to believe that good things come in small packages.
