Cinnamon Hill offers a quintessential golf experience while protecting a rich cultural and natural environment. From Hank Smedley’s original 1969 design to von Hagge and Baril’s brilliant 2001 redesign, this setting is preserved for future generations. A few highlights:
- On the second tee: your club swings toward historic Rose Hall Great House.
- Near the fourth tee-box: a centuries-old burial plot for the family of English poet Elizabeth Barrett Browning.
- Winding through the course: an ancient aqueduct used to grind sugar cane in the plantation era.
- Near the 15th green: a gentle waterfall, site of an exciting scene in the James Bond movie Live and Let Die.
- Occupying majestic preeminence: Cinnamon Hill Great House, the second home of Johnny Cash and June Carter Cash for 30 years.
Course designers von Hagge and Rick Baril designed Cinnamon Hill with elevations that give the sense of both coastal and tropical inland golf. At Cinnamon Hill you’ll experience the best of Jamaica golf — the cool ocean spray on your cheeks as you putt on seaside greens and wind whistling through the pines as you tee-off on the 17th hole, 350 feet above the turquoise Caribbean sea. This is a test you will enjoy, enchanting panoramas framing your every shot.
