A warm, balmy
climate and a remarkable landscape make Aruba an ideal environment
for golfing. With the recent construction of Tierra
del Sol, designed by Robert Trent Jones II, the island's
natural potential has been carefully groomed to create a
at the northwestern tip of the island and conveniently located
to the island's major resorts and hotels, Tierra del Sol
is an 18-hole, par 71 course that can hold its own with any
other course in the world. There is more to this course than
its meticulously designed and maintained greens, however.
The Robert Trent Jones group, appreciating the natural resources
of the island, has managed to pair peerless course design
with a celebration of Aruba's wildlife. From the wild, green
parakeets on the organ-pipe cactus to the lizards and salamanders
that bask on rock formations, the wildlife of Tierra del
Sol has become an attraction in its own right. A saltwater
salina on the 4th hole is home to several exotic bird species.
Wild burrows graze alongside the par-5 fifth hole, and Aruba's
endangered burrowing owls perch atop the small coral caves
near the par-3 sixth hole. Afterward, golfers can relax at
Tierra del Sol's clubhouse and swimming pool, or take in
the panoramic views from the restaurant.
Aruba's other major golf attraction,
the Aruba Golf Club, a nine-hole course offers enthusiasts
the opportunity to play the most unusual golf course in the
Caribbean. With oiled sand greens, steady trade winds, and
the occasional goat as a hazard, the Club course is well
worth a visit.
Tee times at Tierra del Sol and the Aruba Golf Club can be arranged through the front desk at your hotel, or you can call Tierra del Sol directly at (297) 586 7800; fax (297) 586 4970
