If you would like to enjoy golf courses during your stay at St. Martin, you can.
The island of St. Martin/St. Maarten has only one golf course, it falls short of expectations, and there are far better options nearby. Anguilla and the twin islands of St. Kitts and Nevis are only 10 to 30 minutes away by plane and bring the thrill of golfing to a whole other level.
Let’s find out why.
Course Overview: The 18-hole, par-70 Mullet Bay course is the only golf course in St. Maarten. It is located on the Dutch side of the island, in the vicinity of Princess Juliana International Airport.
Originally designed by Joseph Lee around a lagoon and decorated with palm trees, this golf course is sadly not recommended. The greens are often described as too dry, slow, with dirt patches and weeds, and there is a severe lack of facilities on the grounds.
You could still get a half-decent play at Mullet Bay, but the golf courses on nearby islands provide more enjoyment and fun.

Course Overview: The 18-hole, par-72 Aurora International Golf Club was designed by Greg Norman and built in 2006. Following an extravagant renovation in 2021, the course boasts 7,165 yards of ocean-viewing, lagoon-rich, diverse terrain. In 2023, USA Today readers voted Aurora the third-best Caribbean golf course.
The 18th hole is among the toughest finishing holes in the Carribean. As you strive to overcome this challenge, you’ll encounter rolling terrain, dunes, water hazards, and trade wind breeze.
Course Facilities: At Aurora, you can get caddies, golf carts, and rental clubs — or visit one of its most renowned restaurants, D Richard’s.
