Jack Nicklaus has created a masterful golf course for Britannia and the Hyatt Regency Grand Cayman. Reminiscent of legendary courses such as Royal Troon, Turnberry and Royal Birkdale on the other side of the Atlantic. The Britannia course features grassy mounds, rolling dunes, lakes and oversized bunkers. On the fifth shot hole, the tee shot must carry over the Caribbean Sea while on the breathtaking 562-yard Hole 9, three different shots are over water.
There are two courses at the Britannia/Hyatt; a 9-hole and an executive 18-hole. The course being played changes each day, so best to check with the club-house.
Approximate cost: US$50-100.

The newest course is the Blue Tip, a Greg Norman-designed nine hole golf course at the Ritz-Carlton. The 3,515-yard, par 36 course offers five sets of tees for varied play. Blue Tip features five long Par Fours and a 600 yard Par Five. Water comes into play on eight out of nine holes. Carved along a serpentine waterway with sweeping views of the North Sound, Blue Tip at The Ritz-Carlton, Grand Cayman is the first course to be constructed on the island in 10 years. The website says that the course is only open to Ritz-Carlton guests and Residence owners of The Ritz-Carlton.
