Mount Irvine Bay Golf Club
The Mount Irvine Bay Resort is one of Tobago's oldest and most established hotels. The 100 rooms and cottages of the hotel and its associated golf course were carved out of the gently rolling grounds of an old sugar and coconut estate on Tobago's lower Caribbean coast. The hotel (formerly known as the Mount Irvine Bay Hotel & Golf Club) and golf facilities recently benefitted from major investment and refurbishment.
The award-winning championship quality 18-hole golf course was designed by Commander John Harris and has long been regarded as one of the finest in the Caribbean.
The Par 72 course is 6,793 yards (6181.6 m) from the back tees and features five Par 5 holes (466-535 yds), eight Par 4 holes and five Par 3’s. The course has the unique feature of being one of the only golf courses in the world where you can see the sea from every hole. There is a club house and bar with golf carts and other equipment for rent. Full hotel facilities are available at the hotel, immediately adjacent to the club house.
The Mount Irvine Bay Hotel & Golf Club, was voted the Caribbean Golf Resort of 1994 by Lifestyle & Travel Magazine in association with Travel Weekly magazine. The course was selected in 1969 to host one of the tournaments in the film and TV series “Shell’s Wonderful World of Golf” and has also hosted the Johnnie Walker International Pro-Am.
Since being re-branded the Mount Irvine Bay Resort, the hotel and Golf Club have continued to win awards. World Golf Awards named it the Best Golf Course in Trinidad and Tobago for three consecutive years - 2015, 2016 and 2017. The hotel and golf club also won the 2017 trophies for Best Golf Hotel in Trinidad and Tobago, and the Best Golf Hotel in the Caribbean, beating eight regional contenders in this category.
