This Robert Trent Jones design at Rose Hall dates back to 1961 and it underwent a renovation in 2004 by Roger Rulewich, one of RTJ’s protégées, when he installed multiple tee complexes and repositioned a number of fairway and greenside bunkers.
Laid out on the foothills that tumble down to the coastline just outside Montego Bay, Half Moon has held a number of prestigious local competitions, including the Jamaica Open, the Dunhill Cup Final of the Americas, and the Red Stripe Pro-Am.
With a par of 72 and measuring between 5,148 and 7,119 yards, depending on which of four tees are selected at each hole, Half Moon is capable of providing a relaxed, holiday game from the forward markers or a serious golfing challenge from the back pegs.
The Half Moon Resort has joined forces with the White Witch at the Ritz-Carlton Resort and Cinnamon Hill Oceanfront course to offer a fantastic 54-hole playing package that’s well worth consideration.
Almost like a computer simulation of a Caribbean course. Every hole flanked by palm trees. Didn't originally book to play this as looked a bit of an up and down by a Road rather than being by the sea like the others but a chef at our resort recommended it so managed to wangle a fourth round in the fortnight AND glad we did.
Very nice experience - and what a halfway house. Caddie also very good
