Commander John D Harris carved the Tobago Golf Club, as it was originally called, out of an old coconut plantation in 1968. The following year, the club hosted Shell's Wonderful World of Golf.

Subsequently re-branded as the Mount Irvine Bay Golf Club the course is regarded as one of the best tracks in the Caribbean.

With spectacular sea views of Buccoo Reef from every hole, the course is laid out on a 127-acre site that rises inland on natural terraces from the sea, featuring many fairways that are framed by bamboo and palm trees.

An 18-hole, par 72 course measuring a shade under 6,800 yards, Mount Irvine is laid out in two returning loops of nine with five par fives (ranging from 465 to 535 yards) and five par threes (only two of which are less than 200 yards).

With more than half of the fairways kinking left or right, the architect certainly liked to incorporate doglegged holes into his design – none more so that at the 472-yard, par four, 9th where the elevated tee allows golfers to see all the water, sand and arboreal hazards on their way to the green.
