On his third voyage to the New World in 1498, Columbus named Grenada “Concepcion”. A hundred or so years later the British tried to colonise Grenada but the cannibalistic Carib Indians frightened them off. Some fifty years later, the French arrived with bottles of brandy to calm the hungry Caribs. After a fierce battle the French eventually prevailed after the Caribs threw themselves off the clifftops rather than submit.
Grenada is much more relaxed these days and it’s an earthly paradise for cricket fans. There are only nine holes to keep the golfer happy on Grenada. The Grenada Golf Club is where all the golf happens and here you can hire a set of clubs and tee it up. Panoramic views of the Atlantic Ocean and the Caribbean Sea come free with the modest green fee at Grenada Golf Club.
