Roaring River Golf Course. The only public golf course on the mainland is Roaring River Golf Course. This 9-hole, 1,933-yard, par-32 jungle course (watch out for the crocs in the water traps) with double tees that let you play 3,892 yards at par 64, was the pet project of an expat South African, Paul Martin, who found himself with some extra time and a lot of heavy earth-moving equipment on his hands. Before long, he'd carved out the greens and bunkered fairways. It's not Pebble Beach, but it's fun, and affordable, too, as fees are only BZ$35 for 9 holes or BZ$50 for 18 holes. After a round of golf, you can sip a Belikin at the clubhouse. Roaring River Golf Course also has air-conditioned cottages for rent, and a restaurant, The Meating Place, for guests and groups. Off Mile 50 1/4, George Price Hwy., near Camalote village, Belmopan. Turn south at Camalote village at Mile 50¼ of Price Hwy. and follow signs. 820/2031. www.belizegolf.net.
