Grenadines Estate Golf Club, the only 18-hole championship golf course in St. Vincent and the Grenadines, is also one of the most challenging—and most beautiful—in the Caribbean.

Grenadines Estate Golf Club. This championship course is spread over 60 acres within the private Canouan Resort property and Grenadines Estate Villas, a private villa community. The first 9 holes of the Jim Fazio–designed course, along with holes 10 and 18, are in a pretty, green plain that slopes down to the sea. The rest have been carved into the mountainside, affording spectacular views of Canouan Island and the surrounding Grenadines. The 13th hole offers a wraparound view of the Grenadines; it's also the most challenging, because its unforgiving green is at the edge of a cliff. Rates include a golf cart and rental clubs. Golf instruction is available, and a pro shop and lounge are on-site. Canouan Resort at Carenage Bay, Carenage Bay, Canouan, VC0450. 784/458–8000; $250 for resort guests, $350 for nonguests.
