(CARIBBEAN JOURNAL) – Golf legend Greg Norman will spearhead the transformation of the 18-hole Sandals Saint Lucia Golf and Country Club at Cap Estate.

The former St Lucia Golf and Country Club, which was acquired by Sandals Resorts last year, will be converted by Greg Norman and his Greg Norman Golf Course Design team into a “new, international standard championship golf course,” according to a statement from Sandals.

Norman visited with Sandals CEO Adam Stewart in St Lucia this week to discuss the transformation plans.

“This golf course is a diamond in the rough and we are thrilled and honored that Sandals has asked our design firm to bring it to life,” Norman said. “We have a fantastic partnership with Sandals and the Stewarts and look forward to working on another destination with their team in St. Lucia.”

According to Stewart, the new championship golf course could be finished as soon as the next 12 to 14 months.

The course is already considered among the most challenging golf courses in the Caribbean.

“It’s going to be a game-changer for this destination and it’s going to be a game-changer for our company,” Stewart said.

Norman has designed several golf layouts in the Caribbean, including the Sandals Emerald Bay Golf Course in Great Exuma in the Bahamas and the CuisinArt Golf Club in Anguilla, among others.

  2. As a regular visitor to this island it is of note just how bad the golf course has become over the years. Its been poorly managed in the past but more so since Sandals took over the operation. We're amazed that there was never any money to spend on repairs or updates previously but suddenly there's sufficient funds to pay the likes of Greg Norman and his team of experts to change this " diamond in the rough " to an amazing course. Fee refunds should be the first thing on the agenda both to visitors and members alike who no longer avail themselves of the course. Much needs attention especially customer services. We wait with trepidation

  3. What's old is new again. "Celebrity" Greg Norman already had his chance in St. Lucia. Remember PARADIS? Remember the billboards with pictures of "Celebrity" Gregg Norman and how fabulous everything would be? And now fifteen years later PARADIS is nothing but the carcass of an unfinished resort, an eyesore on the way to the airport. That's the company Celebrity Gregg Norman travels in. The "celebrity" is nothing more than opportunism, branding, sell something to unsuspecting gullible countries like ours. In fact, once it fails, sell it again to the same suckers. Put your name on the disaster: make some easy money.
