About
Situated on the historic 4,000 acre Rose Hall Estate, and sited on 200 acres of lush greenery and rolling countryside, The White Witch Golf Course is carved from the rolling countryside of Jamaica’s historic Rose Hall Plantation and is an 18-hole championship golf course designed by Robert von Hagge and Rick Baril. This 6,758-yard, Par 71 treasure is named for the plantation’s beautiful but wicked 19th century plantation mistress, Annee Palmer. Legend has it that Annee’s ghost still haunts the estate, creating an alluring mystique that has fascinated island natives and visitors for generations. Winner of the "Jamaica's Best Golf Course" award at the 2015 World Golf Awards, also rated as the #1 Golf Course and #1 in Golf Shop Staff service by Conde Nast Traveler. The White Witch is considered one of the finest golf courses in the Caribbean, characterized by mountainous terrain, cool trade winds, colorful foliage and spectacular ocean views from 16 of its 18 holes.

Just amazing
Mar 2020
Had the pleasure of playing this amazing course on March 6th, and with the help of my great caddie Patrick. Very knowledgeable about the course, and has a wonderful personality. The course itself has some of most stunning views I have ever seen. The changes in elevations are crazy!!!, a definite must play course when in Jamaica. The Pro Shop staff so friendly and helpful!!

A special thank you to Keith, for setting up the tee times.

Great day of golf (or two)
Mar 2020 • Couples
Fun, challenging course with lots of inclines and fantastic views. We played two rounds and had great caddies both times (Rocky, then Kendra. Thanks!) My wife and I aren’t great golfers and enjoyed the fact that the course was pretty quiet. We didn’t need to speed through. Greens on the front 9 were a little patchy but it didn’t take away from the experience.

Feb 2020
If you have the chance dont miss out on this scenic treasure. So many holes overlooking the sea. I would hve given 5 stars but a couple of greens were a little rough. Our caddies were friendly and very knowledeable. I had my golf buddy with me and the caddy was eiter spot on with yardage or maybe a couple or 3 yards off.

Played here twice in the last week of February. Course was absolutely gorgeous and wish my caddie Erica was able to join me every round of my life as she was entertaining, knowledgeable, helpful, professional and just an all around awesome human being. Thanks so much Erica YOU'RE THE BEST!!!!!!!

Great Golf, Great Views,
Feb 2020
Play twice if you want to score well. This is like most courses you will play better a second time. Expensive, but you are on vacation. Course plays fast because you have to play with a caddie. This is very helpful. Greens fees, caddie, tip caddie, adds to alot of expense. The real expensive part is a 25 minute cab ride round trip from a trusted cab or service $100 round trip. Ouch, but we did arrive safely which is worth the piece of mind.

A golf experience i look forward to every year
Feb 2020 • Couples
Every year i play this course. I have tried others in jamacia but come back here. The staff is so welcoming from getting out of the taxi to the pro shop allison and kamara are so friendly and welcoming. They have a great selection of gear from balls to clothes and hats. The gal that orders the clothes does a terrific job with styles and sizes. So take time to look around. Waldo and others drive the drink cart with cold beverages and have many choices. Rental clubs are nice and the have stiif and regular. Hard to beat the views from anywhere on this course. It is challenging, but fun. I continue to see changes for the better every year. Caddies are so worth the money because they help you with yardage and putting. Well worth it! Kendra and imara are my two favorite. Please tip them well as they work very hard. Played there 4 times this year and enjoyed so much!

Real treat for a caddy we had today! Her name is Diane...she was so attentive and professional. We have enjoyed many caddies at courses in the carribean...but she was the best with yardage and club selection we have ever had! Really enjoyed our game with her!

Golf trip
Jan 2020 • Friends
Beautiful views. However it rained the day we were there and the course doesn’t drain well. Our caddies were ok, they were attentive but not informative. The golf shop staff was friendly and we were given a discount because the course has recently under gone some renovations and is coming back.

Worth Playing
Dec 2019
Played two rounds during Christmas vacation, this is a great layout with a lot of great views of ocean. Greens on front just OK as they are new those o back 9 better. They are island greens meaning slow compared to state courses.

Had a great caddie Diane who has been there for 11 years for both days. If you go make sure to request her.

If you remember you are on vacation and not hold it to state standards you will be just fine.

Caddies barely interested
Dec 2019
A number of picture-postcard and pleasantly challenging holes, particularly on a windy day like ours. However, a number of greens were in poor condition - on the front 9 in particular. I am a high handicapper but I was quite pleased with how I managed to navigate my way through the course. Overall, it's probably a similar level of difficulty as our PGA club course back home.
We were the only group on the course but somehow the half-way house managed to run out of hot food (patties).
Frankly, I think we could have done without the caddies. As time went by, they seemed to lose focus / interest in spotting our balls. They rarely cleaned the balls, and did not clean the clubs during the round. There were two occasions where the caddies sprung into life - (1) to fill divots with sand (as if their lives depended on it!), and (2) when the tips were given out.
It's always good to experience a new course but the experience was soured and I won't return. I am staying in Negril (5th trip) and from now on I'll count my blessings and continue playing Negril Hills where the caddies are approachable, helpful and respectful.
