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. Rated as the #1 Golf Course and #1 in Golf Shop Staff service by Conde Nast Traveler and winner of "Jamaica's Best Golf Course" title at the 2015 World Golf Awards, 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.

This course is extremely challenging and extremely beautiful. The greens are tough. You must take a caddy here. The caddies are very helpful; telling you where to aim and helping to read the greens.

Do you pay tax on the $15 caddie fee? I assume you pay the $15 in the pro shop and then tip directly to the caddie, is that correct?

Caddie rate is $15 per round which may be included in your golf rate depending on where you bought your round. An additional gratuity is also standard, $20/$25 is recommended.
