The Cinnamon Hill Course at the Rose Hall Resort and Spa is situated on what used to be a large sugar plantation. Jamaica's past history is still present throughout the golf course in the form of graveyards and ruins of old homes. One of these homes, which can be seen from the second hole of the golf course, is the historic former house of Annie Palmer who was called the "White Witch of Rose Hall." The golf course's layout begins fairly open but gradually moves into the lower elevations of the Blue Mountains, where there is dense foliage guarding the fairways. The Cinnamon Hill Course at Rose Hall is not only popular for its lush landscape filled with historical sights, but also for its challenging game.

    I love this course. Layout of holes both challenging and varied. Greens exceptionally quick - an experienced caddie is invaluable. Played here in 2011 and 2012.

    Scenery and views are wonderful.

    Robert Ames, Director of Golf, was very welcoming and even gave me a free putting lesson.

    Practice facilities are very good.
