Robert Trent Jones Sr. designed the golf course at Half Moon Golf Club, which opened in 1961. Like most of his courses, this one is quite difficult and requires plenty of strategy. It also features one of Jones' trademarks, runway tees. The golf course has undulating greens and a tricky "figure eight" layout with tricky angles that are hard to handle on windy days. Numerous bunkers are strategically situated around the fairways and greens for even more challenge. Due to the course's difficult yet playable nature, Half Moon Golf Club is a popular destination for golfers. Caribbean Magazine even named it the "Best Caribbean Golf Resort."
