I played Cinnamon Hill and two other rose hall courses with some friends while on vacation at Half Moon in Montego Bay.
This is one of the best courses that I have ever played. By far the best course that we played while in Jamaica. It was very clear that the course was dry as many spots were turning or had already turned brown. But it was the best playing course that we played during the trip.
The greens were the truest of the 3 courses we played. They were visibly dry in some areas which was no problem for us since they were the smoothest, fastest and truest of the 3 golf courses. When you hit the putt on the caddie line it went exactly where it should. Only course in jamaica we can say that for. Our caddies were amazing which helped out a lot.
The front 9 has some beautiful holes that take you right up to the ocean and along some old ruins. The back nine takes you in to the hills and mountains and has many breathtaking views. There is even a house that was owned by Johnny Cash on the property and a beautiful great house of the white witch right beside it.
The only down side to the day was the lady at the bar was a little bit rude and snappy with our group.
If anyone is going to be in Montego Bay Jamaica and wants to golf you should definitely play this course. Best in Jamaica.
Thank you to everyone at cinnamon hill for a great trip and great golf.
Just ok, and not worth it
Course conditions are average, greens are slow, and spotty. Also, pro shop tries banging you an extra $50 if you book online. Just not worth the money, especially when you have several better options right down the street
Two beautiful but different nine's
This course was awesome. The front nine runs alongside the beach with a couple holes right on the water, while the back side is like playing in a rain forest. Some amazing views, loved our caddie. Would definitely play again!
Play Cinnamon Hill twice to appreciate it
Back-to-back days of playing Cinnamon Hill gave me a deep appreciation for what a shot-maker's course this is. Playing in the "Annie's Revenge" Pro-Am, I had a front row seat to how a club pro, a five-handicap birdie machine, a 10-handicap (me and my other partner) and a woman navigate the course. The low handicappers would attack the really cool finishing par 5s at no. 17 and no. 18, while the rest of us struggled to handle their hazards. The par 3s over the ponds (no. 4 and no. 15) are scarier than they look. The two ocean holes, the tough par-4 fifth and the par-3 sixth, add beauty and variety to the hilly jungle holes of the back nine. Golfers in the pro-am were torn about which course is better: Cinnamon Hill or White Witch. After struggling badly on Cinnamon Hill the first day, the White Witch was my undisputed king. After the second round, where I played better because I better understood how to play each hole, it's now almost too close to call. Both are a Caribbean treat.
