Hopes of landing a hole-in-one amid palm trees and jutting limestone bring travelers to the fairways of the Provo Golf Club, the only 18-hole course on Turks & Caicos. The near-perfect weather of Providenciales makes it easy for golfers to spend the day outside mastering this lush, 20-year-old course. Turks & Caicos' indigenous plants surround the fairways and pink flamingos can be spotted near the greens.
Recent golfers say the par-72 course is well-manicured with all the aesthetic appeal of the Caribbean. But it's not only looks that make this course stand out. The staff also earns high marks from visitors.
Tee times are available every day from 7 a.m. until sunset; it costs $195 to play a full round and $110 to play nine holes. Inexperience is nothing to worry about; Provo Golf Club offers golf lessons from PGA teaching professionals for $80 per one-hour individual session. If you plan to play, be sure to pack proper golf attire – this club sticks to a dress code. But don't be concerned about bringing your clubs from home; Titleist clubs are available to rent on site ($65 for 18 holes; $40 for nine holes). The clubhouse is home to the pro shop and the Fairways Bar and Grill where a wraparound porch has panoramic views of the sprawling golf course. A taxi from downtown Provo will take between 5 and 15 minutes. For more information, visit the golf club's website.
