The Cinnamon Hill Golf course was built on an old sugar plantation by Hank Smedley in 1969, it underwent a brilliant redesign by Hagee & Baril in 2001. The course combines beachfront holes, ancient gravesites, cascading waterfalls, exotic flora, centuries old ruins and the skeleton of the aqueduct used to grind sugar cane in the plantation era.

The dynamic course design features an open, windswept front nine, where golfers will find either an advocate or an adversary in the coastal winds and elements. Gradually, the course moves into the lower elevations of the Blue Mountains, where dense foliage guards the fairways.

Caddies serve as unofficial tour guides, bringing the site’s vibrant history to life. They’ll point out landmarks like the family burial plot of famed English poet Elizabeth Barrett Browning; long-time home of Johnny and June Carter Cash; centuries-old aqueduct and gravesites abutting the 17th green; and waterfall behind No. 15 where a famous scene from the James Bond thriller “Live and Let Die” was filmed.
