Four Seasons Resort – Pinney’s Beach, Nevis, Lesser Antilles

Where Beach and Golf Both Rank Number One

Is it any surprise that the Caribbean’s best golf course is on a formerly British island? The Four Seasons Resort on small, slow-moving Nevis is a golfer’s dream, combining an exceptional (and never crowded) championship course designed by Robert Trent Jones Jr., with luxury resort accommodations, superlative service, and a location on the island’s most beautiful powdery white-sand beach. The 18-hole, 6,766-yard course was carved out of moun­tainous terrain, leading up to an awesome par-5 fifteenth hole: At 550 feet, overlooking the sea, its breathtaking backdrop is a dormant volcano capped in clouds.

The course’s plantation-like main house was designed to reflect the island’s traditional British char­acter (Admiral Horatio Nelson and Fanny Nisbet were married at the Montpelier Plan­tation back in 1787), and is surrounded by 350 acres of exquisite grounds, abutting the water at gorgeous Pinney’s Beach, a 3-mile, reef-protected stretch that knows few rivals. If you feel like slumming it, Sunshine’s Bar and Grill, a shack plunked down right on the beach, serves a mean Painkiller.
