Many of our luxury villas in Jamaica are located within the very exclusive Tryall Club situated just west of Montego Bay. We also have a selection of private Jamaica Villas which include complimentary membership of Tryall.
Located on 2,200 acres, Tryall has an incredible array of facilities to offer. There is a world class golf course, tennis club, excellent kids club, a great water sports centre and of course a beautiful beach.
The beach at Tryall is glorious. It is a quarter mile crescent shaped stretch of beach with pristine white sand and crystal clear waters. It is really well planned out and is also perfect for parents and children. There is a great beach bar right on the beach so you don’t have to move too far to get some refreshments. It is the perfect place to work on your sun tan, read a book, enjoy the incredible scenery or just take a relaxing nap.
Located on 2,200 acres, Tryall’s golf course is among the most beautiful in the world. Its 18 hillside and seaside fairways have been home to the Johnnie Walker, Mazda and other PGA championship events. The resident pro offers workshops and private lessons.
Golf at The Tryall Club is an unforgettable experience that blends the beauty of the Caribbean with the challenges of a world-class course. The course winds its way around the estate through the hills and palm groves down to a mile and a half stretch of scenic coastline.
The 18-hole, 6836-yard, par 71 course, designed by Ralph Plummer, has been rated “among the most beautiful golf courses in the world.” This wonderful course offers stunning views, unique natural hazards and challenging greens. With the front nine holes bordering the Caribbean Sea and the back nine winding through verdant hillsides, Tryall offers stunningly diverse topography.
In Tryall, tradition is very important and it is one of the world courses where you and your caddy can still walk the fairways together and enjoy the game as it was intended. Even at the height of the season (mid-November through April), the course remains un-crowded, offering golfers a uniquely relaxed atmosphere. The signature par-three 4th hole incorporates the natural challenges of the Caribbean Sea and the Flint River, while the memorable par-four 7th hole provides a dramatic tee-shot through the stone pillars of the historic aqueduct that feeds the adjacent waterwheel.
Having played host to numerous Davis Cup matches and Grand Slam events as well as welcoming lots of famous players such as Boris Becker and Ilie Nastase, the tennis in Tryall is truly one of the best in the Caribbean. Perched on a high hill to take advantage of the gentle Jamaican breezes and stunning views, there are a total of nine high spec Nova Cushion courts some of which are flood lit which means you can also play in the early evening when it gets a bit cooler.
There are 24 staff at Tryall including several world-class pros, hitting partners as well as ball boys. In addition, there is a well stocked pro shop, weekly tournaments and private lessons for all ages.
