The Buccaneer
Virgin Island Golf
"Prized booty: The Buccaneer Resort in St. considered to be the most scenic layout on St. Croix. A trio of holes plays along one of the resort's three pristine white sand beaches, considered to be among the Caribbean's finest." (Travel and Leisure Golf)

"The only problem with this hole is that it's so beautiful, you don't want to leave the green." (The late Senator Edward Kennedy, after playing the #3 signature hole.)

A par 70, 18-hole golf course encompassing 5,668 yards with spectacular views of the Caribbean Sea from 13 holes, The Buccaneer Golf Course was designed by Bob Joyce in 1973. Challenging, yet very playable, The Buccaneer is an ideal resort course - minutes from your guest room door, rounds of less than four hours, and fun for golfers of all skill levels!

Meet our Pro

Tim Johnston Tim Johnston has served as Golf Pro at The Buccaneer for 37 years.

In his long tenure at the resort, Tim has memorized every nuance of the curvaceous 18-hole course. "What makes The Buccaneer's course unique is not only that it's a seaside course with many stunning views of the Caribbean, but that there is such a variety of holes." He believes the course is reachable and playable by the average player. Tim says when it comes to repeat guests, "when I see their names on the arrival sheet, I just go ahead and book them for the next day. This is one of the advantages of The Buccaneer, we get to meet and know all the guests."

Walk the Course

Come along with our pro, Tim Johnston, as we walk the course and give you playing tips. Assuming men hit a five iron 150 yards, and women a 6 iron 100 yards, adjust these recommendations according to your actual club selection at that distance. These recommendations are from the white tees for men and the red tees for women.

Caribbean golf at The Buccaneer, Hole #1. Hole 1: A slight dogleg left to an elevated green. Your tee shot should favor the left. Due to elevation, your approach may require one club more than you'd think. The safe area is the right side of the green.
