The Buccaneer Beach & Golf Resort features an 18-hole golf course with stunning views of the Caribbean and St. Croix coast. Our par 70 course, encompassing 5,668 yards with ocean views from 13 holes, was designed by Bob Joyce in 1973. Challenging, yet very playable, The Buccaneer is an ideal resort course just minutes from your guest room door with rounds of less than four hours and fun for golfers of all skill levels.

After a round of golf, enjoy light munchies and drinks at Chips n' Slices in our Golf Pro Shop. Offering breakfast and lunch sandwiches, snacks and beverages, the air-conditioned dining room is the perfect place to unwind after a day in the sun. The Pro Shop also features a flat-screen TV and a new golf simulator where you can choose from 93 great courses around the world.

Meet our Golf Professional, Kenny Peets

Kenrich "Kenny" Peets was born on nearby St. Kitts, where he learned to play golf as a child. In the 80s and early 90s, he represented his island and the region of the Organisation of the East Caribbean States (O.E.C.S) in regional tournaments before moving to St. Croix. Subsequently, he began his professional career at St. Croix's Carambola Golf Club under the supervision of Greg McCullouch, who was a former PGA member. He has since developed skills in teaching adult clinics, junior programs, private lessons and directing tournaments. Throughout his career, he has had the privilege of playing golf on world-class golf courses around the world. One of his fondest memories is when he defeated the world-famous Chi Chi Rodriguez’s younger brother (Jose) in a three-hole playoff. This resulted in winning the Island Chapter Championship, which included all the golf professionals of the Virgin Islands and Puerto Rico. Kenny joined The Buccaneer as Golf Professional in 2015 and especially enjoys time spent developing St Croix's junior golfers.
