     The Tobago Plantations Golf Course is a Par-72, 18-hole course woven into the landscape of Tobago Plantations Estate, a gated community of luxury villas, condos and bungalows.  The recent US$2 million refurbishment project, which was completed in December 2013, upgraded the course to Golf Course Superintendents Association of America (GCSAA) standards.  In addition to enhancements on the course, the resort purchased and offers new golf carts, pro shop merchandise, and food and beverage options.

     The club house, situated between the first and tenth tees, features a pro shop, club room lounge, shoes and club rental, changing rooms, classrooms and golf bag storage.  The club house restaurant - Fairways Bar & Grill - offers a comprehensive food and beverage menu.

     The Tobago Plantations Golf Course is a PGA-designed course created by Bob Hunt and Marcus Blackburn of PGA Golf Management Ltd., a design, development and management arm of the Professional Golfers' Association of Great Britain and Ireland.  The course meets Championship standards and is a certified member of the Audubon Cooperative Sanctuary System, an environmental program offered by Audubon International.  In addition, the course has received certification for its environmental planning.
