    Bets places to golf

    Does anyone have any suggestions on where to golf in Aruba?

    I will be visiting for the first time in July. My father-in-law has golfed at Divi and likes it.

    Only 2 places are the Divi (9 hole) and Tierra Del Sol (18 hole).

    I'm anxious to hear what people say about the golfing in Aruba. I don't golf but my pals all do and want to know "how it is?" I tell them I don't know. So, any "recent" reviews would be appreciated of the two courses so I could pass the info along. (Secretly I think they just "say" they want to play golf but they really want to sit on the beach with umbrella drinks. Hmmmm....)

    I played at Tierra last summer. Course is nice and not very long but the wind will make you miserable. With wind like that, miniature golf is difficult.

    SanNic 44, I don't golf either but does work in the industry and this is the general consensus when asked about golfing on the island.

    Windy sums it up pretty well. Played @ tierra and thought that the course was in good to great shape, scenery beautiful and varied; water, lighthouse, and a great view from the tenth tee. Again, I have played on some other islands(St. Kitts, Bahamas, Virgin Islands, Iceland) and all over the country and I am sure I have never played a windier round.
    You might want to consider renting clubs; everytime I take mine I end up pissed off at myself for going through the hassle of toting all of equipment around. Unless it is a golfing vacation but it is still a pain.

    Never played @ Divi, driven by it 100's of times and it looks nice.

    Yes.....thanks for the golf reviews. This will definitely make up my mind to rent instead of bringing my clubs.
