course, which can be played from different tees during 18-hole
rounds. Golf carts and clubs are available at the pro shop, and

Tee times 7am-5pm daily
Aruba has only one championship golf course, and it’s beauty,
with 18 holes overlooking Aruba’s northwest coast. Designed by
Robert Trent Jones II, Tierra del Sol is a splash of green in the
desert countryside – a Palm-Springs-in-the-Caribbean experience.
Tee times are available at a prime time high-season fee of $133.
During the afternoon, fees drop to $98, and low-season play is
priced at $88 in the mornings and $68 in the afternoons. The real

locker is available ($5) for the entire length of your vacation.
