Grace Bay Beach in Providenciales (a captivating island located in the Turks and Caicos Islands)…
Island golf at Provo Golf Club is substantially different then you might expect mainly because you will not see the ocean. You’ll feel the Caribbean breeze and that will certainly have you working your ball down low while facing difficult approach shots but you won’t have to worry about crashing surf and distracting ocean vistas. You are faced with golf course design that incorporates the mangroves of the island as well as water hazards and waste areas that call on your very best shot making ability.
Recent upgrades have improved Provo Golf Club and the condition of the course is consistent throughout from tee to green. The fairways are tight and the rough is manageable and the maintenance crew is doing a good job of keeping the Provo Golf Club experience to an above average standard for the Caribbean.

Provo Golf Club Hole Highlights
Hole #7 – Par 5 561 yards – The green is tucked away behind a small lake but getting there in two will take a huge drive and a dicey approach that must clear the lake. Lay up and you have a short wedge to a long green the requires a confident putting stroke.
Hole #11 – Par 4 313 yards– This hole id drivable if you are willing to tempt the hazards on the right. The green is guarded by sand but you are rewarded if you decide to play the high risk game.
Hole #17 – Par 3 163 yards– Fronted by water this picturesque hole is a real confidence builder. Drop your shot up front and let it roll slightly up the slope of the ample green. The water is intimidating but the relatively manageable distance heps you overcome the obstacle.
