When it comes to St. Thomas, most golfers would love to know the fate of Mahogany Run. Closed since September 2017, when Hurricane Irma caused extensive damage, this popular Caribbean golf course boasted a George and Tom Fazio design with the famed “Devil’s Triangle” as a centerpiece. Today, the course remains for sale and visitors to the U.S. Virgin Islands take a boat ride if they want to play 18 holes. That is, unless they’d prefer to lean on technology as an alternative.
The Ritz-Carlton St. Thomas recently introduced a new amenity that should thrill any traveling golfer, as well as those who simply like to swing a club with friends and family. This beloved resort is among the latest around the world to debut the Topgolf Swing Suite, which allows guests to play simulated versions of 80 18-hole courses without enduring the Caribbean heat. And for anyone who doesn’t care for the links, virtual or real, there are other sports like baseball, football, and soccer.
For those guests who work up an appetite competing with family members, the suite also boasts a custom food and beverage menu including burger sliders, Caribbean chicken wings, and Mediterranean dips, among other tasty treats. The experience can be booked by the hour, which makes it ideal for breaking up the monotony of lounging by the remodeled infinity pool all day.
Just kidding, there’s nothing wrong with that. In fact, it would perfectly complement a day spent in a cabana next to the family pool, because everyone should want to hit the waterslide before and after shooting par.
