The Royal St Kitts Golf Club Still Closed

St Kitts and Nevis (WINN): The Royal St Kitts Golf Club continues to press for the reopening of the 18-hole golf course in Frigate Bay that’s reportedly managed by the Marriott Resort.

The course was closed in March this year when the country shut its borders in response to the Coronavirus pandemic, hotels were shuttered and the authorities enforced mandatory lockdowns and curfews.

As those measures were relaxed, golf was the first sport given the green light by health officials who insisted that sports organizations comply with COVID-19 protocols including social distancing.

But the Royal St Kitts Golf Club says its inquiries into the reopening of the golf course are not being answered by the government or the Marriott and the facility is poorly maintained.

Members of the Royal St Kitts Golf Club Treasurer Darion Fleming and Zeke Percival were guests Monday on WINN’s “Island Tea” hosted by Kevon Hanley, Amali Armony, and Azim Bailey.

While the Royal Golf Club remains close the Four Seasons Golf Course is open and in good condition reports Mr. Fleming

WINN contacted the Marriott resort on Monday and was informed that the golf course will reopen when the hotel reopens for business.

The St Kitts and Nevis borders are scheduled for reopening on Saturday, October 31.

WINN reached out to the Frigate Bay Development Corporation (FBDC) for comment on this issue but there was no response at news time Monday morning.

The Royal St. Kitts opened in 1976, closed for renovation in 2002, the first holes were open for golf in 2003, and the full 18-hole facility in November 2004.
