Here are some early screenshots of the course!  Here is the official preview of the new 2020 Jamaican course.

Tucked away on the Caribbean coastline, surrounded by electric blue water and swaying palm trees, is a lavish resort with all the amenities one seeks out while searching for paradise. The greatest of which, however, is the 18-hole masterpiece that weaves in and out of luxury hotels and popular tiki bars.

Jamaica Bay is the kind of bucket-list golfing experience most hope to play just once their life: a beautiful, rugged, sun-drenched layout that puts golfers in a trance while testing them on every shot. For those who seek out destination golf, this will be their nirvana.

Here is a 6-hole preview and discussion from the Golden Tee lounge!  And here are the next 6 holes.

GT Par is most commonly -xx to -yy here, with the dependent setups on #a and #b.

Jamaica Bay — Hole #1: Par 4

Often times this hole is drivable with a long-distance ball such as Streaks just by hammering a high-teed B2 right at the green.

For tougher setups, you might opt to try for more distance with an A1 or C3.  Here’s a huge A1 off the tee that finds the cup!  Here’s another big C3 for an opening ace.

Here’s a tricky par 4 where you can curve around either side of the trees, but the distance is challenging as it is usually somewhere between a 6-wood and 9-wood, where the curve can be tough.

Here’s a great 6-wood around the right side, barely missing the trees to spin in the hole.

Here’s a great driver with bite around the left side that finds the cup.  Using a high tee, this one plays a smaller cut to carry down to a back pin.

This 5-wood plays a small cut around/over the left side of the trees more directly at the hole to find the pin.  Here’s another 5-wood cut shot to a top pin.
