Mahogany Run Golf Course (340/777-6006, U.S. toll-free 800/253-7103, www.mahoganyrungolf.com) is St. Thomas’s only golf course. The 18-hole, par 70 course was first built in 1980 but has undergone recent renovations and improvements. Nestled in a small valley near Magen’s Bay on northeast St. Thomas, Mahogany Run is compact and highly engineered. It was designed by George and Tom Fazio. The course is best known for the Devil’s Triangle, the challenging 13th, 14th, and 15th holes, where golfers battle the windswept Atlantic coast of St. Thomas.
Tee-time reservations are accepted up to two months in advance with full prepayment. Golf course amenities include a newly renovated clubhouse, restaurant, and pro shop. Greens fees (including cart rental) range from $145 per pair in winter to $125 per pair in the summer.
