Designed by P.K. Saunders, The original nine–hole layout changed in the early 1960’s to become the 18–hole course that is known today.
Sandals Resorts International, in June 1992, purchased the Upton Golf Club and set about creating the ultimate Caribbean golfing experience.
Removing all the existing crab grass and weeds, all the greens were rebuilt with Tifdwarf Bermuda grass.
