“Coo yah!” is patois for “Look here!” And when you look, you find a golfer’s paradise: a beautiful private home just steps from the 13th green and 14th tee of the world-class The Tryall Club course, with a long view of the velvet fairway rolling down to the blue Caribbean Sea.

Centrally located is the 66’ heated pool and long terrace with plenty of seating in sun or shade.

Delicious home-cooked meals can be served in the pretty inside dining room, but most guests prefer to dine on the spacious 80’ al fresco verandah for its lovely view. The modern kitchen includes granite countertops, a six-burner gas range, microwave and adjoining butler’s pantry. Chef Angela delights guests with her hot artichoke dip, pate, chestnuts wrapped in bacon blanket, cheese soufflé, (a must-have for lunch), sweet and sour pork, pepper steak, stuffed snapper, lemon bread and rum cake (in addition, of course, to her Jamaican menus including everyone’s favorite, jerk chicken). Artfully coordinated table service varies with each meal.


All bedrooms have cable televisions, state-of-the-art remote control air conditioning, and en-suite bathrooms featuring glass-door marble walk-in showers, marble vanities, brass fixtures, ceiling fans and custom wall finishes.

The Tryall Club Membership

A significant amenity for guests in this villa is membership at the excellent Tryall Club.  On 2,200 acres, Tryall’s golf course is among the most beautiful in the world.  Its 18 hillside and seaside fairways have been home to the Johnnie Walker, Mazda and other PGA championship events.  The resident pro offers workshops and private lessons.   The Tryall tennis club features 4 Agile Turf courts and 5 Nova Cushion courts, some lit for night play, with world-class pro’s on call.  All white attire required. (Starting August 1, 2017 some Tryall Club golf services may be subject to a 15% service charge, including green fees, golf cart rentals, shoe and club rentals).

The beach is well planned for parents and children. Have lunch at the beach bar.  Work out in the well-equipped gym and compete in the Usain Bolt Games Room at the Great House (teens love it).  Jog the marked trails. Snorkeling, kayaking, Hobie Cat and sunfish are complimentary.  Glass bottom boats, charter fishing, a boat to the reef and any captained craft attract various fees.  Enjoy weekly events like  complimentary Manager’s Cocktail Party on Mondays, as well as Beach BBQ and Reggae Night beach parties for an additional fee.

 On the hill, enjoy the historic Great House for daily 4:00 tea and sweets. Shop at the convenient commissary and chic boutique, and meet for happy hour and snacks at the casual bar.  Also at the Great House is the new Usain Bolt Games Room open all day and night for ping pong, pool, air hockey, foosball, shuffleboard, chess and checkers, board games, comfy reclining chairs and HDTV. And don’t miss the massive Tryall pool. The Tryall Club is thoughtfully designed to please toddlers, preteens, tweens, moms, dads and everyone from teens to octogenarians.

For a great write-up of the Tryall Club, see Dana Vachon's article Club Jamaica in Departures Magazine.

The Tryall Club was chosen by Condé Nast Traveler for its Gold List of "the best places to stay in the whole world.”

Tryall Club Golf Course Note:  The front 9 holes of the golf course will be closed from May 13 - October 16, 2017 for extensive renovation. The recently renovated back 9 holes of the golf course will remain open all summer. Members & guests who wish to play 18 holes between May 13th and Oct 16th can play the back 9 holes twice. Multiple tee box options will be available in order to give a different feel to the golf course. The driving range will remain open as normal. All green fees during this period will be charged at our 9 hole rates regardless of whether the golfer plays 9 or 18 holes. Normal cart and caddy fees will apply.
