The Links at Divi Aruba Golf Course is the secondary golf option in Aruba (after Tierra del Sol) and a perfect fit for the casual recreational player. Situated conveniently, this flat 9-hole layout is somewhat on the shorter side at 2,952 yards from the tips, but features plenty of bunkers and water in a manufactured tropical setting (Aruba is most desert), particularly on the par-four island green ninth hole. Stronger players will be forced to leave their driver in their bag. The regular rate for 9 holes varies from $75-85 US, which includes a mandatory golf cart. The golf course is part of the Divi Resort system spanning forty years, which is a family of five Aruba resorts complete with a casino. The golf course is adjacent to two of these resorts and is conveniently situated near the food, nightlife, shopping, and beach making it an easy place to play. Again quality rental clubs are available.
Fagan Rating – C. The Divi Aruba Golf Course is a good, short, attractive, and nicely maintained 9-hole golf course aimed at the casual recreational player – albeit somewhat pricey “resort golf.” That said, the layout will not capture the imagination of the more discriminating or better player and would not be any compelling reason for which to make a golf trip to Aruba, but rather serve as a nice convenient, fun place to catch a 9-hole round.
