Trip Diary: Golf, The White Witch of Rose Hall, and Johnny Cash
Last Wednesday a group of us grabbed a cab and went golfing in Jamaica. We chose to play Cinnamon because it was supposedly easier than the White Witch Course next to it. (Named after Annie Palmer, The White Witch Of Rose Hall, who practiced voodoo and strangled three of her husbands.)
Both courses are built on an old plantation with many of the holes having a view of, or being right on the ocean. This was simply the most beautiful place I've ever golfed. And none of the pictures I took even do it justice.
That's why I took a selfie in front of Johnny Cash's house on hole 14. He and June Carter spent a lot of time there over 30 years.
When you're teeing off on 14, the caddy tells you to stay right of the 150-yard marker. I didn't, so I could get closer to Cash's house.
Then, on hole 15, there's a waterfall that was used in the James Bond film Live & Let Die.
Golf in paradise. And a mulligan or two.
