Play a Round at the World’s Most Edible Golf Course
At this golf course you just may be disturbing the crops, instead of sand traps if you knock a ball out of bounds. Irie Fields, a vacation destination in the Caribbean at Kittian Hill on St. Kitts Island, is known as the “most edible golf course in the world.” The 400-acre, 18-hole golf course seamlessly blends into 70 acres of sustainable, organic farmland, where tropical fruit will be grown. In addition, the golf course itself will be completely organically-maintained.
“Irie Fields is one of a handful of organic golf courses in the world, and it’s also considered to be one of the most edible in the world,” a representative from Kittian Hill told The Daily Meal.
The golf course was designed by pro-golfer and course designer Ian Woosnam in collaboration with European Golf Design. So, the question is, can you pick some delicious fruit while waiting for your golf partner to finish their turn? According to the website, caddies will be on-hand to give tips for finding and picking the ripest fruit like juicy local mangoes, on the course.
