However, if you fancy a few holes of golf then the Grenada Golf and country club is there to offer 9 holes of golf on the island. Alternatively, island-hop to St Vincent or Trinidad and Tobago for the nearest golf.
Car Hire and Driving in Grenada
Road conditions in the larger cities and the more tourist-frequented areas are fair to good, but bumps and other roadway nuisances can be extreme in the more rural areas.
A U.S. or UK driver’s license is valid for a minimum of one year, but you must be 21 to drive. Driving is on the left-hand side of the road with steering wheels on the right.
Traffic is fairly light, but roads in the countryside are frequented by domestic animals and can become narrow and winding. Be prepared to give up the right of way to both livestock and oncoming traffic. Most locals don’t think twice about stopping in the middle of the road to carry on a conversation with a bystander, and don’t be put off by honking horns; it’s a Caribbean way of saying hello.
