Designer, Robert Von Hagge:

  • "Like Anne Palmer, the course is gorgeous. It's alluring, it's tempting and it's absolutely distinctive. There's nothing like The White Witch in the entire Caribbean Basin---and maybe not in the world."

Co-Designer, Rick Baril:

  • "The course has 18 post-card holes which will test the player's ability to keep his or her eyes on the ball. Our design philosophy calls for building a course that will thrill and excite players of all levels."
  • "We also tried to create a course that will give you a different experience each time you play. We have done that at The White Witch by creating multiple tees throughout. Whereas the low handicapper might have to carry a yawning ravine to each green, there will also be tees allowing the shorter hitter to get there as well. The topography is unique, making each hole memorable and distinctive in its own right."
