St. Croix Activity Series: Golf

St. Croix has always been home to a happy group of retirees and snowbirds (retirees who “fly south” from the U.S. mainland for the winter).  Retiring in the Virgin Islands has many perks, including beautiful weather for golf year-round.  For adamant golfers, more incredible golf courses are a quick flight away on nearby islands like Puerto Rico, St. Maarten, Antigua, etc.
