Golf & Sports
Sibonné Beach Hotel has easy access to lots of sporting opportunities for visitors who want to combine ‘beach time’ with more intensive activities such as golf, tennis and horseback riding.
Golf: The Provo Golf & Country Club has an 18-hole, par 72 golf course designed by Karl Litten. Although this is a private club, visitors may use the facilities with prior arrangements. See their website at www.provogolfclub.com for details and fees. The Golf Club is about a 10 minute drive from Sibonné.
Tennis: The Provo Golf & Country Club also has two tennis courts.
Jogging: There are few places better for a morning or evening jog than Grace Bay Beach – which is just steps from your room at Sibonné. Stop by the bar for a bottle of water before you go – or there are plenty of places to stop for a drink up and down the beach in either direction.
Horseback Riding: Every evening you’ll notice the horseback riders taking their sunset ride along Grace Bay Beach. If you want to join in – you’ll have to make arrangements in advance. Even though you may see a horse on the beach outside the hotel – this belongs to one of our regular restaurant customers who rides along the beach to reach our Grace Bay Bistro. If you want to ride, you’ll have to go to the stables which are a short drive from Sibonné.
Cycling: Although the easy terrain of the island may seem perfect for bicycles – bear in mind that the sun can be very hot (and dehydrating) during mid-day; roads are full of potholes and sand; driving on the left may be confusing to some and traffic can be very busy on main roads. In other words – cycling on Provo is not for the occasional bicycler – but can be a great way to explore the island for more experienced cyclists.
Football: Here in Provo, football means Soccer – not the American-style contact sport. The Turks & Caicos Football Association has a website at www.football.tc with all the details and schedules. Games are held at the stadium behind the IGA supermarket – about a 10-minute drive from Sibonné.
Rugby, Cricket, Baseball and Basketball are also popular, with local competitions held throughout the year.
