Spread over more than 24 hectares (59 acres) with panoramic sea views, Trump International Golf Club, at the Canouan Resort on Carenage Bay (tel. 784/458-8000), is an 18-hole, par-72 championship course designed by Jim Fazio. The course soars 252m (827 ft.) above sea level to the 13th tee, and holes 11 to 15 teeter on a knife's-edge ride. Several golf magazines have named this course one of the best in the world. Greens fees for 18 holes are $220 for hotel guests or $300 for visitors. Available at the pro shop are carts, rental clubs, and even golf instruction.

The best dive center is Canouan Dive Center, next to the previously recommended Tamarind Beach Hotel, at Charlestown (tel. 784/528-8030; www.canouandivecenter.com), offering scuba diving for all levels of experience. The island itself has some of the finest diving in the southern Caribbean, and you can also go on dives to the Tobago Cays, Mayreau, and Union Island. This is a full PADI resort, offering training by master scuba divers. With equipment, prices range $95 to $110 per one-tank dive, or $95 per dive if more than five dives are booked; PADI courses cost from $175 to $875, depending on your requirements.
