Greg Norman on Caye Chapel, November 2015
2nd photo: It was a pleasure to meet the First Lady of Belize Kim Simplis Barrow on Caye Chapel in Belize. On the 2nd longest reef system in the world.
Caye Chapel is a small, privately owned island in Belize, 16 miles (26 km) north-northeast of Belize City and 3 miles (4.8 km) south of Caye Caulker. It was once owned by Isaiah Emmanuel Morter, Belize's first black millionaire.
Knight Commander of the Distinguished Service Order of Ethiopia, Isaiah Emmanuel Morter was born in Belize (formerly British Honduras) Central America/Caribbean. He was a member and staunch supporter of the Universal Negro Improvement Association U.N.I.A. SiIr Isaiah Morter was the first great benefactor of the cause of African Redemption. He made the largest single monetary donation to the U.N.I.A and also bequeathed land in Belize to the U.N.I.A. that was seized by the British Crown. For example Caye Chapel was given to the U.N.I.A.
In comparison to other typically rural cayes and islands in the vicinity, it features an airstrip, 18 hole golf course, 25,000-square-foot (2,300 m2) clubhouse and conference facilities. The golf course was designed by Patrick Horvat from Lethbridge, Alberta, Canada. His company, Tee Time International Inc along with the island's owner built the course over two winters, nine holes each time.
It is possible to snorkel and fish around the island.
