This championship golf course features views of both the West and East coasts of Barbados. It's situated just outside of the nature preserves that are in the center of the island, and works remarkably well with the undulating landscape of the region. This landscape can offer unique challenges to experienced golfers, but remains manageable for golfers of varying experience levels.

Course Description

Open daily from 7:30am.

Having been built in 2009, travelers heading to this course should expect newly built, modern amenities. The layout, holes, and practice areas all came from the imagination of Landmark Land Company, the architect of Apes Hill Club. It features a course rating of 67.2, and its 18 holes stretch out a total of 5560 yards. Also be aware that they've got a pro, Ben Hatch , on the premises who can help newbies practice their swing or give more advanced pointers for accomplished golfers.

The course has been designed to keep the interesting and varied natural surroundings of interior Barbados, where coral stone queries, wooded ravines, and lush pasture land feature prominently. You'll find yourself surrounded by thick wooded areas in some spots, only to come out on the higher elevation holes with some stunning views of the ocean below. The elevation changes are one of the most distinctive and challenging aspects of the course, and you might end up losing a few more balls than normal.
