Mid Ocean Golf Club

Located on the westernmost side of the main island, this course has seen an impressive list of celebrities at one time or another, including Babe Ruth, Winston Churchill, and multiple US presidents. The course has a long history on the island and a reputation as one of the best courses in the world. It has gone through several renovations and modifications to keep it at a top level -- the most recent one in 2002.

Course Description

Built in 1921, this course on Bermuda has long been welcoming visitors to its greens and fairways. The layout, difficulty of the holes, and bunkers were created by C.B. Macdonald and Seth Raynor, the lead architect of this golf course. The golf course has a course rating of 71.3, and its 18 holes stretch out a total of 6095 yards. Also note that there's a golf professional, Kevin Benevides, handy, so you'll especially enjoy this location if you need instruction or tips.

This winding course runs right up next to the ocean on 3 of its 4 sides, and a number of holes stretch out alongside and parallel to the ocean, making for some spectacular views. The course is dotted with bunkers and lakes, which can wreak havoc on players, as it apparently did for Babe Ruth who, legend has it, hit 11 straight balls into the same lake on the 5th hole. So be extra careful with that one.
