Riddell's Bay Golf & Country Club

The first hole is considered by some to be the toughest hole on the island, though getting by that without much of a blemish still doesn't mean you'll be out of the woods entirely. Though it's a relatively short course, it can be deceptive and will require a decent short game in order to turn in a solid scorecard. The ocean breeze can be stiff and will wreak havoc at times. However, the friendly membership and the spectacular vistas should be enough to keep your chin up even when your golf game isn't where you want it to be.

Course Description

The course is open for business year round.

Founded in 1922, this golf course on Bermuda has become an established site for visiting golfers. The lay of the land, holes, and feared sand traps were created by Devereux Emmet, the lead architect of the course. It has been given a course rating of 66.9, and its 18 holes measure out a total of 5457 yards.

The colorful and quintessentially Bermudan flora all around the course is one of its major appeals, though the views you'll have of the ocean on one side and the marina on the other are what make this such a beautiful place to play a round. A number of holes run right up next to water, and are especially scenic.
