Course Description

Built in 1932, this course on Bermuda has become a classic spot for a round of golf. The course layout, holes, and practice areas were created by Roger Rulewich, the architect of Tucker's Point. The golf course has earned a course rating of 72.0, and its 18 holes have a total distance of 6491 yards.

The Club is set on Bermuda's lush island landscape, and features spectacular ocean vistas of the surrounding turquoise waters of the Atlantic.

The wonderful views can also create a distraction, especially on the holes that run parallel to the ocean.
