Renowned for attracting golfers around the world, Barbados offers a palette of prestigious and challenging courses. With the perpetually sunny weather and the wide variety of top-notch facilities, golfers find a paradise here whether they are just starting out or playing professionally.
Visit the famous Country Club at Sandy Lane, a two 18-hole championship coursed designed by the legendary Tom Fazio. The club presents perfectly manicured greens and sparkling lakes as far as the eye can see. Take your pick of three courses: The Green Monkey, The Country Club, and the Old Nine. Carved out of an old limestone quarry, the exposed rock of the Green Monkey course creates a unique contrast with the rolling greens of the fairways. The Country Club course offers a stunning view of the Caribbean Sea as you play. Lush trees, colorful plants, and five lakes decorate the course. Make your way through the Sandy Lane estate as you traverse the fairways of the Old Nine. Small greens and tight fairways make for a challenging game. For some practice, visit the complimentary driving range.
On the southeast coast, the Rockley Golf and Country Club offers a challenging 9-hole course, able to be played from 18 different tee positions. Surround yourself with swaying palm trees and rolling greens as you conquer each hole, including the notorious 5th: a par 4 with narrow fairways, a sloping green, and bunkers. Play your way through all sorts of obstacles and challenge your abilities!
Visit the world-class Robert Trent Jones Jr.-designed Royal Westmoreland Golf Club, an 18-hole championship course covering 6,870 yards. Though, this course primarily caters to villa-renters with limited hours for visitors. Maneuver your way through each hole that will definitely demand the best of your skills. Revel in the loveliness of the natural environment that has been incorporated into the course, such as an old coralstone quarry. Enjoy the views of the shimmering blue ocean in the distance and rest at the colonial-style clubhouse after a scintillating game.
