Golfing the Island of Barbados

The best of Barbados golf courses

The Royal Westmoreland Golf Course is the centrepiece of this estate: an 18-hole, par 72 championship-standard course designed by the highly acclaimed Robert Trent Jones Jr. and maintained in pristine condition by the resort’s ground staff. Stretching over 7,058 yards, playing this course takes you on a meander through a spectacular tropical landscape, offering tricky challenges and jaw-dropping views. With every hole, you’ll find a new test for your skills, with the signature Par 3s being particularly memorable for their complexity.

Of course, you’ll never play the same game twice. Even a small shift in the direction of the mild but refreshing sea breeze can alter your game plan, while the movement of the sun constantly reveals something previously unseen as you amble around the fairways.

As one would expect from one of the premier golf courses in Barbados, Royal Westmoreland has a complete suite of top-class facilities. There are comfortable, well-kept changing rooms, a Pro Shop fully stocked with all the essentials for a day on the course and the complimentary use of a buggy. Meanwhile, the practice greens and driving range provide the perfect spaces to warm up or sharpen your swing. If you are new to the sport or are looking to improve your game, there’s also the opportunity to take lessons with Sean Edey, Barbados’ first certified British PGA Golf Professional. His expertise and knowledge of the Royal Westmoreland course make these fun sessions valuable for beginners and seasoned golfers alike.

A good round of golf should never be hurried, and the resort has provided the perfect solution for players who need some pause and refreshment midway round. So, when you get halfway, you can stop off at the aptly named Halfway House to enjoy a quick snack or a refreshing drink before tackling the back nine. The elegant, colonial-style Club House, offers a much-needed break from the sun. Here you can take in the stunning views while enjoying a range of dining options. It’s the perfect place to relax after a game and recount the day’s highlights.
