  • For a Caribbean island, Barbados enjoys -if that is the right word - generous rainfall that keeps its golf courses lush and green. There had been some golf here as the island became a tourist and residential attraction, but this 1990s Robert Trent Jones layout was the first real course. Except for the palms and hot weather, these rolling greens hills could be part of an English countryside, and the course, at just over 7000 yards, follows the contours. It is the centerpiece of a spacious estate that gives players plenty of room to open their shoulders without fear of retribution should they fail to hit dead straight. Little white villas enhance the surroundings, one of which is owned by Ian Woosnam, who says the heart of the course is its short holes. RTJ has made some large and daunting courses, but his Royal Westmoreland course that enhances the holiday experience.

    Royal Westmoreland Golf ⛳️ The last course of my holidays The course and facilities are simply quite excellent from the moment that you drop your bag at the entrance through finding your buggy replete with towels, tees, course planner etc and then on to the course. The course itself is quite beautiful with very well kept fairways and challenging greens - and a view of the Carribean Sea on most holes. Some of the par 3s are stunning with challenging tee shots over ravines. The 18th is perhaps the signature hole with a challenging drive to avoid the ravine on the right and then a tempting 2nd shot over the ravine to reach the green. All in all a great value round of golf.
