Course Review and Comments
Had the distinct pleasure of playing this course recently on a family trip to Barbados. Our hotel had a deal with the club, so green fee wasn't too bad. This is a big planned residential development that only has a few houses built, but that doesn't really affect the overall experience. The people here (and all over Barbados) were extremely courteous and helpful. Golf wise, the front 9 is very pleasant and a good challenge, with views towards the west coast. The 4th and 5th were gorgeous holes, framed by tropical forests and changes in elevation. The back 9 was simply astonishing, taking you over the top to views of the east of the island. It is hard to describe holes 12-16, each of them total masterpieces carved from the jungle and across ravines. My father almost aced the 12, whilst about 6 monkeys watched curiously from a nearby tree! 13 is as good a par 4 anywhere in the world. 16 is a natural wonder. This course has perhaps the best set of par 3s I have and will ever play. Fantastic golfing experience, highly recommended.

This will get Rave reviews for years to come. It uses the geography of the island magnificently...therefore the designer had help.
