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.
