Located at Durants in the southern parish of Christ Church, just off the ABC Highway, the Barbados Golf Club is easily accessible from most parts of the island. In keeping with its mantra of ‘Golf for All’, the club has earned itself high regard as the hospitable home of golf in Barbados, where locals, visitors and cruise ship passengers are all made very welcome.
The course was re-designed in 2000 by Ron Kirby, one of the most respected and experienced golf architects in the world, who set out to create a fair, challenging and pleasurable game for golfers of all levels. Just 3-years later, in a telling nod of approval, the course was sanctioned by the PGA European Tour to host a PGA Seniors Tournament. Since then the Barbados Golf Club has hosted numerous championships, including the Caribbean Junior Championships, the Eastern Caribbean Championships and the Barbados Open.
The 6,805-yard, par-72, 18-hole, links-style course meanders across gently undulating landscape, with wide open fairways and superb greens. The course is made up of two ‘returning nines’ that finish into an expansive triple green, dramatically wrapped around a small lake bordered with mature trees. A second lake comes into play around holes 15 and 16, creating an enjoyably challenging Bajan ‘Amen Corner’.
With very competitive green fees and rentals, Barbados Golf Club is considered by many to be the best value for money course in Barbados. And, with its open-plan Bar & Restaurant, overlooking the 18th green and lake, it is certainly a great place to relax and enjoy post-golf drinks and food.
