Accuracy is key at this challenging course of par-3s. Winner of Golf Digest’s Best Places To Play Golf, Bermuda’s Fairmont Southampton Golf Course features 18 par-three holes, most with stunning views of the Atlantic Ocean. With its lush tropical surroundings, dramatic elevation changes and strong coastal winds, this challenging 2,684-yard course is designed to take your short game to new heights, requiring patience and prudent club selection. You’ll play through multiple bunkers and water hazards while three tee offerings on all 18 holes make it perfect for golfers of all skill levels. Rent shoes and clubs at the full-service Pro Shop, where you can also store your bag upon arrival or arrange for lessons from one of the course’s golf professionals.

This is a great executive par 3 course. Lots of change of elevation and some really challenging holes. Most are between around 120 and 150 yards but there are several at 170 ish and the 14th, at 200 yards, is a real test. This course can be enjoyed by golfers of all levels.

Amazing views from this beautiful Par 3 course. It is tricky but well worth the challenge of maintaining par.

I'm not a pro, but it was a lot of fun. We played twilight (it starts at 2:30!) and got 15 holes in. It's just an amazing setting, particularly the front 9. also, supposedly conde nast's top 5.

Tough course. Bring lots of balls because if you don't hit the green your ball will sink into oblivion.

Not your typical Par 3 course. Many of the holes are long, and there is plenty of challenge. The views are often beautiful. Course is part of the Fairmont Southampton, but you do not have to stay there to play it. Pro shop is very well stocked.

I was able to golf this course, all 18 holes in an hour and 20 minutes. The course is pretty and located on the Southampton's grounds. It's nice, but not world class.

In the States many Par 3 courses are nine holes, poorly maintained with course layouts that lack imagination. When in Bermuda don't limit yourself to the famous PGA courses like Port Royal -- get a warm up on this beautiful 18-hole beauty. No matter what your skill level, your short game will get a great workout. The greens and fairways... More

I love this course. Perhaps it is because I suck at golf. It is a good, short, par-3 so i can feel like i can hit controlled, long shots! In any case - the course is in good nick, and pretty tricky & technical in parts, with lots of hills, water, and some really spectacular views. we did a few... More
