Apes Hill Club enjoys a prime location at almost 1000 feet above sea level in the centre of Barbados. Located amongst a richly diverse landscape of rolling meadows, dense tropical forest, and coral stone quarries. The Club and its splendid amenities are establishing a new standard of excellence in the Caribbean. The developers, with a shared passion for creating communities designed to preserve and enhance their natural environments, have risen admirably to the challenge. The 470 acres of land has been divided into eight neighbourhoods with two two-thirds of the acreage ramaining as open space. Property owners have a selection of custom homes or semi-detatched villas which blend harmoniously with nature while affording unparalleled views of breathtaking scenery. « less

If you get the opportunity to play this course...take it. It is magnificent. It is also very playable. The greens are somewhat challenging, but they run true. The clubhouse, which is soon to be replaced by a new one, is more than adequate and most conducive to after golf parlays to meet and converse with other golfers.I played this course,... More

We take a family vacation to Barbados every year and typically my husband plays golf at the Westmoreland course. This year he played at Ape’s Hill and we had an awesome time. The green was lush, the staff was very accommodating, the food was superb and the monkey’s that watched us the entire time were friendly and cute. The scenery... More

We just returned from a week in Barbados. We spent the first 3 nights at an Apes Hill Club Golf Villa. Loved the villa and the golf! We started our first round at Apes Hill at 4:00 and only made it through 12 holes before it got too dark and we had to head in. They have a reduced rate... More

The staff were superb, I was on a fact finding mission and was treated like royalty. They had no idea who I was, but still treated me to a trip around the back 9 and a couple of star golfers allowed me to tee off the 11th with their clubs. A truly beautiful course with very professional staff.

Playing here was a gift from my other half. She'd seen me looking at the Website and booked it through Camilla at the club. I couldn't sleep the night before through excitement. The arrival up the driveway to the clubhouse is special enough, very impressive. My clubs were whisked away and I was told to go to the pro-shop and... More

Had a romantic last night drink with my partner at the club house. The staff was accommodating and friendly and we quietly watched the sun set whilst reminiscing on our time spent in Barbados.

Worth the experience just for the views. Hilly course for which a buggy is essential. Good GPS systems in the buggies which means you do not need a caddy which for us was a plus. Nice staff in the clubhouse which is only temporary as the main clubhouse is still being constructed. Good warm up facilities with plenty of balls... More

This review comes from a golf professional. The golf course layout is absolutely stunning. A few holes just blew me away. I won't give them away! ha. The monkeys on the course are pretty cool to see. I was there for a Pro Am event and the greens were absolutely horrible. Thick, shaggy which a very hard stroke was needed... More

Apes Hill is an amazing place. Almost every hole is fantastic. Undulations galore. Well shaped and sloped greens to confound you and reward you. They are a little slower than you might expect, but if they were faster you'd never finish out many holes. I didn't even feel bad about the cost ($280) as it was all I expected. For... More
