Owner description: 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.

“Above par rating”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 27, 2013

This is an excellent well maintained 18 hole x par 3 golf course adjacent to the fairmont hotel and part of their facility.
An undulating course with tricky holes of up to 185 yds ,including water hazards.well maintained with a delightful half way house snack bar and well stocked pro shop cared for by very helpful staff.
The buggies are being replaced in march with new models ( which is a must! ) and at this time of the year the "sunset" golf rate post 2.30 pm makes financial sense.

“Par three course with nice views!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 10, 2013

This is a cute little course with enough challenges. If you want to get in a quick round and not upset the wife this is perfect! I was done in 90 mins including being held up by 2 ladies for 2 holes!

The greens are slow so you can go for it with little break. It's fun on windy days if you play from the back tees. I have never seen a ball suddenly change direction the way it does here!

All in all I really had a nice round and also ended up meeting a local!

Go play!

“Great Par 3 Course”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 28, 2012

We were not too excited about playing a par 3 course but it was the only one open on Christmas day. What a pleasant surprise! This par 3 will require you to play most clubs in your bag and due to the elevation changes, it is quite challenging. The course was absolutely beautiful and the staff were amazing. Really enjoyed.

“Par 3”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 5, 2012

The course was very hilly and steep but lots of fun. I don't golf very often, but this course was a lot of fun to play. Because it is only a Par 3 it wasn't intimidating, but the holes themselves were challenging. Because of the design, the course went up and down with water hazards and trees and sand traps to get you if you strayed from the green/fairway-- but what golf course doesn't. Overall a great course to play over and over again, the views aren't bad either.
