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.

“Par 3 course”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed March 4, 2013

I live on Bermuda and have played this course a few times. It's a nice little course, only a Par 3, but challenging to the average golfer. The course looks great, with some superb views from all over the course.

The cost per round is, in my view, expensive for the type of course. You'll pay more for other Bermuda courses, but they will be full size courses and also have the views etc.

One particular point of contention for me is that fact that they mandate the use of carts before the twilight rates. I can see no reason for this, other than to make more money from the poor tourist. Yes, the course is hilly, but I think it should be a personal preference if you want to take a buggy or not. Presumably it speeds up play, so they not only make money from the buggy, but gain a greater throughput.

Decent clubhouse and a nice restaurant above the club shop.

My opinion - pay a bit extra and play one of the other courses on the Island. And walk, it's better for you!

“Not just a par 3”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 29, 2013

course to ourselves during the week, plenty of sand water hills holes range from 130 to 210 from the blue, so you need almost all your clubs.

“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!
