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.

“Fantastic”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 7, 2013

A short, very well manicured golf course with tremendous views! Not being a TRUE golfer, this was perfect as we didn't have to take out too many big clubs and were able to enjoy the surroundings.

A challenge for us, true golfers might have an easier time, but all will enjoy!

“Challenge Yourself!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 27, 2013

Off the bat, you may think "Oh, it's just a Par 3 course, no biggie". Well play a round there and challenge yourself. The course is always in Excellent condition and the staff are super friendly. Beautiful views of the ocean from most of the course. Ranked in the top 5 Par 3 courses in the world!!

“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 30, 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.
