“January 2013 Review”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 5, 2013

This is the best balance of value and course conditions on Barbados.
If you are an average golfer who likes to golf with others this is the
course for you. Very welcoming and helpful manager. Regular members
friendly. The restaurant was a nice spot for lunch after a round.

“Best Golf on Barbados”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 1, 2013

What a wonderful time we had at the Barbados Golf Club golfing 3 times a week during the month of January! The course is well maintained and very scenic. We walked the course, all but the last day when we treated ourselves to power carts. We were impressed with the personable and efficient staff. We will be back next January and look forward to another month of golf at your wonderful club.

“Best value on Island”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 31, 2013

It's relative cheap and easy to get on. $75-$100 with cart. Not a high end course, but has enough length. Greens a little suspect, not of N American quality. Tips.
Yardage markers are to the front of the green, not the middle.
Tons of roll, hard fairways, hard greens. I normally hit a P wedge 100 yards. Have had some P Wedges got 160 yards or more on low ball flight, a hard bounce and greens that tend to have lots of roll off the back.
On quite a few holes you need a good drive to the proper side of the fairway or you'll not be able to have a shot at the green.
If you're an average golfer do not try to hit the middle of the green with anything higher than a P Wedge or you will be off the back.
There's a very short par 4. Don't be fooled by the yardage in. It's uphill and into the breeze. I've hit a 100 yard club from 80 out and been short.

“Great value, friendly course, recommended”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 29, 2013

Not the best course on the island but great compromise between quality and value. Couldn't fault the staff, pro shop or location. Not the most challenging course I have played but would happily go back!

“GReat Experience”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 28, 2013

Visited Barbados golf club on January 12th, really enjoyed the course as a whole. Staff were very friendly and nice added bonus of reduced green fees if staying at the Savannah Beach Hotel. Nice set up of the course with some really great holes, particularly 16, 17, 18.
