The newest golf course in the Caribbean opened in December 2009. 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.

The views from the top of the island and beautiful and to be on a golf course made them even better! Could see the Atlantic and the Caribbean. Course was challenging, but not too bad.

This is a great golf club. The course itself is very challenging--play from the tips or "medal" tees for a tough challenge, or go from the "members" or forward tees for a bit of an easier course. The greens are challenging but fair (I wish they had more break and speed, but still, a great surface to putt on). The... More

We visited June and July and loved the course. Beautiful layout and a real challenge Excellent practice facilities and those attending the golf carts do an excellent job and seem to pop out of nowhere just when you need them!

Played Apes Hill Golf on Monday 16th May 2016. Course lay out and views absolutely spectacular. Course condition poor with fusarium disease on the greens (covered by sand), the fairways were semi bald and the tee boxes looked as though they had recently been seeded. Not what you expect for USD$210 pp per round. When I commented on this on... More

Apes Hill is by far one of the most amazing golf courses I have ever played. There is nothing I could say that is remotely negative. First time I played it, I fell instantly in love with it. From the start the course gets your attention. However, it really grabs you from hole 8 to the finish. Views are simply... More

I played Apes Hill five times during a months stay in Barbados. I also played Sandy Lane Country Club. Whilst both courses are very good, Apes Hill stands out as a premier golf experience. The architect who designed the course carved out delightful and challenging holes in a charming setting. Apes Hill is located in the centre of the island... More

Played this course prior to sandy lane. It is an excellent course with some amazing holes especially 11,12 and 13 which are just the dogs dangly bits. Monkeys running all over the place on hole 13 Highly recommend this course with excellent service. We went off the yellows which was a good test. If you go off the whites or... More

Surprising views at every hole. You can tell the course is new and will need some time to mature, but the views made it worth the while. Small monkeys and island goats can been seen while playing the course. We played mid day and the sun was brutal. I can't imagine playing this course in the summer months. Clubhouse is... More

We enjoyed this course and although it wasn't as mature as Sandy Lane Country Club, it was still very challenging and the staff have the right attitude to make the course a success. The course was good value for money, there is GPS, bottles of water provided on the buggy and a refreshment cart circulating. Unlike Royal Westmoreland, which whilst... More

Thank you for your review and I am thrilled that you enjoyed the overall experience at Apes Hill Club. Yes, as you have mentioned we are a young club.
