Originally designed by Commander John Harris, the course at what was then called Barbados Golf and Country Club debuted in 1974.

The business, unable to compete with other private golf facilities that subsequently opened on the island, closed down shortly after it was unveiled and so the course lay dormant for the best part of two decades until it re-opened in 2000, following a Ron Kirby redesign.

Laid out in two returning 9-hole circuits that finish on either side of a lake in front of the clubhouse, the revamped course offers a slightly tougher challenge than its predecessor.

Make no mistake, though; the game of golf at Barbados is meant to be fun as it’s played on an open resort layout that allows golfers to spray the ball around a little without being too harshly penalised.

That’s not to say Barbados is an easy course to play. Three consecutive tough par fours at holes 3, 4 and 5 serve early notice that a score will have to be earned here whilst, on the back nine, the par three holes at 10, 13 and 16 are all potential card wreckers.
