Bermuda is approximately 20 miles long from tip to toe and if you laid out every single one of Bermuda’s golf holes along this necklace of tiny islands in a Scottish out-and-back fashion, they would stretch out the full length of Bermuda and nearly half way back again. Bermuda is virtually one enormous golf club and Port Royal is the most popular golf course on the islands.

Regularly considered to be one of the world’s best public courses, Port Royal is basically a government run municipal and Robert Trent Jones laid it out on high ground overlooking the Atlantic in 1970. Host to the annual Bermuda Open Championship, Port Royal is a challenging course with huge, gently undulating greens where three putting is commonplace.

The signature hole is the 16th, a par three played from a tee on the cliff edge and it’s perhaps Bermuda’s most photographed hole. Measuring 235 yards from the tips, your tee shot, which could be a mid iron or a driver depending on the wind, must carry a yawning gap to reach the safety of the green which is perched on a promontory. It’s an absolute cracker.

Port Royal played host to the 2009 PGA Grand Slam of Golf which was won by Lucas Glover. Ian Woosnam was the last European to win the PGA Grand Slam of Golf way back in 1991 at Kauai Lagoons. Two Europeans appeared in the 2010 end-of-season Grand Slam at Port Royal but Ernie Els came from three strokes behind with five holes to play to claim the title.
