This 18 hole championship course is one of the best of Robert Trent Jones jr.'s designs, as far as the finesse, beauty and challenge of the course is concerned, which perfectly integrates into the surrounding undulating landscape. The driving range, the sanctuary, pool and gym, and the spectacular Clubhouse overlook the Caribbean Sea. The first class service provided by it's employees make Royal Westmoreland a truly unforgettable experience.

The Barbados Golf Club
The original Barbados Golf and Country Club was designed and built in 1974 by the notable architect Col. J. Harris. For more than 20 years it has laid sleeping and awaiting its rebirth. On September 1st 2000 the redesigned and completely reconstructed Barbados Golf Club reopened as Barbados' first public Championship golf course. The 6,805 yard par 72 golf course has been approved and sanctioned by the PGA European Tour to host a PGA Seniors Tournament in 2002.
Magnificent trees strategically planted 25 years ago give the course a mature ambience. Two lakes intrude and enhance play on five holes and create a dramatic 'Amen Corner' on holes 15 & 16. A series of coral waste bunkers carved through 4 holes adds to the excitement and personality of the course.
Ron Kirby, one of the most respected and experienced golf course architects in the world, redesigned the course to be fair, challenging and a pleasurable walk admist tropical surroundings.

presents itself now with two golf courses in operation. The front nine of the old 18-hole course are used as a nine hole golf course by itself. The two new Tom Fazio designed courses have been completed and are open for play now. These two Tom Fazio designed courses make Sandy Lane one of the finest golf resorts in the world. Hole no. 7 of the old course though, a short "down-the-cliff" par 3, will remain an unforgettable memory. If you are up for another real treat, just visit the Club House of the new Golf course and enjoy lunch, overlooking green fairways framed by the blue waters of the Caribbean Seas in the back.

Rockley Golf Club
is a nicely kept 9 hole course with fairways between 170 m and 430 m long. Some of them are very narrow and claim a very precise game. On the other hand it is easy enough not to frustrate high handicappers and beginners. Rockley is an alternative for a quick round in between. Prices are moderate, especially compared to european fees.
