On the south coast can be found the Barbados Golf Club, an enjoyable 18-hole championship course, and Club Rockley, a well- maintained 9-hole resort course. Both are open to the public. The Barbados Golf Club offers some excellent packages inclusive of transport. On the west coast, the quality of the courses and their very close proximity to each other represent a veritable ‘Golfer’s Paradise’. Endorsed by the successful staging of a world-class golf tournament, and offering four PGA standard courses, Barbados is a genuine golf destination. Sandy Lane is home to two Tom Fazio designed courses, the Country Club and the Green Monkey; Royal Westmoreland is a very impressive Robert Trent-Jones Jr. creation; and there is a stunning 18-hole course now open at the Apes Hill Club, a spectacular residential development. The Sir Garfield Sobers Golf Tournament, held annually in April at Sandy Lane, Apes Hill Club, Royal Westmoreland and the Barbados Golf Club, is one of the Caribbean’s most outstanding golf tournaments.
