Barbados Golf Holidays

Barbados is the most easterly of the Caribbean Islands, and is a tiny dot on most world maps. With an area of 166 square miles, Barbados has a population of about 280,000 -quite high considering its size. With an awe-inspiring coastline, perfect temperatures, and the friendliest people in the world, Barbados has much to offer on your Barbados Golf Breaks

Commonly referred to as "The Gem of the Caribbean Sea", this traditionally British Island is the perfect destination for your Corporate Incentive Group. 

Golf Holidays in Barbados

Barbados and the super-rich . . . The words still belong together like Tiger and Woods. But Barbados now also means great golf holidays at great value through GolfPlanet Holidays – whether you’re thinking of playing Sandy Lane along with the billionaires or the Barbados Golf Club in the company of Sir Garfield Sobers and his pals.
The cost of flights from the UK to Barbados is now less than £500 return and green fees are almost as reasonable – unless you insist on having Sandy Lane in your itinerary.
Here’s a quick guide to the top four golf resorts in Barbados . . . From the 45 holes at Sandy Lane, you can choose from a friendly knock-about on the Old Nine, the resort-style 18-hole Country Club course with its spectacular views of the Caribbean and the world-rated Green Monkey, carved out of an old limestone quarry and a test for the best.
Barbados Golf Club has become the soul of golf in Barbados for local players as well as hotel guests and visitors cruising through the Caribbean. The course was approved and sanctioned by the PGA European Tour to host a seniors tournament in 2003 after an extensive redesign that produced a fair challenge for golfers of all levels.
Royal Westmoreland, designed by Robert Trent Jones Jr, was recently rated the world’s No 31 course outside the United States. No wonder! It’s as beautiful as it is scary! Apes Hill is the newest golf course in Barbados. It is in a prime location at almost 1000 feet above sea level in the centre of the island, with views to the East and West coasts.
Add to that variety of golf courses an even greater array of hotels – from better-than-five-star luxury to better-than-comfortable beachside places – and you have an exciting golf holiday in the sun, with the sea and the forests never far away, and a range of restaurants to delight everyone.
