It is always encouraged to play from the same course length that you are most used to tackling at home, even though it is fun to see what the pros face sometimes!
Opened in 2004, the golf course receives regular plaudits from the rich and famous guests of Sandy Lane. It is not uncommon to bump into a famous face as you are readying yourself for your days play. Barbados is a regular holiday getaway destination for many celebrities, many of whom like to dabble in some holiday golf.
On the golf course there are almost too many highlights to list, the course is carved out of an old limestone quarry, meaning there are dramatic scenes and elevation changes throughout. The one hole that always takes centre stage is the par three 16th, with grass island green monkey outlined in the greenside bunker. It is a popular side game to see who can land a ball on it, though we encourage aiming for the green.
