Knowing where to go to play golf in Bermuda is one thing, knowing how to get from hotel to golf course is quite another. Unfortunately, renting a car is not an option, but there are other ways to travel the highways and byways of Bermuda. Here are a couple of options:

Bermuda’s golf courses seem to have distinct personalities all their own. Many of them are in remote locations where an unpredictable wind blows constantly in off the Atlantic ocean making even the seemingly simplest club selection nothing less than an adventure.

About The Golf Courses:

Tiny, elevated greens are often guarded by sand traps placed with glee by architects such as Robert Trent Jones to punish even the slightest wayward shot. Greens and tees provide spectacular views of the ocean, rocky shorelines, cliff tops and pristine pink, sandy beaches. Irrigation on these often spectacular courses is limited, which means that the greens and fairways are always firmer and faster than those found elsewhere around the world. Finally, as well you may imagine, water (the ocean) plays a huge part in the layout of almost all of Bermuda’s golf courses. Windswept cliff tops, steep ocean drop-offs, and breathtaking views are the highlights of play everywhere.
