Apes Hill, Barbados

Holetown, Saint James, Barbados

Few golf venues have garnered such acclaim as Apes Hill Barbados following its reopening in late November under new ownership. Perched 1,000ft above sea level on one of Earth’s most picturesque islands, the new-look venue is living up to the beauty of its surroundings.

The heart of the refurbished resort is a reimagined golf course, built with just one thing held sacred: fun. Veteran golfers and novices alike will want to experience this thrilling layout for the views alone before settling scores on the new island-green style ‘19th hole’. Developing players have the state-of-the-art Performance Centre to help fine-tune their game, while a short par-3 course – perfect for families – is also in development.

Like all the finest golfing getaways, though, the experience doesn’t stop when you step off the fairways. Apes Hill has distilled the essence of Barbados into its clubhouse, a haven of relaxation where you will find the sublime Noisy Cricket restaurant and an array of irresistible cocktails. Much of the resort’s stunning real estate is occupied by residents, but guests can stay in pristine villas complete with private pools and nearby leisure facilities – and if you fancy exploring the iconic island, vibrant villages and golden beaches are just a short drive away.
