Royal Westmoreland Country Club

4-PLUS: Must play course - excellent standard; worthy of 4½ stars.

Est. 2005

Royal Westmoreland Country Club is home to a well-rated and always popular golf course. A wonderfully natural and ever-undulating front-nine loop hands over to a back-nine with a few more villas on display. The large pristine properties are generally set set well back from the course.

This tree-lined and open parkland layout should not disappoint, with many attractive features and several excellent holes to enjoy. Plenty of golfing challenge, a well-crafted design and usually good upkeep all contribute to the appeal of this course. Certainly one to include on your play list if you are visiting Barbados.
