Sandy Lane (Green Monkey course)

Unrated: Well regarded course not yet visited by the Where2Golf team.

Est. 2005

Sandy Lane (Green Monkey course): Sandy Lane, one of the Caribbean's premier luxury resorts, offers 45-holes of golf, spread across its three courses. The Tom Fazio designed Green Monkey layout provides a "once in a lifetime" golfing experience, which is available to its members and resort guests. It is complemented by the 9-hole Old Nine, and 18-hole Country Club course, another Tom Fazio-design, which is open to outside visitors.

The Green Monkey is a championship golf course that ranks with the world's best. Here you will find one of the Caribbean's most admired open parkland layouts, with an outstanding array of excellently crafted and challenging holes. Carved from an old limestone quarry, the exposed rock faces contrast dramatically with the lush, rolling green of the fairways. The course also offers dramatic elevation changes.

If you want to include the Green Monkey on your Caribbean golfing itinerary, you'll need to book into the luxurious and expensive Sandy Lane resort.

Did you know?

Golf at Sandy Lane dates back to 1961 when its first 18-hole course opened. The remains of this layout are now found in the resort's nine-hole "Old Nine". The resort took a huge leap forward in the late-1990s, when new Irish owners J.P. McManus, Dermot Desmond and John Magnier commissioned golf course architect Tom Fazio to design the Country Club course (2002) and Green Monkey course (2005).

Published ranking

2020 Golf Digest rating: No.1 course in Barbados.
