Best golf courses: Bermuda

Golf was introduced to Bermuda when British Army officers brought their golf clubs in the late 1800s. Today Bermuda is a golfer’s paradise with eight world-class courses spread out over the island’s 21 square miles. Each course is designed with diverse terrain and challenges as well as sweeping ocean views. Here is a rundown on the top golf courses in Bermuda.

Bernhard Langer: at age 64, Langer collected a record sixth Charles Schwab Cup, the only player to have won the season-long points chase more than twice. He also topped the PGA Tour Champions money-list for the 11th time out of a possible 13 since 2008.

Carlota Ciganda: the five-time Solheim Cup star was delighted to record a fourth Ladies European Tour win in her home national championship, the Ladies Spanish Open.
