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.
