Golfing at Royal Westmoreland

Published on August 6, 2018 by NeilAndOlivia

One of the main reasons we bought Fairways was because of its situation on the Royal Westmoreland Golf Course.   The Royal Westmoreland was designed by Robert Trent Jones, and has spectacular views from every fairway and green.

Ian Woosnam, Masters Champion, European Ryder Cup captain and fellow resident of Royal Westmoreland, has described the four par 3’s on the course as some of the best he has played anywhere in the world.   As golfers ourselves we loved the idea of being able to wake up every morning and be able to walk down to the Clubhouse and tee off just moments later.

The villa itself sits beside the tee for the tenth hole so it's the perfect spot to sit and listen to fellow golfers teeing off, without them feeling the embarrassment of being witnessed completely missing the shot!  It is also perfectly situated to mean that after playing nine holes a willing family member may be able to meet you with a cold drink or a round of toast.   Though of course there is always the Starter's hut that serves snacks and hot drinks at the beginning, or half way round (and you can order for collection at the mid point before you tee off).

Our son in law has written a detailed guide to every hole in this blog post here:  How To Play Royal Westmoreland

It is true that there are other golf courses on Barbados, Sandy Lane and Apes Hill to name just two but in our opinion they don't have the same feel as this one.

This one feels like playing in your own garden

We are also happy to offer some complimentary rounds for you to enjoy, please check our Special Offers page to find out more


Meet The Author
Welcome to our home away from home! We are Neil and Olivia and we bought this property after retiring from running a vineyard for 10 years. We have spent the last few years travelling the world (often in a classic car) and fell in love with Barbados the first time we visited. As much as we love to travel, we also like to spend time relaxing with a good bottle of wine and great company. We have furnished Fairways very much with that vibe in mind: somewhere for you to unwind and enjoy your well deserved holiday, but close enough to plenty of restaurants, beaches and "must do's" so you never hear the dreaded "I'm bored". We also know that it is the little touches that really make a holiday, so we are more than happy to help with special requests beyond "can you organise a cot". Getting married and need transport? Have a special dinner to book? Want to have dinner served at home but don't want to cook it? We would love to help with any of those. Please do get in touch
