I'm Going On A Barbados Golf Vacation....Hunny Where Are My Golf Clubs!

Even though you would prefer your husband to be lying by your side on the beach all day, you can't blame him for wanting to play golf during your vacation in Barbados...

Remember he is traveling to the Caribbean!..It is going to be 30 degrees celsius all day.  Plus you aren't the only wife with a golf crazy spouse : )

When visitors think of enjoying a Caribbean golf vacation it is no suprise that Barbados is one of the first islands that come to mind.  

Why is this?..........Why is Barbados golf popular in the Caribbean?

Well there are a couple of reasons with the most important being the superb quality and design of golf courses in Barbados.

Another reason is that Barbados is blessed with tropical weather.  This provides us with ideal conditions to maintain these world class Caribbean golf courses all year round.

There are 7 golf courses of various skill and price levels from which you can choose.  The most luxurious course are situated on the island's west coast while there are a couple more affordable ones on the south coast.  

The first thing you need to do is decide what type of golf vacation you want to enjoy...

Let's Go All Out With A Luxury Barbados Golf Vacation on The Island's Platinum West Coast!

Of the 8 golf courses on the island, the 2 most fascinating are The Green Monkey Golf Course and The Royal Westmoreland Golf Course.  These are both par 72, 18 hole championship Barbados golf courses with few golf courses in the Caribbean that can contest.

These two golf courses are also ideal if you want to enjoy a luxurious Barbados golf vacation as these are the two most expensive and extravagant golf courses on the island.

So in order to experience the ultimate Barbados golf vacation a stay at The Sandy Lane Barbados Golf Resort & Spa would be your first choice.  This will give you access to the exclusive Green Monkey Golf Course.

Green Monkey Barbados Golf CourseThis Barbados golf course was designed by the world reknown US golf architect Tom Fazio in collaboration with this Barbados luxury resort as part of the resort's $600 million USD facelift in 2004. 

It was estimated that it cost approximately $25 million USD to construct the course which is situated adjacent to the resort on the island's Platinum West Coast.
