The Rockley Barbados Golf Course and Country Club is set on almost 70 acres of land in the parish of Christ Church, in the southern region of Barbados.
This golf course in Barbados can boast being the oldest on the island and is ideally located in Rockley area. This places the course very near to the beautiful Rockley Beach (Accra Beach) as well as a number of hotels and villa rentals along the island's more affordable south coast.
Not deemed to be as challenging as some of the other prestigious Barbados golf courses, The Rockley Golf and Country Club is still worth a visit for a relaxed round of golf, making it perfect for those who play the game in a casual manner.
The Golf Holes
The Rockley Barbados Golf Course is a 9 hole Parkland golf course that has the option of playing alternative tees for a back 9 (making it a round of 18 holes).
The course runs for 5,610 yards and is a Par 70 Barbados golf course that winds its way in and out of residential villas and apartments, swimming pools and tennis courts.
The Rockley Golf Course may not be as long or as difficult as some of the others but still requires players to decide whether they wish to play conservatively or to take calculated risks.
Players often comment that the course is very tight with some narrow fairways and steeply sloping greens with well defended bunkers.
The 1st hole seems overly easy which is designed to lull you into a false sense of security, while the 5th hole is said to be the toughest. There are also some long Par 3s placed in strategic locations to make players think a little bit about every shot that they make.
Players can make use of the practice driving area before starting their round so that they are prepared for some of the challenges that lay ahead!
