The newest golf course in the Caribbean opened in December 2009. Apes Hill Club enjoys a prime location at almost 1000 feet above sea level in the centre of Barbados. Located amongst a richly diverse landscape of rolling meadows, dense tropical forest, and coral stone quarries. The Club and its splendid amenities are establishing a new standard of excellence in the Caribbean. The developers, with a shared passion for creating communities designed to preserve and enhance their natural environments, have risen admirably to the challenge. The 470 acres of land has been divided into eight neighbourhoods with two two-thirds of the acreage ramaining as open space. Property owners have a selection of custom homes or semi-detatched villas which blend harmoniously with nature while affording unparalleled views of breathtaking scenery.

I played here while holidaying in Barbados. On arrival you can clearly see that this is still a work in progress development. The club house has been constructed, and the facilities inside are very plush and enjoyable to use. Out the back, overlooking the tennis courts and driving range, they are currently constructing a very large pool area. This looks... More

A stunning course with several very challenging holes (the bunkers are tricky to play from too!) The back 9 offer the best views but it is a wonderful location and beautifully maintained. All staff are very helpful and the new clubhouse is very impressive. Can't wait to return soon!

Seriously, this is a beautiful scenic course that must be done. Course ain't great by Wentworth standards, but put that aside. My 12 year old and I just marvelled at the backdrop. Excellent service, and a fair price. Our absolute 1st choice golf course on the island - and we've done them all (except the Monkey).

In all fairness we expected to pay more than we normally pay for golf with it being vacation golf in the Caribbean. The management and pro shop were very helpful. There were monkeys throughout the course. The natural landscape and slope of the course was excellent. Several green were under repair and if back home I would have expected the... More

My friend took me for a day. As I am not a very skilled golfer it was quite a challenge. I found the views and scenery helped me keep my composure as I got overmatched. The Clubhouse was small, but they are building new facilities. The drive to the clubhouse was beautiful. Staff very friendly.

The views from the top of the island and beautiful and to be on a golf course made them even better! Could see the Atlantic and the Caribbean. Course was challenging, but not too bad.

This is a great golf club. The course itself is very challenging--play from the tips or "medal" tees for a tough challenge, or go from the "members" or forward tees for a bit of an easier course. The greens are challenging but fair (I wish they had more break and speed, but still, a great surface to putt on). The... More

We visited June and July and loved the course. Beautiful layout and a real challenge Excellent practice facilities and those attending the golf carts do an excellent job and seem to pop out of nowhere just when you need them! Our boys had lessons with one of the Golf Pros -Bobby and he is a terrific teacher. Serious about imparting... More

Played Apes Hill Golf on Monday 16th May 2016. Course lay out and views absolutely spectacular. Course condition poor with fusarium disease on the greens (covered by sand), the fairways were semi bald and the tee boxes looked as though they had recently been seeded. Not what you expect for USD$210 pp per round. When I commented on this on... More

Apes Hill is by far one of the most amazing golf courses I have ever played. There is nothing I could say that is remotely negative. First time I played it, I fell instantly in love with it. From the start the course gets your attention. However, it really grabs you from hole 8 to the finish. Views are simply... More
