About

Holes 18
Type Resort
Par 72
Length 6543 yards
Slope 137
Rating 71.9

The Barony Course at Port Royal Golf Club constitutes 18 of this well-known island facility's 54 holes.

Playing to just 6,543 yards from the gold tees, Barony is a very enjoyable course for all skill levels. The back nine in particular is a fine mix of long and short holes. Like its sister courses at Port Royal, Barony begins and ends at the club's beautiful Antebellum-style clubhouse.

From the tee, many of the holes on Barony appear to be relatively open. But as you approach the green the real challenge of the course becomes clear. The greens are small and protected by deep bunkers and Bermuda rough, demanding an excellent touch with the medium and short irons. This is a course where accuracy, not length is the key factor.

Loved the course design, some real interesting and challenging holes. Out of the 3 courses I played it had my favorite grass but greens were in average condition. However, really like the course.

Why would golf now allow me to book a course that was closed. Now I have to wait to get my fee returned.

enjoyable but rushed

enjoyed course the first time last year so made a point of returning this year. preferred layout of front 9 over back 9. staff is great except on course rangers. though we had no group in front or behind us, ranger consistently interrupted our round advising us to speed up our pace of play even though we played at a 4:15 pace with an 820 am tee time. otherwise would highly recommend this course in HHI
