The dramatic elevation changes are one of the most interesting features of Fairmont Turtle Hill Golf Club. Golfers are quickly introduced to the rolling landscape with a 200-foot drop off on the first two holes. There are plenty of other challenges as well, including two water hazards and numerous strategically placed bunkers. In combination with the strong Atlantic winds, this golf course has occasionally forced golfers to use every club in their bag. Three sets of tees, most elevated, provide golfing options for golfers of all skill levels. Fairmont Turtle Hill Golf Club offers excellent practice for some of Bermuda's longer courses.
Formerly known as Fairmont Southampton Golf Club.

Fun and Challenging Par 3

This was our first time playing this course, and we thought it would be a nice closer to our trip. A beautiful course, right along the coast, and very challenging. A lot of elevation changes. But it was a lot of fun! It takes just over two hours to complete the round, and we would highly recommend it. We plan on returning on our next trip to Bermuda!

Poor rental equipment

We’ve played the course before. It is a fun par 3 with lots of ups and downs. The course is in excellent condition. Our only complaint was with the rental equipment. The bags were shaggy at best. The clubs were mismatched. My set had 2 7 irons, but no pitching wedge or sand wedge. My fault. I should have checked before I started. I believe that course management, who maintain a course in nice shape could invest in new rental equipment

Challenging Par Three course

I really enjoyed playing Turtle Hill. It’s a really well designed course with lots of elevation changes and holes that ranged in length from just over 100 yards to 210 yards. The course was in nice condition but I found the greens were slow (probably hadn’t been cut or rolled for a few days). I rented clubs and the quality was not very good (mostly old Tour Edge irons and Taylormade RBZ woods). I was also disappointed that there were no dining options when I played (restaurant not open on Monday or Tuesday). However, despite these negatives, it was a very enjoyable round.

One of my favourite courses ever!

I love this championship par 3 course. It is quite tight and I visited far too many bunkers but still managed 9 pars (I play off 18 WH. I think it suited my game as I am not a long hitter - my husband (similar handicap) did not score as well and called it a pitch and putt but that is just not right. A good test of golf and such beautiful views. Enjoyed a good lunch afterwards at the adjacent restaurant. Highly recommended to get your short game up to scratch.

Bermuda that day was rain and wind gusts of over forty mpg but my friend and I had wonderful fun day. The course drains very well and the staff does a great job so you have a good day.
