About

Type Public
Par 71
Length 6539 yards
Slope 130
Rating 73.1

Located on the shorefront of Southampton Parish, the Port Royal Golf Course is one of the most frequented public golf courses in Bermuda and it is even known as being one of Jack Nicklaus' favorites. Robert Trent Jones designed this 18-hole course, which hosts the Bermuda Open Championship every year. Doglegs and wind are just some of the factors that will challenge golfers on this course. The signature hole is the scenic and rather infamous 16th, situated precariously atop craggy cliffs that overlook the Atlantic Ocean. The hole requires a nearly perfect shot in order to reach the green. Port Royal Golf Course has garnered such a following that some golfers reserve starting time a year in advance.

Nice course

I find it quite nice, difficult depending on the tee box you play, just long enough to make make you think about every shot.

Great test of golf at Port Royal GC

Played the course with a friend. The course was in superb condition from tee boxes, fairways and the greens. Friendly and professional staff in both pro shop and the bar and restaurant areas. In my opinion the best golf course in Bermuda. Well worth a visit for a challenging but fun round of golf.

First Time Playing

Lives up to the hype!

This was the first time to Port Royal. I was there just after the Bermuda Championship, so the course was still in fantastic shape. From the bag drop, to the after round meal, to watching the sunset from the lawn of the clubhouse, everything was absolutely perfect. The staff was courteous, attentive, and full of knowledge. The stories they told while I waited for my tee time gave me an understanding why they love where they work. The beautiful views of the ocean were a bonus. I can’t wait to return!
