Golfing at Royal Westmoreland
One of the main reasons we bought Fairways was because of its situation on the Royal Westmoreland Golf Course. The Royal Westmoreland was designed by Robert Trent Jones, and has spectacular views from every fairway and green.
Ian Woosnam, Masters Champion, European Ryder Cup captain and fellow resident of Royal Westmoreland, has described the four par 3’s on the course as some of the best he has played anywhere in the world. As golfers ourselves we loved the idea of being able to wake up every morning and be able to walk down to the Clubhouse and tee off just moments later.
The villa itself sits beside the tee for the tenth hole so it’s the perfect spot to sit and listen to fellow golfers teeing off, without them feeling the embarrassment of being witnessed completely missing the shot! It is also perfectly situated to mean that after playing nine holes a willing family member may be able to meet you with a cold drink or a round of toast. Though of course there is always the Starter’s hut that serves snacks and hot drinks at the beginning, or half way round (and you can order for collection at the mid point before you tee off).

It is true that there are other golf courses on Barbados, Sandy Lane and Apes Hill to name just two but in our opinion they don’t have the same feel as this one.
This one feels like playing in your own garden
