Golf aside, guests at Apes Hill enjoy playing tennis, hiking, biking, swimming, and all the other on-site amenities.

What to Expect When Golfing at the Newly Renovated Apes Hill Resort

13 Seaview Holes

These will be available on Apes Hill’s 18-hole golf course, with four of them offering vistas of both the Caribbean Sea and the Atlantic Ocean.

The 18-Hole Championship Course

From a tee-side chat with old friends and meeting new ones as you take on the 18-hole par-72 championship course to refining your swing while taking in the views of the Atlantic Ocean and the Caribbean Sea, there’s something for everyone here.

You’ll find yourself on the only course on the island that’s bordered by ancient bearded fig trees, where coral gullies pour into coral caverns and the Drunken Monkey is waiting to greet you with a drink in hand.

The New 9-Hole Par 3 Course and 19th Hole

Ticks all the boxes and appealing to all your senses. This 15-acre amusement land will serve as a gathering place for you and your families to bond and create long-lasting memories. Even the smallest of grandchildren are welcome in this laid-back environment. The 19th hole was referenced to one of the most famous lake island greens in the world, just for fun, or you might call it an exercise in creativity. Imagine the thrill of holing out while your pals look on in amazement from a location that’s within short sight of the clubhouse.

Hiking Trails

The length of gully hiking nature paths will be further extended throughout the 475-acre community, bringing you closer to one of Barbados’ most stunning but remote natural heritage sites.

There are two brand new driving nets installed, complete with automatic ball return. There’s also a new chipping green and putting green, so you can work on every aspect of your game. And if you need some help getting started, the resort’s pro shop can provide you with all the latest equipment and instruction.

Performance & Teaching Center

A golf lesson, a new set of clubs to test, a new set of clubs to purchase, or just an improvement in your physical skills are all possibilities. Upon entering the state-of-the-art Performance & Teaching Center, their highly trained and experienced staff with TPI, club fitting, and coaching qualifications will greet you.

The center is the only one of its kind in the Caribbean and is equipped with the most advanced technology.
