The newest golf course in the Caribbean opened in December 2009. Apes Hill Club enjoys a prime location at almost 1000 feet above sea level in the centre of Barbados. Located amongst a richly diverse landscape of rolling meadows, dense tropical forest, and coral stone quarries. The Club and its splendid amenities are establishing a new standard of excellence in the Caribbean. The developers, with a shared passion for creating communities designed to preserve and enhance their natural environments, have risen admirably to the challenge. The 470 acres of land has been divided into eight neighbourhoods with two two-thirds of the acreage ramaining as open space. Property owners have a selection of custom homes or semi-detatched villas which blend harmoniously with nature while affording unparalleled views of breathtaking scenery.

This is a wonderful course to play. It is expensive, but golf is on this beautiful island! The staff are very friendly and helpful, loading clubs onto your your cart (which is a must), ice in an icebox, water, towels... all you would expect from a high quality club. The new clubhouse is very glamorous but does need a few... More

Had the great good fortune to play this beautiful course with a good friend recently.

We have played the course before and this time it was nice to see the glossy new clubhouse. Everyone says you must play here if you're golfing in Barbados and probably that's right, but that's partly because there aren't many options. There are 4 or 5 absolutely amazing holes but, quite honestly, some of the rest of the holes are... More

If you are a golfer this should be on your bucket list. The course is truly stunning. The staff particularly in the professionals shop were a little surly but the overall experience was terrific. The locker rooms were well appointed and spotless. It is a testing course but memorable if not a little costly

From arrival to departure we really enjoyed our golf and late lunch at Apes Hill. The staff were all very welcoming, the course itself was well laid out with some interesting and challenging holes and the new clubhouse was fantastic with great changing rooms. The service in the airy restaurant area was also very good and we just wished we... More

We've been to Barbados many times and have played them all - for beauty, challenge, and value for money, Apes Hill leaves the rest standing. An extremely beautiful setting with some stunning views ... and some very tough golf holes! The staff were out of this world - particularly Vincent who looked after us like royalty. Also: a very fair... More

Played the course today, the green fees are expensive and the playing experience you will receive is probably not as good as the expectation set. Firstly there are members of staff that are not that friendly, they seem to do the absolute base level just to get by which won't serve the club good in the longer term. The course... More

I played here while holidaying in Barbados. On arrival you can clearly see that this is still a work in progress development. The club house has been constructed, and the facilities inside are very plush and enjoyable to use. Out the back, overlooking the tennis courts and driving range, they are currently constructing a very large pool area. This looks... More
