How's the golf?

My wife is the scuba diver in the family, I'm the golfer. So, during her scuba trips, I'll be golfing. The Britannia shows an "executive" layout a few mornings per week, par 3s and 4s. Has anyone played that? The North Sound Club is about twice the cost, is it twice the golf?

Britannia no longer has the executive course. It is a 9 hole course. To play 18, you play a second set of tees. It's a tight course with lots of water and OB. The greens aren't in the greatest shape and really need to be replaced.

North Sound club is an 18 hole course. In general it is an easier course and the greens are in very good condition.

There is also a 9 hole at the Ritz, but you have to stay at the Ritz to play.

It's the one thing the golfers in the family find lacking on the island. Yes it's available but their opinion was north sound was being let go in terms of quality when visited this past January. This is compared to visits over the past 15 years. Brittanias issue for them is that its only 9 holes and to play the second takes too long bc it's like starting over on the back half. They'll still bring their clubs but it's no longer a daily 'must do'.

My husband would agree with filter14. We usually go in May or June and after the last trip he decided that he would no longer even take his clubs. It was just too HOT!! He said if he decides he wants to play he will just rent clubs.

Maybe you should take up diving. The diving there can't be beat!
