Just rated #31 on Golf Digest's Top 100 Courses outside of the USA, Royal Westmoreland, the only course in Barbados to make the top 100, offers to golfers an intriguing 18-hole championship course designed by Robert Trent Jones Jnr. The course lies next to a nature reserve, with some holes featuring this natural environment. For instance, the 5th and 6th holes utilize an old stone quarry, while the 12th par 3 borders a ravine and challenges even the lowest handicap-player. Some of their rental packages include complimentary golf.
