The only bad ting is that water to drink is not is only available once in the round. I was perplexed in an environment where the staff spoke to us about being hydrated that coolers with water were not on several holes. We also never saw the cart/beverage person, EVER, and we played 27 holes. The course was in great shape though.

Had a wonderful time playing The Barony. Many of the holes are similar, short to medium drive to a dogleg then a short to medium iron left. Tees and fairways were great then greens rolled well but were slightly hard and didn't hold anything more than 7-6 iron. Pace was acceptable and the marshal did his job to keep the group in front of us moving. I will be back for sure.

Played as a twosome middle of the day. For the money can't do much better in the area with the great conditions on the greens. Pace of play was typical of a public/resort style course but we moved faster on the back. Fair layout with some short holes to take advantage of scoring clubs on your second shots. No need to pull out driver every hole but it can be an advantage if you have confidence. Practice area is top notch with multiple greens and tees to hit shots from 40 yards and in. Perfect practice for the shots you'll encounter out on the course. Book a tee time and you will not regret it.

Played there twice this week. Definitely my favorite on-island course. Plays fair. Lots of doglegs in both direction. Good length, and good variety. Traps were mostly ok, greens were great, fairways and tee boxes a little beat up. Staffing was very nice and friendly. Range ok. $72 post 2pm fee is fair, would not spend more for this track. It's nice but not worth the $90's and + $100's they charge in the morning.

Greens are slick with lots of undulations. Very good shape. Like the layout and the golf staff were helpful and friendly. Bar staff was slow and they close way too early.

Course was in very good shape for February. Lots of new turf areas and cart path curbs preventing direct access to fairways. Greens were especially nice and recently fertilized. Strange thing was the plastic type plugs in former pin locations rather than grass plugs. Layout was challenging from blues for some par 4s but overall better length than from whites. Would definitely play course again in future. No ranger on course slowed play on back nine with twosome holding up our threesome and 2 other twosomes behind us.

first time played and only did 9 holes as my wife was not up to more. Played with a retired local from Minnesota who was a very nice guy. The course was in decent shape for the winter but there were many down trees and branches from Hurricane Matthew from Sept. 2016. Green were hard to judge speeds. Some long holes, some short ones. It's nice for the winter months. Staff was great and went to the grille for lunch and thought the food was very good and priced okay.
