About

Holes 18
Type Resort
Par 72
Length 6543 yards
Slope 137
Rating 71.9

The Barony Course at Port Royal Golf Club constitutes 18 of this well-known island facility's 54 holes.

Playing to just 6,543 yards from the gold tees, Barony is a very enjoyable course for all skill levels. The back nine in particular is a fine mix of long and short holes. Like its sister courses at Port Royal, Barony begins and ends at the club's beautiful Antebellum-style clubhouse.

From the tee, many of the holes on Barony appear to be relatively open. But as you approach the green the real challenge of the course becomes clear. The greens are small and protected by deep bunkers and Bermuda rough, demanding an excellent touch with the medium and short irons. This is a course where accuracy, not length is the key factor.

Meditation round

They double booked the 7am tee time, so they had me go off as a single at 6:52am. I played in 2 hours. It was just me, nature, and a few golf balls. Wish I knew the course before playing. Cost me about 4 strokes. You can tell that they lost some of the greens in the winter, but they were nicely patched and rolling good. Fairways were really nice. Setting was quiet and pleasant. Gave me time to enjoy a quiet and "no drama" round. Will go back.

Great Time

The course (Robbers Row) was in excellent conditions with only two thing that they could improve on. 1) the greens were bumpy and did not run true 2) they need to have cold water and more of it on the course. The heat index that day was 107 and for safety of their guests should supply this important item! Our group had a wonderful time and will definitely will come back and play again

Challenging course in excellent shape after heavy rain.
First 13 holes we moved right along. 14 thru 18 we were behind a slow foursome who were behind a very slow fivesome.

Excellent

Course was about 3 minutes from where I stayed. Teed off a little before 7am and played solo so pace of play was whatever I wanted it to be. Layout and maintenance were terrific. Greens were a little slow, but rolled great. I highly recommend this course and can’t wait to play it again.

Beautiful layout

Gorgeous course. Great layout. Challenging but fair for all handicaps. Just enough water hazards. A few well camouflaged ones. Sand could be little better but very good placement of bunkering. Moderately punishing rough. Greens little slow. Driver tempting but not right on several holes. Very congenial and helpful staff. Worthy for multiple replays. Will be back with every trip to HH Island.

Fun time

I arrived with little time before my tee time. I didn’t have time to hit range balls or putt. The service was fantastic. Pro shop looked well stocked. The course was in good condition. The greens were perfect. The course is a little short. Holes 10, 11, and 12 were really good. Overall great value for the price.

Best of the Three

Port Royale has three courses and I like Barony best of the three. Course has some challenging holes and some easier straight forward holes. Conditions where pretty good nothing to complain about other than I few small rocks in bunkers. Greens were firm and a little fast but nothing to extreme. Pace was a little slow, I think they may have had a member tournament but they were done after front nine and back nine went much faster.
