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.

Great pace and very demanding course.

The course was is very good condition for this time of year. The pace of play was wonderful with our foursome finishing 18 holes in under 4 hours. There are a variety of holes in both length and shape. Many hazards require your attention off the tee and on your approach.Overall a very pleasant golfing experience.

Challenging course

Great facilities with a pub and restaurant. Practice facilities include driving range, practice green and separate chipping area. Course is in good condition. It is tighter on front 9 than the back 9. Greens are protected.with numerous, and I mean numerous sand traps, lots of holes have 4 surrounding the green. They are not deep and sand quality allows an easy shot to the green. There are just enough doglegs to keep things interesting. We enjoyed our round.

Nice resort course in good shape

Nice resort course with excellent greens. Fun layout. Not too demanding for novices. Front nine a little tighter with condos and houses lining the fairways. Back nine more senic when getting out near the ocean

Overall a pleasurable experience with welcoming staff .

Barony has a good mix of challenging holes

The course was in great shape and the greens were perfect - not too fast or slow. The staff were very friendly. We would definitely play Barony again.
