The dramatic elevation changes are one of the most interesting features of Fairmont Turtle Hill Golf Club. Golfers are quickly introduced to the rolling landscape with a 200-foot drop off on the first two holes. There are plenty of other challenges as well, including two water hazards and numerous strategically placed bunkers. In combination with the strong Atlantic winds, this golf course has occasionally forced golfers to use every club in their bag. Three sets of tees, most elevated, provide golfing options for golfers of all skill levels. Fairmont Turtle Hill Golf Club offers excellent practice for some of Bermuda's longer courses.

Great views, great course

I can't believe I waited so long to play this course. The views are amazing and the golf is a bit of a challenge, with some heavily guarded greens. But overall a really enjoyable experience.

Fun and Challenging

This course is so much fun and very challenging. The scenery is amazing, and it was nice to play on Bermuda grass in Bermuda for the first time in my life. Every hole has an elevation change and wind that you must take into consideration. I enjoyed the fact that club selection wasn’t as easy as just taking the yardage into consideration. Just the elevation changes alone made a 1-2 club difference up or down on nearly every hole. A must play if you stay at the Fairmont, as you can walk to the clubhouse from the hotel. Will play here again if I get the chance.

Great Par 3

The course is pricey but for an island in the middle of the ocean what can you expect. The course was in great shape except for the tee boxes that showed a lot of iron divots. Greens were in great shape. This course had tons of elevation changes and lots of wind, that and using rental clubs made it very hard to judge distances and shot strengths. Being a par 3, it had a lot of variety on the holes. We only played once on our vacation, but I can imagine this being a great warm up course for the other full courses on the island. My wife (beginner) and I started with the back 9 and completed the round in about 2 1/2 hours. We did not have any holes where we had to wait; great for a Sunday morning.

Pricey Par 3 but worth playing

At $90 even while staying at the Fairmont Resort that owns it, the value is average, but the course is spectacular for a par three track. The pro shop was well stocked, the staff super friendly and the course in meticulous shape. Certainly worth playing to sharpen your iron and wedge game before playing one of the big boy courses on the island. Also helped to adjust my game to the wind conditions I will experience at some other courses. All in all, I played 18 challenging holes in just over two hours and had a great time.

A solid workout for your irons

Turtle Hill was actually the first 18-hole par-3 course I've ever played, and I consider it a strong introduction to that particular golf course genre. On "big" courses, par threes can add a great deal of variety and personality to the experience. Due to a relatively small land footprint, Turtle Hill takes that notion quite far. Holes like the long, uphill 4th and the tricky 17th standout for their architectural merit, and many other tests drop a couple stories or more from tee to green, giving the golfer beautiful southerly views and extra hangtime on his or her shots. The stately Fairmont Southampton lords over the course and is visible throughout the round.

Amazing little course

The greens on this course may have been the best I have ever played on. I have played each of the courses on the island and the greens on this course were far superior. Staff was extremely friendly and allowed us to go out early. Pace of play was excellent. Would highly recommend as a warm up course or if you are short on time. The round took around 2-2.5 hours.
