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.

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.

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.

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.

ELEVATION CHANGES made for a tough walk, but for interesting shots. The first two holes are big downhill making club choices difficult. You're hitting approach shots off of tees, so it was not that challenging for me (9 handicapper). My wife played some of the holes from the back tees so it seemed more like a real course and she enjoyed everything except pushing the cart up 8 and 9; the back nine is much flatter than the front. This was a fun little course that gives you an opportunity to get used to the Bermuda wind before playing the big $$$ courses. The views are almost on par with Mid Ocean and Port Royal. We played at the $45 twilight walking rate, otherwise the course would be overpriced. It claims to be ranked among the top-5 par 3 courses in the world.

It's no reason this course is the host of the Grey Goose Par 3 World Championship. The course is fabulously maintained and it is a very challenging course with significant elevation changes, a few sloping greens, and a couple of imposing water hazards! Having said that, I played with my father who isn't a golfer and was visiting the island and he had a great time. The rough is very forgiving. The views are just to die for and the 18th tee allows you to see both sides of the island. Turn up after 3pm to get the sunset discount and walk to get it even cheaper. Drinks and towels included in the price of the cart are a great touch.

Since we were only in port for 24 hrs this course fit in perfect into our available time. The course was in great shape and the views of the surrounding area were awesome. The course was challenging but fair. The greens were slower than what we are used to at home and had hidden breaks. The rental clubs were fine. I would recommend playing.

Great course, friendly staff, challenging par 3.

Being early March the weather was unpredictable, I played two rounds on 2 separate days. The 1st day went off without a hitch, the second day 30 MPH winds and rain delayed my tee time by 2 hours. I was able to rescehedule with no problem. I highly reccomend Turtle Hill!

Turtle Hill is a beautiful Par 3 track that gives nice views of the ocean and some challenging terrain and greens. My Dad and I were on Bermuda for 2 1/2 days and decided to play TH as a warm-up for Port Royal the next day. The condition of the greens could have been better, but since a tropical storm had come through the week before, They were okay. There were several scenic and tough holes throughout the course and I would recommend it to anyone visiting the island looking for a quick challenge. Rounds average 2-2.5 hrs.

This was my third time playing Turtle Hill. It is one of the best par three courses that I have played in forty years. The distances are varied and not boring. There are many hazards and serious elevation changes. The course was in pristine condition, with greens that rolled true. After the round, my wife and I went down the hill to the beach called Horseshoe Bay. It does not get any better than this!!!

This is a gem in the crown of Bermuda golf courses.<br/> This course is an excellent course for beginners and low handicappers,It will quickly identify your weaknesses whether it be your Iron play or short game.<br/> The course is very picturesque with most of the holes overlooking the Atlantic ocean.<br/> The course winds its way through hills and valleys with the Fairmont Southampton Princess overlooking the course.<br/> This course is a very fine par 3 course.

This course is a challenging layout so do not be dismayed by the fact it is a par three. The holes vary in length with some over 200 yds. Water and sand come into play so accuracy is rewarded. The greens are plush but very, very slow. This would be my only negative.

My wife and I played 18 at Turtle Hill as a warm up before taking on Port Royal later in the week. We had a blast on this challenging par 3 course. Your driver will stay in the bag the entire round but this will be a great test of your shotmaking skills.i wish the rental clubs had included another wedge or two but that's my only small complaint. Staff does an incredible job maintaining this beautiful course.
