Type Public
Par 70
Length 5658 yards
Slope 130
Rating 68.0

Located just seven minutes from downtown Hamilton, off the North Shore of Devonshire, Ocean View Golf Club is easily the closest golf course to Bermuda's capital city. The blue Atlantic waters and gentle ocean breezes offer scenic views and create a tranquil atmosphere, but do not underestimate this nine-hole course as it offers a fair amount of challenge. Club selection is crucial due to the elevation changes of the terrain and the occasional strong winds. Although it is an executive length course, there are 18 tee positions to enable play on a second round of holes. Ocean View Golf Club has garnered a following among locals, which in turn has also made it a popular destination for visitors.

Great little course

If you are looking for value in Bermuda, then this little gem is it. Yes, only 9 holes, but different tee boxes, makes it 18 holes of delight. Great layout, nice views and you can't beat the price.

Fun, Fast and aFFordable

I’ve played Ocean View about a dozen times. The staff is always friendly and willing to accommodate an earlier tee time if you arrive early and space is available. The course layout is challenging with many blind tee shots and elevated greens. The greens are not in pga condition but play consistent. The speed of play is generally fast and most groups are willing to let you play thorough if you’re a moving quickly. Overall, this is a fun 9 hole course that’s very affordable. I’d recommend this course to anyone who is interested in a little golf in Bermuda and who is not looking to spend a fortune on a round.

Just book a tee time already!

If you want to play golf in Bermuda and don't want to pay nearly $200 to play the other courses then don't hesitate playing Ocean View.

Stop reading through all of the negatives, the course could use a little TLC, but it is a gem when you think of what you would have to pay to play elsewhere on the island. This course is quirky, short, but fun. I would definitely play again. The staff was great, very friendly. While the course is short, an errant shot can lead to a hole becoming long quickly because of the elevation changes.

A taxi stays on site and in the event there isn't one there, the staff will call one for you.

My wife rode with me and there was no extra charge for a non-player.

So just book a tee time already!

Fun course but not a classic

Ocean View is a 9 hole course you play off different tees second time round if you want to play 18. The tees second time round are just further back.
The holes are undulating with a few blind shots, it's actually a reasonable layout, with one or two fairly tight holes.
The condition of the course is mediocre, the greens and fairways have seen better days but are playable. The bunkers are good but unfortunately the plentiful rakes are rarely used.
For $40 It is fair value, when put in comparison with other courses on the Island. By the way, the ocean view is just from the first tee.
If your expectations are not too high and you don't take it too seriously, you'll undoubtedly have fun.

Good Little Track

Great little course with some challenging shots. Doesn't quite compare to some of the major courses on the island but you cannot beat it for the price. Staff was friendly and our round was flawless.

Nine-hole Challenge

As public courses go, this was a challenging, nine-hole layout. The course was hilly, with several blind tee shots, but the slope recognized that. The ninth holes is a very beautiful par-3 - very photogenic. The pro gave us a discount on our greens fees because there was a tournament going on, and GolfNow should have blocked our tee time. Then, while we were playing, the taxis went on strike in Bermuda! The assistant manager was nice enough to give us a ride back to our hotel. Great customer service! The bar was only operating sporadically, and the main rest rooms were out of order. However, the golf course was fine, and clearly worth the price.

Inexpensive Gem

Ocean View is a great and inexpensive way to get out on the course while in Bermuda. It does need some TLC and the bunkers are in relatively poor condition, but for the price, the pace of play and the beauty, this course is worth it. I booked using golfnow.com and was able to play 18 with a cart for less than $40. Generally the course is not very busy, so I played around in 2 hours 15 minutes. It is fairly short so the lower handicap player will definitely want to play the back tees for a little added distance. Keep in mind there are only 9 holes, so you go around twice to play 18. I usually play the white tees on the front and blues on the back.

Great views pity about the greens

Played whilst I was on a cruise, the cruise ship wanted $160 for the day but I Got a great deal through GolfNow and paid $75 for 18 holes, buggy and rental clubs. If the greens had been better it would have been a fantastic day. Managed to email ahead and reserved set of TM stiff shaft clubs that were pristine. Enjoyed the layout of the course even playing from two different sets of tees to make it an 18 hole course was ok. All of the staff were very friendly and very helpful. The only moan I would have is the greens had been hollow tined and sanded a couple of days before and I wasn't made aware of this either by GolfNow or Ocean View.
