About

Type Public
Par 71
Length 6539 yards
Slope 130
Rating 73.1

Located on the shorefront of Southampton Parish, the Port Royal Golf Course is one of the most frequented public golf courses in Bermuda and it is even known as being one of Jack Nicklaus' favorites. Robert Trent Jones designed this 18-hole course, which hosts the Bermuda Open Championship every year. Doglegs and wind are just some of the factors that will challenge golfers on this course. The signature hole is the scenic and rather infamous 16th, situated precariously atop craggy cliffs that overlook the Atlantic Ocean. The hole requires a nearly perfect shot in order to reach the green. Port Royal Golf Course has garnered such a following that some golfers reserve starting time a year in advance.

Great course and the staff was terrific. Good pace of play until the back nine when things slowed down a bit due to a mix of players walking and cart players.

Under construction

While this is normally a fantastic course, it is currently dry and under construction for the upcoming PGA event.
Half of the sand traps had no sand, and there was a backhoe working during play, but we were still charged the normal greens fees. This was disappointing.

Terrific Experience!

My son and I celebrated his 23rd birthday on 7/24/19 playing at Port Royal. What a terrific experience!. The course was challenging and the scenery was breathtaking (be sure to check out the old British fort while playing). In addition, special appreciation goes out to Judy Scott at the Pro Shop, Caddie Master Chris Gibbons, and assistant manager, Steven Lambert, who all made the day even more enjoyable. A truly wonderful day!

Bermuda at its best

Spring or fall, my wife and I head off to Bermuda when our Canadian courses are closed for the season. What a joy! The people are great and the course is immaculate. Not too hot, not too cool - just like the Three Bears would wish wish it to be. The lay out is classical. The tees are thoughtfully placed for all levels. No complaints from us.

A day well spent

The course is beautiful with gorgeous settings. Pace of play was good because it was quiet, however they only put players together if both parties agree.This would definitely slow up play during busier times. The amenities are average on the course, the ladies washroom on 4 didn’t have a sink. This didn’t deter our enjoyment of our game by any means. The staff is very friendly. We booked on GolfNow and received a very reasonable rate. We played this course 4 times in a week as it was near our accommodations. We are reasonably good golfers and this course challenged us every time. You will enjoy this course!

Outstanding views complement good golf opportunity

The course is in excellent condition, the staff are welcoming, knowledgeable and helpful, and views that accompany you on your round are outstanding. And, if you like a bit of challenge, you'll enjoy the 16th hole (read about it on Port Royal's website).

Spectacular!

I enjoyed this course more than any I have played in 33 years of golfing. The pace was slow, about 4 1/2 hours. The Marshall approached very politely and asked us to pick up the pace on the 10th hole. I told him we are waiting on every hole since the 3rd due to a foursome a couple groups ahead that was taking a lot of pictures. I can’t say I blame them. The beauty of this place is stunning! The layout is challenging but fair. Course condition is great. The staff was very professional and friendly. Totally enjoyed the round and then had a nice meal at the restaurant. Best day ever!! If this course doesn’t make you happy, give up the game or get some therapy.
