A recent championship golf course addition to Barbados (opened 2009), Ape's Hill Club enjoys a prime location at almost 1000 feet above sea level on the West Coast. With lush grassland, coral stone quarries, wooded ravines and sparkling lakes, the course is very much in accord with its natural surroundings.
Multiple tees, elevated to showcase the breathtaking west and east coast views, allow players of all capabilities equal opportunity for a satisfying game. As would be expected at a venue of such high aspirations, the course is maintained in immaculate condition.
To quote the renowned publication Golf World: "Holes 11 to 14 provide an Amen Corner every bit as dramatic and invigorating as the one we all know in Georgia. These holes tiptoe over the brow of the island, disappear amongst jungle and rough coral outcrops, to provide the most sensational string of holes that can be found anywhere. It's that good!"
With its superior service, Ape's Hill Club is establishing a new standard for excellence in the Caribbean. The golf course has also gained international recognition as a Certified Audubon Cooperative Sanctuary for its environmental and wildlife preservation efforts, thus becoming one of only 2% of all golf courses to earn such certification.
Although golf membership is reserved only for property owners at Ape's Hill Club, there are a limited amount of guest fees available for others to enjoy the course with preferential rates for guests at Crystal Cove, Tamarind and Colony Club through Ascot Golf.
There are excellent practice facilities at Ape’s Hill, where high-quality practice balls stacked in pyramids, await your arrival on freshly cut lush paspalum grass. If you are travelling light, premium hire clubs and shoes are available upon request.
