Need To Know Royal Westmoreland Golf Club
Westmoreland, St. James, Barbados
Arguably the finest course in Barbados, the Robert Trent Jones, Jr. designed Royal Westmoreland Golf Club was carved from a former limestone quarry and sugarcane plantation, which Jones used imaginatively in producing the Quarry and Ridge nines.
The course, which has earned a 4 1/2-star rating from Golf Digest's Best Places to Play, has some of the best par 3's anywhere-a sentiment echoed by Ian Woosnam, who owns a home on the island and plays here frequently. One of the most interesting is the third hole, which is modeled after the Redan Hole at North Berwick in Scotland-except for the monkeys that sit in the coral rocks beside the green.
