Golf is one of the primary sporting activities in Bermuda. The island’s fairways and greens have attracted luminaries of the sport, celebrities and even politicians. Though most of the courses are private, all will accept visiting players with advance notice. A private club experience awaits visitors to Bermuda at The Mid Ocean Club, situated in Tucker’s Town. Built in 1921, it is rated as one of the world’s greatest courses and is testament to the genius of its world-renowned architect, Charles Blair Macdonald. Or call a public course like Port Royal Golf Course and Ocean View Golf Course to schedule your tee time. You can also get the whole family putting a round at fun miniature golf establishments, like Bermuda Fun Golf in The Royal Naval Dockyard or Bermuda Golf Academy & Driving Range located in Southampton.
