If you are looking for a challenging par-3 golf course, in Bermuda then head up to the Southampton Princess Golf Club. It is found in the luxurious Fairmont Southampton Princess Hotel, in the parish which bears its name.
This scenic 18 hole golf course is in excess of 2,684 yards with a par of 54. It will make you work hard on your short game.
This challenging course was designed by Theodore Robinson. It is felt club selection will be crucial in clearing the multiple bunkers and two water hazards. This is as well as overcoming the dramatic elevations (200 feet drop between the first two holes).
The Southampton Princess, as with most of Bermuda’s golf courses, is subject to marine winds. This is especially as it is facing the Atlantic Ocean in all its length. But it has the advantage of offering amazing and invaluable marine and landscape views.
There is a practice green and beginners can take lessons. The complex around the course has a pro shop, tennis courts, bars and restaurants.
“the best par 3 you’ll ever play”
according to Trip Advisor. The reviewer goes on by imploring golfers
“do not miss out on this gem if you’re a golfer!”
The Southampton Princess Golf Club is private and available only for members and their guests. The membership also entitles you to play at the nearby courses of Port Royal, Riddell’s Bay and Belmont Hills. However this has to be arranged through the hotel’s Golf Concierge.
