One of the newest championship golf courses in the Caribbean, opened in late 2009, Apes Hill Club enjoys a prime location at almost 1000 feet above sea level in the centre of Barbados. With lush grassland, coral stone quarries, wooded ravines and sparkling lakes, the course is as much in accord with its natural surroundings as it is an exciting challenge for golfers.
