Riddell's golf course is closed as of May 2016. Have not heard if/when it will reopen. This leaves 6 courses on Bermuda. Rumor has it that Ocean View might be next to close.

Sadly, Riddell's Bay has closed due to economic woes. Hopefully, someone will revive the course in due time. There is no time table for this, just wishful thinking. In the day, it was a great course.

I phoned one morning and booked a 12.45 pm tee time without any difficulty. The staff had my cart and hired clubs ready for me and had filled up the cooler with ice - this was very much appreciated as it was a roasting hot day! The scenery was interesting - some views of the Atlantic, interesting views of the... More

The Bermuda grass was long and your ball could disappear easily. The greens were in rough shape, maybe from the recent hurricane. Not sure I would play it again. Felt rushed as we were placed in the middle of a tournament.

Thanks to the Concierge another passenger and I booked by satellite phone from the cruise ship "Exploer of the Seas" for a game at Riddell's Bay. We chose it for no real reason not knowing any of the courses.. A few other travellers were catching taxis the same time as us for Port Royal golf course. Taxi from ship to... More

My wife and I took a golf package excursion off our Norwegian Cruise - on the Breakaway. The experience was magical. Course was challenging but not overwhelming. Views of Bermuda from the higher elevations were magnificent. The 75 degree weather with a slight breeze only added to our great experience.
