The Plum Tree Club situated on the Rockley Golf Course is perfect for persons who wish to indulge in golf and also stay in a quiet, well-maintained affordable accommodation.Golf in Barbados is on the rise, especially since the island hosted The World Golf Championships Barbados World Cup in December 2006. Played at the Sandy Lane Country Club, this event attracted the world's top players from 24 countries. Endorsed by this successful staging of a world class golf tournament, and offering four PGA standard courses, Barbados can now be considered a genuine golf destination.
On the West Coast, Sandy Lane is home to two Tom Fazio designed courses, the Country Club and the Green Monkey, while Royal Westmoreland is a very impressive Robert Trent-Jones Jr. creation. On the South coast can be found the Barbados Golf Club, an enjoyable 18-hole championship course, and Club Rockley, a well maintained 9-hole resort course. Both are opened to the public.
The first nine holes are open at the stunning Apes Hill Club where construction is well underway in this spectacular development.
