Apart from the remarkable 18-hole championship golf course designed by Ron Kirby, Apes Hill Barbados provides exceptional amenities for golf enthusiasts. These include a short course, a 19th hole, a sleek clubhouse, and a state-of-the-art Golf Performance Centre.

Situated on a 475-acre property in the Parish of Saint James on Barbados’ west coast, Apes Hill Barbados exudes elegance and is surrounded by the island’s rich cultural heritage, beautiful landscapes, renowned designer shops, and world-class restaurants. The community is proud to rank as the fifth-best golf course in the Caribbean, Mexico, Costa Rica, and the Atlantic Islands, according to Golfweek’s “Best You Can Play” ranking.

Sustainability is a core principle of Apes Hill Barbados, aiming to become the most environmentally responsible golf course and development in the Caribbean. The resort collaborates with Audubon International, a non-profit organization that promotes environmental best practices and the protection of areas where people live, work, and play. By utilizing more drought-tolerant grass varieties, such as Zoysia Zorro on fairways and tees and TifEagle on greens, Apes Hill Barbados reduces water consumption and minimizes the need for fertilization and pesticides. The long-term goal is to create a chemical-free environment.
