Golfing Bermuda: A cruiser's guide

See also

Aside from pink sands and blue waters, the islands of Bermuda offer plenty of green. Bermuda has the most golf green space per mile in the world, according to Bermuda Tourism. In a presentation to travel industry professionals at the 2014 Boston Globe Travel Show, Bermuda Tourism reviewed some of the highlights of its public and private courses and clubs.

Recreational golfers who cruise to Bermuda have seven golf courses from which to choose. Additionally, two family-friendly facilities, one of which is steps from the cruise ship terminal at Royal Naval Dockyard, offer driving ranges and miniature golf. The multiple-day stays by cruise ships allow passengers ample time to play one or more of these renowned courses. To further guide cruise ship visitors, Examiner included the distance from the Royal Naval Dockyard in the summaries below.
