Fresh Things to Do

Featured Activity

  • Three of Fore!

    Barbados is infamous for its array of scenic golf courses and fairways. Sandy Lane's golf courses offer something for all players: The Green Monkey features dramatic elevation changes, the Country Club boasts five lakes and beautiful views and the historic Old Nine is great for a quick round.

    The Green Monkey. With the most whimsical of names, this course was designed by esteemed golf course designer Tom Fazio. It's carved from an old stone quarry and the par 72, 7,343-yard course is reserved exclusively for the use of Sandy Lane guests.

    The Country Club. Also designed by the brilliant mind of Tom Fazio, rolling greens and five lakes make up the course at The Country Club, which overlooks the sweeping waves of the Caribbean Sea. Golf buffs might recognize the course as the host of the 2006 World Golf Championships, Barbados World Cup.

    The historic Old Nine. Why old? The 3,345-yard, par 36 course was built in 1961. Its tree-lined hills and stunning fairways have been lovingly maintained since its inception.

Travel Tips


  • Forecasting Your Barbados Vacation

    Like other Caribbean islands, Barbados enjoys warm temperatures throughout the year, though it can get quite hot during the summer. Even so, trade winds help to keep things pleasant. Isolated showers and other rapid weather changes do happen, so be prepared. June through November is hurricane season, but other than increased precipitation, Barbados is rarely affected by big storms.
