Ocean View Golf Course

Course Info - Holes: 9, Yards: 2,940, Par: 35

Ocean View is a 9-hole golf course with spectacular views of Bermuda’s North Shore. The course has 18 tee positions enabling you to add a second 9 to your first. Be careful not to allow the scenery or a passing cruise ship to distract you; this course can be quite tricky. A pond lurks ominously before the green on the par 3 9th making club selection crucial, particularly when strong winds blow in from the Atlantic.

Proper golfing attire and soft spikes are required. Golf carts are compulsory on weekends and public holidays.

Ocean View Golf Course is the most central of Bermuda’s courses and the closest to Hamilton. It originally served as a course for the British army but in the 1950s was taken over by black players denied access to other clubs. It subsequently passed into the hands of the government and is one of two public courses currently operational in Bermuda. The other is the Port Royal Golf Course in Southampton. A third government-owned course, the St George’s Golf Course, closed in 2008.

Reviews and Additional Information

  1. This course is scenic, hilly, with varied holes. There are three par 3’s the last (hole #9) is over a small pond with the green being below the clubhouse. Not a long course — but a a course whose challenge lies in setting up the your approach shots. Plenty of curves, elevation changes, sloping fairways, and a few bunkers make the course challenging. The fairways shrink as you approach the greens — many whom are smaller/faster that what we find here in the US. The course has a 130 Slope from the back tees which when just examining the score card may seem high — but there are plenty spots on the course where your ball will be kicked out of balance or need a relief shot to get back in scoring position. Like most non-American courses the the rough is "rough" and the trees are fairly close to fairways. May be the lest expensive course in Bermuda. If you arrive via Cruise Ship BOOK YOUR TEE-TIME YOURSELF TO AVOID SHIP "BOOKING FEES.
