Golf Vacation Destinations: Sandy Lane


Sandy Lane is a golf resort that is located in Barbados. It is ranked 10th on Golf Digest's best golf resort rankings. As such, this is a resort that has some renowned golf courses along Barbados' Platinum Coast.

The Sandy Lane resort has three golf courses. Among them is the Green Monkey, a golf course which extends some 7, 343 yards. As such, this is a course that has some long holes which are longer than 600 yards. The course is among the best in Barbados.

The Country Club course is another of the Sandy Lane golf courses. This course is located beside the Caribbean Sea, and the first nine holes include a number of lakes. The Country Club course is a championship calibre golf course that hosted the 2006 World Golf Championships Barbados World Cup.

The Old Nine golf course is the oldest course at the resort which dates back to 1961. This is a 3,445 yard nine hole golf course which has small greens and narrow fairways. Despite the more recent larger additions to the Sandy Lane resort, the Old Nine has remained among the resort's most highly rated courses.

Aside from the golf, the Platinum Coast is a great coastline in western Barbados. It has some great beaches such as the Sandy Lane Beach with sparkling Caribbean waters. Other highlights include Atlantis Submarines which provide underwater tours of the Platinum Coast's unique coral reefs.

The Sandy Lane golf resort is therefore one of the best in the Caribbean. For further details, take note of the Sandy Lane website.

Great post. My husband and I go on a golf vacation every year. We try to change places every time. Last year we went to Vegas so we could go to the Las Vegas golf club. This year I would love to go to Sandy Lane. I will definitely have to send this to my husband, thanks so much for sharing.
