On the grounds of one of the most luxurious hotels on Bermuda, this course occupies not only the loftiest but also one of the most scenic settings on the island. Elevated tees, strategically placed bunkers, and plenty of water hazards make it a challenge, and golfers have been known to use every club in their bag when the wind blows in from the Atlantic. Against the backdrop of the Gibbs Hill Lighthouse, the 16th hole sits in a cup ringed by flowering bushes. The vertical drop on the 1st and 2nd holes is almost 60m (200 ft.). Even experienced golfers like to "break in" on this course before taking on some of Bermuda's more challenging ones. This well-irrigated course is often green when some other courses suffer a summer brownout.

There are also "Sunset Rates" if you begin playing in the afternoon. You will need to contact the course to get the "Sunset Rates" times (usually 2:30 or 3:30pm). Adults can walk the course for $59 or add a cart for an additional $27. There are no caddies, and club rental is $25.
