The Barony Course at Port Royal Golf Club constitutes 18 of this well-known island facility's 54 holes.

Playing to just 6,543 yards from the gold tees, Barony is a very enjoyable course for all skill levels. The back nine in particular is a fine mix of long and short holes. Like its sister courses at Port Royal, Barony begins and ends at the club's beautiful Antebellum-style clubhouse.

From the tee, many of the holes on Barony appear to be relatively open. But as you approach the green the real challenge of the course becomes clear. The greens are small and protected by deep bunkers and Bermuda rough, demanding an excellent touch with the medium and short irons. This is a course where accuracy, not length is the key factor.

Gorgeous course. Great layout. Challenging but fair for all handicaps. Just enough water hazards. A few well camouflaged ones. Sand could be little better but very good placement of bunkering. Moderately punishing rough. Greens little slow. Driver tempting but not right on several holes. Very congenial and helpful staff. Worthy for multiple replays. Will be back with every trip to HH Island.

I arrived with little time before my tee time. I didn’t have time to hit range balls or putt. The service was fantastic. Pro shop looked well stocked. The course was in good condition. The greens were perfect. The course is a little short. Holes 10, 11, and 12 were really good. Overall great value for the price.

Port Royale has three courses and I like Barony best of the three. Course has some challenging holes and some easier straight forward holes. Conditions where pretty good nothing to complain about other than I few small rocks in bunkers. Greens were firm and a little fast but nothing to extreme. Pace was a little slow, I think they may have had a member tournament but they were done after front nine and back nine went much faster.

Barony was is very good shape. The tee blocks, sand traps and greens were all well kept. The layout is good for all levels of golf and challenges everyone, yet allows for high handicappers to still have fun without stressing them over losing balls trying to carry over water. I personally found the tips to challenge me and my wife and friends still had a great time playing from the forward tees. I would have scored the round a full 5 stars, accept for the fact that 2 foursomes managed to sneak in front of us on the back nine slowing the pace of play considerably. Up until that, we never saw any golfers in front of us from hole 1-9. Front nine played in 1 hour 45 minutes while back nine took 2-1/2 hours, and we waited on every hole on the back nine. All in all, looking to play here again before our vacation ends.
