Formerly known as Castle Harbour Golf Club, the course at Tucker’s Point has been attracting golfers to Bermuda since the 1930s. In its current guise the course is very much a resort course, measuring just 6,321 yards from the tips and playing to a par of 70 and as such; Tucker’s Point offers a challenging yet enjoyable test of golf that won’t overawe the handicap golfer. In 2002, having undergone a total redesign by Roger Rulewich, Tucker’s Point boasts a number of the island’s most spectacular holes, where golfers must safely navigate undulating fairways, all the while taking into account the strength and direction of the coastal winds that buffet the course.
As previously mentioned, Tucker’s Point is the product of a total redesign of Charles H. Banks’ original Castle Harbour Course, carried out by Roger Rulewich of the Robert Trent Jones design company. Priding itself on pristine conditioning throughout the year, Tucker’s Point greens feature TifEagle grass, ensuring quick putting surfaces. The course traverses undulating terrain and with a number of elevated tees, golfers are treated to not only an enthralling course, but some truly breathtaking panoramic sea views.
Away from the fairways, Tucker’s Point boasts a lavish clubhouse that sits atop a hilltop offering views out over the course and the surrounding sea. The Grille Room and Bar offers a cosy pub-style setting, where golfers can enjoy quick meal after a round of golf, or indeed a refreshing cocktail and light bite by the fireplace of an evening. The Clubhouse is also home to Sul Verde Eatalian Osteria and Bar which serves a selection of special dishes with a focus on the very best Italian inspired cuisine.
Additional services at the golf club include club rental, where guests can procure the latest clubs from leading brands and to help navigate the course, GPS guided golf buggies are also available for hire. Due to the undulating nature of the course, walking can be tough so buggies do come highly recommended. On-course beverage cart service is also available to groups by appointment. Tucker’s Point guests also receive playing privileges at Mid Ocean Club, which, as well as being just 5 minutes away by car, consistently ranks among the world’s finest courses.
Dress Code: For men, shirts with collars and sleeves, paired with slacks or Bermuda shorts are advised. For ladies, dresses, skirts, slacks, mid-length shorts and blouses are a requirement. Golf shoes are a must.
