Belmont Hills Golf Club is a
centrally located semi-private resort course that offers a demanding
round of golf on pristine, intensely bunkered, multi-tiered USGA
greens. Panoramic views of Hamilton Harbour and the Great Sound
provide the backdrop for some of the finest 18 holes on the island.
Veteran golf writer and CBS television commentator, Ben Wright,
declared that he was "lost in admiration" for the newly designed
course. Every one of the 6,100 yards of slender fairways and
contoured greens will thoroughly test golfers' shot-making abilities.
The Club offers superb service, friendly resident pros, a cafe, golf
lockers and a golf concierge. It is easily accessible by taxi,
bus, ferry or motor scooter.
