Riddell's Bay Golf and Country Club

Ridell's Bay Golf

The first great course in the story of Bermuda's golf was built at Riddell's Bay Golf and Country Club in 1922 and has never looked back.  Visitors must be introduced by a member of their hotel management, but it is well worth the trouble.  Although comparatively short,(5,713 yards) the 18 holes are cunningly fitted onto as narrow peninsula that heads out into the Atlantic Ocean where, it is said, lost golf balls now outnumber fish.

Riddell's Bay Road, Warwick Parish WK 04. or P. O. Box WK 236, Warwick, WK BX. Telephone (441) 238-1060 or (441) 238-3225 for starting time. Fax (441) 238-8785. General Manager is Sara Masters. The club opened in 1922. It was the first 18-hole course in Bermuda, originally over 5549 yards and was designed by Deveraux Emmett (who also designed the Congressional Golf Club near Washington, DC).

Riddell's Bay Golf & Country Club, opened in 1922, is Bermuda's oldest golf course.  Winding along a peninsula which, at its widest point, measures only some 600 yards, these scenic links provide golfers with a magnificent challenge to both their game and camera. 

The Riddell's Bay Golf & Country Club course was originally designed by architect Devereux Emmett who, shortly afterwards, built the Congressional near Washington, D.C., the site of the 1997 U.S. Open.  Just as Congressional was remodeled by Robert Trent Jones, and again more recently by his son, Rees Trent Jones, so is Riddell's Bay gradually acquiring a new look.

Introduction by a member or your hotel management is required at Riddell's Bay.
