Aside from pink sands and blue waters, the islands of Bermuda offer plenty of green.
Bermuda has the most golf green space per mile in the world, according to Bermuda
Tourism. In a presentation to travel industry professionals at the 2014 Boston Globe
Travel Show, Bermuda Tourism reviewed some of the highlights of its public and private
courses and clubs.
Recreational golfers who cruise to Bermuda have seven golf courses from which to
choose. Additionally, two family-friendly facilities, one of which is steps from
the cruise ship terminal at Royal Naval Dockyard, offer driving ranges and miniature
golf. The multiple-day stays by cruise ships allow passengers ample time to play
one or more of these renowned courses. To further guide cruise ship visitors, I included
the distance from the Royal Naval Dockyard in the summaries below.
