Secrets of the Great Golf Course Architects offers readers behind-the-scenes tales from America’s master architects themselves in their own words. Elite designers such as Tom Fazio, Jack Nicklaus, Pete Dye, Rees Jones, Robert Trent Jones Jr., Arthur Hills, Arnold Palmer, and others share their personal anecdotes related to the creation of some of the world’s most famous courses: from run-ins with snakes to bulldozers sinking in quicksand, to holes created by accident, such as the famed island green seventeenth at the TPC at Sawgrass.  But wait, there´s more…

The 18-hole course at the Royal Westmoreland Golf & Country Club is situated on a plateau, facing the Platinum Coast on the western shores of Barbados. Rated number 31 in Golf Digest’s Top 100 Golf Courses Outside the USA, the course stretches over 750 acres of tropical landscape that provides a pleasant setting for golf in combination with the scenic ocean views. Robert Trent Jones Jr. designed the course, taking advantage of the natural elevation changes and lush vegetation of the landscape.

The course measures 6,870 yards from the championship tees and par is set at 72. Routed over the island’s higher ground, every hole has a view of the Caribbean Sea and each hole is beautifully manicured and features undulating fairways.
