There can be no doubt now that golf resorts have taken off as the new trend in tourism development in Barbados after the announcement last week from Sir Charles Williams that the first phase of the Apes Hill resort is completely sold out. Although the units were mostly likely sold to real estate interests in Barbados and Trinidad for resale or rental, the mere fact that Sir Charles could boast that he didn’t have to even approach the New York, London and Toronto markets is a testimony to the sizzling heat being generated in Barbados as a golf destination at this time. On the heals of that announcement is word today that two more golf resorts are in the offing: one set on 200 acres near Holetown and another on the terrace just above Mullins Bay at Warleigh. This brings to seven (7) the number of new golf resorts in the area including Sandy Lane, Westmoreland, Sugar Hill, Apes Hill, Black Bess, and now Holetown and Warleigh. If all of these resorts get built, the northwest of Barbados may well become the golfing capital of the Caribbean.
