Golf Taking Off In The Area

In the news coming out of the Mullins Bay area this week everyone in the know knows that work has long started on the golf course at Black Bess but apparently they didn’t get around for an official launching until last Sunday, June 10 when the big wigs from Banyan Tree were on the island for a reception at the developers other property located a few miles downhill from Black Bess and closer to the west coast - Battaleys Mews next door to Mullins Terrace. Nothing much was learned from the event except that the price tag has moved up a notch to US $300 and that completion is expected by the end of next year.

Construction is also in full swing at the other nearby golf project next door to Black Bess at Apes Hill where we recently learned that Sir Charles has taken on another partner - the prestigious British & European golfing outfit - Wentworth. Together with the equally pedigreed Landmark from the USA the Apes Hill Club is well on its way to fulfilling Sir Charles dream of it being the leading golf resort in Barbados if not the entire Caribbean. It probably also helps that they are building the villas with sand from St. Lucia and that Michael Vaughn, the current English Cricket who already owns a villa at nearby Royal Westmoreland, has lent his name and fame to the project by signing on to do the same at Apes Hill.
