CNN: Port Royal One Of Best Holes In Planet

May 12, 2018 | 4 Comments

In a review of “golf’s 12 best par 3 holes on the planet,” CNN called Bermuda’s Port Royal “one of Bermuda’s best tracks,” saying that “its signature hole is the sea-hugging 16th across the cliffs.”

The story said, “Sometimes size isn’t everything, and in golf a good little ‘un can often beat a good big ‘un.

“Of the thousands of golf holes in all the world, a handful of treacherous tiddlers stand out.”

“From Augusta to New Zealand, CNN Sport has scoured the world for 12 of the best par threes on the planet.

“Paradise or purgatory? Port Royal is one of Bermuda’s best tracks and its signature hole is the sea-hugging 16th across the cliffs.

“The bewitching backdrop of azure Atlantic waters could be a distraction, though.

“The interesting thing on that hole is you don’t feel the breeze on the tee box that much,” said English pro Justin Rose when the PGA Grand Slam of Golf was held here in 2013.

“You just never allow for enough when the wind is coming from the right.”

      A big thank you to Zane DeSilva and the Board who stayed the course and gave Bermuda this gem! Don’t let these conspiracy theorists get you down! #3 in the world is a large accomplishment and advertising value is great!

      Port Royal’s 16th is barely changed since it was built in 1971
