PORT ROYAL GOLF COURSE – SOUTHAMPTON, BERMUDA

Welcome to Port Royal Golf Course home of stunning ocean views, breath taking Bermuda landscapes and one of the greatest holes in golf.

Ranked among the world’s best public golf courses by Golf Digest and named Bermuda’s finest course by the New York Times, Port Royal features 18 championship holes over 6,842 manicured yards, the longest and most picturesque course in all of Bermuda.

Designed by world-renowned architect Robert Trent Jones Sr. in 1970, Port Royal has recently undergone a $14.5 million renovation, a complete makeover spearheaded by original design team member Roger Rulewich in preparation for the 2009/2010 PGA Grand Slam of Golf. With the support of the Bermuda Government, Port Royal is now one of the world’s premier public golf courses boasting TifEagle greens, a state-of-the art irrigation system and sweeping ocean views from nearly every hole.

Port Royal’s signature hole. Widely regarded as one of the greatest par threes in golf, the 16th hole is a 235-yard crescent-shaped beauty with nothing but the Atlantic Ocean between the tee and the pin. Experience it for yourself and you too will understand why Port Royal is indeed the number one golf course in Bermuda.

OUR PICKS

RUSSELL KNOX (SCO) 50/1

Two time winner on the PGA Tour and feel he is still got plenty more to give, and only 26 years old he has plenty more wins under his belt.  

We have known Russell for quite a few years, the last time we can remember walking inside the ropes with him was in a final round at the Dubai Irish Open back in 2018. He won that event in style.

He also won the WGC HSBC Champions in 2015 which again was against some of the best players in the world.

Of course he now plays most of his golf in the States and having a great career over there.

This course will be right up his alley, plenty of wind forecasted and his shot shaping should also fit in well around here. Should be a great horses for courses fit. Could be another win.  

CHRISTIAAN BEZUIDENHOUT (RSA) 15/1

One of our bankers for the week, he got us a good place at the BMW Wentworth at 33/1 along with another player teeing up here this week Kiradech who also sealed us an amazing 250/1 place that week as well.

I just feel he is in some of the best form of his life right now and is well overdue a win on the PGA Tour with seven career victories under his belt its just this one that he is missing.

As with previous winners on this course it’s pretty much a mix bag of all types of golfers win here, Not so much a big hitters track more of a feel track. Plus when that wind gets up you have to be a solid and pure iron striker and he is one of the best here.

The work we have seen him do over the past few months on his putting is now really starting to pay off. I feel it will kick on soon and could be a great chance for his first PGA Tour win here this week.

HAYDEN BUCKLEY (USA) 26/1

Straight from our boys out on the Korn Ferry Tour comes in hot hot hot this week for young Hayden.

He closed the Korn Ferry season off with three top ten’s in his last five events.

What a start as well to his PGA Tour season, I can forgive him the missed cut at the Fortinet he still didn’t play poorly that week. But what a bounce back with a fourth place at the Sanderson and then followed that with another top ten at the Shriners closing both Sundays with a 66 and 63.

This kid can play.

Boxes tick for this course:

  • SG Off the Tee – YES
  • SG Approach the Green – YES
  • SG Tee to Green – YES
  • SG Total – YES

It only a matter of time before he wins so will it be this week?

 STEPHAN JAEGER (GER) 50/1

Player in another great run of form breaking through and making a name for himself. From what the team have said he looks to have the game for around here and has looked at home on this coastal track in practice. Great each way pick.         

NICK WATNEY (USA) 50/1

Classic old school player who’s game suits around here and looking to pick up win number six on the PGA Tour. Has the game and a great wind player and loves Bermuda.  

ADAM HADWIN (CAN) 30/1 – Late addition course is set up like a dream for his game here this week.
