Bermuda Golf Academy
Located in Southampton parish, Bermuda Golf Academy is not a regular golf course. But it provides some great facilities if you are looking for some practice or learning sessions. It's not always easy to get tee time at the regular golf courses. The academy provides an excellent alternative to keep your practice going at a reasonable rate while you prepare your game for a regular course. There are night lighting provisions and you can play both during day and night time.
