(Scottsdale, Ariz.) – As the best sailors and fastest boats descend on Bermuda for the 35th America’s Cup - May 26th through June 27th - Port Royal Golf Club prepares to welcome visitors, competitors and sponsors to its ocean-side course.
“Bermuda is buzzing about the upcoming America’s Cup competition,” said Greg Maybury, general manager, Port Royal Golf Club. “Here at Port Royal, we’re excited to host fans, competitors and sponsors for golf before, during or after the races. In fact, many of our fairways and greens overlooking the ocean will offer some great vantage points to see the boats racing.”
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 underwent a multi-million renovation in preparation for the 2009/2010 PGA Grand Slam of Golf.
With the support of the Bermuda Government and professionally managed by Troon Golf, Port Royal is one of the world’s premier public golf courses boasting sweeping ocean views and a luxurious clubhouse. For those short on time, Port Royal’s 9-hole Ocean View Golf Course offers a quicker alternative to its 18-hole championship course.
“No visit to Bermuda would be complete without a round at Port Royal,” added Maybury. “We take great pride in making visitors feel welcome and provide a member-for-the-day golf experience for each guest. Whether it’s a leisurely round with friends, or a larger group outing, Port Royal is the historic heart of golf on Bermuda.”
A dedicated America’s Cup Village, constructed on newly created land in Bermuda’s Royal Naval Dockyard, is located just miles from Port Royal Golf Club and will be the heart of all America’s Cup activity. Bermuda is hosting the America’s Cup for the first time in the competition’s 160-year history. The 20.6-square mile island is conveniently located within a two-and-a-half hour flight from New York or Miami.
